    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hmmm...well, the benefits aren't bad and I like having the free wellness plans (until I started getting taxed on them).

    Cons

    Where the heck to start? Management is a JOKE and is more concerned about making their numbers than doing good for a pet. I feel like the business model that Banfield has created is AWFUL. The pay sucks and the hours make no sense.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue and hire people that actually have degrees in the field you are putting them in. Maybe start by hiring practice managers that know about not only the management side, but also the medical side...or you could start by hiring management that knows about even one of those things!

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

    Pros

    Open to hiring new grads but not open to what they truly have to offer. They did offer mentorship before leaving you on your own or moving you to another hospital.

    Cons

    Corporate SOPs make them very rigid in rules and procedures. They did not take individual case management into account.

    Advice to Management

    To offer the best care, you should be open to new/updated techniques and medications.
