I have been working at Willamette Dental Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits, Leader in Evidence Based Dentistry, Great people work here, Much Improved Reputation from Years Past

Cons

Sr. Management, Management Salaries Well Below Competitive but ever increasing responsibilities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To run a large company like WDG and live up to aspirations of being Employer of Choice, it is unwise to have a leader at the top who does not listen well. From what I've seen once the owner of the company makes up his mind it is nearly impossible to change it. This is why he surrounds himself with "Yes Men" and the company has a difficult time moving forward in a truly positive way. Innovation and continuous improvement is wonderful and the right passion is there, but Sr. Management loses sight of the realities in the offices and tends not to listen to those on the front lines unless they fit the Yes-Man mold. Dissappointing at best.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good PTO.
    Some good, smart people.
    Marketing is doing a great job and good strategic direction.

    Cons

    Small company modernizing so lots of growth opportunities for a few years but after that then you hit a wall. Don't get on the wrong side of the political fence....career suicide.
    IT software group is a mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the politics, grow yourselves.

    I worked at Willamette Dental Group

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice people and enjoyable to work with. Good benefits for long term employees. Office manager willing to listen to your concerns.

    Cons

    Upper level management operates the clinic as a production facility pushing for a high level of procedures to be completed in a specified time frame which denies the staff the time to provide quality care. Interacting with many patients who are unhappy with their access to care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many administrators and levels of management which add to the operational costs putting a strain on profitability and adds to the pressure to complete procedures to generate revenue.
