    I have been working at Nestlé

    Pros

    conditions are quite good if you are based in the head office however when in the field it is a totally different story.. Office staff are treated to massages at work, flu shots regular parties and activities on level 4..

    Cons

    The company has made a lot of people redundant over past three years leaving those still there very nervous about future careers .. especially those in route/impulse confec market where the stores once serviced by thirty or more people are no serviced by 9 or ten. in nsw. most states now have half if not less the amount of people with the same expecations..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    suggest you simply talk to the staff let them know the long term agenda and dont let them burn out.. or perhaps thats the idea .. let em get disgruntled then you dont have to pay them out..

    Pros

    You can learn while experimenting.
    Great to have it on your CV

    Cons

    Everything needs to be approved by the leadership team in Switzerland
    Everybody playing politics and holding cards strongly to chests

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The biggest challenge you have is to match what everybody thinks and expect out of a company like Nestle to the actual culture you have wtihin it.

    Highly dissapointing how office politics and toxic groups can destroy people´s carrear and conficence on it´s talent. It´s not a culture that embraces teams or individual´s strengths. People is just arrogant.

    Pros

    Great profitable products across alot of categories. Good family worlk life balance No weekends or shift work with the rewards for good work ethic

    Cons

    Company is extremely grocery focussed and almost entirely Top heavy with more nutritionists and marketing people employed than sales people. Company does not understand the small business neeeds of Australia in its route market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many reviews completed through the year at many levels, my suggestion would be to involve lower management and utilise those findings

    Pros

    Fantastic work life balance, they give you a lot of time to spend with family. No phone calls when home. Weekends mean weekends. Very good culture of learning, training and cultivating leadership. A lot of responsibility is given. Coaching is required when required.

    Cons

    Slow, sometimes painfully slow due to bureaucracy. There are long procedures to get little unimportant stuff also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out the steps. Keep the employee morale high. Promote based on performance and not tenure.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, good benefits, plenty of Training opportunities available. They provide just enough to employees to make it really difficult to leave.

    Cons

    They don't really do anything to make employees want to stay either.
