    I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, time off.

    Cons

    Managers don't have a clue what goes on out on the floor. Training is a joke. Attent

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what the operators are doing. Everything that came out of trainers mouth was this is not what your supposed to do but it's the easiest way. Some people want to earn a paycheck not just receive one. Serious problems under your nose.

      I’ve been a part of the Purina Nestle team for two months now and I can say that I truly enjoy and love coming to work everyday! This company cherishes its employees—you can tell by the passion that the employees have for this company. Everyone is approachable and helpful. Wonderful benefits, flexible work schedules, bringing pets to work, health clinic on campus and volunteer opportunities are only a few of the great...

      Pros

      Relationships, challenges, trying to be agile. Exciting new product offerings.

      Cons

      Directors hoard information. VEREO has made this worse as they work to keep themselves relevant at the expense of their own subordinates. If the idea was to truly increase span of control at the lower level, there has been no attempt to measure and improve this goal. There is no way to get a smoke signal out to leadership on anything, leaving us to air our dirty laundry here. My senior leader spoke to our group one time...

      Advice to Management

      We recently launched a great program to develop Women in Leadership, but there has never been an attempt made to develop any leaders before this. As a male, I would love to have any focus on this for myself - but sadly, there is no way to raise this issue now without coming across as misogynistic. Senior leadership (in the name of Agility) holds a 90 minute meeting with a key group once a month. By the time we meet again,...
