    Poor management, nepotism is rife, favouritism is almost company policy, if you speak up about problems you are bullied and targeted

    Pros

    Pretty great place, fun atmosphere, not super stressful.

    Cons

    Climbing the ladder can hit some road bumps as there's a lot of people trying to take the higher positions, but I guess that's life. The HR team at least try their best to help find options for people.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open about possibilities and reward workers when advancements aren't available within the company.

    Great company to explore all areas of manufacturing including internationally.
    Great Danforth foundation that leadership continues to support and uphold.
    Exec leadership continue to believe and trust us to produce the best for our furry companions.
    Looking back the past 30 years, many changes have occurred to continue to make our working environment a great place to be.

    Cons

    Being part of a larger organization creates bottlenecks that challenges system and process capabilities.

    Continue to challenge the need to keep the values that make our company stand out from all the others.

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

    Pros

    I've worked for a few different companies and can tell you that there is no place better than Purina. The culture and people you work with truly set this place apart and the company is truly focused on safety/quality and innovation to advance the life of pets. It truly is a great place to work everyday!

    Cons

    The company is going through some changes, but all to ensure a successful future. If you're able to bear down and tough it out I feel the end result will be worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent regarding the business (both good/bad). I feel we only discuss the good and sometimes the bad needs to be shared. Also, leadership needs to set the example of empowering associates to speak up and challenge the norm. I still don't see this happening. Finally, act as leadership and motivate and rally your departments. There are good things happening here and unfortunately morale is decreasing.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time

    Pros

    Bring pets to work
    By and large, people that are talented, dedicated, and collaborative
    Beautiful campus
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Inept senior leadership that is simply outmatched by the problems they face
    Woefully out of step with trends and growth drivers
    Brutally slow moving despite efforts to increase organizational agility
    People are leaving in droves
    Becoming more and more Nestle-oriented everyday (this is a very bad thing...process for everything...cost cutting focus)
    Incredibly risk averse
    Comparatively poor business performance for past several years with no change in trajectory in sight
    Morale has been suffering for some time, with no end in sight
    Arrogant mindset...slow to see the writing on the wall...even slower to react
    Limited accountability for failure (leaders fail and then get promoted or get a great new assignment -- ??????)

    Advice to Management

    Respectfully, senior leadership lacks the strategic vision and dynamic abilities required to lead in the current situation. Our company's fortunes won't change until we once again have authentically talented leadership at the top.
