    I have been working at Vein Clinics of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love working in VCA-( Vein Clinics of America). I want to say Thank you for the opportunity to participate in first in VCA history Trainers workshop this weekend.
    Trainers- sonographers and nurses felt recognized, we shared our experience and learned a lot from each other.
    Chris McGreevey, Jessy Farris and Michelle McEvoy did exceptional job working on agenda, discusions and us all the time.
    Trip to Chicago downtown was amazing, Pizza delicious, Chicago night view - breath taking!

    Thank you a million.

    After workshop Everyone including myself felt very important and recognized and more experienced.

    Cons

    We work closely with my doctor and nurse as well office staff to get great results and overall patient satisfaction. I work with other sonographers, US training manager and doctors, Regional director in regards to treatments: protocols changes, solutions, improve audits results and etc.
     I am proud to be member of VCA team. I have very positive attitude about work disciples, my clinic staff, DM and OS specialists. I am true Advocate for VCA. I am truly believed in the benefits we provide and I am able to project this to my patients. I am more and more involved in high quality training new sonographers. When I am training new sonographers for the company I feel I reflect this positive attitude with highest of standards.

    Advice to Management

    Preceptor workshop (like one per year) to share and get more experience. Experienced Preceptors expertise helps more efficient ways to train new sonographers and provide quality patients care in growing VCA practice.

    I have been working at Vein Clinics of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been here for a few years. This used to be a very “closed and secretive” culture. The new CEO (2015) is great. He goes out of his way to update us at quarterly town hall (electronic) meetings. Things seems more relaxed now even though we work very hard. I like my team. People get along well. The company is doing a better job of moving out people who are low performers or just don’t get along.

    Cons

    This is a very busy environment. It won’t work for you if you like a slower pace. I happen to like being really busy. The day flies by. I imagine this is what is behind some of the (vocal minority) negative reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going! We like it. It would be nice to be able to learn more from the other clinics in our network.

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work in an environment where you can make a real difference in people's lives and doing things better (as opposed to maintaining the status quo) is encouraged, recognized and rewarded. There is lots of room for growth and plenty of opportunities to gain new skills. The work environment is more collaborative than competitive.

    Cons

    The fast paced environment is not for everyone. If you are looking for a place to float along this probably isn't a great fit for you. There is also a history under former management of leading by fear and intimidation which is steadily changing but not fully addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize excellence and nurture the culture.

    Pros

    The reason why I like working for Vein Clinics it's because there is no micromanagement, also its family oriented. Everyone gets along. we all work as a team.

    Cons

    Like in every work force there are challenges and commitments however the communication within this organization lacks in many levels. There is room for improvement and I believe they are making those change slowly which I do see.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is the key to success within the organization. However, keep doing the great work you have always have.

    Pros

    Good people. Great Benefits. Reasonable working hours.

    Cons

    Corporate puts on a lot pressure on meeting financial monthly target.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to analyze the market of each individual office so that they can meet their monthly quota fairly. A clinic in a town will not be as profitable as a clinic in a city.
