I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Strong brands and great growth outlook with focus on health and wellness, strong values-based culture that promotes authentic leadership and transparency, new CEO is bringing a renewed focus on innovation and a high-performance culture.

Cons

NWNA is a lean organization that has a strong track record for success, but gets alot done with a little. Training and development opportunities are largely experiential, with limited formal training and education opportunities.

Advice to Management

Need to place a greater focus and investment in training and development. Employees are empowered to pursue learning opportunities, but leaders need to understand that more robust training programs and tools are needed to achieve long term growth.

    Pros

    Great company to work. Hard working and dedicated employees are rewarded for advancement. Good work environment and team culture. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Many roles are very demanding and require a lot of development time before advancement. To be successful you need to be good at multi-tasking and working in a changing work environment.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    When big snow days would occur they would occasionally put us up in hotels so we could go to work the next day.

    If you only have a high school degree they are always hiring.

    They do fun employee appreciation events such as having managers cook you food or wash your car.

    Cons

    No opportunity whatsoever for promotions.

    Questionable business practices including anti-union propaganda. I remember a woman totally trouncing unions on the floor and me simply stating the benefits to a union for arguments sake and being written up under the pretense that "She felt unsafe in the work environment because she liked the company how it was." This was after we had done classes where they claimed to not be biased but to "educate" us on how unions worked.

    The job is very monotonous, you must hit all their talking points which makes your calls scripted to a large degree, and they review your calls with you 2-3 times a month.

    Even with good stats I was given a $.53 raise per hour one year.

    Advice to Management

    Working Saturdays should be a round robin, parents should not be automatically excluded.

    Get rid of the union classes.

    Create a definite path for good employees to get promoted to other facets of the business outside of the call center.
