    Pros

    They give you an opportunity to multitask and learn new things.

    Cons

    You are brought in as a contractor low and they undurbid when made permanent. Direct managers have no clue what is needed to make the company successful.

    Advice to Management

    Test the knowledge of your lab department managers. Their inability to lead and understand what is needed is a deterrent to productivity.

    Need to recognize the value of employees.

    Pros

    Great people; passionate about animal health; flexible schedule; care about employees

    Compensation could be better, but is still good; some antiquated systems; sometimes there are too many people involved in a single project and sometimes there isn't enough communication.

    Pros

    There are none please run!!

    Cons

    This company is God awful. I came over to this company thinking it was a well organized family oriented company, instead, I work for a company who set unrealistic goals and could care less about how the sales team feels. Run from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and be honest with employees, set realistic goals,

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

    Pros

    Virbac has the feel of a family-run company. They genuinely care about employees and while they thankfully don't talk about work/life balance, they practise it! Since I joined, I've done minimal weekend or after hours work.

    I see potential for career development at the local level, and globally.

    Lots of products, broad areas from companions to equine to livestock. Agile in approach to product development and business development.

    Cons

    They pay lower than market rates unless you are willing to negotiate. I negotiated as good a deal as I had with a larger company.

    They don't do strategy. At all. There are pros and cons to this - you can make your own strategy and deliver it. But don't expect s coherent approach to what their future looks like - they're making it up as they go.

    Communication from HQ is appalling. The upside is that affiliates outside of France can just get on with things without interference. The downside is the lack of clear message about where we are going and why.

    Advice to Management

    Strategy please!!! And communication from head office to affiliates, and from senior management down. Understand what engagement is. Show us a future and bring us along on the adventure.

    Pay more.

    Pros

    Lot of opportunities as the company aims at growing steadily maintaining its independence.
    Family size business, easy going members of board.

    Cons

    No carreer path, pay and benefits pretty low. No Strategic vision for the next 10 years. Has to define whether is is a Innovative (product and service R&D) or Generic (industrial oriented) company. HQ should be much more international.

    Advice to Management

    Graduate program, definition of carreer path, talent development and retention.
