    Pros

    Great place to work with a genuine desire to help the wider community and encourage their staff.
    - Good social events
    - Friendly staff

    Cons

    They grew too fast too quickly and were eventually bought out

    - need to take more care with the recruitment process

    Advice to Management

    - keep to your core values, but don't simply take on staff for the sake of it. Work hard to ensure they genuinely add value and that the business is able to keep up

    Pros

    Passionate, enthusiastic, knowledgeable team. Very thorough and detailed business value proposition, which enables the company to have a focused direction.

    Cons

    Bottlenecks in management, not receptive to alternative perspectives at board level, which does trickle down to the front line. Out-of-way office location, situated in warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    Try to gain consensus across the board. More team building and employee perks, especially since office location is not ideal.

    I worked at MedicAnimal (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An internship at MedicAnimal is like a pressure cooker: You'll be exposed to a lot of knowledge and responsibilities in a short period. The fact that they serve multiple markets gives you the opportunity to learn a lot about marketing other European countries.

    Cons

    Communication within the company, not a lot of team activities, very short term focused.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on the employees as a shareholder, more support for interns.

    I worked at MedicAnimal full-time

    Pros

    Great employees from all over the world make for a truly international and multi cultural environment.

    Cons

    Irresponsible management decisions such as placing all eggs in one basket (sale of business) and when that falls through not having a Plan B in place resulting in mass sackings of employees. No clear direction or company strategy (at least not made known to mere employees), job insecurity, customer satisfaction and service orientation isn't at the heart of the business even though it should be the main focus, constant price mark downs / Sales in order to increase revenue despite the products not always being available, start-up behaviour even though the company should by now be a grown up business making profit...

    Advice to Management

    Care with a Conscience becomes a joke if it isn't lived by you. Show responsibility for your staff and customers!! Every decision you make should be based on what's best for them and not what's best for you and your pockets.

    Pros

    The place is blessed with great staff...who tend run away rather quickly unfortunately. The idea the business was founded on is quite inspiring and makes you want to believe you're working for good people...

    Cons

    You're not working for good people! Since the new MD arrived late last year the place has culturally deteriorated...the company is only focused on KPI's and achieving unrealistic expectations. No support, no retention measures, no start-up-feeling, no vision, no 'cool factor', no staff benefits etc etc!

    Advice to Management

    Leave! Sell up and get lost for goodness sakes!
