Internal Communication

Little to none. Long term planning with short notice of implementing.

Work-Life Balance

Rough balance around Halloween and Christmas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication, better planning, listen to employees.

What I like about the company

The animals and their keepers. They have true passion for the animals that are in their care. This needs to be expressed better to the public.

What I dislike about the company

Management, poor planning/timeframes, poor communication.
