    I worked at Discus Dental full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial, marketing driven and passionate about success. Good people and products, appropriate resources, albeit with a lot of blood sweat and tears invested.

    Cons

    Ownership not aligned, in pre Philips days, and excessive focus on cost control to position company for sale.

    Advice to Management

    You bought company for whitening brands (really for Zoom!), dump everything not core to that business.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good team members
    Small company, so you get experience in many different areas
    Passionate people

    Cons

    Owners are bleeding the company and eroding the brands.
    Owners and at times senior exec's don't respect nor value people, they only reward if they are threatened and its often too late. They don't consider the costs of less than ideal management of human resources.

    Advice to Management

    Invest and rebuild your products/brands/business/people

    Pros

    Friendly and fun people, great company luncheons and activities, good products and benefits.
    Flexible schedules.

    Cons

    some employees have false sense of entitlement, leading to disrespects toward others causing inefficiency within the company. The same employees contribute nothing to the company as they do not do much work. No opportunities for growth whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    re-evaluate certain employees - especially those who have been with the company for a long period as some do not have much contributions to the company.
