    I worked at Hill's Pet Nutrition

    Pros

    Has become a very political place to work, someone who is good at managing up could do very well there.

    Cons

    Company in major decline. Senior management all new within the past 2 years, very inexperienced. 8+ individuals in marketing (30 person department) have left within 6 months with almost everyone else looking to leave. If you interview with Hill's, ask why the position is open.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the decline in the business and morale and make an actual effort to reverse it.
    At some point you need to stop asking questions and make some decisions.
    Neil - Most people believe you're a good man, hopefully you see what your new management team has done to the company and will do something about it. Try to return the organization to the "Randy days".

    Pros

    Pay is higher because they have to make it attractive for you to come work in Topeka!

    Cons

    Good ol boy mentality reigns supreme here. You are either in the clique or your chances for career advancement is nil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inject some young turks into your upper management cadre and retire all these spent forces that have spent all their working life in the company
