    Pros

    There is always something to do to keep you challenged and you can make the changes you need to grow. Opportunities exist and keep an open mind to them.

    Cons

    True growth comes with being able to relocate instead of being at the location you are at. You do have the ability to cross-train within the business unit you are in though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that talents may be in another business unit that could help with fresh ideas in the new unit.

    I worked at Nestlé full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There was always something to be involved with and to make a difference. Ability to learn cross functional processes and procedures.

    Cons

    Regional locations had less chance for growth opportunities and for advancement. If you are willing to relocate, you can move into different roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to keep good employees no matter where they are in the organization and keep them challenged by project teams and organizations within the companies. Even good opportunities to move between the business units.

    Former Employee - Quality Analyst

    I worked at Nestlé full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They really cared about quality and about every's responsibility towards that goal. It was very important that we as a company had safe and good tasting medical nutrition.

    Cons

    I didn't feel as though I had guidance or any kind of mentoring to grwo with the company (maybe that's because our plant was eliminated). I don't know. I do know that I would have appreciated someone caring to tell me what they saw in me that was valuable and how I could grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put actions behind your words about people growing. Don't just leave people to "grow" themseleves. We don't all know how to do that. Please don't let the slackers hinder their co-workers.
