    I have been working at Nestlé full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great brands, some really good people and great opportunities for some

    Cons

    Increasingly ruthless and becoming more short term profit focused by the day.

    Advice to Management

    The company is made up of people who all contribute value : the leaders need to step up and protect their people. It seems only some are valued all others are minions

    I worked at Nestlé full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was given many opportunities to try new things, grow & challenge myself in new roles and I had many support system and guide around me to be able to excel in the new opportunities.

    Cons

    The differing culture in different departments/functions/factories due to very varied management principles being applied/allowed can be quite jarring.

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult to manage teams that are spread out and have rare opportunity to meet and check in on their work. This is where I hope HR can step up to support the higher ups to see what is happening at the grass root level where value is actually being converted.

    I worked at Nestlé full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Focused on improving consumer health through better nutrition, portion control & convenient packaging options.

    - Upto 12.5% super annuation, severance pay, performance bonus and competitive pay.

    - Majority of line managers are open, supportive and encourages continuous learning and development, highlights errors on time without putting you on the spotlight and provides timely improvement suggestions.

    - With so many leading brands such as Nespresso, Uncle Tobys, Maggi, Nescafe, Purina, KitKat, Nan Ha you have massive opportunity for networking and growth opportunities.

    -Digital space for Nestle is growing and there will be more employment opportunities in this space.

    - New policy focused on getting the work done rather than where and what time the work needs to be done. If you are a parent where there is a demand to look after your kids; Nestle is a great place to work as you can work from home as required , agreeing with your line manager.

    Cons

    - Heavily process driven organization, most of your day would be spent in compliance and regulations and not much creativity. You are a small player in grand scheme and chances of making an impact and being noticed is very slim.
    - Currently very focused in hiring younger Millennials
    - Would prefer candidates with pay cuts than experienced ones who is more expensive.

    Advice to Management

    - Please retain experienced staff and move them around within business.
    - Please look at internal staff development objectives and give them opportunity to move up prior to hiring staff from the recruitment agencies.
