    I have been working at Freshpet full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Working at Freshpet means you can be heard. We have smaller marketing teams covering a lot of ground, so when I started at Freshpet I was thrilled to know I'd be exposed to many different things and grow along the way. I've been at the company for a few years and I love that if you speak up and share your opinions, it can be a collaborative and inclusive space. Lots of opportunity to get involved in new projects if...

    Cons

    Like I mentioned teams are smaller, so you'll have to be prepared to pick up things quickly and also be a self-starter. But these are good qualities to own.

  2. Working at corporate (Secauscus) or plant (Bethelehem, meat processing) may change your perspective.

    I worked at Freshpet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Above average benefits, fast growing.

    Cons

    Employees with longer tenure in managemnet dominate outcome of decisions. Bethleham facility is crowded with 20 sq . feet of work space for office employees. The manufacturing floor is at 40 deg F. If your job requires any time on production floor, it could be noisy, uncomfortably cold, smelly and walking over meat. It is a publicly owned company with debt and very little profit - check financial reports. The management...

    I have been working at Freshpet full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great management that listens and allows you to create new opportunities within your field and work across different functionalities, depending on your skills and interests. Smaller company culture that looks for employees with an entrepreneurial drive. Those who are self starters will thrive at this company.

    Cons

    While there is ample growth opportunity, I'm finding the compensation benefits to stay long-term is why people choose to move on. That said, those who choose to stay here are "lifers."

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate employee's anniversaries and compensate the employees fairly that choose to stay, grow and take on more responsibilities.

  5. Freshpet is the most rewarding and satisfying company I've ever worked for!

    I have been working at Freshpet full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been with Freshpet for 1 1/2 years now. Freshpet has been the best company I've worked for because they really do value and care about their employees. Everyone's very friendly and honest. The company communicates important matters which makes me very proud to work for a company that's working to make themselves a good place to work and a leader in their industry. We have great perks as employees and great benefits...

    Cons

    We're running out of room due to our rapid growth :)!

    Advice to Management

    to continue to be the way they are and to continue to communicate to their employees issues that matter and make an impact in our working culture! Good leadership takes humility, determination, and empowerment!

  6. Freshpet is a sick place to work! Vital culture & values

    I have been working at Freshpet full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been working at Freshpet for almost 2 years, and upon review it's been one of the best professional experiences of my career. From leadership to the support staff, everyone here is a pet lover themselves, and committed to making food they would be proud to fee their own dog or cat. I think that shared mindset is what creates a culture that's so oriented around doing the right thing, no matter what department you're...

    Cons

    I know this is trite but to me there really aren't any big deal issues I would consider a "con." We get healthy snacks in the office every day and all the free dog food we need (don't make the fake vomit noise, it's fresh and smells great!) What is there to not like haha

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the values of the organization as we grow. It could become easy to start "thinking like a big company," but that would change the culture and it's not the Freshpet way. But I have confidence that we are on the right track.

    I have been working at Freshpet full-time

    Pros

    I truly feel that Freshpet really values its employees and wants them to succeed. I feel so fortunate to work at a company that appreciates the effort and time that I put in day in and day out. I'm not in a senior management role, and yet everyone from the CEO to the company co-founder knows my name, converses with all employees (no matter their role) on a daily basis, and shows a genuine interest in my ideas and input....

    I worked at Freshpet full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Freshpet Dog Food company provides a wonderful work environment to their employees. They also have very high quality dog food manufacturing process because their employees are working from the long run almost more than twelve years, no one leave the Freshpetdogfood company because, they go out of their way to look after their employees. I always like to come to work with smiles on my face.

    Cons

    Although they had nothing now to do with the #freshpet company but still a con. Now they are focusing on how to help freezing the food and stores to find the quality #freshpet product in locality.

Holiday bonus. Thanksgiving turkeys. IF the company does good...

    Can't leave building once there due to fear of anyone bringing in any contaminates from the outside which is understood.
