    I have been working at Nestlé Purina full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great place to work, bright and challenging people with a good heart, great career and people management, fantastic international opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of priorities, centrally driven model with strong local input mixed with high "alignment" culture makes us somewhat slow in a very dynamic market

    We whole-heartedly thank you for your 10+ years of service. It sounds like those years have been full of rewarding, yet challenging work. However, numerous priorities and a slow pace bring unnecessary challenges which is why they’re top priorities being addressed by Project Agility. ...

    I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Young, ambitious employees who are encouraged to progress and funding is offered to assist this. Some lovely people, some, not so much - a bit like every workplace really.

    Cons

    Some of the ‘more established’ employees are resistant to change and make life difficult for those who embrace it. Clearly if you have been there a long time, your opinion is valued more than a newbie.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all employees as new ones will come ideas and suggestions for improvement. Yes, long service employee feedback is also valuable but neither is more important than the other.

    Pros

    Great people, felixible working hours, good holiday package, employees benefits

    Cons

    Workload is too much and unsustainable. Internal roles are rarely opened up and you only find out about them once the place had been filled.

      I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      I have been given some great development opportunities at Nestle. My most recent Manager is the best Manager I have ever had in my career. They have a great work life balance and the benefits package is second to none. I have been mostly happy during my time with the company.

      Cons

      Although they have clear salary banding, if you get a promotion, you never get paid into that salary banding whereas if you had joined externally the salary on offer would be much higher. Why? If they deem you as suitable for the role and they don’t have to pay the cost of recruiting and onboarding an external candidate - why are you offered a much lower salary for the same role? Whilst I have had great career progression...

      I worked at Nestlé Purina full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great team days out and incentives. Good staff discounts and ethos towards pets and bring your pets to work is great.

      Cons

      Sometimes seems like a school playground environment. A lot of the people there are not transparent, bad management and no career development or internal development or up-skilling people who have been there for a long time and deserve recognition.

      Advice to Management

      Be more transparent with staff.

      Pros

      You can take your dog to work or stroke other people's dogs if you don't have your own. Everyone is supportive and works towards the same goals.

      Cons

      A lot of meetings and emails but they are working on it because they recognise it gets in the way.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to listen and act upon feedback from your people which you do really well

      Wow – thank you for your 10+ years of service in our England office and for taking the time to leave us feedback! We think pets at work is a pretty cool perk; they reduce stress and increase your physical activity while in the office. However, we hear you on the communication overload. ...
