Good place to work

Intern (Current Employee)

I have been working at Nestlé as an intern for less than a year

ProsAlways take care to provide you with the best work ambiance possible. The work culture changes from dept to dept. Every person is given the due (s)he deserves but thats it

ConsSuperiors may look down upon you at times. It all comes down to which dept you are a part of. The cooler the product in outlook, the better culture will be of the dept

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to inculcate a better relationship among peers

One of the largest Food company of the World

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Calcutta

I have been working at Nestlé full-time for more than 8 years

ProsStrong brands, values are being strictly followed. Good compnay to work for where an individual can grow and can show his talent to the rest of the world inside Nestle family.

ConsAt present trying to diversify in too many sectors and that is probably hitting the bottam line of the compnay. When a company gets bigger and aims at a rapid growth within a limitd time span several critical problem crops up. Nestle is facing that issue very srtongly now, specially in subcontinent market.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to stick to the main strong brands and keep them developing by continuous R & D. Need to curtail the unnecessary overhead costs by identifying the root causes which will help the brands to regain the desired bottam line.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
