    Pros

    Can be a great place if you are brought under the right people and have a cheerleader in your corner.

    Cons

    Company is trying to pass better work/life balance policies. HR and Executives talk a lot at the top but not all next level leaders on board and so it never trickles down.

    I worked at Nestlé Waters North America (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and two thirty minute breaks

    Cons

    Long work hours, low work morale and perks to motivate employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show the employees that you care. Lead by example, take their frustrations, hardship, complaints and suggestions seriously. Always seek for ways to make their work more productive and efficient and less laborious and stressful. Reward them for good workmanship. Encourage them and motivate them.

    Pros

    Company is doing well, so it's stable.

    Cons

    Long hours. Little support. High stress.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten the hiring process. I was a temp for over a year (I had no other options, that's why I stayed) before they finally hired me. You work at least 10 hours 5 days a week, often get told on Fridays you have to work the next day - no choice. High expectations with little to no training or assistance. Highly abusive of employees. It's extremely high turnover here from bottom to top for a reason.

    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unit leaders great, colleagues/ fellow workers are great

    Cons

    Poor pay, overworked, vacation days picked 1 year in advance in 1 week increments only. Who can pick 2-3 weeks of vacations 1 year early? And why can’t we take random vacation days for school events for the Kids? We are forced to take sick days which should be illegal. If the company valued family and had a good culture, these wouldn’t be issues. Also being on salary is not a green card to overwork employees. The culture of the company from the top down is tainted.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the culture and the morals and values of the company if you want this company to truly succeed amongst the leaders. Look at all these RSR reviews. Speaks for itself. Also raises are so minimal. I think I average $1000 a year and no year end bonus. 401k is good but won’t see that until who knows when. Benefits have to be balanced.
