    Pros

    The people who work in this charity care about the welfare of pets and people, including their colleagues.

    Cons

    Communication isn't great between departments and different remote teams which can lead to friction, but this is improving through virtual meetings.

    Well being for its people is a priority for Blue Cross.

    Avoid for your mental health

    Pros

    Incredibly caring frontline people who are trying to help animals.

    Cons

    Animals unable to get into centres. Zero direction from leaders. Strategy changes constantly every few years and never seems to actually help animals. Always a changing vision for the future so nothing is stuck to and everyone counting numbers of pets helped/moved/seen/breathed on...it starts to mean nothing. So many empty pens, no vet staff to help urgent cases. Changing priorities constantly that it feels the charity wants to help people as a priority over pets as strays and complex cases seen as too difficult to bother with. Don't understand the charity anymore.
