    I have been working at Ormco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a handful of employees who have been with the company for decades, making it feel like a family environment and always willing to lend a helping hand. Everyone is friendly and you'll feel motivated to keep up with the teams. Great for development.

    Cons

    Lots of change recently. Change in location and managerial positions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ormco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Long standing company and strong product reputation.

    Cons

    Do not support loyal employees and do not nurture internal career development. Some managers do not carry degrees, though it is a requirement in job descriptions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't let personal feelings get in the way of an employee's developmental growth. Be less discriminatory. Don't encourage negative behaviour

      I have been working at Ormco full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      They have reasonably priced medical, dental and vision

      Cons

      Pay is mediocre. Work you to the bone regardless of whether you are labor force or upper management. No work life balance. Expect to be treated with diarespect. Culture is about doing less with more, producing and money.

      I have been working at Ormco full-time

      Pros

      -tons of opportunity for career development -great salary and benefits - ability to move to a different OpCo within the Danaher company

      Cons

      -terrible (and i mean TERRIBLE) culture -poor performance is rewarded -top-down style management -absolutely no work-life balance -Management has zero respect for their employees -No clear vision/executed very poorly -Giving it one star was generous -stuffy and catty office environment

      Advice to Management

      Feel free to step off your pedestals for five seconds and take a look at how overworked and unhappy your employees are. I have yet to meet a single person that enjoys their job at this company. The company's poor performance is directly related to disengaged and unsatisfied workers. Stop creating an environment where people are only capable of doing the bare minimum to survive. A competitive environment is fine- but don't...

      I worked at Ormco full-time

      Pros

      Good people. Come and go as your please.

      Cons

      The pay is so so. There is no room to move up. Management battling for power.

      Advice to Management

      Work as a team and create some mutual goals.

        I worked at Ormco full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        It is across the street from a shopping center that has a lot of nice places to eat lunch.

        Cons

        Aggressive timelines are to be expected. Everyone has more work than they can possibly do. Expect to be blamed if anything goes wrong. It's every man for himself. They are ignoring their big brands to focus on digital solutions, which no consumer has ever heard of. The expectation is to make money at the cost of everything else. Assume there will be lay-offs at the end of every year. If you make it through December,...

        Advice to Management

        You don't have enough people to do the work you have.

        Approves of CEO

        I worked at Ormco full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Good salary with fair bonuses - BUT if you managed a territory with less conventional minded doctors but rather more innovative (pro Damon System) then you could really increase earning potential.

        Cons

        Over promise on product launches AND some product failures. That's the risk when having innovative thinkers at your company and always being first to launch cutting edge technology and products to market.

        Advice to Management

        Leaders should eat last. Do not sacrifice your people for the betterment of the numbers and company. True leaders will sacrifice the numbers for their people.
