Beware The Corporate Beast
NVA has an amazing mission, but the people they hire to lead do not hold those tenets to their performance. Laystaff and hospital managers are grossly underpaid. They refuse to match retirement, so there is no reason to work here because there is no retirement. (however, DVMs get whatever they want, since they think DVMs drive the revenue) Their leadership comes from other businesses, not veterinary medicine. So their concern is with the bottom line and not with medical care. Managers asking for money in their budgets to pay their staff a living wage see those budgets cut without any warning or explanation. The leadership of this company has no idea what happens in a veterinary hospital every day and they continue to recruit MBA holders who have no experience in the field. That tells me that they don't care about the individual hospitals, they care about profit. Each hospital is responsible for their own culture, thank god, or we would be at each other's throats. Do better. NVA.
hospital staff is amazing
corporate attitudes, no compassion for people, no retirement, your boss has no idea what you do every day
