    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Purina has great perks such as bringing your pets to work, flex time, free development courses (on campus), fun service day activities, and events that bring together the whole company. Also, my salary has been adjusted to fit with market standards and I receive raises and a yearly bonus.

    Cons

    Sometimes the deadlines can be stressful, as with any job. Being an employee does not get you any privelages when applying for another position. You go into the pool of applicants with everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open about compensation with different positions in the company. It is hard to know if how if I am getting paid equally with my counterparts. As a woman, this is important to me.

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

    Pros

    Purina has amazing leadership, employees, and has a great culture. I work in the sales organization and it's fast paced, competitive but very rewarding and we do get to have a lot of fun while working to keep everyone feeling rewarded.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be an issue if you let it. There's always more work that can be done, and given the competitive environment, that's probably what I hear the most complaints about. My advice - manage your own work-life balance as its in your hands...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work:) But, please don't allow any outside culture to change what we have at Purina...

    Good work-life balance for my position; I truly enjoy what I do; great perks, like a fitness center on-site, store, daycare, beautiful parks and lakes

    while most of the people who work here are great to collaborate with, there are a select few that make work difficult and at times less than enjoyable. But you get that with any job.

    Pros

    This company really cares about its people. Work-life balance is great and there is great leadership. Management goes out of its way to get to know their people and understand what is important to them. There is also a lot of autonomy, and employees are trusted to do their jobs in a way that suits them. The employees at Purina are also great people, with everyone having a common bond-love for their pets!

    Cons

    At times there is some disorganization within the company, but it is being improved everyday.

    Pros

    Purina is truely employee oriented. Benefits are great and even include retirement! The people I work with have a great work ethic and are experts at what they do. Purina puts a lot of time and effort into growing their management team into fantastic people managers.

    Cons

    I work off campus so I don't enjoy all of the benefits of working at "The Square" (We can't bring our dogs to work)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the employees that don't work on campus, and make sure they are happy too.
