SeaWorld’s Corporate Culture

Friday, December 11, 2015

More details emerge about Seaworld’s corporate culture. An account published in the Dodo by a former maintenance diver Sarah Fischbeck. She confirms claims by other former Seaworld employees about how the animals are managed and how staff are treated.

  • Trainers have little to no input on decisions made about the animals under their care. Breeding, social structure etc are all choices made my cooperate executives who have no interaction with the animals day to day.
  • People are chosen to be trainers based on looks and who fit the cooperate model of ‘show physique’ rather than being chosen for the position based on training and educational background.
  • Employees who spoke out about conditions were retaliated against or even fired
