Great culture and team, really made me feel welcome. Great attitudes in our hospitals and people dedicated to caring for pets.

Dr. Morgan has a great bed side manor and is easy to get along with and is friendly but a pushover with other employees.
Poor patient care overall, high client turn over, under experienced staff. When I tell you I have literal PTSD from working here, I’m not joking. I worked here for a few years with some of the most toxic people I’ve ever met in my life. The doctor who used to own the place was one of the worst! He would literally lie to client's, not follow ANY OSHA protocols whatsoever. Abuse patients physically but gaslight you into thinking it was your fault. If something went wrong it was never his fault, it was always yours. He has no accountability what’s so ever! Not for any of the SX he messed up on, patients he’d leave overnight without supervision that would pass away, nothing. The worst part is the clients worshiped the ground he walked on. Even today I’m sure. He would pin all the staff against one another, it was horrible! The staff all had Stockholm Syndrome so bad they stayed till he was let go after he sold, including myself. I stuck it out till I was introduced to someone who gave me an out. After I left, I learned how much over the YEARS I was there I had been taught wrong that could have cost a patients life. Education is key, so is continued education.3Vetcor Response3mo
We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and concerns with us. Here, we strive to offer continuing education opportunities for our team members to build their skills. We would encourage anyone with similar concerns about patient safety to reach out to Human Resources so those concerns can be heard and addressed confidentially.
- 1.0Sep 13, 2023Veterinary Hospital ManagerFormer Employee, more than 1 yearWest Palm Beach, FL
My hospital is great and if not for them, I would’ve ran within months of starting.
Onboarding was awful. Benefits are subpar, PTO for both supporting staff and doctors are some of the worst in the corporate industry. Aside from that, regional management has been the sole reason I have decided to pursue a career outside of the veterinary field. He has to be the rudest and least motivating person on this earth. He thinks ruling with fear is how to receive respect, and Vetcor is okay with this. He’s suppose to be our advocate and yet he makes you feel awful whenever he speaks with you. If you are a new manager wanting to pursue this career, please look somewhere else because you will not have the support you need especially if you end up in Florida.Vetcor Response3mo
Thank you for sharing your feedback and concerns. We respect and value every member of our team. Though you enjoyed your team members, it is tough for us to hear that we fell short of your expectations. We hope current employees with specific concerns will reach out to Human Resources so their feedback can be heard and addressed. We wish you all the best in your next role.

Veterinarians are great humans and deserve to be helped.
Corporate dollars rule the day. Values tend to be lip service rather than the goal. Leadership bullies people into silence. Efforts around culture are disingenuous (managers in the room while employees are supposed to give authentic feedback). Several people have been let go for not going along with toxic culture. Worklife balance is very good though.Vetcor Response4w
Employee experience is at the heart of what we do and we are happy that you feel the work-life balance is good. We take our culture efforts seriously and appreciate your feedback on that process. We are hopeful we can build on what we have and make the work environment even better. We are glad you are here with us as a valued team member.
- 1.0Aug 7, 2023Hospital ManagerFormer Employee, more than 1 yearNorth Port, FL
Vetcor is pretty hands off until they are not. My hospital has a team that relies on each other for support. We get the job done even if Vetcor has no clue.
Regional Management is scary and degrading. He speaks to Hospital Managers with no respect. He is not motivating and brings anxiety whenever he is present. I should never feel complete dread when asking him a question. PTO is AWFUL! We are not allowed to give our staff's bonuses outside of Vetcor, because Vetcor wants to control the money coming in and out of your office. The Helpdesk is also the worst! They make you feel less than human if you don't know where to look or haven't been told the rules.3Vetcor Response4mo
We appreciate you taking the time to share this feedback with us. It is disappointing to hear you felt management didn't live up to your expectations. We strive to ensure every team member feels encouraged and supported so they can be successful in their roles. Management works diligently to ensure the team has what they need to thrive—with that, we would encourage any current team member with similar concerns to reach out to Human Resources so they can be heard and addressed confidentially.

Great place to learn, be hands on
Time does not roll over into the next year, so limited approval during holidays and if you don’t use your time it’s gone, no January vacations unless you want to work all year just to earn that time back Not comfortable broadcasting other issuesVetcor Response4w
Offering hands-on learning opportunities is something we are proud of. Providing comprehensive benefits is one way for us to say thanks for all you do. We appreciate your thoughts on the level of benefits you feel don't quite meet your expectations and will use this feedback to continue exploring solutions that best support our employees. We appreciate all you bring to the team and hope to continue partnering in your career success and growth!

The office manager is great to work with.

Hands of supervision. You can do what you want and still get paid most of the time
VetCor merged with PPV last year and has degraded a great deal. Kind of expected since all leadership positions are previously PPV management. Most legacy VetCor employees are pushed out. The IT department management is non existent. The hired CIO is incompetent and doesn’t even know the industry (HIPPA doesn’t apply to animals). Most of the support staff has no skills and rude when they call…..if they call in a timely manner. The corporate team has an ego that they are better and aren’t really there to help the hospitals. Very rude and condescending. Pay is horrible! Don’t expect decent raisesVetcor Response3mo
We aim to make sure team members feel seen, heard, and cared for. We're disappointed this wasn't your experience. We are proud of our team members and are always looking for ways to better support them. Your feedback is appreciated and we hope current employees who have similar concerns know they can reach out to HR to have a confidential discussion.

Work life balance is all
Very low pay and verryyyy small raises but constantly increasing prices . They do not adjust pay to cost of life and insurance takes a huge chunk of my very small paycheck1Vetcor Response2mo
Thank you for leaving a review. We are happy to hear you have a healthy work-life balance here. We are proud to invest in employees' futures through a variety of incentives including competitive compensation, perks, and employee benefits. We are disappointed to hear you felt the compensation fell short of your expectations. If any current employees have questions regarding compensation and benefits, we encourage them to reach out to their direct supervisor to discuss options that may be available. Thanks for being a valued part of our team.

Great work-life balance, decent benefits
poor internal training, no growth within the companyVetcor Response4w
We love to hear that you have a good work-life balance with us and enjoy the benefits of being a team member. Continuing education is something we work hard to provide to all of our team members. If you haven't already, we encourage you to ask your Hospital Manager or Regional Manager about Vetcor University, our online learning platform that launched this year.
