    I worked at Dogwood Acres Pet Retreat full-time

    Pros

    Working with animals enjoyable, free lunch at staff meetings, occasional fun special events

    Cons

    Extremely stressful work environment worsened by toxic attitudes from coworkers. Management consistently ignored our department's needs, and we were often understaffed for ridiculously long periods due to their negligence. Management also played favorites and gave preference to certain employees, regardless of their actual performance. Communication problems between departments occurred often, and many emergency situations took place after managers had gone home for the day. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid employee favoritism, fill staff vacancies more quickly, reward or acknowledge employees taking on extra work, promote more positive environment among employees, encourage and aid in communication between all departments, have a manager present at the facility whenever it is open to customers.
