    Pros

    Never a dull moment around here; there is always something to do. Lots of interesting and diverse projects to complete, also this is the largest ice cream facility in the world. Nestle offers lots of career advancement options for those that are willing to move.

    Cons

    At my facility there is poor management/leadership. The supervisors spend little to no time on the floor so it is run mostly by group/crew leaders. There is a seriously lack of team work here and it feels like people will actively spend more time trying to get out of assisting you than it would take for them to just do their job and assist you. Out of the 9 top Leadership Team members I would say only 4 of them are competent at their job, and out of those 4 only 2 of them are decent human beings that are approachable/reasonable.

    Also, there is a culture of bullying that is reinforced by plant management. This place has at times a borderline hostile working environment due to the bullying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire employees that are incompetent, especially the superiors and managers that cannot or will not do their jobs. Its ridiculous and embarrassing that you keep managers and supervisors around that everyone ones are incompetent.

    Facilitate a more friendly and team based approach to running the plant instead of playing the blame game and allowing employees to openly attach each other in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have young talent develop and train employees better. Upper management could be a little more selfless
