    I have been working at VetCor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    VetCor brings all the benefits that a large corporation can offer, like insurance and an employee wellness program, but does not micro-manage our processes. Our Chief of Staff retains control of the medicine we practice and the products we sell. VetCor allows us to grow the practice the way we want to, without dictating protocols.

    Cons

    I really can't think of a con.

    I have been working at VetCor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The support here is unreal, in a role that is commonly known for feeling "alone" I never feel alone. Upper management is always there when I need them, but they let me run my hospital as I see fit. They support me in my decisions, let me make my mistakes and help me in areas I don't feel confident in. I've never felt so "at home" with a company before.

    Cons

    I don't have a lot of cons for this company. I enjoy the networking that comes with a corporate atmosphere. I suppose just the title corporation for me is the biggest con because if a client gets wind of that word it can be a big deterrent, so making sure that we stay true to ourselves along with Vetcor.

    Advice to Management

    If a hospital doesn't have a COS, there has to be more checks and balances between the manager and the doctors. The manager can only take the clinic so far, if the medicine can't change as well.

    I have been working at VetCor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working for a Vetcor hospital now for about 2 years. It has been a wonderful 2 years. Every Vetcor hospital is different. Vetcor didn't come in and take over the business, changing it. They came in to help and mold what was already here. They have been nothing but supportive and wonderful. The benefits they offer are above and beyond. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else!

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind at the moment!

    I have been working at VetCor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great hospital management without micromanagement of the daily work flow.
    -Allows the medicine aspect of the field to be untouched by upper management.
    -Allows opportunities for growth and advancement.
    -Provides benefits to employees (ie health/life insurance, 401K, paid time off/sick time, etc )

    Cons

    -Some limitations on equipment providers or brands/types that can be purchased.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do the great management that is done in the hospitals and continue to allow the medical teams to do their jobs without a lot of inference. This makes for a wonderful balance!

    I have been working at VetCor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not much if anything has changed since VetCor acquired the company I've worked for, for nearly 13 years, The sense of "home" has stayed the same, but with added resources for updating and upgrading the facility. I have recommended friends and acquaintances to apply for job positions since the change over.

    Cons

    It takes longer for information to get back and forth down the pipeline. But overall it does not hinder our ability to practice.

    I have been working at VetCor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Recently partnered with VetCor. It has been great. Team, Managers, and Professional staff are all very happy with what VetCor offers us all. The transition team was amazing. No question or concern were left unanswered.
    Virtually unnoticed by community. It is really great to have a true support system for just about anything you can think of. Thanks Vetcor.

    Cons

    Non so far. Hopefully it gets even better!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. It was certainly easy to tranisition in. Thank you for all the support and hand holding during the transaction.

    Pros

    Regional Manager is great and a wealth of support as is the corporate office, accounting, payroll/benefits, marketing, IT, etc.

    Cons

    Change in insurance benefits for employees. Access to funds immediately for emergencies. These are just things that are different so not truly a con for working here.

    Advice to Management

    Understanding that transitions are difficult and changing long standing financial habits are hard to change.

    Pros

    Not many advantages and much mental stress

    Cons

    Unhealthy workplace environment. Very poor senior management. Turn a blind eye seems to be a certain senior manager's moto to make herself look good to the company.
