    I worked at Nestlé full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    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 Find themselves "innovative" but their ideas are outdated.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

    Good chromatography and lab experience for new graduates. Opportunities to join groups that work with other parts of the business and learn corporate process'. Experienced co-workers.

    Cons

    Horrible management, horrible cut-throat culture, favoritism, and pretentiousness. Limited opportunity to move up. No work life balance. Extremely flawed feedback and performance evaluation process.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and flexible with work day.

    Cons

    Work-life balance. There is too much work and not enough support.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and treat workers, hourly and salaried, better! A 12 hour day for a salaried worker should not be the normal!

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

    Pros

    Large company and very well known (in a positive way)

    Cons

    Engineers are all older and typical of good ol' boys club. Not into diversification and very little motivation and incentive to enjoy the work. Engineers aren't really engineers and contract work out, so little opportunity for learning and development. No one seemed to like their job and I was told the engineers quitting was due to an "engineering exodus" because no one liked working there.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new (and younger) faces in the business and build a brighter work environment.

    I have been working at Nestlé full-time

    Pros

    Strong focus on global health, wellness and nutrition. Competitive pay and benefits in the local market. Very healthy work life balance.

    Cons

    Nestle processes get in the way of efficiency. Depth of executive talent is weak. Individual Contributors could benefit from increased empowerment.

    Advice to Management

    Stay laser focused on your executive talent. Hold executives to the same level of expectations as managers and individual contributors.

    Pros

    -Great Brands
    -Lots of talented people

    Cons

    -Not willing to change
    -Complex organization makes everything difficult and time consuming to get done (i.e. every single person needs to look at every single thing)
    -Poor leadership / lack of training for leadership
    -Too political

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible and creative.
