    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!

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

    Pros

    Coworkers that are like family, work-life balance, amenities, and opportunities for development are just some of the reasons I love to come to work each day!

    Cons

    The cafeteria is pretty expensive, though more food trucks have been coming lately - which has been a fun way to meet new people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting agility through leading by example, and keep Purina top of class as we integrate more with Nestle.

    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.
