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

Pros

The best thing is being able to care for animals and to sometimes help find new homes for the ones who do not have a family yet!

Cons

Some hard things are seeing the very sick animals come in and there isn't anything you can do for but send them to dog and cat heaven!

    Pros

    Well trained nurses, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Corporate unnecessary meetings, protocols. Everything is about the bottom line. Caring for the pets is secondary.

    I worked at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time

    Pros

    It's great to be around pets all day, and to be able to visit at the hospitals as a corporate employee is fantastic. The doctors do a great job with what stress they are put under. The equipment they have in their hospitals seem to be pretty good, although their blood analyzers (CBT) are outdated.

    Cons

    The leadership at corporate is almost entirely focused on money. How to get more people signed up on wellness plans, how to make the doctors work more hours, and how to hire the least expensive techs. They constantly monitor the financial performance of the hospitals, yet don't monitor the medical quality much at all. They make you wait several months before your benefits kick in, and even then it's a really high deductible. High occurrences of pet deaths across all hospitals without in depth analysis of why they occurred is very scary. Doctors are mostly fresh out of school and are not given much downtime to attend continuing ed opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I'll give some, but they are so arrogant and headstrong they likely won't listen. Get balanced in your approach to measurements of performance. It's not all about the money. Treat people with respect, and really live the values you say you believe in. Stop pretending to take input from associates, and actually listen.
