    I worked at Patterson Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed every aspect of working for Patterson. I can confidently state that I am proud to tell others that I worked for Patterson. Patterson gave me the tools to succeed in my territory and helped me grow personally and professionally. I am passionate about the dental industry and felt that Patterson offered business growth solutions. Technology and Equipment offerings are "Best in Class".

    Cons

    Stronger sales manager connection to employees. Positive approach to team and local support. Inside team needs higher compensation for support given to sales team. Additional effort needed to hear from the "Top Down" versus the "Bottom Up" approach to business growth.
