      Amazing Company to work for

      Pros

      Great People. Family Atmosphere. Amazing environment. Connections to last a lifetime. Work from home is pretty much entrenched in the business. The space I worked in was great and the offices I've worked in and from have a pretty good culture.

      Cons

      Work/Life balance can get tricky but work from home balances that to a good degree.

      Good company with quite flexible working and emphasis on 5 principles. Lots of good people around

      Cons

      Work life balance is not maintained, lots of focus on cost saving therefore less people to do the job. Managers are being appointed from other countries, the process of MDR is not followed.

      Pros

      Benefits & Bonus are nice to have, especially in the current climate. The site is beautiful too.... you can't beat that view!

      Cons

      Too many people 'feathering their own nests'. Lack of direction or guidence from Senior Management. Work life balance is terrible. You are 'expected' to forsake all else for Wrigley. Not enough staff to make the product effectively.... been cut to the bone.

      Not much to gain

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Gain more hands-on experience with pet behavior and some medicine/technology and food sciences/research. -General area of the facilities is nice and secluded. -Work with animals every day. -Maternity/Paternity leave. -Ability to job shadow other areas and departments. -Accrue vacation days after being with the company for 5 years. -Can rollover 40 hours of vacation into the following year. -Some of the people you work with become great friends. -You have the immediate option to adopt a pet once it's placed on the re-homing list. -Good 401k and benefits.

      Cons

      -Very poor management. -Opinions do not matter. -Voices are not heard. -Communication is non-existent. -Very uncomfortable/non-ideal working conditions. -Mentally exhausting. -Extremely stressful at times. -No work-life balance. -Must work holidays and management does not shorten the work day on holidays. -With rotating schedules, it means for 3-4 years in a row some caretakers will be working 7-8 major holidays each year. -Line management does not listen to you nor help you with your problems in the workplace. They do not care. -Numbers being met are more important to management than well-being. -They definitely play favorites. -Yearly bonuses are not good. -Always a hiring freeze or budget freeze. -No transparency at all. -No room for growth, which then turns into a dead-end job.
