Downers

The global economic slowdown has not spared Nestlé, and the company has suffered layoffs in recent years

It can be difficult for employees to earn promotions, as the company's size makes it difficult for even top-level workers to stand out

Communication is sometimes lacking between upper management and rank-and-file employees.

The Bottom Line

Nestlé spells opportunity: no matter where you are (or want to be) in the world, whether you're in marketing, finance, engineering or something else entirely, the chances are Nestlé will have a position that could use your skillset.

About Nestle Usa, Inc.

Nestlé USA caters to cravings on the other-side-of-the-Atlantic, from a child's sweet tooth to a grown-up's caffeine fix. A subsidiary of Swiss food giant Nestlé S.A., Nestlé USA produces well-known food brands including frozen pizza (Tombstone, DiGiorno), beverages (Nescafe, Coffee Mate, Taster's Choice, Nesquik), canned milk (Carnation), ice cream (Edy's, Häagan-Dazs), baking goods (Nestlé Toll House, Libby's), and frozen prepared meals and snacks (Stouffer's, Lean Cuisine, Hot Pockets). Its sister businesses include Nestlé Waters North America, Nestlé Purina PetCare, Nestlé Nutrition, Nespresso, Nestle Health Sciences, Nestle Skin Health, and Nestlé Professional.

Strategy

Nestle USA has been undergoing some major changes in recent years, as it positions itself for further growth. It has divested some of its best-known brands, added new smaller brands in niche markets, and moved its headquarters across the country. 

The company moved its headquarters from Glendale, California, to Arlington, Virginia, in 2018, as part of a logistics choice to be closer to the majority of its top customers. In 2019, the company closed a customer service center in Breinigsville, Pennsylvania, and changed its distribution method from direct-store-delivery to a warehouse model, which resulted in layoffs. 

Nestle USA made some major changes to its product lineup in recent years. It sold its US confectionary business to Ferrero for $2.8 billion in 2018. The company sold the business, which included BabyRuth, Butterfinger, Crunch, and SweetTarts brands, because Nestle wanted to invest in categories that have stronger future growth such as coffee and frozen meals. 

The company has also added some smaller companies popular in growing categories. For example, it acquired Chameleon Cold Brew, a maker of organic ready-to-drink and concentrated coffee, and Sweet Earth, a plant-based food manufacturer, in 2017.  

Nestle USA is also building out its existing brands. For example, its Coffee Mate creamer brand has recently added oatmilk and vegan creamer options as well as new specialty flavors such as Snickers and Dove chocolate.
