Pros

Banfield is owned by the MARS organization, and is driven by the 5 Principles of MARS. For that reason, we have a strong culture that all levels of associates adhere to. If you are interested in the veterinary profession, this is a great place to start because of the on-the-job training available in many states. The team is passionate about pet care and wants to offer the best care to our patients. It is very rewarding knowing you helped save a pets life or kept a pet and family together.

Cons

Can be driven by numbers, like any corporate organization. Some locations are not as driven by the 5 Principles as others. Long work hours which can interfere with work/life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more field leaders to compensate for growing number of hospital locations.

    Pros

    Great organization where you get to help pets, clients and get work with a great group of people. Additionally you get to learn so much medically and about the industry,

    Cons

    Some departments work in silos and management doesn't always hire qualified candidates for the right positions. This puts a lot of extra work on the peers of those that do not have the necessary skills to pick up the slack and cover the work they are unable to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure employees have right skill sets to perform the duties in their role. Distribute work evenly and don't overload the hard workers because others can not pull their weight.

    Pros

    Client communication is the main experience you will get from working here. Manager is very helpful, personal growth is great.

    Cons

    Would be better if more staff number is allowed per shift, some times the phone calls never stop throughout the entire day.
