    Pros

    Extremely ethical, global company that values doing the right thing, especially when it comes to employees. Superior products with an employee base that is very passionate about what it is that we do. Very talented and diverse group of employees, many that are here in Kansas from all over the world. Strong focus on professional development. Being owned by Colgate-Palmolive, you have the advantages of a small company with the some of the added benefits of the larger parent company. Cost of living in the Topeka area is almost unbeatable, while the pay scales are on par with those of the parent company in NY (good combo!). Summer hours & flexible work arrangements demonstrate the companies committment to work-life balance. You can bring your dog to work every Friday.

    Cons

    Promotions and advancement potential are definitely there, but may take longer than in some other companies, especially if you are not able to relocate. Big decisions can take a long time b/c often have to route through Colgate for approval. The company has undergone some Sr. Management changes therefore the business has been in a state of change, but seems to finally be coming together and the vibe is now turning much more positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks and move quicker.

    I have been working at Hill's Pet Nutrition

    Pros

    Highly ethical company that provides proven products to extend the life of dogs and cats and make sick animals healthy. Products actually do what they say they will do. Good work/life balance - a place you can be proud to work.

    Cons

    A bit traditional in it's approach - overly conserverative - could be more aggressive on claims and blowing our own horn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more aggressive on claims through social media and traditional advertising. New products coming through are great but people need to know about them
