    I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers and feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day. Work atmosphere was clean and safe, support staff were knowledgable.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits were diminishing, unfair labor practices were on the rise.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the eyes and ears coming from the floor, get all the facts and information, when basing your decisions.

    Pros

    They invest a lot in their employees, benefits are amazing, excellent entry-level opportunities. I think it says a lot about a company when you meet people who have been with the company for 10, 15, 30+ years and plan to stay here.

    Cons

    Slow to change, and since it's such a large company it can be hard to find opportunities to move around since you don't know what's available.

    Pros

    Work life balance is great, love working with dogs and cats in office and you can't challenge the love and passion for the pets. Going through large company growing pains, but commitment for growth is solid.

    Cons

    Challenging industry for a big slow company. Takes too long to make decisions. Needs to innovate faster. Doesn't listen to field people closest to opportunities fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those in the field closest to the point of purchase faster!

    Pros

    Lots of nice people, company water give aways during holidays, simple work once you get the hang of it. Some days are worse than others

    Cons

    Management only cares about if their goals are met or not, they sometimes push people to work unsafely because of this

    Pros

    Good company to work for. They take care of their employees and try to foster a positive work environment. Pay is excellent for the location.

    Cons

    Managers and engineers are cycled through the plant through a revolving door. There is little time for them to grow and learn from their decisions. It creates an uneasy focus for the hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create a minimum timeframe for managers and engineers before they are allowed to move on in the company.

    I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the people that I interact with both within TAG and other departments. My job allows for some flexibility which is nice.

    Cons

    The longer I work here, I am starting to figure out that both job offers and promotions are based on what leadership determines your future potential to be vs. actual merits that you have achieved on the job. Recent hires and reorganization have been catastrophic to the morale of my department. Half of us are looking for new jobs. Hopefully things change for the employees that remain or the new ones that come on board...

    Advice to Management

    You cannot maintain the inconsistencies of promotion. It is demoralizing for an employee with significant education and outstanding performance evaluations to continually get passed up for promotions. It is even further demoralizing to have new hires with no experience and less education hired at several levels above current employees based on the fact that they know their hiring manager and used to be good buddies. It is then a further conflict of interest for said hire to report to their friend.
