    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Great working environment.

    Cons

    The area I work in isn't the best so we get a lot of unsocialized dogs who are not happy to be there. Lots of muzzles and rabies poles used.

    Pros

    Benefits are awesome, free wellness plans for a number of my pets, freedom for growth with in the company, learning, teaching hospitals, no required experience to start, we are as eager to teach as you are to learn. Mars Mnm discounts, Petsmart store discounts. The culture is about the associate, without the associate being engaged we cannot give the quality of care we believe every pet and client deserves. I'm a Banfield lifer!

    Cons

    There are no cons here, unless you don't like your job, I love my job!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Great culture and the people. Most of us really do care about pets!! I normally have the tools to do my job, learn (and teach) new things every week, and am paid fairly. (Of course I'd like more but my salary is competitive.)

    Cons

    Health insurance is high deducible and kicks in (for family) after $2500 deductible.

    Advice to Management

    Give all IT people a raise!! Haha.

    Pros

    As most places are, if the team is able to work together and support each other it could be a great environment.

    Cons

    I was given impossible limits to stay within and unrealistic expectations in regards to performance.

    Advice to Management

    If it's true that the goal of the company is exceptional customer service and client education, you must allow proper staffing to accomplish these goals. Unhappy staff due to extreme cut backs only hurts the company.
