    What a mess

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee) Albuquerque, NM

    ProsYou meet some very dedicated people

    ConsMost of the assignments are politically engineered. About 80% of the staff works and the top 20% are there because of political relationships and payback. Most of the technology management spend their days smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee and are absolutely the most terrible people in the world

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house

    Horrible experience

    Former Vet Tech (Former Employee) Albuquerque, NM

    ProsA great place to start as a student hands on, good place for experience in the field as it's a high-volume spay and neuter shelter environment.

    ConsUnderstaffed and completely out of control. Substandard facilities. Corrupt in a lot of aspects. A few of the techs are very two-faced and will undermine you about your skills when they should worry about their own job. Management was horrible, the clinic manager there at the time was an absolute, unstable nut case who couldn't handle working with people directly. Was given tasks that didn't fully utilize my education and even felt more like a slave at times then an actual tech. There are "too many cooks in the kitchen" and you don't even know who's a supervisor and who isn't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't treat the animals like they are only work. Hire a clinic manager who can handle the stress of a shelter environment. Also, keep tabs on employees who constantly gossip and undermine those who actually want to work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Environment
    IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK WITH GREAT UPPER MANAGEMENT, YOU JUST HAVE TO WORK HARD.

    ConsI HAVE BEEN HERE FOR 3 YEARS PART TIME BECAUSE OF SCHOOL AND BUT I DONT BELIEVE THEY WANT TO GIVE ME A FULL TIME JOB.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to have a little more advancement for younger worker. Give full time jobs to people that deserve it not people that have been there for years.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
