Pros: bring your dog to work, casual corporate culture, comfortable environment
Cons: poor benefits, parking can be rough for some
I saw that someone wrote that the benefits at VCA are great, but I have to disagree. The medical plans cover only basic stuff, there is no maternity leave other than the 6 weeks of state disability, no paid jury duty days, etc. However, I'm hoping this improves as the HR department got their first VP a few years ago, and there have been some big changes. – more... We'll see....
Otherwise, the working culture here is great. VCA has an interesting balance of operating like a small company (e.g. casual attire, relaxed environment and policies, etc.) and like a large company (e.g. very organized, have their overall business act together, etc.). This is a well-run organization that functions very smoothly from what I've seen. For the most part, my counterparts are very responsive, and the technology is up to date. – less
