    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!

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

    Pros

    The site is a great place to work. There is an excellent work life balance. My supervisor cares about my future. I enjoy the company trying to grow my skills. They invest in not only current tasks but also in skills I can use in my future.

    Cons

    Like all teams we have some team members that are negative. The company is trying to address the "bad eggs" but it can't happen fast enough. These people make the days unproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for listening - keep working with us

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is great for the job. Company store is a plus with cheap items made by Nestle brands.

    Cons

    Con Ops 12 hour shift schedule is bad. Productivity would be much better on a traditional shift or 10 hour shifts at least. Warehouse atmosphere is horrible, no music, constant complainers and miserable "senior" co-workers. Production plant gets most of the attention and mixing center gets thrown on the back burner. We were told months ago by mixing center management they were going to look into the schedule but have not heard a thing since. Work is not handed out in a fair manner.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of this "con ops" scheduling. Actually listen to your employees that have been in other warehouse/distribution centers for new ideas. The process in this warehouse is from the Jurassic period.

    Pros

    Challenging work, friendly environment, tons of professional development resources, some of the nicest, most sincere people around! The founding principles of Purina are still alive and well today, and I really appreciate that this company has such a strong culture & legacy.

    Great benefits and perks for employees, a very family-friendly company with a progressive parental leave policy. I've been here just over 5 years and it's been a very rewarding career thusfar.

    Cons

    At times, being part of a huge global company can be challenging and a little frustrating, due to slow-downs, standardization, etc.
