I have been working at Best Friends Animal Society

Pros

nice animals, a pretty location

Cons

cult-like. they fire employees like it is going out of style.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

no advise to give management, it is not run by managers, it is run by supposably retired founders that run it from the sidelines. the founders manage it through fear to keep employees paranoid. managers are afraid too. every one is afraid of losing thier job.

    I have been working at Best Friends Animal Society full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Before I came to Best Friends, I always had trouble finding an organization that I really believed in and that I felt like I belonged. I usually left every 3-4 years looking for something better. Once I came to Best Friends, nearly, 10 years ago, I knew I was home. I love the work we do, the people who do it, and the Founders who created it all. We have heart, whether some choose to see it or not.

    Cons

    The remote location was a challenge in the beginning but I've gotten used to it and not having a Super Target nearby is offset by being around people who love animals as much as I do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We've come a long way since I've been here…keep up the good work achieving our mission while preserving the flame.
