    I worked at Nestlé part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very independent job your manager will tell you stores to every week and you drive to the store in your own car and stock the ice cream shelves without having to speak to really anyone. You pretty much get to set your own hours as long as all the stores are stocked with ice cream.

    Cons

    Job is sometimes more difficult than it needs to be because the food stores put the Nestle product all the way in the back of the freezer, so a lot of extra work that hurts your production.

    Former Employee - Assistant Brand Manager (Intern)

    I worked at Nestlé as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a brand marketing intern you experience a lot of great activities and get to do a variety of things outside the office.

    Cons

    The environment is obviously very competitive especially among brand managers. One manager was even on pregnancy leave and well past her due date but came to a meeting anyway because she felt threatened by a younger manager. That level of competitiveness is unnecessary and unproductive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more of a team environment so people work towards the same goal and not against each other. At the end of the day you will likely make more money if everyone wants to work for the good of the company and not to win a personal rivalry.

    I have been working at Nestlé as a contractor

    Pros

    decent salary, however, contractors make significantly less

    Cons

    no growth, people do not get promoted, and if they do they remain in their position for 10+ years. contractors are treated less than, charged more in cafeteria, must pay for parking.. ridiculous! and more in the Nestle store. new policy - if contractors forget their badge they must accompanies in and out of their floor. crazy! Contractors are expected are overworked, but do not receive overtime.

    Overall, its good experience because as a marketer you end up touching every element of the business. people are nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect and value your employees, even contractors. If you treat contractors as lower-class citizens you should also lower your expectations.

    Former Employee - Plant Manager in Tampa, FL
    Former Employee - Plant Manager in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Nestlé full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Afforded me an opportunity to use my experience and talents as an operations management professional.

    Cons

    Executives do not support their teams and are more concerned about their survival than what's best for the company. Few people want to lead, but desire to not make waves and go with the flow. They don't understand that to manage you sometimes have to confront poor performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold everyone accountable, Don't be afraid to disagree with your peers or upper management. People who patronize like to be patronized themselves, but rarely is the truth told when everyone says YES!
