    I worked at MWI Animal Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Yoga, gym on site, massages (you pay), occasional food provided. Some people that work there are nice.

    Cons

    Poor management supports other poor management, not workers under them. I was hired for a job I didn't have the skills for and given zero support to learn the skills needed. after 2 years only 1 out of 6 people that were there under this supervisor were still there. Everyone was relieved to quit, be laid off, or fired. HR is no help. Insurance was very high cost. Does not pay market rate for job positions.

    Advice to Management

    realize who your assets are and get rid of the people who are terrible managers, even if they've been there 25 years

    You never know when you're leaving everyday until your shift is called. Too many overlapping shifts.

    Good location not hard to get to. The employees who work their are nice and friendly. Managers and leads are good understanding people.

    Frequent mandatory over-time
    Mood swinging Management Team-never know what mood to expect day to day
    Don't value their employees..all about the bottom line
    No communication
    Core values...it's just something on paper

    Pros

    Bennies and pay are decent.

    Cons

    A very negative place to work. Help Desk is understaffed, unorganized and the management leaves ALOT to be desired. If you want to grow and receive training in IT, this is NOT the place you want to be. Information System group is heavily divided between system admins and help desk, where system admins do not show any hesitation to shut you down if you do anything other than password resets and set up printers. Info Sys group is run by management who give off an aura of professionalism but deep down, there is nothing but hostility and other negative undercurrents. If you apply for this position be sure to demand information about hours and job duties as management understates or fails to inform you about what is really required for this job and what hours you will be working.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, great benefits with several plans to choose from, and lots of community involvement.

    Cons

    The pay to workload ratio could use some reevaluating as their are areas of much needed improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Take serious consideration of employees suggestions.
