    I worked at Ormco full-time (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 (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 treat your own employees like an outside competitor. This company is in shambles because all of the smart, driven, and actually talented people hate it and leave as soon as they can.
    Oh and also: maybe stop promoting managers that have MULTIPLE lawsuits against them from former employees for stress damages.

    Work as a team and create some mutual goals.

    I worked at Ormco full-time (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, you might wind up with a second or third role the following year.

    Advice to Management

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

    I worked at Ormco full-time (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.

    Pros

    Great industry and lots of potential. Close relationships with the customer. high margin business.

    Cons

    Danaher has raped this company to the bones with operations dominance and penny pinching. Little to no interest in long term R&D. Who you know is more valuable than what you know. If you worship Danaher, you will succeed. Otherwise you will be ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Give Danaher the middle finger and tell them to stop driving their DBS garbage down everyone's throat.
