I have been working at West Coast Dental full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

experience with HMO/PPO insurances, managing people/staff

Cons

extreme pressure of upgrading and producing
must go along with shady business practices
micromanaging from people without even a college degree

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop being shady to employees and patients, it's going to catch up to you.
give people a vacation now and then

    I have been working at West Coast Dental full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is small enough to be able to provide lots of learning opportunity for those who seek it.

    Cons

    Lack of organization, lack of operational structure, lack of rational leadership, lack of strategy...Really seems like the decisions are all made out of impulse with no real logical thought process to support them. The company culture is that of finger pointing, blame, and making employees feel disposable and taken for granted. You really get the feeling like the company wouldn't think twice to rip you off. They don't value employee's loyalty or hard work. It's just a bad feeling all around. This culture was created by the owners and carried on by the top level executives. Not a fulfilling or happy place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make rational decisions, listen to feedback, admit when you're wrong or don't know, and turn the culture around by appreciating employees. Also, be more diligent in your hiring process.
