    I have been working at MWI Veterinary Supply full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good compensation, benefits package is good, you have the ability to work on your own without being micromanaged as long as you are working and servicing customers.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth or promotion unless a territory is given to you. Management is difficult to communicate with at times and the company in general is sort of stuck in an old school mentality while trying to move forward. The industry is changing which could change how distributors fit in the marketplace.

    I worked at MWI Veterinary Supply full-time

    Pros

    Great experience interacting with local and regional veterinary, with the ability to further knowledge of the field while building strong relationships.

    Cons

    Often felt like a number and not a person, especially for a company boasting about being a "family". The region in which I was located was under poor, unsupportive management but I do not feel this reflects the company as a whole.

    I have been working at MWI Veterinary Supply full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a job and I am thankful to have it.

    Cons

    Growth is good but when it is too fast you begin to breakdown the infrastructure and integrity of the internal processes. Company should take note to start rebuilding the internal structure so that best practices are used and the tools to enable this are provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to evaluate structure and establish standards that companies this size use. It is well and good to keep the small business feel but when you let anyone and everyone make up their own rules you end up with confusion, inconsistencies, communication conflicts, and bad business practices that will impact your bottom line and the culture.
