Pros

Schedule flexibility. I went to college full time and worked full time, and they were awesome with my schedule. They offer a lot of ce, but it's through their online learning center. They also gave me great management training when I was promoted too.

Cons

Low salaries, long days, corporate mindset and limitations. Their business model seems to promote a quantity over quality type of medicine as operating procedures are determined and overseen by people who have no prior veterinary or hospital experience.

Advice to Management

Medicine is not cookie cutter, that's why it's called a practice. Higher salaries for paraprofessionals rather than CEO types will equal higher quality medicine and technical staff. Salaries should at least be competitive with comparable positions in the same area.

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

    Pros

    great benefits, generous PTO, company rules are very lenient and accommodating, managers are all very friendly, co workers are wonderful, free care for up to three pets and pet smart discount are great

    Cons

    numbers are very important to management, some doctors are inexperienced or resentful towards banfield and it can effect the work environment

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow management and Doctors to talk about their production or pet count to nurses because it makes our job feel less important


  2. "Horrible pay"
