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

    Pros

    Absolutely none, the CEO is an insubordinate, inconsiderate foul man. This would have been Fraser differently if I was capable of expressing my frustration. Claiming “ water isn’t a human right”

    Cons

    These idiots produce an enormous amount of plastic each year which ends up in land fill sites and our oceans. Marine wild life are killed by the millions because of water company scum like nestle. SORT IT OUT

    Advice to Management

    Don’t work here

    I worked at Nestlé full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive if you work shifts
    If you work shifts you'll feel like your never at work
    Plenty of opportunities for progression

    Cons

    The opportunities can create an atmosphere as people look for a way to progress that's not always 'ethical'
    Long hours can be hard for people short of physical fitness on shifts.
    Pay is uncompetitive if you don't work shifts

    Advice to Management

    More people managers required who know to engage people fully.
    Communication needs to improve.
    Too much pressure on front line managers, BUT some of the front line managers don't have the correct capabilities either.
