    Management at the lab cares about its people and is so much better than what was there five years ago.

    I worked at MicroDental Laboratories full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place to work. Learned a lot and made some life long friends. Very busy dental lab never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Had 6 different mangers over my 10 year stretch.

    Advice to Management

    It seemed the harder I worked the less I got noticed. Trying to get any raise for working at110% is like trying to pull teeth. Literally...

    I worked at MicroDental Laboratories

    Pros

    The only pro one can think of about this company would be the low cost dental insurance plan for its employees.

    Cons

    This is a miserable and uncomfortable work environment where new employees feel less than welcome. In addition, the company runs extremely lean when it comes to the number of employees it hires and retains. The Finance/Accounting department lacks high performing employees to say the least as they are also moody and unprofessional. In addition, management in this same department lacks what it truly takes to be... good leaders, which also means being good trainers to their new and existing employees for which they are not. Beware, there are managers who are “lifers” that have been employed there for many years. During the interview process, it was repeatedly stated that there would be no advancement opportunity for the position for which I applied. Nonetheless, the customer service/lab/production areas also employ less than stellar performers who are moody thereby creating an uncomfortable and difficult work environment. Benefits are severely lacking and almost non-existent. This is very surprising because the salaries/hourly pay is low by Bay Area standards. The health care premiums are high, no floating holiday is provided, no 401(K) matching, and there is barely any vacation/sick time. Potential candidates, please beware and take a good hard look at this company prior to joining.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to ensure that competent and professional employees are retained and hired instead of retaining the status quo of unprofessional, incompetent and miserable people. In addition, proper training is necessary for all positions which is severely lacking. Furthermore, the benefits are virtually non-existent. A closer review of the severe lack of benefits and employee morale should be top priorities of... management.

    I have been working at MicroDental Laboratories full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Microdental has been known as one of the best performing dental labs in the US for decades, but the paint is chipping for a long time now. This former flagship seems to be a sinking one ... The heart and soul of the employees are at the right place - hard working and absolutely committed to make "it" happened - month after month... The right ideas and visions are there, but...

    Cons

    The company is struggling to find its balance and the right direction for the future. Employees are getting more and more nervous and dissatisfied. They fear and mistrust the senior management and investors due to continues waves of layoffs and cost reduction measures - and each 'was" the last round... Sinking ship

    Advice to Management

    Senior management shouldn't change their mind every 5 minutes, take responsibility and stick to proclaimed changes...

    Pros

    The people are super nice and everyone is fun to be around

    Cons

    The lab is falling apart, sales are down, people are getting laid off. Don't see much room for opportunity here anymore. I feel underpaid, and raises are out of the question.

    Pros

    MicroDental is one of the top two largest labs in Northern California. They make sure to stay up-to-date with leading technology in the industry, but still have strong support for classic dentistry methods. MicroDental provides excellent quality products quickly, efficiently, and at an affordable price.

    Their Sales Representatives are 1099 employees.
