Pros

Current IT technology and continuing investment to stay current. Office is beautiful. Open, bright, lots of windows and skylights. very nice facility. Excellent Pet care benefits. Pay and bonus structure seems pretty fair and is weighted to account for individual, team and company performance metrics.

Cons

Human care benefits are terrible. High deductible health plan makes it very expensive to get sick or just go to the doctor. Undesireable neighborhood office location. As many people commute long distances, the company has still not embraced work from home or telecommute options widely nor has it instituted a 4-10 workday policy for appropriate job descriptions. There still seems to be an underlying attitude of mistrust of the employees opinions. Management wants the feedback but may or may not listen when the time comes to make a decision.

Advice to Management

You'll get more loyalty from your people if you offer better health care benefits. We know you are working on it...

    I worked at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Good intentioned, smart, caring organization that is not overly hierarchical. Good mix of promoting from within and bringing in new talent from the outside. Fantastic access to opportunities within Mars Inc and to leadership training and CE.

    Cons

    Typically slow, long roads to getting things done. Leadership needs better focus to provide clear priorities that are not frequently changed. The mix of old and new cultures/ mindsets can be challenging. Aversion to change is apparent with certain teams.

    Advice to Management

    This is a great company with a fantastic mission. Focus on quality, not quantity. Try to get the in-hospital experience right and provide the necessary support to them. CTS runs a little too lean and hasn't scaled teams to properly support the number of locations.
