Poor Management, Poor Medicine, Poor Politics
Hospital Manager (Former Employee), NJApril 1, 2013
Pros: can't think of any
Cons: there is not enough space!
Dollar signs are the most important thing to this company, the overall contribution margain to the company is everything, even if that means throwing away good, quality medicine to make money. If you like selling people things they don't need, and turning your staff into sales people also, than this is for you. If you truly care about animals and thier – more... people run! This company should be the "poster child" for Corporate America. They only want you if you can make money for them, and they don't care at what cost that may be. Don't compromise your morals to go to work for Vetcor.....I did it for way to long!!! Resigning was the best thing I ever did. – less

Fast-paced and enjoyable place to come to work. Offers a great work/life balance and truly believes in personal and professional growth. Co-workers are friendly and supportive.

Awesome; Human Recources Dept. has to place something good about the company in order to push the bad ones down. This is a typical Vetcor tactic!

Steer clear!
former (Former Employee), mid-westFebruary 5, 2013
I worked for this company for about 3 years. I had a lot of dealings with the home office and they are terrible to deal with! All money, money, money. They treat their employees awful! Vacation time??? Hardly! They lump your vacation time and sick time together and still the most you can ever get is 4 weeks. I think we had 5 paid holidays a year. The – more... number of hours you are expected to work if you are salaried is almost 60! – less

Quality medicine, poor politics
Client Care Specialist/CVT (Former Employee), Verona, WiDecember 28, 2012
Pros: great pay and benefits, nice coworkers for the most part
Cons: poor management/leadership, very little room for advancement, little personal time
I worked for this hospital for many years, and I was made promise after promise of advancement that was never followed through on. Over those years, the clients seem to become just dollar signs walking through our doors. Customer service seem to go out the window. Along with being able to see and do many unique things, the pay and benefits offered are – more... also great, but they come at a great personal cost. Employees are expected to work on projects such as community outreach outside of work hours, unpaid. I'm sorry, but I feel work life and personal life should be able to be separated without feeling like a horrible employee. Management is sneaky, they discuss issues about you with all other employees with you being last to know there's an issue. I've been in the veterinary field for 13 years and because of my experiences here, I have left the field. If you like working in a high school like atmosphere, this would definitely be the place for you. – less

Poor company culture - puts money first instead of optimum pet care
Veterinary Technician (Former Employee), ILAugust 14, 2012
Pros: does offer healthcare and other benefits that small clinics do not offer.
Cons: revenue focus leaves you feeling like something is missing...
I worked for Vetcor for about 4 years. This is a typical corporate philosophy veterinary company - the emphasis is on making money and increasing revenue, not on doing what's best for the pet. The veterinarians are on partial commission salaries and as techs, we are expected to add on sales whenever possible. When economic downturn occurred, prices – more... kept raising to try to make more money, which drove almost all of our clients away! I eventually left because I wanted to give good patient care, not push for more sales even when the pet did not need it. – less
