    "Overall experience depends upon the current Field Director; can be great and positive or frustrating and disappointing"

    Current Employee - Lead Veterinary Tech Assistant
    Current Employee - Lead Veterinary Tech Assistant
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Freedom to make decisions at the hospital level regarding hiring/firing; freedom to be in control of day to day operations w/o constant upper management's input.

    Cons

    Entire positive atmosphere can be shattered when a new Field Director takes over; a lot of turnover in upper management. Constant pressure to sell OWPs, increase client/pet count, reach goals but no rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the goal of veterinary medicine - we are not a candy company (MARS corp owns Banfield) so stop trying to run Banfield like a retail store. Goal should be medicine focused not high output, low costs, big payouts to upper management but no reward or motivation for hospital personnel to work hard. Unfortunately, after working at the mid management level for over two years, I have to agree that ALL of the negative press about Banfield IS true. It's a corporately owned, corporately run, money over medicine based company.
