Great brands, hard working people, uninspiring leaders.

Brand Manager (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I worked at Big Heart Pet Brands

ProsUS market leading brands in Pet Snacks, affording the opportunity to learn how to establish meaningful emotional connections with pet parents.

ConsOverexposured to the US market (over 95% of net sales), conflicting incentives across functions, manufacturing silos running as independent cells on defense posture and survival mode.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to assess and mitigate risk, empowering and entrusting managers who are closer to day-to-day business. Foster a healthier culture supported by values, principles and true lasting purpose, which in turn will instill pride and deeper commitment. Job retention should be the by-product of a healthy culture instead of resulting exclusively from the glamours San Francisco location.
