  1. Overall good place to work

    Current Employee - District Sales Manager
    Current Employee - District Sales Manager

    I have been working at Brasseler USA (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Makes arguably the best products in dentistry.

    Cons

    Territories are very large so you will easily put 30-50k miles/year on your car. Constant turnover in management and ever changing company focus/initiatives are their biggest problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unless you are trying to become a distributor, take a long look at going back to what you are known for (burs) and focus on innovation there.

  2. Stuck in a rut, misleading on benefits.

    I have been working at Brasseler USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The CEO is great, and that workers are pleasant. It is easy to get time off for the dentist and such.

    Cons

    The is not much room for growth and the pay is not good. The higher ups talk about caring for their employees but they have a pitiful 401k match, low pay, and the tuition assistance that is talked about upon hiring is almost impossible to get approval for and amounts to a maximum of less than typical tuition per semester.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of old ways and allow for improvement.

    I have been working at Brasseler USA full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good atmosphere to work in. Friendly people and good managers. No issues getting time off for doctor or personal time conflicts. Scheduling is nice and benifits are competitive.

    Cons

    Technical jobs have a below average pay scale. some of the managers inhibit growth, but that is an issue anywhere. Only a 1.5% match for 401k(though that may change soon)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at market averages to decide payscale

    Pros

    Brasseler USA is a great company with one of the strongest brands in the dental industry. They pay higher than average wages for the State and region they are located in. Sales staff are paid on based on sales / gross profit and have uncapped earning potential. Brasseler USA offers a full benefits package, including insurance, vision, dental, etc. for full-time employees. The company is very innovative, flexible and family friendly. Brasseler has been through a reorganization of its top management and has good leaders in place. Brasseler USA has one of the best training programs in the industry and strong relationships with leading clinicians in the dental industry. Definitely in a growth mode, in lieu of the downturn in the economy, we are expanding and growing daily.

    Cons

    I haven't really found any downsides.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communications to the employees, it's key.

    This is a company in transition, proceed with caution!

    Current Employee - Distric Manager

    Pros

    The products. The compay is well respected and customers will give you time to discuss new innovations. Begining compensation is in line with industry standards and bonus money is attainable.

    Cons

    This is a comany in transition. You are presented as a consultant who brings value to the customer, but you are evaluated as a transactional comodity representative. As a result, expectations are constantly shifting. Compensation is on the decline. Health insurance has a large deductible, and contributions to Health Savings Accounts as well as contributions to 401K accounts have been slashed. In addition, for sales reps, it is very dificult to get out of "hirring package" (50K a year)which will limit your income in the first two years. They have also initiated a new compensation structure which makes passing 100K a year increasingly difficult. Some reps in small territories actually make less once they are off the hirring package!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide who you are. To your customers; are you a high end consultive company or are you a low cost commodity supplier? To your employees; set consistant expectations. Continue to be demanding, but balance that with a healthy respect for people.
