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

    Pros

    Summer hours, dog friendly office and dog park onsite, fun committee host lots of fun events bbqs and raffles. Emolyee discounts, on site company store. Frequent free let food give away.

    Cons

    Once a great place to work. Leadership is weak, stacked with old boys club members stuck in past. Power struggles with middle management is clear. This company is crumbling, restructuring and downsizing is happen as we speak, employees are leaving in droves, earlier retirements are being taken.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs an overhaul. RETIRE the old boys club and humble the power B%$#& team. Lead by example. Stop blaming the office workers and sales force for poor sales and failing products. Only then will Purina stand a chance at survival.

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good culture....people friendly and pet friendly work place

    Cons

    Culture is changing as company is choosing to hire people from outside who really dont fit in the company's "family oriented" culture. These employees from other companies tend to do things their own way and do not integrate with existing Purina folks.

    Advice to Management

    Retain culture to retain good employees who have been with the company during thick and thin of times

    Pros

    If you want to work for a company that is passionate about what they do and really care about their employees than Purina is the right place. We are a small company within Canada but the advantage to that is you get exposed to many projects and senior management on a more regular basis. Career advancement extends beyond the walls of Purina as employees are able to apply for all opportunities within the Nestle Family of companies.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow talent and maintain the Purina Culture.
