    Pros

    Love of animals and animal well being Diverse People

    Cons

    Insane expectations at times Long hours at times for corporate visits-obnoxious Bullying and sometimes intimidating general managers Anti- pursuing education if you're an ASM or higher Some general managers expect you to break your back when they are hardly in their own stores sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Do not allow your General Managers to be bullies or over pressure or over work their team. Be fairer in expectations
