      Pros

      What an amazing company to work for! Blue is an innovative and fun company that is growing a TON. Your contributions to the team are seen throughout the organization, and you’re able to see your work come to life. Great senior leadership who really operate by something we loving call the N/A policy. The culture at Blue is fast paced and very much operates by everyone playing an integral part in it’s success. GO BLUE GO!

      Cons

      No cons, it can be demanding, but it’s very rewarding.

      Pros

      Blue Buffalo has been consistent with their values of taking care of pets with quality food and treats. It feels good to work for a company with great standards and opportunities to grow.

      Cons

      Hard to identify new positions within Blue sometimes. Really great company to work with, though.

      Pretty Terrible Actually

      Pros

      - Pet Food Stipend - Lots of free swag - Copious amounts of alcohol at company events (if that is a plus for you)

      Cons

      So many to share: - Terrible at helping on-board new employees. They just expect you to figure it out and all at a non-traditional CPG setup, which leads to... - Clique-ish culture. Easy to get left out of conversations and then punished for not knowing information people aren't sharing with you. Don't expect anyone to make sure you're informed. That's most of your job. - Poor Leadership, especially from the long-time "Buffs" who spent many years as "yes" people doing what the Bishops told them to do. These Buffs don't know how to actually think for themselves or come up with good ideas and the current struggles show it. - Bloated staffing - Definitely tons of people who do actually nothing. Fail to attend important meetings, don't respond to emails, etc. Tons of people there who add little value but somehow have stuck around
