    I have been working at Animal Health International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I love working for Animal Health International. I was sad to see all the negative comments from ex employees who lost their jobs during the merger. That was a tough time, but boy have times changed. It is a great work environment with co workers who love what they do and have fun at work. You can feel the positive energy when you come to work.

    Cons

    The health benefits are ok, but not great. The company does have a 401K, but only at a 3% match.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep spreading the news about the success of the new company!

    I worked at Animal Health International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The industry Animal Health competes in is growing at an incredible pace, all competitors are comping well into the double digits, that is not the case with this company so draw your own conclusions.

    Cons

    Too many to list. The potential was there, this company had first mover advantage and could have really been special, but the quality of executive team, unit leaders, and field leaders is really poor. Basically every aspect of the business is failing and nobody wants to make any changes, the same retread leaders are moved around and find reasons to blame everyone other than themselves for the poor results of the company. They have really no chance of pulling out of a tailspin with more established national competitors having already made tough decisions and now finding increasing market share, as result there is no room left at the table for this company.

    At the end of the day it is a good ole' boy company that has no identity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really no point, management does not want to here any dissension or competing viewpoints, they have it all figured out and the results speak for themselves.

    I worked at Animal Health International full-time

    Pros

    The company is very large and has a lot of resources along with capital to develop new resources.

    Cons

    The company is very process oriented vs. people oriented. I question the role of outside sales representatives in the organization's long term business model

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers and the needs of your customers prior to planning the future of the company.

    I worked at Animal Health International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Location and staff at the Westlake location. The offered parking garage which is a plus in Texas. Also it is close to many cities like Southlake, Grapevine, and Roanoke.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the salary for the job duties and responsibilities performed. There also was never any opportunities to grow through training or job advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more to your employees and invest in them to keep the good ones.

    Pros

    Animal health industry, enjoyed speaking to veterinarians and techs on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Management, pay, overall company structure. The merger between Lextron and Walco was not ideal. Many people lost jobs or had their pay cut to a point where they were forced out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your sales reps.

    I worked at Animal Health International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Health Insurance,close to home, overworked manager helped when she could

    Cons

    I was hired for my Equine knowledge and they placed me in an 80% dairy territory. I was up for the challange but could not meet their unrealistic expectations in a very short time. Very poor training and lack of support from management and fellow co workers. Their SAP software is beyond ridiculious. I was taking over territory from a long time employee who was impatient, hostile, did not want to give up her accounts.Plus she was offsite in the mid west. Terrible environment and poor managment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The immediate supervisor of the call center had way too many responsibilities on her shoulders. Seemed to me that some of her workload coulld of been delegated to her manager.
