Do You Work At People For Ethical Treatment?

What is it like to work at People For Ethical Treatment

Do you realize that PETA is *** crazy and anyone with half a brain just laughs them off? How can / could you take your job serious?

Well, because deep down the people I worked with genuinely cared about animals - when something *** crazy came up it meant the chance for people to discuss PETA/vegan stuff/animal rights in way that would capture the attention quickly

I worked a 14 hour day today, so I missed this whole AMA. I'm all for local sourced, humanely raised, food and meats. I love that. I'm first generation non-farmer, and my family's farms have been put out of business due to the times. What I really want to know, is PETA's true stance. To me it seems like pro veggie food companies. I got a pamphlet at at punk show years ago that said, "You can help...... (turn the page) Just eat half as much meat as you do now.) Then had faux-meat suggestions. Seemed like an advertisement for boca burgers and such. Is PETA interested in the animals ethical treatment? Or are they just another large organization that has someone throwing money at them?

PETA's "true stance" is that they want all animals to not be eaten, worn, abused, experimented on or used for entertainment. Using companies in promotion is two-fold, it gets the companies on board with PETA, and there's like 3 million PETA supporters, most vegan/veg, so showing them good alternatives is like showing Reddit RES! Companies don't pay money to PETA, except in the sense of donating stuff for a competition

Are employees required to be vegetarian / vegan? How would your coworkers react if you (or any employee) walked in one day eating a hamburger?

First question would be "is that vegan?!?!" But let's face it, if you work for PETA you know they're anti-meat, turning up with a hamburger would mean being fired or forced out. Employees in certain positions are contractually obliged to be vegan - campaigners for example, can't advocate a vegan diet without being vegan

Although I'm a meat eater and will never stop eating it, PETA videos have demonstrated how cruel the meat industry can be as a whole to animals. Since then, I've switched to free range meats where the animals are at least treated well before slaughter and have cut down on the overall amount I eat. Within the PETA organization, is it ever brought up to rein in the antics a bit, to aim a bit lower, and at least get people to start thinking in that direction? I can imagine that people would be far more open to the argument; "Hey, if you're gonna eat animals, at least get the ones that are treated comparatively well." instead of "MEAT IS MURDER! MEAT IS MURDER! LOUD NOISES!"

Yes, absolutely, I've lost count of the times that someone has piped up and said "well isn't this a bit wrong" but we have to do what the boss says at the end of the day. I was in the same position as a UPS employee who disagrees with a price hike.. either you tow the company line, or you get fired.

Does PETA employ anyone who do still eat meat or do you think.there arecsome employees who just neededa job and are just acting the part of a vegan?

Oh absolutely, you can tell a non-vegan in an office full of vegans, they tend not to last long

A good friend worked for your organization for years on Norfolk. She's always said that most of the field people were people with truly the best of intentions for helping animals but described the upper management and many of the office people as bat *** crazy.

Yeap, she's right, I look at our 15 staff members in the UK and think that if I met them in the pub, 13 out of 15 would be nice to talk to, the other two are the managers

How much does upper management make there? I know over here some PETA folks make a ton of money.

You'd be surprised - upper management don't make a lot of money in salary (looks better on paper), so they write books, and make their money that way

dude, you sounds really pissed with your job. have you taken up your grievances with the "higher ups"? Also how bad can it get with PETA? i mean how can it be taken out/down? i love animals, especially with bbq sauce, but its our RIGHT to eat what the *** we want and nobody is gonna tell me i cannot have a bacon cheese burger with extra bacon on because a pig died for it... edit: LOL for you tofu *** downvoting me...

DUDE, I am pissed with my job, so much so I don't have anything to go to, I flat out quit from taking so much ***.. Sadly, the higher ups are the root cause, when Ingrid Newkirk passes the baton to the next person, you better believe she'll be choosing the most bat-*** crazy person there is to fill her bat-*** crazy boots I'm not about to say how it can be taken down, because I really do see the value of some of the work they do. If they could focus more on education then I can see that things would get better.. And yes, you're right, you have the right to do what you want and say what you want, I'm not going to preach at you (PETA may) but PETA also has the right the same as you to say what they want (within reason) and spread their messaging so long as it's lawful and truthful.. Truth is really that PETA don't care about you, they care about the companies feeding you.

If you were the boss of PETA UK, what would you like to happen?

Sever ties with PETA US, rebrand completely - there'd be a loss of earnings in the short term but long term benefits would outweigh that. PETA Germany do this, I laugh because the only reason they get away with doing what they want is because they speak German and no-one in PETA US do! I would re-hire all the excellent campaigners, online, fundraisers, and other staff that were either sacked, made redundant, or forced to leave through PETA's bat *** craziness - some of these people were way ahead of PETA. Stop funneling money into useless demonstrations that don't make a *** of difference. Re-open the education department that got sidelined, I think teaching kids to respect animals - whether they go animal rights or not later in life, will at least stop some of the nastiest cruelty cases I see day in day out.. Focus more on online than offline marketing - who reads a newspaper and changes their opinion - especially if it's some naked chick protesting KFC.. The biggest and best charities in the UK/worldwide don't give a *** about press, they know that online methods work way better, and cheaper

What is the most overboard reaction to something trivial you have seen PETA partake in?

If you mean what was the most overboard reaction from PETA to something trivial: Every.Single.Day we have a morning news meeting, each staff member reads a publication and sends news stories to the press guy, he then rounds up the stories and at 10am we discuss what we can jump on with PETA messaging. Just last week Cherie Blair drove sheep across London Bridge for some widows fund, that sparked a 15 minute conversation about what we should do to stop it.. meanwhile in factory farms... If you mean what was the most overboard reaction from the public to something trivial that PETA did: Sea Kittens I think - everyone who knows PETA knows how bat *** insane they are, but also at times quite clever - rebranding fish to sea kittens was never going to happen, but because it was such a *** insane idea, people propogated the campaign all over the place, got heavy media coverage and did the job.. But people still thought PETA were serious..

have you got your resignation letter as proof? what are your reasons for leaving?

I don't actually.. as it was two months ago, and by email - their email deletes sent items greater than 3 weeks old, I guess I could email a moderator from my work account.. What are my reasons? How long do you have? * They are fantastically bad at retaining staff, the focus is always on fresh 'meat' pardon the pun, rather than keeping existing staff happy - always overworking them and playing on heart strings to keep you from raising objections. * Their sole focus is to get column inches, that's what it boils down to, yeah they have spay and neuter programs (Stateside) and other initiatives, but everything is geared towards "how much mileage can we get out of this" - in the UK we are only a small office of about 14, we don't have programs or initiatives, we're just PR for animals * There is no praise, only criticism * The forward planning is nonexistent * Everything is done over email, including reprimands, it's very impersonal and it's a quiet office with very low morale at the moment * The management are trained to be arseholes to the staff, and are extremely rude. * They're frivolous with money * They alienate themselves, and think they are above other organisations due to their name and reputation * The final nail in the coffin for me, came after I handed in my notice: By choosing to do a [**print ad**](http://action.peta.org.uk/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=5&ea.campaign.id=15424) with *Britain's Got Talent* winners Ashleigh and Pudsey (A pedigree dog, parents are breeders, animals in entertainment) that flies against two of their slogans "Animals are not ours to use for entertainment" and "Boycott breeders" - hypocrisy at its finest
