Generally OK, but going in the wrong direction.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros- Competent co-workers, best pay you'll find as a veterinary support staff member, good hours, generally a positive environment.

Cons- Very little room for advancement or increase in salary, poor communication between management & staff or between departments, constant IT problems, organization is becoming more corporate and money-driven with less concern for employees and client satisfaction.

Advice to Senior Management- Definitely need to work on cooperation between departments.
- Consider annual salary increase to reward positive performance reviews.
- There is very little follow through with proposed major changes - if major changes are in the works, they need to be implemented and not just talked about.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
