Pros

Minimal politics for such a large company, there's a reasonable work/life balance for folks, most everyone is really nice, and we compete in a great category.

Cons

The pay is average, but stress is relatively low. People never leave, so there's not a lot of opportunity to grow or move around. If you're ready to get your last job (that you'll have for a long time) and want to be paid fairly (but not handsomely) Purina's your place. There's very little bad, but nothing great about it either.

Advice to Management

Fight commoditization at all costs and limit the red tape.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pension, work/life balance
    Perks like the company store, gym, and credit union
    A lot of training classes are offered

    Cons

    Some departments do not pay very well
    Not a lot of advancement opportunities
    Political, a lot of times it depends on who you know to get ahead

    Advice to Management

    Offer a mentor program or at least communicate career paths. HR focuses a lot of time on recruiting external candidates and doesn't care as much about the employees it already has.

    Pros

    Everyone is generally friendly and willing to help. Bringing pets to work is major plus, pets on the work floor make everyone happier. I enjoy the company values and like how we give back to the community.

    Cons

    Seems like there is no internal recruiting. HR spends tons of time and money trying to get MBA students from top schools but doesn't spend any time or money seeing what kind of candidates they have internally. A mentor program or some type of internal recruiting would help people feel like they have a future at the company. It seems its more about the people you know in order to get positions. Too political at times, and I've noticed this has gotten worse.

    Advice to Management

    Set up internal recruiting. So many people work here who are looking for a break to get into specific areas. Career paths need to be better defined.
