    Work on own, Good training, Good References, Help Animals, Good Experience overall!

    Long, Hard Hours, Volunteer (No pay), No Benefits! Nasty people sometimes dangerous! Can be attacked from frightened animal!

    Self-Employment so advance is optional unless work w/Animal Control! Experience in law Enforcement, and/or Veterinary Medicine or care helpful!

    Pros

    salaries are good
    benefits are excellent
    401K, though not a pension, has a good contribution & match
     remote employment opportunities for some departments

    Cons

    politics, politics, politics
    directionless CEO
    stagnant board
    HR is a joke
    Literally head scratching how some people are in senior roles
    closed door policy from top down
    questionable practices, ie-Oreo, Feld Ent., NYCLASS, elite horse show sponsorships

    Advice to Management

    listen to your staff, not just lip service. stop all the secrecy. Be open to suggestions, stop with the ridiculous "anonymous" surveys and then punishing for being honest. Be humane, be kind.
