    life at nestle is going downhill

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sydney

    Prosconditions 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..

    ConsThe 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 Senior Managementsuggest 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..

    Think it twice

    Channel Category Sales Manager (Current Employee) Sydney

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.
