    Pros

    Excelent reputation, several opportunities for growth and for a long career mainly for the ones with mobility

    Very political and takes some time to build your own networking due to size of the company. Many times seniority is taken into consideration for promotions.

    Meritocracy should be reinforced in all levels

    Pros

    People, passion for the customers, benefits.

    Cons

    Work life balance could be a bit better. All the processes, rules, etc. and the mutitude of audits gets to be a bit daunting when you cannot more your day to day work forward.

    Advice to Management

    Allow us time to develop ourselves and employees and we can only spend so much time getting ready for audits, continuous improvement, etc. without it affecting our quality of work on the day to day items.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, good benefits and paid time off.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance. No information ever passed down from upper management. Upper management has zero interactions with off shift personnel. Mind set is if your not there more than 5 years you don't matter. Mandatory overtime, including mandatory 6 day work week. They have a "committee" for everything but nothing changes. Old guard will never change. New hires are told there is occasional overtime but soon realize upon starting that occasional means every day. Upper management should work warehouse hours since they don't think we have a work-life balance problem.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees (other than those on dayshift). Stop forcing water work down everybody's throat. Try working our hours.

    Pros

    - Tension rises by floor, so try to get a job on the first floor.
    - Most people are nice to work with.

    Cons

    - Confidentiality regulations make interdepartmental communication and collaboration difficult
    - One part of the building is almost always being renovated and no one is ever really sure why.
    - Contractors aren't treated as nice as full-time employees.

    Pros

    The people were great, the work kept you busy and the ability to own what you do was fabulous.

    Cons

    Low pay for the work you do, advancement is based on relationships not your body of work and the expectations are unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and give all internal employees the ability to interview for open positions that they qualify for.

    Pros

    Ability to define your own ways of contributing to the Company; good middle managment and senior leadership. Compensation at Nestle is a big plus - benchmarks compensation across Globe.

    Cons

    Consolidation of jobs and decision making to HQ locations and the leaders at these locations, less authority to remote sites, causing no major career growth for individuals in remote locations. Talent at various remote locations not recognized and groomed to the advantage and well-being of the Company. Inability to work cross-function, employee gets siloed into one area or another with minimal opportunities to play a liaison role. Very good internal training available but not encouraged due to siloed approach.

    Advice to Management

    For Continuous Improvement and Continuous Excellence to work, Nestle should seriously consider more coaching and training of its employees and take care of their personal growth.
