    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Purina is a great place to work! Employees are provided with a variety of training and development opportunities and the company really cares about your career aspirations and encourages you to stretch yourself, grow and move into other roles if you desire to do so. Teams are collaborative and fun and while it is amazing to be able to bring pets to work, it is the people who really make this a great place to work. Feedback is provided freely, management listens and encourages involvement by all. We are all being challenged to clearly understand our decision rights and do our part to make a difference. So glad to be a part of this team and company!

    Cons

    Sometimes the Nestle world headquarters can be very slow, process heavy and a bit too focused on standardization through NBE.

    Advice to Management

    Really appreciate the strong focus on "Agility" and the many ways Management communicates with employees to maintain alignment!

    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

    I’ve been a part of the Purina Nestle team for two months now and I can say that I truly enjoy and love coming to work everyday! This company cherishes its employees—you can tell by the passion that the employees have for this company. Everyone is approachable and helpful. Wonderful benefits, flexible work schedules, bringing pets to work, health clinic on campus and volunteer opportunities are only a few of the great benefits. This is definitely one of the best places to work!
