    it is an ok job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Solon, OH

    Prosmost of the people that work there are good people

    Consmanagement has their heads up their butts

    Advice to Senior Managementstop treating the workers that keep the plant running like crap. Management couldn't even start the lines up if we left. Maybe you need to rethink how you treat us, and how you think the way it is now is gaining respect from any one because I'm sorry but it isn't.

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

    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.

    Strong, and getting stronger...

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Solon, OH

    Pros--Classic CPG training & experience
    --Progressive in improving marketing expertise and talent - creation & deepening of COEs
    --Meritocracy
    --Multiple career-pathing in marketing - includes Shopper, Category/Sales, and Innovation rotations in addition to traditional brand management paths
    --Scale of company allows tapping into vast network of strong experts & information
    --International opportunities
    --Great culture & working relationships
    --Mobility highly valued (could be pro or con based on the person)

    Cons--Largest CPG in the world, so processes in many aspects of work - stymies pace of innovation (company continually looking for ways to speed-up)
    --Must make personal effort to expand network beyond local Nestlé campus
    --Mobility highly valued (could be pro or con based on the person)
    --Generally a late-adopter in disruptive marketing tactics or messaging due to conservative nature (company making headway with a couple brands, but tried-and-true marketing methods and messages easier to swallow for organization)

    Advice to Senior ManagementClear direction with organization goals and master plan, so maintain that message. Opportunitiies to move faster in stage gate process should be a higher priority to achieve results. Investing in brands through marketing may not pay out in one year, but will over the years if consistently investing and not cutting every year.

    Has really gone downhill in the past 2 years

    Purchasing Coordinator (Current Employee) Solon, OH

    ProsGreat Co-Workers, very polite and friendly. Good team atmosphere.

    ConsPay is always at the low end of the spectrum. No more Casual Fridays or Summer Hours. Arrogance of upper management towards consumers with overpriced product.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop punishing employees for slow sales growth due to market conditions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I was only one of the first rats...

    Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Solon, OH

    ProsThere are lots of dedicated people who care about being professional. There are good brands that allow real marketing to take place.

    ConsTop management changed from the "Boys Club" to someone who looks like a stereotypical British sea captain - someone who makes sure that YOU know who is in charge. As a result, all directors, VPs and division presidents seem paralyzed with fear; creativity collapses as CYA becomes the management style.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet used to saying, "Thank you, sir, may I have another?"

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