Featured Review

Former Employee - Community Employment Specialist

I worked at Goodwill part-time

Pros

Great opportunities to play to your strengths

Cons

Not enough opportunities to grow within the company

"Good employer"Oct 17, 2020

Current Employee - Veterinary Nursing Team Leader

I have been working at PDSA full-time

Pros

A lot of support and CPD opportunity. Fast paced and chance to get a lot of experience. Nothing like private practice.

Cons

Although there is opportunity for progression a lot of the management in each hospital have been in their position for a long time and are very unlikely to be leaving in a hurry. It can get stressful... and is a very busy environment.
