    I would be very happy to work for the zoo for the rest of my life.

    Cons

    At times not realistic to the real issues of the zoo. Many employees are overworked and under appreciated. Thank you goes a long ways. Other employees hardly work, make mistakes and it will go unnoticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Calgary Zoo is a big place to work, a good place to work but middle management is left with to much freedom. When PEP's are done HR should be questioning employees to get opinions on how their bosses are supporting or not supporting them.
