    Pros

    The facility is pretty new, employees get free water to drink always a cooler stocked, and friendly people for the most part.

    Cons

    Long hours seem to be the norm, since communication is somewhat inconsistent. Layoffs during the winter months if no one is buying the product.

    Advice to Management

    Sharing information and not leaving people in the dark would be nice. Saying one thing only to have something different happen at the cost of jobs is not what one would expect from management.

    Pros

    Excellent training for those interested in traditional CPG foundation

    Cons

    Normal big company bureacracy, politics and managing up. Can be very time-consuming and political unless you find some mentors and learn how to navigate.

    Good employees on the floor.

    Cons

    Treated horribly, very long hours, like a cult at all levels, highly unorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Respect those that work under you. Take care of the people. Treat all equally.

    Pros

    There are endless opportunities at Nestlé for development. Very big on promoting from within for those who have worked hard. The people are the best.

    Cons

    The job definitely has high demands, but pays off with recognition and promotion. Some people struggle with work life balance if they can't keep up with the fast pace.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to recommend, Nestlé is a great place to work and values their employees for their hard work. You set the track for your future.

    Pros

    Not much really besides a pension and okay PTO policy if you were from a legacy company

    Cons

    I worked for this company for 7 years so carefully consider the below: 1. Promotions are given to the people who are the pets of management no regard for qualifications/skill set. 2. People with literally zero people skills are promoted even when their prior projects were deemed complete failures 3. If you are not willing to move forget being promoted. Same applies if you are not a woman and/or minority. 4. Literally years passed and not a single male with high qualifications was promoted while extremely unskilled others promoted several times within a year. 5. Pay raises don't even pace inflation @ 2% per annum 6. Bonus payouts are randomly awarded 7. HR department is useless and grows by the minute 8. Leadership only looks out for themselves not their people and will throw away employees within even blinking. 9. You have to be on the short list or you will never get a bonus and/or merit. Ranking process is a joke and is not transparent 10. Some Directors are literally the worst people managers I have ever seen in a professional workplace 11. Sharing new approaches to things is talked about but when you share it is frowned upon unless it agrees with management's view on the topic. 12. Surprised some parts of management have the mental faculties to get out of bed in the morning let alone lead 13. All people are essentially expendable to this company nothing is sacred/valued

    Advice to Management

    You need to eliminate/replace entire layers at the VP and director level to get rid of deeply rooted despots because they are ruining the company from the bottoms up and it will not end until they are removed from the company (I am not talking about giving them a role in Vevey either I mean eliminate them from the GAL)

    Pros

    Good. Benefits, good workers, Local manager fair.

    Cons

    Constant change, pay kept decreasing and work load increasing. Kept changing pay calculations for commission so you never could make more money. People in stores treat you like dogs. Management doesn't back you up.

    Advice to Management

    Localize decisions. Create a positive working environment with real opportunity.

    Pros

    Some of the people are great that work on the floor. I am no longer there.

    Cons

    Management is awful, they are very obvious when you do something wrong. They believe in letting everyone know. The building needs work, there is mold growing due to a leaking ice machine. Yet, they will not fix. The training is terrible, yet I see why there is no real training room or plan of action. They let a young 25 year old run the training and when management is not in the room the trainer curses like a sailor. They need to have better light withing the building. The vibe is negative. Yet that is part of the management's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ice machine and management needs to go through a training class on how to train. They also need to make the building safe as there are many unsafe things there. I would say also get better lights. Adjust their attitudes are the only people they will attract is the younger generation who does not realize how other companies treat quality people.
