    Pros

    Meet new animals weekly. Play a role in the quality care of all animals. Teaching and public speaking a necessity. Rewarding.

    Cons

    Experience dependent on the support of superiors and culture created by coworkers. Limited resources for animal care.

    Advice to Management

    Select more well rounded individuals presenting desire for growth as opposed to just filling job. Create workplace culture.
