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

    Pros

    Nestle Purina challenges everyone to be their best. The culture is competitive and friendly. The Pets at Work benefit is the most notable perk. There are plenty of opportunities to explore new career paths. Good work is recognized and rewarded. A state of the art learning center shows a commitment to investing in people. People believe in what they do here.

    Cons

    While the company touts the importance of work/life balance, there is little done in practice to support it. From the archaic parental leave policy (only 1 week of leave for new fathers) to the absence of sick days, Nestle Purina needs to make some changes to attract those fresh out of college and new to the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to make work fit into their life instead of fitting their life around work. Working from home and flex time need to be accessible to everyone as long as the business accommodates it.

    Pros

    Working at Nestle Purina is truly rewarding! Management is interested in developing their people in the areas they want to pursue. And there is no lack of opportunities.

    Cons

    There is always a lot going on and our plates are always very full. But Management does help us to prioritize.

    Pros

    - Great Benefits: Pets at work, on-site gym, on-site medical, company store, 401K, Bonus, etc..
    - Company cares about employees and their pets
    - Flexible work hours as needed
    - Strong compensation package
    - Large company offers multiple areas to work

    Cons

    - Nestle Purina has such a low turnover rate, that it can take a bit longer for a new position to open up for advancement. However, the company works to move people around and give them exposure to new areas and great opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in new hires to build up our staff.

    Pros

    As a contracted employee I was afraid I would feel like an outsider. That was simply not the case. Everyone is welcoming! At Purina the values are not just preached but they are upheld by employees. There is an opportunity to grow through many different channels! I couldn't be happier with the decision made to work here.

    Cons

    The only con is there are many contract employees, that being said the opportunity for growth is there once you prove yourself.

    Pros

    A very good place to grow and add benefit, something listed in cons and advice to management is lacking resources, but that means more to do and accomplish. There is allot of low hanging fruit to grab and fix.

    Cons

    Bottle necked at the top a little bit, a little lacking on resources so allot is expected out of few

    Advice to Management

    Apply Resources where necessary
