    I have been working at Glidewell Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Salary, Subsidized Cafeteria, Onsite Health Care which include a clinic with an MD, PA, Accupuncture and Massage Therapy, and Gym, Caring Owner Mr. Jim Glidewell,

    Cons

    Company has grown too quickly. Mom and pop shop mentality persists. Many inexperienced staff thrust into management positions sans adequate management training. Legacy staff with sense of entitlement.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management consultants/advisors and begin a management training program.

    I worked at Glidewell Laboratories full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The customer service is great

    Cons

    The technical advisors have to lie to the dentists about everything including the final outcome of the case. The QC is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people and staff like individuals and not like they are a cad cam machine.
