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

    Pros

    The benefits are great and there are lots of options to transfer to other teams within Purina. I've gained a variety of business experience along with great pay.

    Cons

    During some projects, the amount overtime required to meet the aggressive deadlines can be exhausting. I've been fortunate to work on great projects, but that meant lots of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible on project deadlines when you see your team is putting in an excessive amount of overtime.

    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

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

    Pros

    Very stable company with strong options for career growth. Lots of opportunities if willing to relocate. Provides the chance to visit and live in places I never expected to see. Solid company values that make me proud to be a part of the organizarion. Great products that are backed up by scientific research and match company values. Great people throughout organization who really care about what they do.

    Cons

    The size of the company can lead to lots of paperwork and red tape. Still struggling to say no to good ideas to allow focus on great ideas leading to large workloads or fragmented efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to be more practical with implementation to reduce extra effort. Embrace new technology to look for ways to reduce work loads (especially paperwork) and strongly encourage decision making to happen at lower levels to increase flexibility.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good solid company to work for no fear of layoffs. Unlike some other area factories we have a Monday thru Friday work schedule with some weekends included. I feel this may be the biggest benefit because I am able to see family a lot. The pay is great along with health insurance. 401k match is also good. Junior employees will be required to work more overtime depending on demand. That's is one of the first things they will tell you before you are hired. Sometimes doing things you don't wanna do is just part of life. Although i never felt the overtime was to excessive. I feel like I'm treated very well here everyone is willing to work with each other. The management is always will to help you succeed. I'm and very very glad I chose this company to work for! There are just to many good points to this company to list! I would encourage anyone looking for a good solid career to start here!

    Cons

    No company and no job is perfect but from my view I can't complain about anything. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to work here and look forward to a few more decades.

    Advice to Management

    If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Pros

    The environment is very supportive of work life flexibility. As a mother, it gives me the opportunity to grow an outstanding career while also fulfilling my vision of the kind of mother want to be to my children.

    Cons

    Being a global company can come with its fair share of change. I suppose you could call this a con but I like to see it as a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your associate base and the challenging us a team to be and do our best. This is one of the reasons I stay here.

    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.
