Incredible Learning Experience

Intern Engineer (Former Employee)
Flagstaff, AZ

I worked at Nestlé Purina PetCare as an intern for more than a year

ProsYou are given a lot of freedoms to learn and grow as an engineer here. You are given your own projects to manage, so you get excellent experience.

ConsNot true for all internships, but I worked during the school year which I found to be very stressful.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Successful company full of passionate people

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Nestlé Purina PetCare

ProsLots of opportunity for a varied and successful career, always looking to develop and move forward, very passionate people who love the category they work in - if you love animals this is the place to work, great resources due to it's size, good training & development, opportunity to work on big brands and projects that make a difference

ConsCan be somewhat conservative and slow, averse to risk taking. Administration and bureaucracy can be time consuming. Depends on the management and leadership, but micro management can creep in at times.

Can't Imagine Ever Leaving

Manager In Human Resources (Current Employee)

I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time

ProsThis is an excellent company to work for- not only in terms of pay, benefits, job security, and pride in the products we produce, but it's a company that really cares for it's employees both personally and professionally. If you want a place where you can contribute, learn, grow, and be rewarded for top performance, this is an excellent place to make your career.

ConsNestle has multiple operating companies in the US- overall, there are opportunities to leverage best practices from company to company. This is done to some extent but, in my opinion, not leveraged to its fullest.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.... I'm a proud member of the NPPC team!

Good company. Passionate people.

Management Trainee (Former Employee)
Davenport, IA

I worked at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time for less than a year

ProsThe employees care about what they do. The environment was very relaxed and professional at the same time.

ConsThere are no cons that I can think of for Nestle Purina Pet Care other than maybe smelling like pet food. That might be a problem for some.

BEST Company in the world!

Marketing&Sales (Current Employee)

I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time for more than a year

ProsThis place truly understands work/life balance. The culture creates a very flexible work environment, and everyone always seems happy here, which makes it much more enjoyable to come to work everyday. Purina lives by its "5 Talls" and fully lives up to its tagline - "Your Pet, Our Passion." I can't imagine ever leaving this company!

ConsBecause everyone loves working here so much, it's rare that people leave, and Purina doesn't seem to like "letting people go," which can lead to people staying in their positions longer than they probably should be, or getting "shuffled" to an unsuitable position. It's not in a sense that prevents opportunity for upward mobility, but more that people get "shuffled" around at the senior leadership level, which can result in people getting positions that don't quite fit their skill sets. It's like Purina simply doesn't know what do with them because they don't want to let them go.

The only thing stronger than the brands are the people at Purina!

I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat culture, positive senior leadership. This company loves cats and dogs and its totally committed to quality and safety. NPPC is a rare find as large employer in the USA

ConsMany key leaders and managers retiring now and the next ten years, while this creates a great deal of opportunity, a tremendous amount of wisdom and experience we leaving in a short time frame.
