I have been working at Pacific Dental Services full-time

Pros

I am a National Support employee (4+ months) here in Irvine, CA. My review is specific to the the culture here at our 'corporate' headquarters. We have over 300 employees in this office (marketing, IT, finance, HR, real estate, development, etc.). We recenlty moved into this new location off of Red Hill / Alton and have to say it is a beautiful mix of form and function. Based off of silicon valley, it feels very much like a start-up company, open, spacious, and collaborative.

Pros:
-stable, stable, stable (in this still recovering economy)
-depending on department/position; plenty of flexibility and room for growth
-change, process improvements, new blood (I see all of this as positives)
-the company has hired over 1000+ employees in the first 6-months of 2013.
-I personally have a great team and a spectacular supervisor

Cons

We are not going to win any awards for benefits. Health insurance can be pricey for families.

    You work Monday thru Friday

    Advice to Management

    Learn what "micromanagement" means then figure out how not to do it

    I worked at Pacific Dental Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are as miserable as you will be, so you will always have a support system. Actually for me the training I was received was good, and I was taught a lot that helped me in my position

    Cons

    Long hours, poor upper management, no promotion based on merit only on personality, and if you are "liked" health benefits are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advise, but I highly doubt they will listen.
