Support from management

They have been very supportive of me.

Teamwork

I like working with all the staff. Everyone is really good about helping me when I need help.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Everyone is friendly and we all work well together.

Career Development

We have staff training seminars on a regular basis. We have online training available to us too.

Overall compensation for your work

I feel I get paid well for the position I have. There are benefits too - like paid holidays, paid vacation, animal care, medical insurance, retirement plan, etc

Office / Work Environment

Professional, positive, busy place to work. Everyone really cares about the clients and their pets. And it shows.

Work-Life Balance

Since Long Animal Hospital is open 24 hours a day, I have the ability to work during the day or at night. Being in college, it has been nice being able to work at night and on the weekends - and getting the hours in need.

Company Image

I see everyone doing their best to provide the very best of medical care and client service. The animal hospital has been around for a very long time and has an excellent reputation in our community. I see family members - 2nd and 3rd generations bringing their pets to us. To me, that speaks volumes!

What I like about the company

I like working here because it feels like family. Everyone is caring, helpful and supportive.

Company Culture

This is a family owned business and they make each staff member feel a part of the family. They really care about each and every team member!

Support from management

They have an open-door policy. The Hospital Administrator is a good listener and works to find solutions to any issue presented.

Teamwork

Everyone seems to go out of their way to help one another. It's nice to know they will help you any time you need them.

Internal Communication

All of us are kept up to date on everything. Most of the communications come through our hospital email account or through one of our team leaders.

Office / Work Environment

This is a fast pace environment with everyone working together to care for our clients and patients.

Work-Life Balance

My supervisor works hard to be fair with the scheduling and giving us time off when we need it.

What I like about the company

I love that they truly care about their staff and their clients.

Company Culture

Hostile work environment.

Support from management

Leadership does NOT set realistic expectations, nor communicate clear goals, nor involve employees in any decision making processes.

Teamwork

Teamwork is not encouraged in this practice. People are encouraged to tell on each other for very small infractions.

Freedom to work independently

No, you are not trusted to work independently. You are monitored continually with cameras.

Internal Communication

There are no meetings with employees where achievements are discussed. If you want to progress in your position, you MUST do this on your own.

Gender Equality

Women are the majority in this practice, although they are NOT treated as equals.

Attitude towards older colleagues

This management prefers younger workers and does not value the majority of their older employees.

Career Development

The veterinarians in this practice are required by law to participate in continuing education to retain their licenses. The employees, however, are not encouraged or supported in theirs.

Overall compensation for your work

The compensation is standard for this industry but a great deal of the benefits have been discontinued.

Office / Work Environment

The work environment is very pleasant as the building is only 2 years old. The only problem is the air conditioning and the computer system do not be adequate to support this large of a building.

Environmental Friendliness

No, there is no concern for the environment. The recycling is done in the dumpster.

Work-Life Balance

No, you are NOT allowed overtime except in situations where scheduling was not done correctly and there are not enough people to cover a shift.

Company Image

Not any longer. The reputation of this practice has suffered in the past few years due to mis-management.

Job Security

There are NO jobs here who have any security. People have been terminated simply because someone who has limited power, didn't like them. You can be doing great one day and terminated without cause the next.

Handicapped Accessibility

There is one ramp for access to the downstairs, but there are NO elevators available to the public.

Workplace Safety

The environment is compliant to OSHA, however, there is very limited to no training for safety.

Challenging Work

My work was very challenging and I was proud of my production and contribution to this practice.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity is practiced only to a minimum. However, diverse ideas and opinions are NOT supported.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Suggestions are not accepted by this management.

What I like about the company

Getting to know new people frequently.

What I dislike about the company

Management promotes a hostile work environment and encourages people to tell on each other for petty incidents.
