I have been working at Glidewell Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The work is easy and boring. Anyone can do it. Only will recommend this for a first job out of college or it may be a good job if you didn't go to college and don't plan on doing so.

Cons

If you are a working mom or have a family - this job is not for you. There is very little if any work/life balance. Minimum paid holidays, you'll end up using the 2 weeks you have to take off the days your child has off from school. You don't even get Christmas Eve off as a paid holiday. Even if you worked for the company 20 years and are a manager you still only get 2 weeks off. Absolutely no career advancement for anyone other than lab technicians. Unless you plan on waiting 20 years to get a promotion...

Advice to Management

Listen to employees who have a need to change or alter shift times, and don't worry so much about production. Your employees will be happier, instead of feeling like a production robot.

    I have been working at Glidewell Laboratories full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employees come first. Flexible scheduling that allows me to be with my family more. Management really cares for the employee and helps them in growing. They provide career paths for the employees. Company invites change for growth and in doing so, they are continually growing.

    Cons

    Lack of standardization, difficult in making changes as it not driven from the top down in all cases. Decisions are not easily made for projects due to too many people involved.
