I worked at Big Heart Pet Brands full-time

Pros

Good people, Talented leadership team, fantastic location being close to the water in San Francisco. Pet food business is highly profitable allowing for brand reinvestment.

Cons

Business strategy and priories changed too often to evaluate if the past strategy was working. The business will continue to evolve being owned by PE. Uncertain what that will mean to the current business culture.

Advice to Management

Stay the course with initiatives. Being close to right and executing is better than continuous replanning.

    I have been working at Big Heart Pet Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some terrific & very dedicated people. Great location.

    Cons

    Marketing has entirely too much decision making power. The SFO ivory tower ignores the relevant & deliverable input from talent in the trenches and repeatedly makes the same mistakes. Very sad.

    Bullies, back stabbers & brown nosers have too much influence.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and really look at who you've got working for you. Use multiple sources for project advice. One person's ideas should not be a company's vision.

    I worked at Big Heart Pet Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, collaborative colleagues. Many young working professionals out of MBAs.

    Cons

    Too many layers in management. Churns and inefficiency demotivating employees.

    Advice to Management

    No need to hire expensive consultants to tell the company can delayer and save some salaries. Shift focus and energy to build the bottom, not the top.
