    Pros

    Opportunities available for those who actively seek them. Colleagues support each other. Work environment (physical space, technology, facilities) is better than average but not outstanding. Compensation and benefits are very competitive for geographic area.

    Cons

    Professional development is "do it yourself" for the most part--if you don't figure out the system, then it won't happen for you. Advancement can be slow and promotion process is torturous.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations are very high for performance (which is all good), but they increase every year which reduces morale. Leadership must embrace more transparency in order to achieve better employee engagement.

    Pros

    The benefits are to die for. They match up to 6% of what you put in your 401k plan, from day 1 you have 3 weeks paid vacation. Plus 5 caregiver days, PLUS sick time. The starting pay is about 13.50, but depends on previous experience. A lot of the people are really great, but without a doubt expect you to pull your own weight. If you're looking for a job to go to and work hard and go home, this is it. There is so much room for advancement for anyone that if willing to work for it. I enjoy it for the most part. There is a lot of lab work in certain departments, where you have to gown into labs and lots of cleaning/disinfecting. If you don't like blood avoid TCO and CEO departments as they are big on chicken vaccines. They use eggs on a DAILY basis. After you've been here 10 years you get another week vacation added. But honestly 3 weeks isn't something you could get from anywhere else!

    Cons

    Negativity. There is very little consistency from one person to the next that it makes it hard for anything to be completed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! They know what needs to happen for anything to get done. They/we are the backbone, listen to what we are saying!

    Pros

    Fair pay, great coworkers, good methodologies in place. Zoetis really cares about the quality of their products and the company back them up with sound science.

    Cons

    Executive team too focus on shareholder's needs / short term, instead of long term plans. Everything is getting smaller, including benefits, resources and funding for long term projects.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the good people and treat them with respect during this transition period.

    Pros

    Great people, highly motivated. Great, innovative products that help keep pets healthy and the food supply safe. Good place to feel like you make a difference.

    Cons

    Going through a period of extreme change driven by wall street investors. Also trying to re-invent themselves. This could be very successful, but will be a difficult place to work until it all gets sorted out.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know why this section is advice to management when these reviews are for people looking for jobs with this company.

    Once a proud environment but the morale is overbearing - money is the issue poor planning on the leadership on trying to fix what was working. starting over to re-establish talent
