    Pros

    Nestle offers some amazing benefits to their employees, regardless of their lifestyle. Nestle allows the opportunity for every employee to challenge themselves professionally and offers ample advancement opportunities to those who are willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Working for Nestle is like working for other companies meaning you are going to get out from it what you put in. As with any job there will be challenges but the determination of employee will determine how the challenge is faced and the end result. The positive side to challenges is Nestle provides many tools to confront challenges and remove barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to challenge front line teams to develop creative ways to solve problems and to deliver an outstanding product to our consumer base.

    Call employees when they don't have to work. Have weekly factory meetings to keep everyone in the loop.

    Pros

    Very Innovative and competitive. The work environment is awesome at the corporate level. The factories are something to behold to see all of the massive machinery and clean work floors. The associates are respectful and majority tend to have a lot of passion for bottling water.

    Cons

    Lean operations can create undue stress at times. Work life balance challenges based on workloads

    Advice to Management

    None!

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits, 401K, Career Advancement, Leadership Development, Great Local Leadership and Associates

    Cons

    Uncertainty in the company future. Price increases have caused factory volumes to drop resulting in the shutdown of factories and staffing reductions in current factories. Company talks of being in transformation phase, but really no clear cut picture on what company is transforming to become.

    Pros

    Not many to speak of

    Cons

    Pay is salary based doesn’t matter how hard or little you work. Forced to sell/leave extra items with customers weather they want them or not in hopes they will just pay for them. Whole branch is has an anti-union stand point your not even allowed to bring it up.

    Pros

    Pay, health benefits, 401k, career advancement

    Cons

    Uncertainty of future of the company. Price increases of product has reduced volume for factories, which in turn, has caused factories to shutdown or reduce staffing. Company is in current transformation but leadership doesn't comment on what the company is transforming to be. Not much belief in current corporate leadership from field.
