    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with pets, learning vet medicine, loads of experience for the future, Meeting new people, Can be fun when doctors are not stressed out, Being in a lab, Seeing a pet recover. Saving lives.

    Cons

    Lead doctors not taking responsibility for their screw ups, constantly looked down on, Low pay for nurses even though they do so much more than a CSC that gets payed dollars more. Very stressful. Puzzed as to how the pay scale works for staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just wake up on the right side of bed in the morning then pray before you walk into work. Maybee that will allow managment to treat Nurses and staff with more respect and appreciation. Don't be afraid to give a little away to employees..... you'll get it right back x10.

    Current Employee - Practice Manager  in  Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Practice Manager in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Love of pets and caring for them working with a really good team and developing skills for technicians and nurses. Growth of paid time off days and floater holidays is good.

    Cons

    Very stressful, lots of requirements and rules that sometimes stress out the staff. Customers can be very demanding and unforgiving and their reactions and complaints can be unnerving even if you didn't do what they say you did. There is no work life balance. Medical staff work 10 hours shifts and sometimes those days can run long and one still has to be back at 8am! The health insurance has a very high deductible.
