    Pros

    There are multiple ones that can be listed, but the one that comes to mind immediately are the people throughout the company. I cannot even begin to list how ecstatic I am to be apart of an amazing company.

    Cons

    At this time I cannot think of anything negative to say about the company. I am thankful to be here and find the good in each day as much as I possibly can.

    Advice to Management

    Continue standing behind your employees encouraging & strengthening them along the way.

    Pros

    Nestle Purina is a company dedicated to accomplishing its mission, to have a Checkerboard in the home of every involved pet owner. They do this by acquiring and keeping talent in all positions. The opportunities are seemingly endless with this company. We have factories and research facilites all around the globe.

    Cons

    This is a large, successful company. With that comes the scrutiny of being a large, succesful company. We must always be preapred to address that scutiny in a calm and fact based manner. The tall tree always catched the most wind.

    Pros

    There is no other place I can imagine working - The Company Roadmap clearly outlines what needs to be done to be successful as a company in the next 3-5 years. There is alot of work to be done, but I feel we are on the right path. People are helpful and enjoyable to work with. And you get to bring your dog to work!

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons - maybe the cafetaria food could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating your vision and the company priorities

    Pros

    The work life balance at Purina headquarters is great. I also love the people I work with in the technical group.

    Cons

    There are a lot of Nestle rules that have to be followed. I understand that as a huge company Nestle has to protect itself, some rules feel like they have a purpose and some seem like overkill.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your employees about positions within your group.

    Pros

    Benefits & Perks (Pension, 401K, pets at work, gym, convenience store, on-site medical, etc)
    Beautiful campus in downtown St. Louis with a dog park
    FREE parking for cardinals games!

    Nestle Purina is a company where the senior leadership team not only asks associates what they think about how things are going at the company as a whole, but they actually respond & create action plans based on associate feedback.

    You are in charge of your career and Nestle Purina will provide you with the tools and resources to get where you want to be.

    Cons

    If you don't have an assigned parking spot, it can be a little difficult to find a spot close to your building if you happen to come in late in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and we really appreciate the open communication and transparency that you have with the associates at Purina.

    The people are great, the perks are wonderful and love the personality and attitude of everyone. Seems everyone is usually happy to come to work at Nestle Purina.

    Cons

    The only con for me is......since we need full coverage of our jobs when out of the office on vacation is sometimes a struggle. it be nice to have a few employess hired that just covered people when out of the office. Just a thought!
