I have been working at VCA Antech full-time for less than a year

Pros

I'm in the tax department, so my experience is limited to that area:
- Folks in other departments are by-and-large very responsive.
- The environment is fabulous to work in: dogs hanging around, but not causing a nuisance, beautiful offices from the inside, casual attire and interactions.
- My boss has been fabulous to work for. She's a great blend of giving guidance while still allowing for my own decision making.

Cons

- Very poor benefits, but this is hopefully getting better since they've hired a VP of HR in just the last few years.
- Pay seems a little below the average.
- Parking for employees is pretty bad. Although I got lucky and have a good spot, many employees have to find parking on the street or in a nearby structure. This also makes life difficult when you have a guest coming to the office and can't park anywhere.

    I worked at VCA Antech

    Pros

    Discount is helpful when caring for your own pets.

    Cons

    Managment is awful. Especially the new ones who have the book smarts but no general knowledge of how to run an office. Company is full of gossipy staff members who will not make a new comers experience pleasant. Overall, your pets health is NOT their #1 priority, its the MONEY. People who work within those doors know the truth. Listen carefully and save yourself some money. They treat staff like they work at a sweat shop in China. Minimal staff to get payroll down. This means sloppy care for your pet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out while you still can.
