    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time

    Pros

    Kind, compassionate, and highly competent colleagues. A company with a purpose...to positively impact people's health and quality of life. Part of a much larger corporation, thus providing innumerable opportunities for career growth both in the US and abroad.

    Cons

    Work life balance. We're getting better at this every day, as we work hard to identify non-value added work and eliminate it from the over flowing plate.

    Advice to Management

    Become more comfortable with the 80% solution instead of waiting until the 100% is defined. Continue the good work on streamlining work and eliminating waste.

    I worked at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Team Environment was a huge plus. Learned a lot but also saw many dumb things that a large organization does.

    Cons

    Long hours, pointless emails, high pressure combined with job security threats almost daily. Would I do it again? you bet! Not a not of Pro's but it was a blast working in that kind of pressure cooker. I did lose about two years of my kid's lives but if you're childless and don't mind the hours and pressure then you will learn a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to your employees

    Pros

    They offer good discounts to customers with issues, and great discounts to employee as well

    Cons

    They offer you a shift then bounce you around not a set shift, and hoover over you for up selling

    Advice to Management

    Get experience Managers with people skills and when you hire someone for a shift don't bounce them around, we do have families

    Pros

    Great people. Leader in the industry. Great brands and products. Everyone has a sense of team work.

    Cons

    NWNA is trying to act like a small company, but it is now a large company. The margins are getting smaller, and it is harder to return a profit to Nestle global. Nestle global is starting to manage the business more each day. It is very easy to get lost in the politics. promotions are not handed out fairly. These decisions are made behind closed doors.

    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, and health benefits. Performance bonuses. Uniforms provided. A paycheck that you receive bi weekly. Raises almost every year

    Cons

    This company is not built to provide employees with any long term permanent placement as Management has lost their human element. During the winter months or when management gets some heat they start firing people. I have worked here 4 years once I reach 5 (if they don't fire me too) I will quit so I can keep my 401k. They will work you to death in the summer and cut you down to below full time hours in the winter. Very stressful work environment. I have had many heat strokes working here as the warehouse is not air conditioned. Lots of back stabbing as management is always trying to climb to the top even if they have to lie to get there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and maintain your staff. You can not expect us to perform without proper work, life balance. Take responsibility for your wrongs and stop passing the problem to us. It would be great to enjoy coming to work one day.
