Working At Zoetis

Furry friend feeling feral? Zoetis is here to help! Since 2013, Zoetis has been discovering, developing, and commercializing medicines to help your animals get well soon. They serve vets, livestock producers and anyone who has a pet companion.

Even though Zoetis has only been operational since 2013, its staff has over 65 years of experience in the animal health field. They have served people in over 100 countries.

Their vision is a simple one: healthier animals for all! Whether it's a farm animal or personal pet doesn't matter.

Forbes named Zoetis one of America's top employers. It wasn't because they just do a good job of shipping medicine around the world. It's because Zoetis employees are challenged to love animals more than the animal owners do!

Diving Into the Values at Zoetis

Placing Value on Empathy

If hard-working animal lovers aren't enough for you, I just don't know what is. But it is easy to love animals, right? They're all so cute. Even the ugly ones somehow. What isn't easy is innovating better ways to take care of them.

Zoetis values their research and development that leads to better and more effective ways to treat animals. They always try to be on the cutting edge of the industry.

The company also promotes and advocates for pet adoption through programs called Zoetis for Shelters and Operation DOGRUN. Zoetis also organizes the World Veterinary Day 5K Charity Run in China. They give all the proceeds from that race to four different non-profits supporting... you guessed it: animals and veterinarians.

The agriculture business, especially the animal aspects of it, can be nasty at times. Zoetis is rebelling against the old fashioned ideas regarding the ag business by supporting new and innovative projects.

The Zoetis Pack

Are You a Little Ruff Around the Edges? Not A Problem!

Have you ever heard someone say, "I'm a cat person," or "I'm more of a dog person myself."? Those are the types of folks you'll find occupying the workplaces of Zoetis. You kind of have to be, though, right? If you are indifferent about animals, why even sign up?

But aside from just being animal lovers, they are a very diverse and educated crew. With a female CEO, this is one company that has made diversity and equality a high priority. The staff is almost 40% female and 38% ethnic minorities. Those are numbers that tend to blow other companies out of the water.

Dawn, who is a Global API Lead with Zoetis, said: "It's the high-level strategic piece that gives me a buzz." Those are the types of people right for this company, the type that gets that "buzz" from their work. It shows you are passionate about what you do.

The Culture at Company

Empathetic people creating a welcoming culture

This company is made up of people who are naturally drawn to those who don't have a say in the matter. They are empathetic people, which are the best kinds of people. Empathetic people make for the best working environment and culture because they always put others' needs ahead of their own.

That's what you'll get at Zoetis. You'll get people that truly care for others. And if you aren't that, then you might get found out, quick. This overarching ideology leads to a supportive environment where people aren't afraid to ask questions.

And as I mentioned before, this is a very diverse group of workers. This is a group of workers from all walks of life. If it were me going into a career with Zoetis, that's something that would be especially exciting.

With that diversity comes a unique perspective. Something cool and rewarding Zoetis does is highlight working mothers, and names a Working Mother of the Year each year.

And no animal-centric company could ever be complete without a Take Your Dog To Work Day. Every Friday at the corporate headquarters in Parsippany, NJ everyone is welcome to bring along that special pal.
