    Pros

    The benefits are good and good work/life balance. Ability to work remote. Well known and respected company with strong brand.

    Cons

    The company is too big and takes too long to make decisions. Very political. Near constant re-organizations causing lots of disruptions. Very little getting done as people look for new jobs or make plans to move to the new Arlington,VA HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Speed up the re-org and move schedule so people can focus on driving company forward.

    Great company, big name... experience really depends on your team. Learning options are enormous. A lots of training available through internet and on site.

    Cons

    Management treats employees as disposable and selling them with the division. A lot of politics and "who you know" to get career progression and the role you deserve

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and ethical with employee rotations. Please treat people as people not just human assets

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

    Pros

    Big company with billions in revenue.

    Cons

    I work in the foodservice division and it's a complete joke. This ship is sinking faster then a brick in the water. It's a very power hungry environment with many just riding it out till retirement. Company really doesn't give two cents about their people and are awful liars when they say they care. The culture is super ego driven and management does nothing about it. Organization does not think the lack of diversity is an issue despite 90%+ directors and above being white males(and I am a white male saying this). Regarding top level management, there is again a talent gap as only a few can actually lead.

    Advice to Management

    Be genuine. Hire diversity in the form of age, gender, race, and sexuality. Don't punish those that think differently. Check your ego at the door. Gen X and Y are the future of the company. Making moving to Solon,OH more attractive to these groups.
