    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time

    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)

    Pros

    benefits, time off, work life balance, community involvement, gym on site, formula coupons

    Cons

    The timeliness of decisions could improve. It seems like it takes forever and everyone has to approve before it can go forward.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I understand you are trying to change the culture and that takes time. Change is inevitable during this process and understanding and accepting that makes the process much easier. Level setting expectations that it is ok to fail forward and that is how we learn and grow rather than look to punish.

    I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time

    Pros

    The people are what makes the company special. Many of the employees in more specialized/skilled roles are top performers. There are a lot of resources and also amenities such as gym and cafeteria onsite. Great place to learn and apply business fundamentals.

    Cons

    Morale has drastically decreased due to the results of unfavorable decisions being made for short-term profit targets. Company is very slow to react in a highly competitive and volatile climate. Strategy is a loose term as it is constantly being abandoned. Friendships often determine success, and hard work and business impact is overlooked. Promotions/raises and Roles and responsibilities are not fair and equitable. There are an extensive amount of people leaders that are not skilled at managing others and do not understand or care about the importance of coaching and developing others.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! People are miserable and good people continue to leave the company. Purina will never be a top place to work again if you don’t put people first. Talent and culture is everything. Something needs to be addressed with complacent management, as well as the leaders that aren’t being held accountable for poor decisions. Until the good old boys club is gone, we will continue to see business declines, unhappy employees, nepotism, rewarding bad behavior and employees leaving the company.
