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

Pros

There's a lot of security in working for Banfield. You're guaranteed hours, benefits, and health care for you pets. There are many opportunities to move up in the company and there is almost a Banfield everywhere.

Cons

Banfield doesn't seem concerned with burning their staff out. They push for so many pets to be seen but aren't provided provisions for adequate staffing. I hate how much they make us push for unnecessary products and services with clients and that sometimes strains the client relationship. The hours worked are ridiculous. Working an 11-12 hour shift has become normal to me.

Advice to Management

Please put more care into Staff! Having a team full of crabby, burned out, over-worked people is ultimately not best for clients and patients and they aren't given the best experience they could have. We need more staff to help take care of the 10 billion responsibilities that are required of us.

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

    Pros

    The absolute best benefits package in the medical industry. Now picking up the entire cost of short term and LTD for all full timers. PART timers are now being paid PTO! No other employers do this. It does show how much they care about associates! Working in an environment of respect is also very apparent every single day. In my market, almost every PM promotion in internal. If you want to grow.... You will not see this in private practice!

    Cons

    None... This is a very tough job but rewards can be great if you work very hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on people and pets... That's what will make us great.
