Management will push you to your limits with very little support. Colleagues are great , animals are great, the stress and micro managing, not great!

Does not force employees to follow Covid rules.
I had to complain many times when management was not wearing a mask. Employees would not keep 6 feet distance. Some employees would just come and sit in a cubicle next to you without getting management approval. You had to find disinfectants, gloves, and paper towels on your own. The place was not cleaned regularly.

Terrible place to work- WAY too "SOP" driven
The directors will push you to your limits with very little support, and take credit for all of your ideas or hard work. Colleagues are great , animals are great, the stress and micro managing, is very prominent and exhausting. They do not trust their employees or empower them to make positive change. They will tell you to refer to "SOP's" rather than taking the time to actually train you. Once you defer from an SOP, they will SLAM you for making any mistakes, even if you are new.

The animals make it worth while to work here.
It’s very rewarding to work here, although stressful as well. The animals make it worth it, unless your manager/supervisor sucks. A lot of amazing people work here, and the overall atmosphere is great.

Bureucracy... bullying... and puppies
Managers and supervisors aren't leaders here and there's a manager for every single little thing.. they only care about making money and looking good and being bossy. Customers to them are just numbers on paper and managers and some supervisors use intimidation and fear to keep workers quiet and treat them like enemies. Management blames staff for the weekly turnover but humiliates staff in front of customers.. union unhelpful. Pays good and fur cuddles are nice.. Keep your head down you'll be okay...if not you'll be depressed and burn out very quick.
