Nestle has great benefits and a retirement plan that is not so common today. The company is in good shape financially.
Work life balance is spoken about frequently but doesn't really exist. The management has a very controlling and non-trusting mindset. If they want your opinion they will give it to you. This is not a learning organization and I would not recommend it to anyone.1

Flexibility, benefits. Seemed like they were trying to offer competitive benefits but the salaries were low versus what I got once I left.
Boys club, room for advancement. You have to be open to relocation and/or an international assignment to really advance your career there.

Big name company and the health benefits are pretty good. Good recognition program and overall a fairly stable company. Promotes work life balance.
The company has lost its vision. All the senior management does is cut costs and they have forgotten to invest in their brands.2

Occasional free products. Very good relocation benefits (but also be careful of them as they come with many stipulations).
FTE working in the post grad rotational programs seem to be treated far worse than their non-program counterparts. What is pitched as considerate and intentional mentorship and experiential learning is actually just being thrown into whichever team/location the company needs cheap salaried labor at. Do not expect to be able to negotiate a single thing about your job- even when new tasks, or work completely unrelated to your program are thrown at you. Overall, these programs treat their participants very unfairly and you'd be better off seeking a regular job at Nestle, or better yet elsewhere entirely. In fact most of the graduates selected for these programs meet the qualifications for many other jobs at Nestle, yet once you've joined the program you're accepting less pay and lose any ability to steer your career over the next few years. These programs have gotten so bad that graduating cohorts tend to start shedding employees as soon as a month in.2

The people and supervisors are nice and always there to help you with whatever you need. Good pay with plenty of hours. The job is easy and the benefits are good.
Being on your feet all day long.

benefits are very good for interns they pay for housing and give you a rental car hybrid option (summer Fridays)
need to adapt extremely fast (it is a 3 month long internship after all)

people are nice. still good benefit for right now... see below in cons section for details of why i gave Nestle such a low rating.
Nestle USA (NUSA) recently got a new CEO . Initially, I thought "this is good, perhaps we can get strong directions on how to improve our business versus the old way of thinking, which was to cut cost to make the numbers". We got to meet him in the town hall meeting and at first I thought he was personable and funny. He had a good sense of what is wrong and gave us some ideas on what is coming next.... focusing on quality, focusing on reducing skus and so on. I thought it was wonderful and got me motivated. He has a reputation for being a tyrant. "his way and his way only". All VPs are in fear of getting fired right now. But from my perspective, new thinking is always good. Perhaps he can shake the organization up and motivate the troops. Boy was I wrong. The excitement went away relatively quickly with the recent action from the new CEO. On 11/26/12 he sent out a memo announcing that "casual friday" is no more. Personally, I see no issues with the idea of not having casual friday. However, it's the underlining message of the communication that is inappropriate. He is associating casual work environment with low productivity The organization is focusing on small things that are not necessarily the drivers of why our business is doing badly. The bad US economy and the mature nature of CPG in the US are really the main drivers of our inability to produce big growth. I've been here a few years so I think I am ready to move.4

Nestle's strengths lie in its diversity, culture, opportunities worldwide. The benefits are great and compensation competitive if not top of the line in specific channels.
Because the organization is so large, bureaucracy can be an issue. While resources are wide and deep, it can be difficult to procure them and get department heads to realize the importance to the end user.1

Nestle USA is the best workplace that I have worked in so far in my career. The first day I started, I knew that this was the company that I wanted to work for in the long run. The company has great benefits such as their parental leave policy and their Nesflex initiative. At Nestle, I feel a part of a team. The leaders in the organization encourage collaboration and innovation. Nestle is an organization that I truly love working for!
I have no cons so far.

The people are wonderful for the most part. The workplace is very laid back. The flexibility is great if you need to leave the office for an appointment. There is a company store where we can get discounted products which is a nice benefit.
More work is given then a person can do in a day if they don't take short cuts to get things done. Morale has become so poor that only the people who have invested in too much time are sticking it out most others are looking to leave at the first viable opportunity.1
