Very productive place of work

Good leaders provide all what is necessary for their teams to succeed. They start at the front and point to the vision and provide direction. Then they move to the middle to make sure everyone has the wherewithal they need for the journey and it’s challenges. Then, lastly they move to the back and make sure that no one gets left behind. This is the essence of leadership. #leadership #success #leaders #leadershipdevelopment#teamwork #coaching

The work environment is perfect for ,it's all about team work and we're helping each other grow everyday.

One thing I really like about Nestlé is the fact that they are serious about safety of their workers ,that puts me at ease every time I go to work knowing that nothing will happen to me. I have learned a lot since joining the Nestlé team and I'm still willing to learn more.

productive , hot and heavy for men, fast and stressful for women thats if you are a general worker

An overall clean and safe environment to work in , but the work load, salary and benefits of general workers are very bad, plus you can never get to balance your work and life proparly because you get to be on call, and you show up only when they need you.which can alternate from everyday to any nmbr of days in a week(night or day shift), late/emergency calls for when they run into a problem during a shift and they need extra pair of hands(night or day shift) . But for permanent Nestlé workers , evrything is optimal, and an overall productive and fun working environment.

Pros

free nestlé products sometimes

Cons

no medical aid and no company benefits for general workers, even though they are ones who put in more hours and more work load.
