Positive Outlook

I have been working at Willamette Dental Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits, Leader in Evidence Based Dentistry, Great people work here, Much Improved Reputation from Years Past

Cons

Sr. Management, Management Salaries Well Below Competitive but ever increasing responsibilities

Advice to Management

To run a large company like WDG and live up to aspirations of being Employer of Choice, it is unwise to have a leader at the top who does not listen well. From what I've seen once the owner of the company makes up his mind it is nearly impossible to change it. This is why he surrounds himself with "Yes Men" and the company has a difficult time moving forward in a truly positive way. Innovation and continuous improvement is wonderful and the right passion is there, but Sr. Management loses sight of the realities in the offices and tends not to listen to those on the front lines unless they fit the Yes-Man mold. Dissappointing at best.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good PTO.
    Some good, smart people.
    Marketing is doing a great job and good strategic direction.

    Cons

    Small company modernizing so lots of growth opportunities for a few years but after that then you hit a wall. Don't get on the wrong side of the political fence....career suicide.
    IT software group is a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the politics, grow yourselves.


  2. "Good Progress"

    Pros

    Like seeing the changes in leadership. The COO is a passionate hygienist that gets its all about the patient. Dr. Skourtes really understands this is a dental practice first and the patatients are our first priority

    Cons

    Ned to invest in more technology to make our jobs easier. The EHR is a great start - now we need to simplify and become more into mobile smart phone technology.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let up on mobile technology
