Corporate and Regional Management questionable

Management (Former Employee)

ProsGood employee discount
Might be lucky to work at a decent individual hospital resulting in good coworker relationships

ConsMinimal training provided from the corporate office so it's hit or miss whether the environment will be good.
Terrible pay structure for staff and veterinarians. Veterinary pay structure conflicts with time off benefits. Poor time off benefits for all staff
Policies and procedures inconsistent. Observed questionable unethical decisions made by regional and some hospital management. Failure to treat employees consistently and senior corporate management takes very little interest in field/hospital employees. Employee terminations have been due to personal dislike versus a business decision.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management has to invest in better forums to determine the best for the company and not rely so much on regional management (they are not always the best source for information or decisions). Policies and procedures should be tightened so less opportunity for unethical damaging decisions; however, there should also be compromise and collaboration between the regional managers and field staff for the best for each individual hospital. Field staff deserve better pay, benefits, recognition and fair, honest treatment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
