I have been working at Best Friends Animal Society full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

chance to work with animal rescue, beautiful place to live

Cons

very stressful, management by fear, incompetence, NO job security

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to the experts that you have hired - these people have given up a LOT to come work for you and want to make this company successful - they know what they are talking about but if they disagree with you, you FIRE them - this is NOT right! Stop trying to intimidate your employees by firing thier friends as an 'example'. Firing 20 or 30 people every year is not the way to grow a respected company. Best Friends has a TERRIBLE reputation in Kanab. Don't you care?

    Pros

    Working with/for animals THAT'S IT

    Cons

    Unfortunately lots of the rumors are true and then some. Best Friends is almost cult like. Once you speak up or say anything management or founders disagree with whether it be for the benefit of the animals or otherwise you are somewhat "black listed". Working in this environment is a daily soap opera far from the friendly facade they try to portray. Favorites are definitely played I'll refer to them as the groupies who regardless of what best friends does these few employees will go along with everything & anything so they basically get "rewarded" so to speak for immoral behavior which would not be tolerated at any other large organization. These employees know they can get away with doing things you wouldn't even imagine thus resulting in unhappy employees who see the injustice of the situation. I know many animal lovers who would love to work for best friends but trust me when I tell you it's not worth leaving your current job. Do some research and you'll discover the horrors that is best friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work for the animals not your egos.
