Pros

Good benefits, plenty of employee appreciation opportunities, paid training, diversity amongst employees

Cons

-If you are accepted as dental tech trainee Education department, you may get"tossed" from department to department meaning you will learn one thing for couple weeks and then be set up for an interview only to find out that position is already taken or no longer needed. -At times, during "slow season" not enough work/hours may be available. -Depending on department, there are constant changes you have to keep up with. -Strict meal violation policy -No part time positions -A bit sexist as management likes to allocate certain jobs to certain genders

Advice to Management

Connect more with employees, as previous poster said, often times some of the managers/QCs (not all) feel as if they are "better than the rest of us" and therefore seem "distant" and hard to communicate with.

    Pros

    This company is best suited for those who are just out of school. It offers good benefits, plentiful employee appreciation days, and a company-wide Christmas bonus (based on the number of years worked at the company). Yearly reviews offer generous opportunity for pay increase if you perform above manager expectations.

    Cons

    Most employees must punch a time clock that is closely monitored. Only managers do not. Certain departments are glorified - be warned! Many long-time employees (most who are now managers) feel entitled to act however they wish -- and they get away with it. Only two weeks paid vacation and very few holidays paid off. Managers are all men, for the most part, so it's a boy club of sorts. If you are an ambitious woman, you won't be able to advance your career with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the talent among your employees.
