    Pros

    Decent vacation time and health insurance, company car is a perk.

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance, constant travel, being on call 24/7 makes it extremely hard to have a life with family/friends/hobbies, one phone call and you have to leave home/plans at the drop of a hat. Would be best for a single person without spouse or children.

    Advice to Management

    New hires and hatchery staff need a training program and not thrown to the wolves. Need better work life balance. Hatcheries need an able maintenance person to go through an organized training to help with minor fixes instead of calling someone who may be hours away. Needs to be easier to take a weekend trip without risking being called and have to leave.

    Pros

    Bench level scientist are great. Some managers are also good. The science is top notch.

    Cons

    Many of the managers are ambitious above all else. They only care about the people who work for them in terms of how much they can squeeze out of those people. I have been here for many years and it used to be a great place to work. Lots of collaboration and support. But in the last 4 years things have gone down hill and it feel like a meat grinder now.

    Plus almost all entry level positions in science are contract. Those workers do not have a good chance to get hired in.

    Advice to Management

    If someone has the guts to disagree with you, listen. Don’t crush doesn’t just to make yourself feel right.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good vacation package

    Cons

    Management is absolutely toxic. Favoritism is a huge factor. Call center is extremely understaffed. Salaried employees are forced to help hourly workers while their own department is suffering terribly from a 60% cut in staff, but management could care less. Management to busy talking about their personal lives / weekends and cackling in meeting room all day instead of trying to find more people to hire or helping their current staff who is DROWNING. Equivalent to a sweat shop. Extremely toxic and extremely high turnover. Within the last 3 months, over 10 employees willingly left call center because of this impossible environment, even without having another job lined up.

    Advice to Management

    Fire and completely replace the customer service management.
