Pros

Highly ethical company that provides proven products to extend the life of dogs and cats and make sick animals healthy. Products actually do what they say they will do. Good work/life balance - a place you can be proud to work.

Cons

A bit traditional in it's approach - overly conserverative - could be more aggressive on claims and blowing our own horn.

Advice to Management

Get more aggressive on claims through social media and traditional advertising. New products coming through are great but people need to know about them

    Cons

    * Bad economy and business environment has put a lot of cost pressure on the business
    * Marketing especially seems to have suffered
    * In trying to change to e more successful in the future, the growing pains have been very tough
    * This was a great place to work, and likely will be again, but it is a tough time there right now.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is relooking at the fundamentals of the business, which at a time like this they should be doing.
    Don't abandon all the things that make Hill's special, they are what defines the brand and in many ways can bring a return to better times.
