    Pros

    Great work life balance! The energy of a small, start up culture with corporate benefits (owned by PetSmart). Everyone is eager to grow the company and prove out the value of the media business. Employees are all dedicated to improving the lives of pets and their parents through content, advertising, and education.

    Cons

    Being owned by a large corporation sometimes causes slow movement.

    I worked at Pet360 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work. Great working for a company focused around pets (if that's your passion) and a good group of talented people to learn from.

    Cons

    Management was terrible, not sure how things are currently at the company. If you can be completely independent, might be good for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people if you want them to stick around.

    I worked at Pet360 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some good things about working at Pet360: the atmosphere, the people (not the higher ups), the relaxed feeling, and the office space.

    Cons

    Things that weren't great about Pet360 was their unwillingness to aim for more, they too often just settled for good enough. And the higher ups really brought everything down, but most of them seem to be elsewhere now so it's probably better.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a fair number to your employees, actually discuss career paths with them so they can see themselves with the company, and trust people to do the job they were hired for.

    I have been working at Pet360 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dogs in the Office
    Flexible Hours
    Ability to learn new systems, tools, & disciplines
    Relaxed office culture & dress-code
    Complimentary High-End Barista Bar in the office every other week

    Cons

    Complete and utter lack of commitment from parent company to invest in the business. This has lead to mass exodus of talent & trust has essentially eroded to nothing. Incredibly frustrating and disheartening for those of us who believed there was something worth staying for and building up.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent.
    Stop chasing the tail; innovate, think, and execute instead of waiting for the perfect 'thing'.

    I worked at Pet360 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a challenge to write one review about my time at Pet360 because the experience was different before and after the acquisition by PetSmart. Both companies have a love for pets and have made that a part of the culture which makes for a happy work environment.

    At Pet360, I enjoyed working with a team of talented, passionate people to build something great. It was challenging work and you knew you were a part of building something special.

    We adapted and changed directions (which some would say is a con) and if what we tried wasn't good or better, we fixed it, learned and moved on.

    The culture of transparency and sharing information gave you a sense of ownership and pride and you could feel that in the vibe in the office. We participated in a lot of opportunities to give back in the community which added to the vibe and helped you get to know your colleagues on a different level.

    Cons

    Integration- let me start here. The biggest disappointment is that there was no attempt at a fusion and the integration strategy was to suck the little company into the big company machine. The timing of ownership and leadership changes at PetSmart (shortly after the acquisition of Pet360) left a lot of people wondering about the future.

    Otherwise, the cons are normal for big companies- decision making is painfully slow and you will spend a lot of time in meetings. Good thing pets can attend meetings.

    Advice to Management

    You have some great talent working at Pet360. Try to be a little more human and transparent, trust that they are capable and can handle it. Share your strategy and they will help you achieve it (it worked for the former leadership and it might work for you too).

    I have been working at Pet360 full-time

    Pros

    Great people, dogs in the office, good starting salary, obtainable track for promotion, aggressive company growth (read: more opportunities for internal promotions), fun extracurricular culture, flexible work schedules, work-from-home days, great time-off / sick day policies.

    Cons

    Every negative review you've read is most likely the work of temp workers or call center employees. There are a lot of jobs here that have high turnover rates and employees in those roles are unhappy and therefore turn to Glassdoor to bash the company. Like last reviewer, take negative comments with grain of salt. Company needs to improve the PetSmart / Pet360 balance for sure. PetSmart dictates the company's future, but they are responsible for a lot of roadblocks. The relationship is far from perfect.

    Advice to Management

    I think most full time employees here are happy. Just get more aggressive with hiring new people and giving employees a voice to petsmart.

    Pros

    Dogs can come to work with owners, and non-management team members are great to work with. Company culture is something special, or at least it was.

    Cons

    Executives are clueless, place blame instead of giving clear consistent direction. Most people spend a majority of time having to educate exec, rather than executing plan.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to point fingers and micromanage - you're slowing the process down and not providing anything of value.
