    I worked at Nestlé full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    generally good work/life balance, nice culture, generally decent pay and benefits, global company with large brands

    Cons

    mediocre/poor people stay and end up getting promoted; extremely slow in making decisions; lack of innovation (tends to launch me-too products), lack of support for brands, many people in senior positions do not deserve the salaries they are making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote people based on their work and skill set, not who they know; invest more in marketing

    I worked at Nestlé as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Having employing pricing on every Nestle product. You have to go to one of their Nestle stores to buy stuff. All the operators there are very friendly and helpful. You will have a great time working with them!

    Cons

    Pay is really low, and you are on salary. So it means they can make you work tons of overtime without paying you. The management team there is very disorganized. You are always pressured to perform.

    I worked at Nestlé full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
