St. Louis, Missouri -- Nestle Purina PetCare Company has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2015 in the U.S. Nestle Purina ranked third on this year's list, up from tenth last year, making it the highest-ranked consumer goods company, as well as the highest-ranked company in the Midwest. The Employees' Choice Awards program, now in its seventh year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor's anonymous online company reviews survey.

"Being recognized is a great honor, and ranking third best in the nation is icing on the cake," said W. Patrick McGinnis, CEO, Nestle Purina PetCare Company. "I'm particularly proud of this award because it's based entirely on the feedback of associates who posted reviews on Nestle Purina's Glassdoor page. This is a Company with an outstanding culture and great work environment that includes bringing our pets to work."

With North American headquarters located at Checkerboard Square in St. Louis, Missouri, Nestle Purina has more than 7,600 U.S. associates working in 20 facilities across 13 states.

"I am proud to celebrate the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award winners in earning this tremendous achievement," said Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman. "Millions of employees around the world are turning to Glassdoor each month to share their work experiences. It is this type of authentic feedback that helps others find jobs and companies they love, and allows us to honor employers who stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture."

The Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it's like to work at particular jobs and companies. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.

The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 13, 2013 and November 2, 2014. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 50 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the window of eligibility.
