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

Pros

Benefits are great-free optimum wellness plan, discounted Mars candy, onsite bistro, free parking, good bonus

Cons

Location is a bit out of the way, really have to buy into the Mars culture-a lot of associate engagement is expected.

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, lots of locations

    Cons

    Long hours, little recognition, poor leadership from regional level up who have no idea of what happens in veterinary hospitals, huge influx of leaders from retail or restaurant industries who have no business managing hospitals and view medicine no differently than selling lattes. Overly focused on money and constantly drive doctors to sell. Politics galore, group think mentality, not open to innovation or creativity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the glowing 5 star ratings from Portland are planted by the corporate recruiting and media machines to improve Banfield's dismal image. They do not paint a realistic picture of this company.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good. That's about it.

    Cons

    High turnover due to poor work environment. They hire lots of new grads and people with little to no animal care experience to save $$. Reluctant to invest in equipment or personnel. Not at all sensitive to the stresses and problems that are seen with running a hospital (how can they be, when management is not medically trained?). Their expectations are unrealistic (tell me how we are supposed to greet everyone that walks by, answer the phone in 3 rings or less AND have a tech monitoring surgery when you only allow one tech on at a time and the front desk person is only part time??

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doctors should not be worrying about kowtowing to upset clients who feel the need to call and complain to an 800#, reciting a script for possible "mystery shoppers", and fitting their days into your artificial time frames. Let vets do their jobs and not worry about your politics and marketing.
