    I worked at Nestlé (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Minnetonka location is a smaller office. Great group of people that genuinely care about each other and work very hard and are very dedicated. Management works regularly to hear any issues and creates access to allow employees to help improve the workplace. It's easy to be proud of where you work based on the dedication to the products and services they develop for the consumer. They engage with the consumer at the development level with care and concern. Great benefits, flexible, compassionate and do a wonderful job and making the employee feel important. Work environment is safe, clean, and well designed

    Cons

    Multiple locations for Administrative Services, Corporate Management, Business Operations, Supply Chain and R&D. The Culture various at the different locations and makes it difficult to blend the families together.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate with the employees openly. Continue to be flexible and work to cross train and keep employees marketable.

    Diverse working environment with challenging, broad portfolio.

    Cons

    Not an employee-first company. Out of touch with the needs of customers.

    Get back to cultivating a safe, encouraging work environment, and profits will follow.

    I have been working at Nestlé as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From the basic premise of a need to change, to using agile methods for design and feedback, to rolling it all out. They really are walking the talk when it comes to how best to provide feedback in a fast-moving, social environment.

    Cons

    We'll wait to see how well managers can incorporate this. Any performance review and coaching system is only as good as the managers who implement it. But the basics are all there for them to use.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the design, feedback, adjust, and adapt methodology.

    Pros

    Super fun environment to work at. I love going to work everyday and be able to talk and interact with customers as well as bake cookies.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are issues with being understaffed and there are not enough people to run the kiosk, especially when there is a long line and you have to help customers as well as bake.

    Advice to Management

    Put more than one person on a shift at a time so that there are enough people to actually run the kiosk smoothly.
