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

    Pros

    2nd tier brands, lots of passionate people.
    Most of the health benefits are good and competitive on cost. Lots of vacation time you can never take. Great systems. Great focus on safety.

    Cons

    Lack of True leadership...white boys club. Unethical behavior goes covered by managers at the top. Limited female representation except for HR, minorities are not only missing from senior leadership positions but pushed out if they make it to the top ranks. In the last 3 years almost every Hispanic senior leader has either left for being passed for promotion or "eliminated".

    Advice to Management

    How many reorgs does it take to destroy morale on the sales department? You keep trying hard.

    Pros

    Hardly any pros left to speak of other than you still receive a paycheck every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    ZERO work/life balance. Holidays and weekend work is required.
    Policy over people mentality. Safety worksheets preached and imaginary quotas set.
    No longer a sales force, more compliance based.
    Lose volume and space year after year.
    You are expected to work 9-10 hour workdays while your boss who often works from home is extremely unfair with the amount of help you are given for the day.
    Safety is preached, however the sense is that the company is more concerned with whether or not your injury is recordable over the fact that you were injured in the first place.
    DSD itself is on extremely thin ice, other companies are going with the warehouse method and nestle has done nothing to prove it is invested in DSD. They just layed off most of their account level people and gave that responsibility to a third party.

    Advice to Management

    Walk your talk. If you expect your sales team to stick around and put in 110%, then when I'm still packing out stores at 6pm and need more help you shouldn't be home.
    Care more for the person with the injury instead of how the injury was handled.
    If you're going to kill the Edys brand then do it already. We no longer carry it in Walmart, and the other accounts barely have half a door. It has become irrelevant.
    Instead of nickel and diming out support and hours, why not actually go back to selling product?
    Also, why is a New Digiorno item coming in through the warehouse?

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of paid time off if you stick around for a long time. Really great people who are giving everything they've got.

    Cons

    With the Glendale, CA facility closing and major reorganizations in other parts of the company, everything is in complete chaos. No decisions are being made. People have been told the title of their new job but not what their actual responsibilities are. The next 18 months until the Virginia facility is fully staffed will be utter hell as the company will be understaffed and then trying to do knowledge transfer to the droves of new people in Virginia. I'm only hanging around because I'm close to retirement. If you see other positive reviews, that person must be living in a bubble.

    Advice to Management

    Management basically feels that the company is so broken that the only way to innovate is to move the company so that most of the Glendale employees will leave & they can "upgrade the talent". Too bad they are unwilling to give employees technology from the current decade. Too bad that they've cut headcount so low that everyone is exhausted & burnt out. The CEO is salivating with the hope of being invited to the White House. I count the weeks until I can take my cash & bail.
