    I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Quite independent than Nestle. Same WOW, but colleagues are pretty collaborative. A lot of development opportunities. Work/life balance is great.

    Cons

    As part of the Nestle group, sometimes even a small change takes ages. Management is obsessed with the KPIs

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with the people, numbers are important, but people are doing everything to make them

    Thank you for your feedback—being a part of Nestlé brings many benefits like growth and development opportunities but like any large company, it can slow processes down. Agility is now a pillar of our culture because we need buy-in at every level of the organization to own decisions ...

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working with a great extended multi-disciplinary team.

    Cons

    The cliques and drama within the department that even the managers are a part of. The employees that refuse to play games and stick to focusing on work and the business at hand are penalized. The absentee director that doesn't even notice what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and treat everyone fairly (albeit not necessarily equally). Quit hiring people in to the department at levels above those of current employees when they have significantly less skill and experience than the people you have. Coach managers on being effective. Good people are going to walk. They are already getting their resumes ready.
