    Pros

    The people here are awesome. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help out as much as they can. Teamwork is something that is big here. They respect the work - life balance and are willing to work with you when issues arise. They know good talent when they see it and will do everything in their power to not let you go. You can see the career potential here as well. Internal, or "Orgainc" growth is strongly used here. I couldn't imagine working anywhere else. I see myself with this company for the next 10 plus years! NWNA Rocks!

    Cons

    There are a lot of great people here and sometimes vertical movement can take some time.

    Advice to Management

    To keep up the great work and let me know when things may happen that effect me and my job.

    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Non-competitive environment. You can chart your course and move up in the organization without competing with your peers for positions. If the company wants to promote you, they will. It doesn't mean someone else won't be promoted or that you have to "wait your turn". Great for people who are ambitious and smart.

    Not about face-time. Everyone leaves the office by 5:30pm so it provides great work-life balance.

    Cons

    It is a sales led organization rather than marketing led. This means that a lot of decisions are made based on what a customer wants rather than what is strategically and financially right for the business.

    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at NWNA for 5 years, and I have had nothing but positive experiences. The employees in Stamford HQ are smart and fun to work with, and everyone is committed to the company's success. Work/life balance is a plus, and the company's "healthy hydration" portfolio of brands are easy to be proud of. Turnover is very low in my team - very few people want to leave the culture and the leadership. Overall, I would strongly recommend NWNA as a place to work.

    Cons

    The culture can at times be "too nice" and allow lower performers to linger for years before being addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make difficult decisions on long-tenured employees who don't have the right skill sets for where the company is headed.

    Pros

    The executive leadership team is experienced and can be trusted. There are great opportunities to advance and grow your career. The pay/benefits are very competitive.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a challenge, but you don't necessarily have to work excessively. Some times of year require more of a time commitment than others, but the company rewards/recognizes you appropriately for what you do.

    Pros

    Great company to work. Hard working and dedicated employees are rewarded for advancement. Good work environment and team culture. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Many roles are very demanding and require a lot of development time before advancement. To be successful you need to be good at multi-tasking and working in a changing work environment.
