    I worked at VetCor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hours and working with pets!

    Cons

    The vets that run this location don't care about the staff at all. They talk about you behind your back to the entire staff on a regular basis. They are very unprofessional. They also talk badly about clients too. If you love drama then it may be the right place for you. It is unorganized. They give very little direction. If you make a mistake you will be shamed in front of other staff members. If you do one thing or say one thing they don't like the vets will make your job a living nightmare and think of ways to make you quit so they don't have to fire you. (Saw this happen to more then 1 employee) After all its ran by a corporation and they usually only care about making money. They don't really care about employees or pets!

    Advice to Management

    The turnover rate is high. Maybe try to figure out why. Half of the employees are scared at this location of one of the vets. Most of the staff doesn't feel valued or feel like they can trust the people in charge.

    Pros

    They seem to care about and keep in contact with the Veterinary Students that have worked for their practices, and reach out to them every so often which is wonderful way to try to bring those students back into the VetCor family

    Cons

    I was leaving to go to vet school right when the transition was taking place with VetCor. I think that initial meeting with VetCor/Owners of the clinic and Staff members their was a little bit of a disconnect between Corporate and the Owners of the practice. I feel that meeting should be planned out thoroughly on what the Staff need to hear, such as vacation rolling over, If you still have PTO will the Owners still pay that out before the buy out, things of that nature. Instead of staff members asking questions but neither party has a great answer. SO maybe VetCor should help in prepping future Acquisition Owners on what to do and what things to expect as far as questions go from their employees. Because a lot of employees felt really uneasy after that meeting.

    I have been working at VetCor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Each practice is allowed complete autonomy to prectice their best medicine in their community with their clients. What the corporate side adds is the most amazing support. Everything from highly skilled IT, marketing, accounting, and so many more... all there to support the hard working doctors and staff and growth of each individual practice. VetCor has made all my childhood dreams of what it could mean to be a vet an everyday reality. I should have partnered with then 10 years earlier. I LOVE MY JOB!

    Cons

    Absolutely none. At the end of the day the corporate office just wants to see each practices individual success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your amazing teams and giving them the space to grow and thrive.
