    Pros

    They are mostly hands-off in terms of managing the practice.

    Cons

    They are not proactive in improving the clinic's facility or overseeing the clinic managers.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the employees (such as the associate vets) to bypass clinic managers to institute changes for the practice.

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

    Pros

    I have nothing but good to say about the corporation. It has been a smooth transition and my time off has increased a lot due to my having been employed for many many years. They let me keep my seniority from clinic that was bought. Sick days increased also.

    Cons

    I took the basic insurance plan right after buyout cause it was part of what was bargained for me at acquisition. The better plan would have given me a pay cut. The basic plan is not nearly as good as the insurance I had prior to buyout.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that long term employees are given priority positions

    I have been working at VetCor full-time

    Pros

    Comfortable, enriching work environment, good compensation, stellar colleagues and support staff; small group, feels like family.

    Cons

    Essentially, none. I would enjoy another veterinarian with whom to case share, but I am delighted with my current work mates.

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

    Pros

    We have only been a VetCor hospital since September. We now have a great benefits package. My compensation is fair for our community. So far it has been great transition for our hospital. When VetCor came in. We were told nothing would change, and nothing has changed. Our Manger keeps us informed of activities and Life At VetCor.

    Cons

    Non so far. We are pretty happy.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to have other VetCor hospitals near by.

    Good benefits, work places vary depend on the individual practice culture. VetCor doesn't micromanage hospitals so they retain their individual automony

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

    Pros

    While I have worked for VetCor only a short time, I have had the benefit of working for the hospital both before and after it's transition to VetCor. I have been pleased that all of the things I loved about our hospital before the transition have remained, while adding in the benefits offered by a corporate institution.

    Cons

    None to report at this time.

    Pros

    TONS of support from all over the company! Being part of the corporation gives you the opportunity to offer more to employees/coworkers. Also, being part of VetCor gives you a sense of community that is larger than just inside your practice walls.

    Cons

    IT department is too small & overwhelmed. However, the employees working in that department are very smart and as soon as the department grows, this shouldn't be a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the IT department!

    I worked at VetCor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None that i know of

    Cons

    Too many to list. Took a small town vet’s office and turned it into a money hungry corporation. Many clients left. Company pushed unnecessary medications and procedures. Raised all prices. Making money for this greedy corporation became more important than people and pets.

    Advice to Management

    stop trying to make profit your priority
