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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Decent work/life balance. Okay pay. Free coffee!

    Cons

    Where to begin! Super corporate. Stuck in their ways. Find themselves "innovative" but their ideas are outdated. You can't move up in the company unless you're very political. Extremely hard to gain opportunities. Company wastes a lot of time on safety (FOR AN OFFICE). Very stick to the book type company. Claims to be "transparent" within, but will punish you for speaking up if you see something wrong. Just an awful work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees! Take their advice. Listen. Be more creative. Create a more fun and open work environment. Loosen your tie a little, in other words.

    Pros

    Working here taught me a lot about international business. They run an efficient operation, and have great systems, and hire highly competent people.

    The company doesn't feel very genuine about caring for its people and the world. Their social and environmental mission is disguised as a way to increase profit.
