    Pros

    People are smiling, happy, always willing to help lend a hand or share knowledge to help you do your job better. The health benefits are top tier, the work is challenging, yet energizing. The Co-Workers always want to help you achieve your very best. When you first come into the company, they assign someone to you to teach you the culture, the industry, the business and what you need to know to be successful. Every so often, my boss will send me to a class to learn new skills and put them to immediate use! I have grown so much working for this company it is unbelievable how much I've grown as a result!.

    Cons

    We have an awesome corporate culture, a great work-life balance that I simply cannot find in other companies. It is hard to find an incentive to leave here. Every other company pales in comparison to Nestle Purina.
    It would be nice if we could bring our dogs to work at every company location.

    Advice to Management

    Keep daring us to do better for the company. We will meet the challenge!

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina PetCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture at Nestle Purina is unmatched. The people are so passionate about pets and the people that love them. It's hard to understand if you are outside the organization. I enjoy the people I work with- the fact that they are here to do what's best for the business, the project, the initiative. It's not a "what's in it for me" culture, but rather "How can we make this better for the business." That's refreshing. I have worked in organizations that were populated by title chasers that were only concerned for themselves. This is not that place.

    Cons

    Promotions and new roles can be slow. We have a tenured workforce, but I believe this has more positives than negatives. Also, compensation can sometimes lag. But with so many positives and other benefits, it's easy to forget. I could go elsewhere and make more money, but I wouldn't be nearly as happy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Remain approachable and down to earth.

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

    Pros

    NPPC has a GREAT culture and work life balance. We enjoy the benefits of a large company with lots of resources and technology while still feeling independant and family oriented. There are lots of growth opportunities as the large retirement eligible population starts leaving- great for Gen-Xers to take leadership positions.

    Cons

    Sometimes being owned by a large international company can be difficult as they try to align us with Nestle globally. However, this can be seen as an opportunity as well- its easiest to embrace it and gain global experience while taking a few global trips to work on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Purina has a wonderful, friendly, team-oriented culture. Great benefits -- including the ability to bring pets to work and an allowance toward a pet adoption. Management is very approachable; keeps employees informed.Turnover is low because people truly enjoy working here and are recognized and rewarded for achievements. On-site Company store and fitness center. Nice office space on a park-like campus (and we even have a dog park!) Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Programs and projects driven by the parent company (Nestle) often take more time than seems necessary and can bog down the ability to do the work important to Purina.

    Pros

    People are fantastic. High-performing, bright individuals at the top if their field advance your learning and keep you on top of your game. Fantastic training opportunities and advancement for those who are flexible. Supportive culture and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    People love it so nobody leaves, which can make upward mobility slow as many people have been around for 20+ years. Politics of that can be tricky since everyone knows everyone and have been "friends" for years.

    Advice to Management

    Advance on merit and knowledge and not necessarily time with company. We have knowledge leaders in certain areas that are not advanced or acknowledged appropriately due to tenure of others and political concerns. Also, so many department heads are given complete autonomy which results in cultural inequities for their group. Work-life programs and work-from-home options should be standardized to all departments.
