    I have been working at Nestlé Purina U.S. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Purina Cares about Pets and People! I've always been proud of my role in the Purina family, but this pride has amplified as I've witnessed the care and compassion for our employees, our communities, and the pets we provide products for, in light of the current worldwide pandemic. For our employees, we are guaranteeing pay, and for those on our front lines we are also providing bonuses, meals, and enhanced safety and cleaning measures to protect them. We are also giving generously to the communities in which we live and work to ensure that small businesses are supported, pets are fed, and our community neighbors continue to thrive. Purina truly walks the talk, and I couldn't be prouder!

    Cons

    Being part of a global company can sometimes add complexity and red tape to an environment that would otherwise be quite agile.

    Thank you for sharing your pride. We’re facing uncertain times but we’re facing them together. Ensuring our employees well-being begins with their safety at work but if there more we can do, assisting them financially or even just removing the burden of packing a lunch – we’re honored to do it for those ensuring our quality products during such a difficult time. We appreciate your feedback and advice. Thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback as a Category Manager—I appreciate your perspective. Pets at work is one of my favorite perks, too, but you mention some significant concerns I’d like to address. As an organization, we train our leaders to enable their teams rather than some of the management styles you mention. I’m surprised and disappointed you still saw this in action. It sounds like we might have some room for improvement in the recognition department, too. Finally, know that involuntary turnover is never the outcome either party wants and only occurs in dire circumstances. I wish you well & value your feedback. Thank you! —Scott, Director HR Strategy-Commercial

    Thank you for providing us with feedback on your role in Finance. We’re happy to hear you enjoy your role day to day and recognize the growth opportunities available to you. With our rich history, it’s easy to fall on old habits or ways of thinking. Challenge this behavior and contribute new thoughts when they arise—this behavior will not only renew our way of thinking but also contribute to innovation, one of our 5 “Talls”. Thanks, again!

    I have been working at Nestlé Purina U.S. for 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.
