    Pros

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

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement once you reach sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Ok starting pay coworkers where cool and help you make it threw long hours.lots of over time if thats your thing

    Cons

    not alot of room to move around way under staffed . management does not listen to you they like robot workers just work and dont say nothing. no say in over time even thow every one knows they need more people to help. and you get 5 sick days a year but it shocked me that you get a point even when you have a doctors note or they clearly see you are sick. they prech safty but its a matter of time before some one gets hurt from being forced to work when they are sick because the fear of pointing out and being fired trust me it happend to me they do not care will use you up and spit you out and get the next robot to replace you very high turn over rate because its all about the bottom line

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a heart take care of the people that bust there butt every day for you. listen to your workers and be fair and treat every one the same just not the few people you are friends with
