    "AR Group - RUN - Negative, hostile environment"

    I worked at Midwest Veterinary Supply full-time

    Pros

    donuts, pot lucks, ceo seems nice

    Cons

    unprofessional atmosphere, oldies environment struggle with suggestions of change, job titles do not match job responsibilities, negative judgemental group that spend more time gossiping about other departments and pointing blame instead of working with other areas for understanding. Lack of training. Ask for better help and you dont get it the way you need it but they sure will wisper behind your back. HR is not for the employees so dont go to them.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the employees that come aboard with more experience of todays businesses and open your eyes to the actual trouble makers who spend a lot of time complaining about the newbies because they just dont like them.

    I worked at Midwest Veterinary Supply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being blind to the corrupt issues at this company is the only pro. Unfortunately, you can't stay blind for long.

    Cons

    Harsh time clock practices, HR practices are unprofessional and not confidential to your issues, Management is untrained and unskilled in their position, IT is old fashion and full of control issues that go against any productivity for office workers. Very low pay for professional positions which is probably why managers don't have a clue what they are doing. HR's only concern is to make sure the time clock rules are being followed, therefore employees main concern is punching the clock and what they do in-between those times does not matter since the managers don't know what they should be doing. This leaves some employees overworked, pissed off and unable to do anything about it since HR is corrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Fire upper management and sell company to MWI.

    Pros

    Midwest the largest privately owned animal health company in the United States and the only one to have never been bought out. The company biggest attribute is the family-like atmosphere.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover amongst the sales force, both ISR & OSRs, most sales companies have to this. Sales isn't for everyone....

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees

    Pros

    There is a lot if favortism and warehouse supervisor wants to be everyones friend and not take care of issues even though he sees and hears about then, let's the m continue to happen.

    Cons

    poor management they do not not do anything about issue as to people making errors day after day and suppose to be a lead which Is crap cause this person used to be a sales Rep and made mistakes and couldn't handle it so the warehouse manager put him back in the warehouse in pts dept as a team lead over 1 person. This 1 person had been over there for alot longer and still wasn't even asked to become a lead.

    Advice to Management

    Need to address issues when you know it is happening and not keep putting it off and listen to peoples suggestions and input and take it more serious

    I worked at Midwest Veterinary Supply full-time

    Pros

    Outside sales representatives have the opportunity to be as creative as they want due to relaxed middle management. Regional managers are expected to operate their own small territory. This requirement allows them to identify best practices and, conversely, pitfalls for their teams.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to learn by trial and error. In a competitive environment, that can be a disadvantage.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to ongoing study of the practices of other successful businesses.

    I have been working at Midwest Veterinary Supply full-time

    Pros

    I do like some of the people that work there.

    Cons

    This company better get on board with change or they will be left in the dust. Upper management does not have a clue to where this company is heading in the future. They play favoritism with certain employees and if management doesn't like you, then good luck! All I can say, the other reviews hit it on the head too.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to suggestions from your employees.

    I worked at Midwest Veterinary Supply (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in veterinary related field and being connected to veterinarians/clinics

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Mismanagement - one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Constant back stabbing, no trust within organization. Management wants to be your friend then throws you to the wolves. Very high school/clique-ish behavior from ALL management. Poo trickles downhill... including all their bad decisions and rules.

    Advice to Management

    You are a small fish in the distribution area. Your pond is drying up. Instead of keeping minions who plod along with your rules, listen to the ones who are raising their voices. They need to be heard.
