    Think Again...

    Commercial Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsComplete corporate experience including training and follow-up training, which is lacking in many companies today.

    ConsArchaic bi-yearly review process. Imagine this...., a peer review whereby your boss, your bosses boss, and other dept. heads, if avail.(?) come to view a quick presentation by yourself demonstrating your actions or lack thereof over the course of the last several months. In theory, a good way to keep everyone on their toes and "real". The reality, however, is something which goes beyond dignified and into the realm of a by-gone era with a military leaning hierarchy complete w/ poignant comments. Which in some circles, could be considered questionable conduct, morally and ethically. Witnessed people crying and being verbally assaulted in comparison to children's antics. Funny, never saw one HR representative attached to a compete review day.(?) Interesting???....Needless to say, one is "reviewed" either positively or negatively, and "others", not including your peers, are allowed to comment as well. However, please note, one is not allowed to review "others", nor comment on their performance. There is a smaller review at the end of the year which is a one on one with your Mgr., however, it's more or less based upon the two earlier reviews and a side note on a possible raise. Not a job for the faint of heart or a person wanting to be treated as such.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo what you say can be done.

    If you always wanted to be a firefighter, this is the job for you!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat salary, ability to work from home when needed, flexible working hours

    ConsLack of leadership, processes, and employee engagement. Employees spend 90% of their day putting out fires instead of being strategic. Half the time you leave work and feel like nothing was accomplished. Extremely hard to initiate change within the leadership team to remove barriers and improve overall team moral.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLive up to aspiration and beliefs that are preached to employees. There are a lot of smart, talanted employees trying to move the company into NCE mode but are squashed before they start by the managment team.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Strong culture and values at every level in the organization

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Stamford, CT

    ProsI have worked at NWNA for 5 years, and I have had nothing but positive experiences. The employees in Stamford HQ are smart and fun to work with, and everyone is committed to the company's success. Work/life balance is a plus, and the company's "healthy hydration" portfolio of brands are easy to be proud of. Turnover is very low in my team - very few people want to leave the culture and the leadership. Overall, I would strongly recommend NWNA as a place to work.

    ConsThe culture can at times be "too nice" and allow lower performers to linger for years before being addressed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be afraid to make difficult decisions on long-tenured employees who don't have the right skill sets for where the company is headed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
