    I worked at Nestlé full-time

    Pros

    Company has good work life balance generally plus a great culture and good colleagues who mostly are like family. The firm also have good processes and systems

    Cons

    Usually decisions are top down which sort of hampers creativity. Also, decision making is slow which can be frustrating at times because this usually affects one's productivity and then you'd be responsible for outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more freedom to make decision especially for junior managers so as to encourage creativity which is slowly dissipating.

    Pros

    They pay decently. It is a clean work environment. They provide uniforms and shoes. The plant smells very nice. Lots of supervision.

    Cons

    Zero communications, too many new "business plans" that never come to fruition. Terrible training and safety plans. They make it very clear that they do not care for their employees

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees
