    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare

    Pros

    Great people, good work/life balance, emphasis on training. Purina is very good at being inclusive, routinely bringing together all levels within the organization for planning purposes. Leadership fights for raises when appropriate. Very proud employees who believe in the products! ...and pet friendly!!!!

    Cons

    Interviewing process that alienates strong candidates; nepotism, strong Midwest presence that requires relocation for many desirable roles.

    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits are best for the area.

    Lack of advancement. Upper management wants to keep you locked into a position while you watch others move up. Work life balance

    Great Company to Work for with great benefits. Amazing work-life balance, flexible working schedule, bring your pets to work availability.

    Cons

    There is no clear career path in Finance department. This is different in Marketing department, where promotions are very common.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard to get fired or demoted.

    Cons

    Not enough people doing hands on work. Too many directors, managers, project managers, ingredient managers. Many consider themselves experts, but have no plant experience and don't have leadership qualities. Most will request reports or demand follow up with vendors and factories that they themselves have never done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold your managers/directors accountable.

    I worked at Nestlé Purina PetCare as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    -you can bring your dog to work which is a major benefit
    -flex hours for most departments, meaning you can choose your own hours within a certain window
    -dog park on campus and community involvement

    Cons

    -a lot of employees are contract based, meaning they don't receive any benefits (from utilizing the company gym to bringing their pet)
    -campus is extremely large and a lot of times upper management won't make time to meet with you
    -didn't see much investment in their employees... primary focus of the management was to move themselves up in the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more full-time spots for employees that want to be there. If you invest in your people, they will invest in you.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture of bettering the life of pets can be seen throughout the entire organization in every department. There is a passion at Nestlé Purina that I feel is matched in few companies. The work/life balance here is outstanding. It's understood by all managers. It's a culture here that Purina prides itself in. And the fact we still get a pension is outstanding.

    Cons

    The base salary pay is middle of the range at best. The cost of the great work life balance slightly comes at the expense of base salary. Of course we also get a pension, so that's somewhat off set. Other than that employees really do have it good here, not much to complain about!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to take a few risks. We clearly missed the boat on the ultra category. I know our conservative nature at Purina has proved to withstand the test of time. But every once in a while we must venture out of our comfort zone.
