    I have been working at Zoetis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people make all the difference!

    Cons

    Would appreciate the opportunity to make more money while in the same position (but increasing responsibility). Grateful for any increase for a job well done, but annual percentage increases are small.

    I worked at Zoetis full-time

    Pros

    Very good Employee Benefits, if you work in sales or marketing you will have access to great leadership and be favored by the CEO

    Cons

    Senior leadership amature hour. Lots of emotional decisions made - Senior Leaders who came from much larger companies still want to have all of the perks of those days but expect the rank and file to "change their expectations." Rank and file are often reminded that they are not "Big Pharma any more." The only one truly walking the talk is the head of R&D.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to all functions - sales is great but there needs to be care and investment in enabling functions, IT and Marketing in particular.

    Pros

    Great environment for interns to progress and learn new things. The company is very clear that they want all interns to come out of this internship with new knowledge so they really encourage everybody to venture into new departments for a day or so in order to get the most out of their summer at Zoetis.

    My experience with my manager was amazing, he made sure to show me around town, update me on projects, and even encouraged me to break away from my project every once in a while to go experience new things within the company so that I can see what else there is to experience in research and development.

    Zoetis also brings interns on various field trips throughout the summer which is amazing and tons of fun as well! They really spoil the interns with tons of "souvenirs" from Zoetis

    Cons

    Housing is not included which is a negative, but Kalamazoo is a college town so there are always students looking for subleasers.

    Advice to Management

    Other than to include housing for the summer, nothing.

    Pros

    A great position to start right out of high school or college. There are lots of opportunities to move around to different departments. Great benefits and 401K package.

    Cons

    The pay could have been better and the bonus system needed some re-working.

    Pros

    Industry-leading product portfolio. Companion and Large Animal field force highly respected by customers. Innovative products recently launched and a promising late-stage pipeline.

    Cons

    Promotions often based on familiarity rather than merit, capability and accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Advance management capabilities and people leader skills at all levels. Consistently solicit and promptly act on colleague and customer feedback.

    Pros

    Flexibility in making decisions and accountability for everyone. Great tech support and sufficient sales and marketing dollars available. Good investment in R& D.

    Cons

    Does not invest in all opportunities. Marketing presence has been much lower recently on key brands. Diverse product offering makes product focus difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the field and research

    I worked at Zoetis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck and that is not even worth it. The only reason I stayed there is I already had 20+ years when Pfizer sold off the animal health division.

    Cons

    Disrespectful of experienced employees. Unqualified management. My old manager (not sure how he was a director) is not even qualified to work as an entry level hourly worker. Management treats their employees like they are minions and should be happy they even have a job. They make you do unnecessary time consuming work because the management does not have a clue. They will not listen to the seasoned experienced employees.

    Advice to Management

    Quit before you totally run the company into the ground.
