    Pros

    Salary is okay. Benefits are decent. However, NWNA is not making much profits, therefore, every year the Company is cutting back on benefits. More out of pocket expenses for the employees.

    Cons

    Total discrimination. Only white folks can get promoted, even if they do not have the qualifications for the job. Non Whites have to work the hardest with the longest hours and remain on the lowest pay scales. Non whites cannot expect a promotion. Promotions are only for whites.

    Advice to Management

    The competition is hurting them and will continue to hurt them. They do not have the right management to over come that. They may feel that they are making two steps forward, but, in reality, they are making three steps backwards. They may feel that they are adding new customers. But, they are only churning their own customers. The Company does not practice what it preaches.

    Pros

    NWNA is an amazing company with an amazing atmosphere. My internship experience was amazing everyone was so helpful and I learned so much.

    Cons

    They don't have a lot of room to hire interns, so it doesn't really lead to a full time job very often unless you are lucky

    Pros

    Great having Nestle on your resume. Nice bonus If you hit it.

    Cons

    No clear direction and zero accountability. Too many hours. Never get an update as to how the company is doing as a whole. Bonus is a mystery until you get it.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees instead of working them like dogs. Great product, horrible management.

    Pros

    Dynamic, open door, informal culture

    Cons

    Culture is changing due to competitive pressures. Nestle is pushing for more efficiency, more shared services, more top down culture

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show employees you are in the trenches with them. Recent job actions sent a message that Leadership was protecting themselves, not sacrificing shoulder to shoulder with the organization.

    Pros

    At first it was happy team atmosphere and nice bonuses. Family values.

    Cons

    Kept adding to our job and started micro managing our work via handheld computers(which could be due those few who abuse the system) but it became very stressful and the job was no longer enjoyable.

    Pros

    Stable category, Bottled water is growing and they have a strong portfolio. Good bonuses.

    Cons

    No training, you need to learn by yourself. Mediocre middle & senior management.
    Go to market strategies are a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics... the company that Kim built!

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Opportunities to develop diverse experience in a variety of channels of business. Encourages personal and professional development.

    Cons

    The company has become very centrally focused. Most opportunities tend to be at HQ on the East Coast.

    Pros

    Good insurance, but employee contribution could be lower.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, unappreciated, expendable, just a number, commission pay, leadership, equipment, etc., etc., etc.

    Advice to Management

    Return to hourly pay rate and eliminate commission. Then hire quality individuals. Allow employees to dictate how to most effectively complete daily workload. Don't micro-manage. Don't waste valuable delivery time with pointless meetings. Goal should be 8 hour workday. Family first, then work. Hire supervisors that lead from example not from their office or by following their employees.

    Pros

    Strong Executive and Retail Management Team.

    Cons

    Poor Middle Management under VP level.

    Advice to Management

    People leave or performance declines because of poor managers under Retail Management Team not the company they care about.
