    Pros

    Big name company and the health benefits are pretty good. Good recognition program and overall a fairly stable company. Promotes work life balance.

    Cons

    The company has lost its vision. All the senior management does is cut costs and they have forgotten to invest in their brands.

    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible timings from Factory Engineer (Engineering Manager)
    Good Pay
    Good PTO policy
    Big company

    Cons

    Highly stressful (especially for a candy factory)
    Unprofessional
    Unionized
    Apparently, you have to threated to quit before getting a promotion in the factory
    Managers are unsure of how to handle challenging situations and end up stressing everyone
    Big company so lots of paper work and useless bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Dishing out money can only keep individuals around for so long. Reducing stress levels and sticking to one direction will do wonders.

    It is concerning when you hear comments such as "This place will make you age quicker than usual", and "people bet on how long someone will stick around".

    I worked at Nestlé USA full-time

    Pros

    great benefits, excellent healthcare, 401 K plan good.
    Good Training Program .

    Cons

    Very poor upper management team that is totally disconnected with customer. They have let a premium brand deteriorate and have no clue on how to grow the business or build distribution partnerships. They have created adversaries not partnerships in the office coffee space.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better upper level management with less quantitative skills and better people skills. Grow your team within the organization, The company has a tremendous amount of talent, unfortunately people are overlooked and promoted due to internal politics. Those that question and have different perspectives are managed out. HR follows with no questions asked, " just doing our job" Sad that such a great company can be do easily influenced by managers with large egos. Many upper level managers never had the decency(common sense) to say great job or compliment outstanding performers.
