    Pros

    Purina genuinely cares about employees and pets- it's not just "corporate speak." My career with Purina has been interesting, challenging, and enjoyable. Additionally, as part of the larger Nestle organization, Purina provides employees with a competitive wage and benefits package, including various benefits options to choose from, a retirement package, ample paid time off, and more. From an HR standpoint, Purina is always looking forward- what will HR look like in 2020 and how do we prepare for it? What will keep millenial employees engaged? How do we prepare for the knowledge that will leave when our baby boomers retire? How do we levearage social media for recruiting? So many other companies are REactive in these categories, but not Purina- we aim to be PROactive, and it shows.

    Cons

    There aren't many downsides of working at Purina. Through surveys, focus groups, and other means, the business frequently gauges how employees feel about working here. When areas of improvement are identified (such as Work/Life balance), the business quickly takes action to improve this area. I appreciate knowing that my opinion is listened to and that Purina is continuously striving to make the workplace even better than it is today.

    Pros

    They do a really good job of making sure you have a Work/life Balance, granted there are instances when you are going to have to work longer than the typical 40 hour work week during our busy season but then allow you to offset it at other times of the year. They are very flexible with your work schedule and allow you to set your own hours. My manager does a really good job of providing me with Developmental Opportunities in order to prepare me for my next step in my career even if it isn't for a few more years down the line, and the company does a really good job of having constant Community Service Initiatives with a high employee involvement.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything bad to say about the company except for the parking! However if you get here early, then it isn't a big deal at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and listening to your employees.
