Featured Review

Current Employee - Dentist

I have been working at Pacific Dental Services part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

I was a 30 year private practice dentist when I moved to California and was hired by PDS. I have come to see soo many pros to this forward thinking company that I would never go back. to private... practice. The support professionally is unrivaled. Exposure to new technology and training was so amazing Support by the company and my professional peers during medical challenge I went through was invaluable. Had I been in private practice I would have been in serious jeopardy on many levels. The management team and founder have developed an entity that describes how I see dentistry for the next generations of dentists and I feel fortunate to be a part of it

Cons

Not so many cons after 10 years . What I originally saw as cons, have become common sense practices and procedures that are necessary to move forward with this type of organization

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing, and that includes growing and changing and evolving

Former Employee - Corporate Trainer

I worked at Acquire full-time for more than a year

Pros

You are surrounded by like-minded individuals who can see the bigger picture for opportunity within an industry. You are a part of a business that is constantly evolving which means that the company... is in a healthy spot, from a business perspective. If you perform, you are acknowledged. If you over-communicate, its appreciated. If a day doesn't go your way, your co workers pick you up. The internal model of the company promotes a teach-others approach because the only way you can move up is if you help develop others, grow a team, and hit goals. This business requires grit, perseverance and self awareness. But it will help you develop these things if you don't necessarily have them.

Cons

This job holds you accountable. If you are responsible for developing people and you aren't able to help them succeed, that means you have some learning to do. There are hard conversations when... expectations aren't being met. Standards of employment are high and if you are unable to self-manage, you will weed yourself out. It just is what it is. You have a few weeks to gain momentum and are given the tools to learn, but you must seek out knowledge and guidance. If after several weeks, you are unable to keep up with top performers but you do not seek help, that's on you.

Advice to Management

Create the weekly schedule before Sunday night. Have another preemptive conversation about pay, benefits and schedule before someone starts so no one can say you were "hiding anything." Let junior... level leaders contribute more to daily meetings and strategies.
