    I worked at Nestlé Waters as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fast start, quick access to cash flow and transportation.Some good people who try to make a positive impact. Time flexibility.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor scheduling resulting in many wasted hours for near no pay. A lot of nepotism, a lot of arbitrary decisions by local management with little regard of negative effects on workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New blood is needed to eliminate the cliquish office culture.

    I worked at Nestlé Waters

    Pros

    Really care for their employees
    Health and wellness programs are available
    Employee appreciation is in place
    No micro management issues

    Cons

    The pay was not sufficient, and unlivable. No matter how much you do, you will not qualify for the increased bonus amount on your performance evaluation

    Love the fact that they cared about health and wellness and their carbon footprint.

    Take advantage of your good employees and promote them. Do not let them get stuck in a position with no upside.

    I have been working at Nestlé Waters full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits with freedom to balance personal life

    Cons

    Tendency to have an obligation to be "on" at all times even during vacation. "Fire drills" to make executive team look good fairly common. Tend to do projects that aren't utilized...some wasted time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be leaders and not part of a good old boy clan. Don't demand work for the sake of work. Let the employees use their talents accordingly.

    Pros

    There are no pros, it is a stop-gap job!

    Cons

    Horrible company! Why are they turning over and always hiring people?...the last 8 years here in NEast Pa, they are always hiring, everyone knows they treat people horrible, no training, allow employees to argue and fight amongst themselves....they are like every other American Co. now.....clue-less managers who are in constant fear of losing their jobs, so in turn, that trickles down.....horrible, what a joke Nestle is, could write a book.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Solid company with National recognition. Opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    "Leadership" is inexperienced. There is a huge sense of entitlement amongst several people in management roles. Many seem to have their own agenda and are not interested in front line employees giving their opinions. Some people are promoted into roles which they have no business being in just because they've been with the company for a while or they have connections on a personal level. There is a lack of transparency in the company which gives this "leadership" the appearance of being sneaky. They lack true leadership skills. Need to lose the ego.
