    Pros

    Steve Bilt the old CEO was such a down to earth person and an amazing and inspiring philanthropist.

    Cons

    Market Leaders are very unprofessional and have of them are not even qualified nor educated for the position. Corporate needs to run better checks and balances on these Market Leaders, have of them don't even visit the office and claim they are working from home. On top of the Market Leaders never being present in the offices, they abuse company money. They run up bar tabs with people who are not even employees of the company nor have any affiliation with the company. They pay for bar tabs with their significant other with the company expense reimbursement policy. Not only are they not present but they fudge time for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to corporate is run better checks and balances on your management team. My other word of advice is run drug test on employees because there are a lot of employees who use drugs and bring drugs into work.

    Pros

    The staff was great to work with. When you need hours they are willing to find some at other locations.

    Not employee friendly. Corporate is more worried about their bottom line than their people.

    Former Employee - Office Manager in Colorado Springs, CO

    I worked at Bright Now Dental full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helping educate people about importance of oral health. Making lasting relationships with patients and co-workers. Working with a great group of people at the office level.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Pay is low in comparison. Employees and patients have no value. All about the $$. Micro managing at its worst. You are told that you need to be accountable and run your office as you see fit but only after lengthy emails and phone calls ensuring that you are doing exactly what upper management wants you to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people they will in turn take care of their patients and making money will take care of itself. Every business is opened to make money, you can value the people that work for you and the patients you are treating and still make money. You should never sacrifice good people to make an extra penny.

    I have been working at Bright Now Dental full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the back office team. Assistants work very hard. They are wonderful to the patients and always willing to help me out.

    Cons

    Management is TERRIBLE! I get harassed on a daily basis for one thing or another. Hard work is never appreciated. Even when I produce high numbers, I get in trouble. Also the pay is very low. If I complain about anything, I get labeled and told to walk out. I stay because I care about the patients I've been with for years and I feel sorry for them, for the treatment they will receive after I leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to listen and start carrying about the patients. When you do what's right for the patient, they will trust you and keep coming back. The money will continue to come in. You don't need to get everything you can out of the first visit expecting not to see them again. Also pay your staff more, what they deserve. Quit being so GREEDY!

    There is a lack of competative beneifts from medical, PTO, short-term disability ins, etc. The organziation should offer a more comprehensive benefits package.
