    Pros

    I feel proud working for such a transparent, purposeful, and well-branded company. There is security in knowing that Nestle will be around for another 100 years. The company invests in you and wants you to be successful.

    Cons

    With Nestle being such a large company, there is a lot of red tape, hierarchy, and many procedures and policies (standardizations) to keep straight and follow.

    Advice to Management

    Some advice would be to trust in your employees to make the right choice and back them even when they make a mistake.

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

    Pros

    They encourage you to continue learning and create opportunities to excel.

    Cons

    The work life balance is at an all time low. They will work you for as long as you are there and the hours can become a little overbearing and you can reach burnout very quickly.

    I have been working at Nestlé full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    By far, the people are the greatest asset at Nestlé but compensation, benefits, and perks are impressive. Glendale HQ offers a gym and a company store.

    Cons

    Career growth opportunities are very limited, being a "flat organization". So, there is a good chance that you may be in the same role for several years; unless you are one of the fortunate few that get onto the "Fast Track" coming out of college.

    Pros

    There was always something to be involved with and to make a difference. Ability to learn cross functional processes and procedures.

    Cons

    Regional locations had less chance for growth opportunities and for advancement. If you are willing to relocate, you can move into different roles.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to keep good employees no matter where they are in the organization and keep them challenged by project teams and organizations within the companies. Even good opportunities to move between the business units.
