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

Pros

Great benefits and in some hospitals excellent teams

Cons

Drama and goals that are near impossible to meet

Advice to Management

Have a practice manager actually be able to manage not be the extra hand for every role and then get upset that the management duties aren't completed. Give a manager a place to work not trying to get things done while standing in treatment

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Since MARS acquisition the culture has changed to be more open. There is still room for growth but the direction is right. Employee engagement is seemingly important so they are attempting to listen to employees more. Great bonuses.

    Cons

    Senior management is not in touch with what's going on with individual contributors. Senior management is often unavailable. Management "talks the talk" but doesn't "walk the walk". "Employee engagement" and the "Five Principles" are often viewed as a joke by individual contributors. I think this is all due to growing pains. There has been improvement in this area, but there is a long way to go. Raises are terrible, training is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Raises are a joke, medical benefits are bad. They pay more for people hired into positions than people promoted into positions so long-term employment is seemingly not appreciated. This is what causes people to doubt the sincerity of the engagement efforts and the five principles.

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits, pto, 401k, reimbursement for CE, etc. Lots of opportunity for advancement. Great pay if you work hard and prove yourself. Yearly performance based raises, higher pay for certification. High standards/quality of medicine.

    Cons

    Reputation of Banfield as a whole because of the few clinics who do not uphold to the standards. A lot of focus on numbers, like wellness plans, labor etc, which can at times lead to burnout.

    Advice to Management

    None- focus on wellness plans and labor are part of running a money making business.
