    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
