    Pros

    Ethical company, high level of integrity and research. Quality and safety of products is always top-notch and dedication to the veterinary profession.

    Cons

    Risk-averse culture can sometimes be a challenge, difficult to try new approaches for the business at times. Senior management from parent Colgate do not always understand the Hill's business.

    I worked at Hill's Pet Nutrition full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Time Flexibility, Product Line, Vet Recommended, great team mates. Benefits and base line pay if you negotiate well.

    Cons

    Limited advancement unless you want to move to Topeka, KS or pick up and move away from extended family. Sales Management Org. is very clicky and hopefully you are in the good ol’ boys club. Try promoting or hiring qualified people other than men and/or clueless people whose resume looks great but skills don’t match the need. The market has changed and they are behind the game.

    Advice to Management

    Does it matter? The upper management changes and comes over from Colgate or Colgate Europe with no experience with US pet food. This will never change and isn’t going to get better.
