Project Management Coordinator (Current Employee) – York – 12 October 2017
In my role a typical day would be sense checking projects status in preparation for upcoming stage gates, running/analysing reports based on project time/cost and project "health" in terms of mandatory data and deliverables. I would be training and coaching project managers through the processes and systems surrounding portfolio and project management within Nestle. I may also be called upon to provide coaching/training on the structured problem solving tools used at Nestle. I have learned that no one wants to do a bad job but unless smart mistake proof solutions are provided to employees, things can still go wrong. I have been working over the last year to provide as much visibility to our portfolio as possible and to make working through the processes and reviewing things mistake proof. Over the last 5/6 years the management have been through a big culture shift from a more traditional management approach to now being more about coaching and asking open questions to employees for the best results. The hardest part of the job is getting things finished. As I work for a centre that is providing direction for 3 other sites (all in different countries) it sometimes takes time to get all the pieces of the jigsaw together. The most enjoyable part of the job is solving a problem and seeing the teams attitude towards certain processes change.
Flexible working hours, good pension, free coffee and fresh fruit, real care for the employees
scope changes, long lead times for decision making as there are so many stakeholders in Nestle

Operator Technician (Former Employee) – London & Derbyshire – 17 June 2017
The management culture has gone backwards and employees seem to be losing the goodwill that has been part of the culture ever since I've been there. The pay structure is stagnant and they are struggling to hold on to their employees once they've started working there. In my Dept alone 20% left after being there only a year
Manager (Former Employee) – Washington South – 20 April 2017
Nestle as a brand has given permits to third parties in different countries to use their trademark and name which is just bad for the brand , most of the third parties are associated with the brand just for the fame of it.
the higher management does not take nay heed to the problems with the company itself.....they are thinking of short term profits instead of long term gains just to keep the shareholders happy.
