    I worked at Nestlé full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You sometimes get some free kit-kats.

    Cons

    No progression - literally stuck doing the same job for years. Management pretend to care about your development, however do not encourage or train you in anything that might mean you can leave.
    Horrendous training - usually have to just train yourself after watching one person once.
    Too much focus on pathetic 'pillars' and NCE - total waste of time that achieves precisely nothing yet takes up so much time.
    Awful organisation, no communication between departments means some days you're running around trying to sort a million things out. Time spent on non--productive activities such as 45min DOR's is another example.
    Lack of senior and experienced staff means that on some days, there is nobody trained/knows enough about certain things.
    AWFUL management, particularly within the Microbiology Team; the worst most useless manager that you could ever imagine.
    No reward or thanks given to the people giving 110% effort and sacrifice to Nestle, reward only given to undeserving people or none at all.
    Senior management have no clue how to run a group of people, the laboratory has been run into the ground due to poor decisions made by management and this has made the NQAC a terrible place to work.
    Nestle produce is absolutely disgusting.
    The pay is terrible for all the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Hire line managers that can actually fulfil the role.
    Listen to team members and take their advice as they are the people that know best as they are the ones doing the job day in day out.
    Stop lying and creating a culture of mistrust. Be open and admit mistakes instead of denying anything to do with problems.
    Stop discriminating against staff members just because line managers don't like them or agree with their opinions about solutions to problems.
    Give the right people thanks and reward; is a simple 'thank you' too much to ask?
