    I have been working at Nestlé USA part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Above average pay, great benefits (401K, discounted car insurance, etc.) even for part time. The people I work with are really either hit or miss.

    Cons

    Very hard to communicate with supervisors, extremely inconsistent hours, and very little performance feedback. Miscommunication occurs often.

    Good company with options to grow especially if willing to relocate. Time off is generous. Company is top notch with public relations.

    Focus more on work life balance

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

    Pros

    If you have a company car it makes being payed a bit less than average easier to swallow. recognizable product portfolio and category leader in most areas of competition. Good leadership however many are so far removed from the business that they don't understand what it takes to be an account manager any more.

    Cons

    Highly managed. bulky forecasting system that is not scheduled to be updated for years. fading product portfolio which is being squeezed by private label/value brands and super premium brands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are in a difficult position with our brands not really falling into value or super premium. Launch new brands and work with Trade Joes on provate label. Discontinue Dulce Gusto and start selling Nescafe in K-cups.

    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time (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

    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.

    Cons

    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

    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.
