I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare

Pros

A strong culture of caring and deep professional expertise. High expectations for performance balanced by fair rewards and recognition. They take the time to "do it right." which is rare in today's business environment.

Cons

Very fast paced which can be stressful. You must be willing to do what's necessary to get the job done. You "own your career" which means no one is going to take you by the hand and lead you to new opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to listen to the associates and ask for our ideas and opinions.

    Pros

    Purina trusts its employees to take business risks within reason, is flexible when people need time off for personal activities, such as kids' schedules or events and the CEO is a down-to-earth guy who makes you feel like he's one of your fellow team members. He is an awesome leader

    Cons

    Not all managers are consistent or transparent on why some people get promoted and others don't, even when you ask. People need that to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach managers to be more open and talk to their people about the tough subjects.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare

    Pros

    Purina has an amazing collection of highly talented associates who are all passionate about making products to enhance the lives of pets. You can see the pride in our associates and the passion they bring to work every day. Our products have made us a market leader - but our people make our company great. It is common to work with people that have spent decades working for this organization and they bring tremendous insights to every challenge. We are aligned and committed to improving the health and the lives of pets and the people who love them.

    Cons

    Long tenure of many employees can create challenges for employees that want to rapidly move up the organization. This is a culture where experience counts a lot and sometimes hinders our ability to change to meet emerging market needs.
    Our parent company (Nestle) is a very traditional and disciplined company. Heirarchies and structure need to be understood and respected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on the culture while managing through tremendous change. You have done an excellent job of preserving the parts of our heritage that make NPPC a great place to work. There are quite a few strong future leaders in the organization who could really contribute to shaping the future of petcare.
