    I worked at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great benefits and decent pay. Good amount of vacation time. Great company values, and steady employment.
    Your job responsibilities are very clear, and there is always someone you can ask for help. There are opportunities to transfer to other cities and states.

    Cons

    Since job responsibilities are so clear, sometimes you can feel micromanaged. Your happiness at this position fully depends on the doctors you work with. Even though everything is structured so every Banfield is the same, the doctors truly set the tone for each clinic.
    There is not a lot of room to grow. You can take up some extra responsibility in the clinic, but you're pretty much going to be doing the same job.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the well being of the staff. It can be a great place to work at if you don't let the staff be overwhelmed to meet "the numbers."

    I worked at Banfield Pet Hospital (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people who are passionate about what they do. I loved working with my team and would do so again in a heart beat but there were some downsides

    Cons

    They don't take care of their own. Apart from my team there were many situations where people would be passed on for outside talent.

    Everything is slow, from decision making, to planning it takes months for the simplest of items.

    Advice to Management

    Hire/Promote/Interview from within.
    Update your career page.

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Room for development. Gives back to community. Holiday pay/shorter hours on holidays.

    Cons

    Sometimes too focused on numbers and can sometimes be micro managed to hit those numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your people than driving pets in constantly. I like the direction we are starting to go in keeping doctors and associates happy.
