    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
