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

    Pros

    Purina is a great place to work! Employees are provided with a variety of training and development opportunities and the company really cares about your career aspirations and encourages you to stretch yourself, grow and move into other roles if you desire to do so. Teams are collaborative and fun and while it is amazing to be able to bring pets to work, it is the people who really make this a great place to work. Feedback is provided freely, management listens and encourages involvement by all. We are all being challenged to clearly understand our decision rights and do our part to make a difference. So glad to be a part of this team and company!

    Cons

    Sometimes the Nestle world headquarters can be very slow, process heavy and a bit too focused on standardization through NBE.

    Advice to Management

    Really appreciate the strong focus on "Agility" and the many ways Management communicates with employees to maintain alignment!

    Pros

    Pays well, company store is great.

    Cons

    Con ops schedule (both NCO and DCO) are bad and miserable. No room to advance to regular 8 hour shift in the warehouse. Con ops would be better, more productive and tolerable on 10 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Change the schedule for con ops and you will be able to keep more people in the warehouse and they would also be happier.

    Pros

    Nestle Purina is a good place of employment. The benefits are great and there is good interaction between departments. There is a lot of commitment to creating the best pet food with the highest quality by the employees.

    Cons

    The technical groups do not have the same access to promotions and rewards as the marketing and business side. Work life balance is difficult to achieve with a lot of business travel.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing trends and make commitments to moving ahead with original products

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing. There is a contagious desire to succeed and commitment to being the best coupled with respect for work-life balance. High performers are rewarded with career advancement and increasingly challenging projects. For those who show potential, there is no limit on career opportunities which makes it difficult to ever consider leaving.

    Cons

    At times things can be slow moving, but leaders have been working hard to empower people at all levels to change this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue rewarding people who have the biggest impact to the business and don't be afraid to let people go who are not doing the right things.
