    I have been working at Zoetis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Office culture is amazing and I always feel encouraged to develop myself. Very supportive with a great sense of teamwork! I feel very blessed!

    Cons

    The spin-off did bring with it a great deal of challenges, so I suppose the one negative thing I can say is that sometimes things seem very uncertain, which I suppose is to be expected.

    I have been working at Zoetis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of great talent here, and kind people. Benefits & time off are decent, and there's a receptive atmosphere in discussing performance and ambition. Portfolio of products is very strong & only getting better.

    Cons

    Salary not competitive. Upward mobility within the company is touted but very limited & unlikely in reality. The company has showcased a preference in hiring contractors versus full-time colleagues. The facilities are poor and any there's a very distinct, unpleasant atmosphere of cost-cutting that happens at every turn.

    I have been working at Zoetis as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers are hard working and most are quite intelligent

    Cons

    Most of the employees are from Pfizer, so they brought their disorganized, out of whack way of thinking with them. Lots of contractors doing just as much work as the "colleagues" but we are not treated the same of course. Many groups able to hire, and do but the groups that need it the most (Quality, Operations) are denied with the same song " budget, headcount", so the workload increases, employees are unhappy, and they let go good contractors. Good work life balance with my group, but no communication at all from managers regarding how you are doing.
    Spoiled "lifers" who have no idea how good they have it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire contractors, staff your business correctly or I predict huge issues with production due to being short staffed and over worked.

    I have been working at Zoetis full-time

    Pros

    Newly formed company, with opportunity to build processes from the ground up. Very broad possibilities in animal health. Very competitive teams, highly educated. Ideal for seasoned employees with a competitive spirit.

    Cons

    Challenging spin-off, and very political atmosphere. Need to build relationships long before building experience and knowledge base, otherwise you will be left behind. Not much mentoring/guidance therefore not ideal for lower level employees to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Phase out political culture.

    I have been working at Zoetis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The atmosphere of a leader in the market, you have the freedom to succeed and fail, refreshing creative liberties, great diversity of colleagues, very pleasant people with which to work, very collaborative environment

    Cons

    Crippling politics, poor decision making from leadership, unreasonable time cycles, leadership is cheap with ideas and mentally lazy, too much focus on managing upward, directors spend more effort avoiding responsibility than accepting it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing your mid-level talent than yourselves.

    I have been working at Zoetis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, professional site manager, good hours, decent work/life balance. Easy work, potential for movement with the company is there, but not for everybody. Great medical, dental, vision, 401K and stock matching plan for full time employees

    Cons

    Blue collar work if you aren't in the front offices, some physical labor, occasional exposure to antibiotics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better and more thorough initial training would benefit new hires well

    I have been working at Zoetis full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pros are for my site only. Hard workers, close proximity to my home, able to change when we work as necessary, friendly associate. Has allowed us to update equipment and computer systems.

    Cons

    Slave drivers. Don't care about employees. Expect to work under staffed and with limited supplies. Set impossible goals, provides no support, and then blames us for not completing them. HR is non existent. If your site doesn't make millions of dollars for the company, you don't matter to them. Implement systems just to implement them, takes months longer to complete things that used to take weeks. Does not promote company bonding. You are just a number to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My direct managers are great, the corporate managements needs to get people that care just as much about their employees as they do the bottom line.

    Pros

    Market leader, great leadership, cares about its people, good values.

    Cons

    Many changes, work load increases every year, can be overwhelming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is strong leadership and good opportunties. Continue to look for development opportunties in the field vs. head quarters. I am proud to work for this company. They do many things right.
