    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to make an impact, travel and build professional and technical skills

    Cons

    salary caps based on region not contribution, only way to get higher rating is to be mobile at the company discretion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people based on their experience, skill, and contribution, not based on what others are being paid in the same region, this stifles passion to excel.

    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I'm proud to work for a company that has an unparalleled portfolio, brands I grew up with and trust. I feel valued for my contributions, encouraged to step up and be heard, and empowered to move forward with strategic decisions.

    Cons

    Having a flat organization means it's not a title driven structure. We do so much more than what our job titles indicate.

    Pros

    Great people. Value-driven organization, that is constantly looking for ways to improve, while being both socially and environmentally responsible. For those that are willing to manage their own careers, and are open to relocation there are many possible career paths.

    Cons

    With any large company there are more and more politics to navigate the higher you go in the organization. Nestle is no different.

    Pros

    a worldwide company with many opportunities

    Cons

    not enough training for new and promoted employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    human interacting training for supervisors, many are promoted from within and show favoritism towards their friends that they are now supervising.

    Pros

    great collegues, extremely collaborative environment, great product portfolio

    Cons

    technology could be better. Managable now, but could be more effective at what I do if I had better tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better collaboration/communication between OpCo's would be extremely helpful.

    There are a ton of opportunities available within Nestle USA and if you are a proven contributor you will be rewarded appropriately. There are constantly new innovations coming down the pipeline, so new challenges are regular.

    Currently the company is going through a lot of change. If you are not a person who enjoys change and a challenge, then this may not be the company for you.

    Pros

    high quality leadership that is transparent about company vision and strategy; impressive board level involvement; collaborative atmosphere with really great people

    Cons

    as expected in a fast-paced, high growth environment, there is often a lot to do and not enough time in the day to do it all.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Nestlé USA as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Loved the internship program! Got to meet some great people. Enjoyed working with people in department.

    Cons

    Needed more work even after asking management for additional smaller tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use educated interns for more applied tasks so they can get a hands on experience of systems, software, etc.
