    Great People, Great Company!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Pendleton, IN

    ProsNestle was full of friendly, professional, hard-working people (manufacturing plant in Pendleton, IN). I loved my job there, and was really depressed when my family had to move out of state for my husband's job. I would go back to work at Nestle in a heartbeat, if there were an opportunity for me there!

    ConsThere was some disconnect between supervisors regarding training on/enforcing policies and procedures. The shift times take a little getting used to, and I believe they could find a way to allow people to switch on and off nights, but mostly this is a very tiny negative.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk among yourselves, agree on a plan of action, communicate the plan, and follow up to make sure it's being implemented (based on Plan, Do, Check, Act).

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

    Nestle Business Services Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Solon, OH

    ProsGreat benefits, focus on health and wellness, care about employees, competitive pay. Strong planning and leadership really focused on the health and long term growth of the company.

    ConsVery high paced and work lean so workloads sometimes too heavy. Middle management expected to do it all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on employee development and reward more equitably.

    Great place to work, but advancement can be slow

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Glendale, CA

    ProsNestle is a stable company with excellent brands. The training department is excellent and the overall processes that are in-place set the individual up to succeed in their role. The WING is the name of the fitness center and it is very nice! The cafeteria is good and the cost is very reasonable. Benefits are very good and reasonably priced.

    ConsI worked both from a home office and in Glendale. The office culture is a little bland, but that's not unexpected from a large company. The salaries are a bit below what other companies offer, but this is made-up by the low cost of the benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake people a priority and help them to grow within the company. Continue to foster positive aspects of Nestle culture and make people continue to be proud of working for the company.

    Culture is deteriorating fast.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLarge international company with a multitude of resources

    ConsWith the change in leadership, both senior and otherwise, lip service is being paid to their stance that people are their greatest competitive advantage. Communication with employees has ceased to exist except when it achieves a short-term goal of the company which is typically focused on cost and headcount reductions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that short-sighted actions have long-term implications to the talent level and stability of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
