    I worked at Ormco (more than a year)

    Pros

    They offer a great product to orthodontia. I believe the best on the market for patients. Very innovative, high quality control, and lots of choices. Good training on technical issues.

    Cons

    Management has become focused on numbers and reports. Not depth of understanding what the dentists are telling the sales staff. I worked on an inside sales position servicing General Dentists. We were all misclassified as overtime exempt. With all the processes we covered besides sales, my hours were typically 60 hours a week. Benefits were good. Compensation terrible. Based salary is twice minimum wage with commissions only 1% of what is shipped. That violates the CA law for the inside sales exemption from overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Despite your Voice of the Customer surveys, you are not in touch with the dentists comments to sales people. They are in need of more training, better discounts, and better technical resources. Share more of your profits with the people who make you successful. Compared to other technical sales jobs, you pay 1/3 of the compensation.

    Pros

    Pay is competitive for "full time employees".

    Very low hire rate and current management is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees more, they help drive the success of the every day business!

    Pros

    Bonuses were good when we use to get them. The family of coworkers was great before people were either let go or left for better opportunities.

    Cons

    Management is weak. They are only looking out for themselves and what puts them in the best position to advance. They are very short sighted and don't seem to care about the big picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start worrying about the long term impact of your decisions for the company's direction. You may think you will not have to worry about it because you will be off to another Danaher company in a few years but it may just come bact to haunt you. Karma.

    Awful management who seem to gain joy from making others suffer while passing the buck on any of their shortcomings.

    I worked at Ormco

    Pros

    Range of projects that one is given, the chance to interface directly with customers and mostly good co-workers are all pluses.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement. Public humiliation at the hands of superiors when a mistake is made. Management is rife with conflicts of interest and cronyism that wouldn't be tolerated at any other place. Having to beg for time off, even if hours are going to expire due to the cap. Finally, zero communication or commitment to personal development from management. 90% turn over in the group every two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management seriously needs to communicate, value its employees, take some serious ethics courses and anger management classes. More necessary, management should just be bounced out of there and Ormco should start from scratch.
