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

Pros

Banfield is owned by the MARS organization, and is driven by the 5 Principles of MARS. For that reason, we have a strong culture that all levels of associates adhere to. If you are interested in the veterinary profession, this is a great place to start because of the on-the-job training available in many states. The team is passionate about pet care and wants to offer the best care to our patients. It is very rewarding knowing you helped save a pets life or kept a pet and family together.

Cons

Can be driven by numbers, like any corporate organization. Some locations are not as driven by the 5 Principles as others. Long work hours which can interfere with work/life balance.

Advice to Management

Need more field leaders to compensate for growing number of hospital locations.

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great hands on with animals, learn alot about medicine and how it applies to specific ailments, training both physically and through media, hands on with surgeries, exposed to different breeds of dogs and cats, working with medical data software

    Cons

    Working 10+ hours most week days and weekends, fast pace, unfair pay, pay increases by the cent, moving up in the company is rare, physically demanding, high turnover rate, not getting enough paid hours, pushing services on clients to increase numbers for the company in order to have enough hours to work.

    Advice to Management

    Make time for your employees to have a viable life. Pay your nurses more money to compensate for sacrifces of the job. Many nurses enjoy the job but are not being valued with the time and money deserved.

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

    Pros

    Client communication is the main experience you will get from working here. Manager is very helpful, personal growth is great.

    Cons

    Would be better if more staff number is allowed per shift, some times the phone calls never stop throughout the entire day.
