Campus is nice and animal-friendly, employees are generally very passionate about what they do, no dog and cat sales is a big plus in the stores (adoptions only). Very good training in some areas, depending on level of position and what department your'e in.
Poor long-term vision for the company, not protecting well enough against competition as more retailers get into the pet category. Not a great company-wide culture, really depends on the senior team leader in charge of your department. Get a good one and then have a good work environment. If not, well...
Advice to Management
Keep promises made to the employees, especially those made publicly. Spend more time with key people who know the company and industry to get their insights about what is changing, instead of hiring consultants.
