Pros

Dental experience. But that's it for a software organization. No other good reason to be there. The remaining development group has some wonderful people in it. Really good guys.

Cons

Moved from a solid open-source software engineering organization to a closed minded Microsoft shop. REDUCED their effectiveness as a development organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Firing the senior management at CAESY and running the company from Effingham was a dumb idea. That ended the likely prospects for CAESY in one blow

    I worked at Patterson Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice work balance, cafe and work out room at corp headquarters.

    Cons

    Lack advancement opportunities. Upper management shuts the door on suggestions for improvments, missing the mark and keeping employee retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the employees that you already have invested time and money on.

    Pros

    Good Salary & Comission Package. Management at the district level was fair and worked well as a team. Nice people overall.

    Cons

    Poor communication between Senior and Mid Level Management. Led to finger pointing and poor experience of how a workplace should function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be quicker to make decisions and not pawn off responsibilities to others to wash your hands clean of the situation.
