    I worked at Glidewell Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many positions available, Employee lounge with usable computers for browsing as you see fit, lenient on clock in and clock out times according to lunch.

    Cons

    Low pay, overworked, underappreciated, and many of the employees have various opinions in the same position and makes it difficult, considering they have to quality control differently all the time, the QA position needs to be standardized.

    Advice to Management

    Be more helpful and less evasive of helping employees and being genuine.

    I have been working at Glidewell Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many employee appreciation events all year, including Knotts Berry Farm (open to employees + family only!), frequent on-site BBQs free for employees, other fun events and fairs. Extremely friendly work environment, from janitors to executives. Advancement opportunities to those who may not have similar opportunities elsewhere.

    Cons

    Some of the benefits could be better. Limited PTO. Parking is difficult (some lots are ~15 minutes walking distance).

    Advice to Management

    Remain transparent and remember that your employees are people!
