    Excellent emphasis on food safety. Global opportunities exist for career advancement. Well respected brands in the food industry. Good efforts to continually improve in sustainability, nutrition, health and wellness, environmental impact.

    Cons

    Reliance on some information management systems that are slow and complex. Tends to have segmented work responsibilities that discourage taking initiative and reasonable risk taking outside cultural norms.

    Take more risks in new business channels and routes to market. Hold people accountable for performance.

    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many of the employees are great
    The company genuinely wants to do the right thing
    The environment appears positive
    There was a pension....

    Cons

    Pension is mediocre.
    Terrible payscale, you are paid based on the position and not much else. If you are a top employee you make the same as someone about to be let go for poor performance.
    Management tells you specifically (illegally) do not talk about salary with other employees
    No ability to work from home.
    Incredibly political.
    Difficult to move to other positions, when applying internally your manager gets an email and then treats you poorly for applying to other departments.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT IMPEDE PEOPLES CAREER! Stop treating employees like children, just because some people shop online all day every day does not mean everyone wastes all day every day

    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nestle is well diversified which helps to buffer against some of the volatility in the current business environment. I've had great experience with my direct managers and there has been continual opportunity for growth and development.

    Cons

    Processes not aligned to fully support speed to market that leadership pushes for which results in compression on certain individuals and functions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue pressure for speed to market as that is the new business reality, but be smart about what is necessary to support such speed which may be a reduction in red tape and support for new processes/systems.
