Former Employee - Veterinarian in Durham, NC
No opinion of CEO

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.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    good profit and loss, team management, business model, customer management experience
    only work here if you absolutely need a job, I needed a job

    Cons

    for practice managers, this is a retail job, not a "management" position
    much more work than the hourly rate pays
    very low hourly rate for a management position
    work volume is extreme and THIS JOB IS 24-7

    Advice to Management

    Banfield is a model that will not change. My advice was never accepted. They don't want your advice.
