I have been working at Patterson Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Dentist are usually good professionals to work with. No weekends

Cons

High stress/ pressure to get high volume productivity with little training. Management @ Boston mislead you in interview with upward wage+ promotion, but expect more for lower wages. Huge turnover most employees have downward wages over years. If Company profits up why cut wages + benefits/ growth in the division. Had 7 bosses in less than 10 years. Looking for new job. You are totally on your own here. Very poor communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat all your employees the way you want to be treated.

    Pros

    Patterson has a fresh, professional and respectful business culture, is very process oriented and extremely democractic. Work is challenging yet I rarely work over 40 hours a week as the company honors the needed balance between work and personal life.

    Cons

    Advancement is flat, recently our team had two promotions to management without the jobs ever being available for applying within. Employee retention, at least on the analyst team, is quite poor. We've had up to 8 members leave within the past year and a half, mostly due to boredom with the type of work, salary or benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take a serious look at the extreme lack of advancement opportunities in the IT organization as well as focus on employee retention.

    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
