    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit Fast paced Good people

    Cons

    New leadership has created a toxic and unstable environment. Leadership team doesn’t value employees and has done a number of things to make it clear you are just a number. Culture doesn’t exist. Do more for less. Constant cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn’t listen anyways...

    Pros

    Overtime pay during seasonal work days Employer RRSP Contribution Program

    Cons

    Review : Hope, BC - Unqualified people in the management. This is a micro factory of Nestle in North America. There are many unqualified and inexperienced employees put up in the management. Internal job postings would ask for a university degrees plus 3 to 5 years of experience, but some of the management employees are in place at the moment who won't even qualify or fulfil the requirement to sit in an interview... for these jobs. In addition, these employees are lacking on communication skills and to understand North American work environment. No on site permanent HR person makes it really difficult for floor people when they have any concerns about their supervisors. Lack of morale in workplace Unqualified people put up in the management Lack of respect for people on the floor Short staffing makes it hard and difficult for people on the floor to work in a safe manner No standard work or performance review procedures in place No full time HR on site Job threats when people on the floor makes any mistake, but not a single action taken against any serious mistake made by management employee(s)

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    10+ years with NWNA, and I can tell you there has never been a dull moment. This is a very fast paced organization that simply requires an employee at any level to be nimble, take initiative, demonstrate a willingness to learn and be accountable to your results. Roles often have an overflowing plate; however, you typically have the ability to navigate your path and have a large role in determining the outcome.

    Cons

    Fast paced, ever changing = can be challenging at times; limited resources.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees; if you don't plan on addressing issues raised in a survey, then consider asking different questions. Ask only what you are willing to address knowing you are getting feedback from employees at all levels.
