    Pros

    Great stock, competitive salaries & great production personnel.

    Cons

    Salary personnel work long hours. Middle management has NO clue to task on hand and are mean & cut-throat to each other, reactive not proactive due to NEVER money in budget to do things right! Work with 40+ year old tooth molding equipment that has seen it's better days! GM left due to cheap corporate ways! Corporate old school and good ole boy system that is out of touch with facilities and production personnel. Too worried about bonus incentives to take time out of day to visit facilities and talk with people.

    Advice to Management

    Invest into latest technology for tooth molding equipment than sit on yearly bonuses! Visit the facilities more that once a year and talk with the people who do the jobs than listen to middle management.

  3. Old school management, burned out employees

    Pros

    Promotions do not happen only at year end. People always talk sweetly in person meetings and on emails. Some people are actually nice.

    Cons

    No work life balance unless you are executive or a hourly worker. Lags in technology, product development. Does not recognize talent; unable to put right people in technology which adds to the problem multi-fold as it increases the burden on anyone and everyone who uses any system.

    Advice to Management

    A higher growth of income from operations than sales growth is showing as everyone is burning out. It might be too late to grow the company if the work life balance is not addressed. Reduce the top layer excess.

    Pros

    Good products and well known name recognition within the industry. Benefits are nice with free dental. Training is very detailed.

    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 Management

    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.

    Advice to Management

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