I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Banfield is a hidden gem in the Portland area - great place to grow and advance your career while getting acclimated to a "corporate" office environment. Co-workers are all very nice.

Cons

The company has grown quickly, so many processes and "the basics" are still being figured out, including a good work-life balance for many teams and departments. The company is still trying to best figure out how to treat their three subset of associates (hospital, field leadership and those at the corporate office) in a similar manner.

    Pros

    Multiple locations so you can transfer to another area if needed, decent time off and pay

    Cons

    Because they are trying to fit in with Mars, their parent company, the senior leadership speaks constantly about how much they care about people and pets. However, that's all it is - talk. Do not be fooled, profit is king at Banfield. Politics are huge and their are sooo many people in lead roles who have no business being there merely because of connections. If you dare to question anything, you will immediately be labeled as a dissenter and they will work to exit you. Oh, and you'd better hit all your financial targets, too. They rarely promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the non-veterinary people you keep importing are destroying your reputation with your own hospital associates. They know nothing about our industry, most don't care about or even have pets, and what they're truly good at is squeezing every last bit of money out of the hospitals. Your associates no longer believe that nonsense the senior leaders keep spewing about the Banfield culture. The only strong culture I've seen is at the hospital level, where they actually care about pets and their colleagues.
