    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Banfield is a great company to work for! The practice is innovative and continuously improving. It is amazing working with dedicated professional who care about our pets, clients and associates. We strive to live our 5 Principles on a daily basis (Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Freedom and Efficiency). I've been employed with Banfield for 7 years and seen the growth of the organization. We are committed to doing what is right, flexibility with schedule for our doctors, addressing student debt, offering great benefits, Inclusion and Diversity, Well-being , Corporate responsibility, Volunteering .. there is so much we are doing and I could not be more proud to work for this company. We strive for excellence and I am very proud of that.

    Cons

    I would say the biggest challenge with banfield is that we are a growth organization. Anytime you are focused on growth there will be growing pains, In addition, you can expect change, if you are not comfortable with change then it would be very challenging to work here.

    Advice to Management

    We have great leadership that focuses on innovation. Leadership matters; thank you for your commitment to excellence. Continue to listen to our associates and make changes when appropriate.

    Develop career road maps for top performers and transparency to timeframes.

    I worked at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful training programs,

    Cons

    Only care about pushing through higher management metrics and not being flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Care about more then just keeping doctors happy so they can make money for the market. You overwork and expect to much from practice managers and not enough from a chief of staff
