    Was once the best place to work for any technician...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros--They are generally flexible with your schedule.
    --On site deli is a convenience while working long hours.
    --Not much else to say.

    Cons--Zero communication between management and employees.
    --Zero compensation increases for several years to good hard working employees.
    --Again... none to poor communication.
    --Employees are not made to feel worth much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and take action. Reward good hard working employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Caring Doctors, Bias Company, NOT Family Oriented, Poor Administrative Leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFast paced environment, client/patient relationship, good location, deli on site for busy long days.

    ConsCliquish environment (doctors and management), Unsupportive leadership, Lack of communication, Failure to lead by example from upper management, Expected to overachieve in current position but without having the proper advancing/training tools, Continuous animosity between both business (regrouped for image/competitor's sake), and health insurance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBusiness should evolve with the right leaders (management). You may want to reconsider your amateur administrator and his employment background history (experiencing first hand his work ethics and why he wasn't able to maintain jobs). IT department should be kept as IT and not as the "real" hospital administrator for the company. Poor management moral is taking your company in a different direction and with competition in town you may not keep your company's integrity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Generally OK, but going in the wrong direction.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    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
