The owners are also the Medical Director and the Hospital Administrator. The HA is the owner's daughter, and she is "administering" the hospital into the ground with zero veterinary background. She micromanages to the Nth degree, holding endless meetings which never seem to accomplish anything.
The remainder of the staff, surprisingly, is fantastic. Everyone is quite friendly, welcoming, and supportive. The coworkers are really the reason why they have any staff retention at all. We always tried to have fun *in spite of* what management was doing.
The facility is absolutely beautiful also.
There definitely are perks to the job: appropriate compensation and benefits are offered, the hospital is gorgeous, and the coworkers really are friends.
Eventually all of the positives are overshadowed by the negatives: failure to provide transparency with compensation (doctors are prohibited from running reports and there are no statistics provided to aid in honing your practice), extremely low doctor:tech ratio (usually 1:1, sometimes fewer techs than doctors), lack of consistency with inventory (running out of vaccines, prescription food, heartworm preventatives, flea and tick topicals, common medications, etc), inconsistency in scheduling with sudden changes made to your schedule WITHOUT NOTICE.
The medicine practiced in AHN is generally high quality, however, it is subject to the limitations imposed by management including the lack of necessary inventory.
Although generally not true of the doctors, it seemed that other support staff could be targeted at random for bullying by the HA. Sometimes this occurred until said staff member was fired or quit.
There really is amazing potential at the Animal Hospital of Nashua, but it seems that no only will that potential never be achieved, the place just might go out of business entirely due to poor management.
