    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good, employees are helpful and tend to support one another. Company store offers good rebates.

    Poor management, lean culture and profit focused, too many processes that slow down productivity, workload impossible to manage, too many meetings and projects on top of your day to day job. Short staffed and remaining people are overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage your team and listen to your employees. Get your head out of the sand

    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.

    A very good salary and very good job opportunity in Switzerland.

    Cons

    Make sure your employer fully understands what you expects, and make sure you are both aligned.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to understand what the employee is looking for, and if he is really suitable for the role.

    be more open and democratic
