    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.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time

    Pros

    I feel confident in the leadership of the entire company, along with my department, ORM. After working at Nestle Purina for 3+ years, I am proud to know how serious my company takes its products, and the ingredients in them. Nestle Purina takes great consideration, and a proactive approach regarding the company's future.

    Cons

    I can only share opportunities within a single department, so other departments may not be the same. For my department, I feel like there are opportunities to help younger associates personally grow & develop. I may feel this way since I'm a younger associate and just needed to gain some experience, but it definitely took some time to understand how to navigate and understand the internal business landscape and environment. My advice would be to pay close attention to this, look for deeper meanings with company and/or department announcements, and ask as many questions to your boss as possible.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They pay an ok wage, even though I have heard from people that would know, that Purina has colluded with Mars for some time to keep salaries low for people in certain fields. Work/life balance is very good here. Having said that, it is a job and for most, can be nothing more.

    Cons

    They openly, and proudly, discriminate against men. Nepotism and cronyism have, and continue to, flourish in this organization. This drives the incompetence of leadership at many levels.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing people based on skills and contributions, not on popularity, reverse discrimination, or familial relationship.

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Passionate/competent co-workers
    You'd be hard pressed to find a healthier workplace. Any where will have difficulties and frustrations, but people are attempting every day to make it better.

    Cons

    If you're reading this it means you're researching the company (most likely). Nestle Purina is positioned well with a healthy culture, not perfect but healthy. If you want to be challenged then this will be a fit, if you want something that's easy then it may not be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
    Be sensitive to Project Agility flowing uphill as well. (Feedback is shared and stops, communicate back down)
    Priorities flow one way (Corporate to Sites)
