    The benefits and salary are great, the work is exciting.

    This group is being overwhelmed with too much PC diversity for no other reason than Appearances.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work life balance at Purina headquarters is great. I also love the people I work with in the technical group.

    Cons

    There are a lot of Nestle rules that have to be followed. I understand that as a huge company Nestle has to protect itself, some rules feel like they have a purpose and some seem like overkill.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your employees about positions within your group.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits & Perks (Pension, 401K, pets at work, gym, convenience store, on-site medical, etc) Beautiful campus in downtown St. Louis with a dog park FREE parking for cardinals games! Nestle Purina is a company where the senior leadership team not only asks associates what they think about how things are going at the company as a whole, but they actually respond & create action plans based on associate feedback. You are in charge of your career and Nestle Purina will provide you with the tools and resources to get where you want to be.

    Cons

    If you don't have an assigned parking spot, it can be a little difficult to find a spot close to your building if you happen to come in late in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and we really appreciate the open communication and transparency that you have with the associates at Purina.
