    I have been working at Implant Direct

    Pros

    The product that is being sold to the customers is great product. I do believe in the product that is being sold.

    Cons

    The management team tend to be bullies. There is not room to grow.

    I worked at Implant Direct full-time

    Pros

    The company has great benefits and there was a strong sense of "team".

    Cons

    The company culture has changed for the worse since the retirement of the president. New leadership is superficial and selfish with a strong focus on their own personal gains - not what is best for the company or employees. There is a high expectation of long hours and minimal reward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest in your communications. Allow people to speak up without fear of retaliation. Respect gained through intimidation is not truly respect.

    I have been working at Implant Direct full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent product line, good value for the customer, good benefits. Most customers recognize the name.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management team. They have no clue what we deal with, no understanding of needs of customer. A bunch of time-wasting big-spending middle and upper management types, do none of the heavy lifting to make our number. When things go South, play the blame game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two words "Ride-along" Start looking at product line and own up to the weaknesses in QC. Quit dividing our time and focus on our core-product. We only get 5 minutes with these docs if we are lucky. You expect us to detail 10 different high tech products?

    I have been working at Implant Direct

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Company car, gas and expenses paid. Great flexibility

    Cons

    Compensation is not great. Your sales go up and compensation down. They adjust your baseline higher each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensation will slow the turnover down

    I have been working at Implant Direct full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you have a degree, its a way to get your foot in the medical devices industry. The products are innovative and they sell themselves. Easy way to get yourself situated with Salesforce.com

    Cons

    The commission plan is structured in a way where its very hard for you to make money. Its 100% up to you to figure out if you're being paid the right amount every commission paycheck. They penalize you for any returned products even if its months later. Management has no idea what they're doing. High turn-over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees are your most valuable asset. The business has to evolve with the ever changing dental implant industry. Go back to school and get a MBA degree..all of you.

    Pros

    Great starting job out of school for sales, benefits, expense account, car, flexibility

    Cons

    Changing comp plan every year, better you perform you screw yourself the next year with 20-30% higher baselines, wild west cowboy style 80 ' s management style, company's horrible reputation to sell with, back orders galore, lemon girl guide cookies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is the biggest disappointment and ID will not grow with how they lead region managers. They all stare at excel spreadsheets all day and don't see the big picture. "Kill" has offended every rep and so unprofessional

    Pros

    I am trying since half an hour to write something positive about this experience, but it is impossible.

    Cons

    the Group is quite big, so policies are existing (which the company is not following)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Management has to be changed!
