    Former Employee - District Sales Leader in Portland, OR (US)

    I worked at Nestlé USA

    Pros

    Lots of internal learning, fair and positive environment conducive to growing both personally and professionally. Package of incentives and bonus was solid but bonus structure was not clear.

    Cons

    Challenging coming from outside the organization to learn the acronyms and ropes quickly. Not much turnover at the district sales or above level so many managers were promoted from entry level up but still had same responsibilities as managers with better education and levels of experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify company structure in some instances to be able to respond to the needs of specific geographic areas. Additionally, I was laid off as well as my team due to a shoddy integration program that happened prior to my arrival. They ended up shutting down my market area and 12-15 market areas nationally due to lack of product integration and gave the business to distributors. Timing on layoff was quite selfish and coincided days after the most profitable week for this facet of the company. I had hopes of spending many years with this company and it was cut short in combination of circumstances beyond my control and lack of placement for displaced managers.

    Mixed bag

    I have been working at Nestlé USA

    Pros

    Relatively stable company; strong brands that are household names; can benefit from extensive training, depending on role, location & tenure with the company. Management is making attempts to listen and implement ideas generated from staff.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be non existent; increasing work load with no additional resources to manage; told to "work it out or work smarter" to meet increasing demands; diversity lacking in mid to senior levels of management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication flow to rebuild trust lost with recent org changes/restructuring
