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

    Pros

    I absolutely love coming to work for NPPC everyday. The culture is second to none and over the years my work team has become like family. My immediate management and department leadership are both supportive and engaged in development and employee satisfaction, and it has led to opportunities for project work and growth. At this point, I can't imagine working somewhere else.

    There are lots of perks for associates - fitness center, daycare, flex time and remote work capabilities, tons of events and volunteer opportunities, medical department, company store and discount programs, corporate library, mentor programs, a huge catalog of personal and professional development resources, and of course - pets at work! We can take advantage of tuition reimbursement, pet adoption reimbursement, discounts on Nestle and Purina products, a new 6 month maternity leave, adoption reimbursement, and so much more.

    The company puts a lot of emphasis on innovation and continuous improvement, not only in our products and sales, but also in programming and employee satisfaction. The company is dedicated to being a good corporate citizen, and does a ton of work giving back to the community. This is a company you can be really proud to work for, that stands behind its products and values, and empowers its employees to do great work. It's not at all surprising that we have so many people who have dedicated 20, 30, 40, and more years of their lives here.

    Cons

    This is a big company that can be a little flat, and it has its share of corporate bureaucracy. Upward mobility can take time and patience. It's really easy to get siloed in our individual work areas/projects, so the ability to work cross-functionally is a huge area of opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for more transparency, more diversity (especially in management teams), and more innovation. Be open to non-traditional work structures!

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

    Pros

    This company really invests in and listens to its employees. Employees establish long term career and performance goals and Purina provides the resources and time to learn and train. There's an extremely welcoming and open community, and lots of benefits with the objective of retaining employees in a way that's disappeared in this day and age.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of at the moment.

    Pros

    Nestle Purina is truly a great place to work. If you work hard, the opportunities are endless. The work/life balance simply cannot be beat. I'm able to go home each day and focus on my family which is something I never experienced before working at Purina.

    Cons

    Times are changing but I'm confident that our senior leaders will make the right decisions to keep us moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on Project Agility to keep us ahead!

    Pros

    Amazing to see how Purina is changing and pursuing the best strucuture for consumers, employees and pets

    Cons

    Don't feel the need to complain, all companies have cons. The difference is how it is managed. At Purina, with a lot of respect and transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Project Agility is making the difference, keep moving forward. I can see the Sr. Leadership evolving a lot.

    Pros

    Polite, Respectful Culture. Talented people. Not a bad job.

    Cons

    Experience outside Purina is not highly valued. Work life balance isn't what was promised.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. The message and the reality are too often different. The pressure or urgency of a situation is not a good excuse to compromise values. They are only values if you stick with them when its tough.
