I worked at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Since they focus on the business side of things, there are a lot of incentives to have a higher productivity as an employee. The more revenue you generate, the more they reward you even though the goals are pretty high. Lots of opportunities to move up in the company. If you work as a pet nurse then go to vet school, they offer positions as a student rep for banfield. They also love to hire recent vet school grads to start out their career after previously being a receptionist or pet nurse for them.

Cons

You end up "selling" clients a lot of services. If someone comes in for their dogs itchy skin, you would solve that issue with the doctors orders but then also recommend your medicated shampoo, a nail trim, and other vaccines and flea meds that the pet might be due for soon. The goal is drive up productivity and revenue with each client, then both the doctor and the pet nurse for the clients visit gets credit for all of the services purchased... Which can also be a pro, but this is exhausting everyday and takes a lot of time and seems insincere/irrelevant a lot of the time.

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The absolute best benefits package in the medical industry. Now picking up the entire cost of short term and LTD for all full timers. PART timers are now being paid PTO! No other employers do this. It does show how much they care about associates! Working in an environment of respect is also very apparent every single day. In my market, almost every PM promotion in internal. If you want to grow.... You will not see this in private practice!

    Cons

    None... This is a very tough job but rewards can be great if you work very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focused on people and pets... That's what will make us great.
