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

    Pros

    Good pay and good health and wellness benefits. And that is basically it. No longer a plus in one's resume.

    Cons

    One of the least diverse senior leadership team of any US Food company. Narrow minded, short term focus. The divestiture of the chocolate business is only a sign of another failed attempt to lead in food.

    Advice to Management

    End the musical chair strategy to identify future leadership. Get serious about idea leadership and open your hearts and minds to new talent.

    Pros

    Big company, global name, helps the resume. Work life is not bad and the benefits are decent. That's about it.

    Cons

    The recent re-org and move to Arlington has been an absolute nightmare. Zero remorse from upper management for those about to lose their jobs, they only care about their packages and their move. It's very sad to see actually. The company continues to operate old school. They will not innovate, they remain steadfast in their thinking, and are only doing things to either hit their targets or look good to Vevey.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Start from the top please.
