    Pros

    There are multiple ones that can be listed, but the one that comes to mind immediately are the people throughout the company. I cannot even begin to list how ecstatic I am to be apart of an amazing company.

    Cons

    At this time I cannot think of anything negative to say about the company. I am thankful to be here and find the good in each day as much as I possibly can.

    Advice to Management

    Continue standing behind your employees encouraging & strengthening them along the way.

    Pros

    Nestle Purina is a company dedicated to accomplishing its mission, to have a Checkerboard in the home of every involved pet owner. They do this by acquiring and keeping talent in all positions. The opportunities are seemingly endless with this company. We have factories and research facilites all around the globe.

    Cons

    This is a large, successful company. With that comes the scrutiny of being a large, succesful company. We must always be preapred to address that scutiny in a calm and fact based manner. The tall tree always catched the most wind.

    Pros

    There is no other place I can imagine working - The Company Roadmap clearly outlines what needs to be done to be successful as a company in the next 3-5 years. There is alot of work to be done, but I feel we are on the right path. People are helpful and enjoyable to work with. And you get to bring your dog to work!

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons - maybe the cafetaria food could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating your vision and the company priorities

    Pros

    Great benefits packages to choose from. Perks on campus - gym, bank, company store, mailroom, etc. A good work/life balance can be achieved, depending on your role. I've met some amazing people at NPPC.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities from a training perspective. The OD group does not hire from within, regardless of an employee's education, demonstrated performance or skill set. The company has some work to do in terms of hiring and retaining minority talent.

    Pros

    Generally Good People. Good Management trainee program.

    Cons

    Production facilities are run 180 degrees from Headquarters (which is typical). They work 295-300 days a year. Most facilities are aging/older equipment. There are also many roles that are not compensated correctly for the value they bring to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade facilities, pay people correctly.
