I have been working at Petco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

bring your pet to work!
a very profitable co and category
fun job
room to grow

Cons

below par health and pharmacy coverage
building is dirty and outdated
HR out of India is abysmally bad and just a bad idea in general
IT out of India doesn't work well either--need on-site people
Systems (IT) are so old and outdated that current initiatives might bring us to the 1980's
Time off days are stingy

Advice to Management

Invest in your systems and your people.
Controlling expenses is a good thing but creating an atmosphere of scrimping and scrounging for resources inhibits our ability to achieve greatness.
