    I worked at Patterson Dental

    Pros

    Good money, unlimited potential, good benefits, local co-workers are great to work with. Company is very well respected within the dental community.

    Cons

    Get everything in writing, they do not stick to their promises. Superiors don't know what the heck is going on at the local level. It's the good-ole boy network, if you are in, you're in. Branch managers don't stay around long, here one day and gone the next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more knowledge as to what is going on outside of the Branch office. Think of your employees as a person and not a number. Praise your workers more and reward them for their work.

    I worked at Patterson Dental full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    flexible Hours, great employees to work with, benefits were great with lots of options and easy to renew online your benefits each year along with free company stock and great training.

    Cons

    Company is one of the higher priced margins and product pricing is higher then competitors with no room to come down as it's company philosophy to sell at highest margins possible and justify that by providing better service
