Horrible Management and Childish Atmosphere
Vet Technician (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – December 15, 2018
When you take over a clinic you should really get to know your management and watch them work for a while; some people are not meant for management. Egos need to be in check before you're fit for management.
Like many specialty hospitals,
they think they are the best of the best. Trust me they are not, they don't care about their employees, they don't care about the area clinics, and they don't care about the customer. They care about the almighty dollar. If you are coming from a general practice, you are in for a shock when you hear how they talk about your previous clinic (your friends, your former boss, and your roots in the vet field).
Long work days, no breaks (that includes lunch, hope you can stuff your face really quick in 5 minutes).
Gossip, gossip everywhere. Little teenage, high school cliques. Every good person that works there leaves quickly, because they hate the culture.
Rules change daily, with little respect to how to implement the rules, or how that will change the dynamic of the team and workday. Training is done by trial by fire.
I learned just how much workplace culture means to me.
Want to leave and find something better? No worries, they'll hold the door open for you as opposed to find ways to keep you there.
Good competative pay.
Horrible Culture - reflects management.
