    I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Met cool people

    Cons

    - Sales department full of gossip at the Mississauga HQ - Politics are normal for most companies but this was just insane - Summer hours were not worth it. You better be in your seat at 8am sharp or you're getting reported, but of course this only applied to my department - Bottom line, bosses matter and mine were terrible - Did NOT learn anything new - Co-workers publicly berated from upper management in front...

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time

    Pros

    Letting overtime abused; so that all enjoy milking the company!

    Cons

    Over paid employees . I could run the DC with 40% less labour with minimum OT. Now, it's party time! Closing is foreseeable within 2 years. Managers just unable to run efficiently to compete within the industry. The cost is unimaginably high. Unnecessary Overtime is just ludicrous!!

    Advice to Management

    Start a new beginning by firing from top to bottom

    Current Employee - MDO - Category Development in Mississauga, ON

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time

    Pros

    Love the team that I work in, good flexibility, foster learning

    Cons

    - Linear organization, doesn't have a lot of room for moving up. - I work with the Digital team on a lot of projects and they are very unprofessional. The upper management is not even educated on current industry trends, and their attitude makes them unapproachable. I have seen a lot of turnover in that department for a reason.

    Pros

    Nice enough physical space/working environment with kitchens; opportunity to bring your dog to work, work remotely if required, people who genuinely care about pets. Good salary, bonus structure and benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of clear direction, some people are not held accountable for going rogue and the issues they cause and frequently leave the mess for others to clean up. People promoted to management simply because of number of years served in their role results in disaster as they are given no training regarding their new role and have no idea how to manage a business nationally, how to manage people, how to manage their time in...

    Advice to Management

    Hire an outside agency to come in and tell you what you have probably already been told by your own employees. Perhaps hearing it from a third party will legitimize the findings. Utilize a third party to update the business as how it is run is very old school.
