I worked at Red Bank Veterinary Hospitl full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free continuing education on a regular basis, lots of free food, pays for VTNE exam, scrub and sneaker allowance, and exposure to specialty areas of medicine. Doctors are great (and all very nice), and so is the level of medicine offered there.

Cons

Company has not given out any raises in over 5 years and salaries being offered to incoming employees are lower than what they were in the past. Very difficult to get cross-trained, switch departments, or change schedule. Management needs a lot of work. Also need to give more than six weeks ahead for time off. VERY departmentalized (you will ONLY use skills within the department for which you are applying), unlike a small practice where you do a little of everything. For example, if you are a dermatology tech, you will do nothing but load appts, make phonecalls, and assist with various allergy tests. Technicians in the General Practice area can expect to make a LOT more phonecalls than typically required at a tech job (usually teching is more geared towards nursing and technical skills). You will learn a lot about medicine, but will not learn any technical skills to use in your career. If you get bored easily, like to continually do something new, need a flexible schedule, or want opportunies to move up (or even move laterally), this job is not for you.

Advice to Management

Open up possibilities for cross-training (to those who want it), or potentialy even provide workships. Anyone who enjoys being a vet tech (and doesn't want to be comfortable and lazy) will always be hungry for new skills. Give raises (you're lucky anyone's stayed after five years of no raises, it's unheard of).

    I worked at Red Bank Veterinary Hospitl full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With so many departments, one can have a very diverse experience working in different wards with in-patient care, and there are a lot of wonderful people who are happy to share knowledge and experience for those that are interested.

    Cons

    It's easy to get lost in the shuffle and just show up, punch in, and go through the motions. Being such a huge place, it can be hard to find recognition for individual efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Positive reinforcement is a fantastic tool, just make sure that it is adequately merited by the recipients. Those that seek it, may not always be entirely deserving.
