    Typically hire management from outside industry that does not know how this industry and working with distributor reps works. Sometimes unrealistic quotas and large territories.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, interesting products, avg pay.

    Cons

    No innovation, slight arrogance based off of company history.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Industry is changing faster than the company. What was excellent 15 yrs ago is now average as others have caught up. Vision for the future is near sighted.

    Pros

    Overall very stable and excellent company. Excellent employees.

    Cons

    Company is living in the past, no new product development, any new products come out with poor launches and incomplete product lines. Reps aren't making bonus money. Core products becoming obsolete. Top reps are leaving for other jobs outside the industry.

    Invest in R&D and get in tune with industry trends.

    Pros

    York is a very nice community with low cost of living and few hours from great metropolitan areas. Washington DC is a couple of hours by car and NYC is about three hours by train.

    Cons

    Some behavior by senior management is quite questionable and border line unethical. If there is an investigation and Dentsply is found guilty, you could be in trouble depending on your level of responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and don't try to fix the results.
