I worked at Petco full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I could bring my dogs to work. Most of the people with whom I worked on a daily basis were great people.

Cons

Too much middle and upper management, far too many Vice Presidents.

Advice to Management

There seemed to be too much focus on advancing to the VP level and far too many new hires were brought in as VPs creating a "too many chiefs" atmosphere.
