Pros

Purina has some great employees. Typically they are very intelligent and work well with others. Management is very supportive in promoting employees to be proactive and do work "outside of the box." There are also many young engineers, as well as older engineers who are willing to help.

Cons

Salaries are somewhat low, though perhaps in line with other food companies. Though lower than higher profile industries. Additionally, depending on where you are placed, plant locations are not ideal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should further push employee advancement and try to improve senior management accessibility for employees that typically have limited interaction with senior management.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pension, work/life balance
    Perks like the company store, gym, and credit union
    A lot of training classes are offered

    Cons

    Some departments do not pay very well
    Not a lot of advancement opportunities
    Political, a lot of times it depends on who you know to get ahead

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a mentor program or at least communicate career paths. HR focuses a lot of time on recruiting external candidates and doesn't care as much about the employees it already has.

    Pros

    Everyone is generally friendly and willing to help. Bringing pets to work is major plus, pets on the work floor make everyone happier. I enjoy the company values and like how we give back to the community.

    Cons

    Seems like there is no internal recruiting. HR spends tons of time and money trying to get MBA students from top schools but doesn't spend any time or money seeing what kind of candidates they have internally. A mentor program or some type of internal recruiting would help people feel like they have a future at the company. It seems its more about the people you know in order to get positions. Too political at times, and I've noticed this has gotten worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up internal recruiting. So many people work here who are looking for a break to get into specific areas. Career paths need to be better defined.
