In addition, this is a company that you can be proud to work for as they truly care about their patients and community and a culture of service is embedded in the values.

    Cons

    Parking can be difficult and the 401k matching could be higher

    I have been working at Pacific Dental Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Mentorship -Encouragement to own your career development -Wellness perks, especially the EAP benefits and mom's programs -the opportunities to volunteer throughout the year. You can even volunteer with the mobile dental clinic as a non-clinician - they'll find something for you to do.

    Cons

    -A few departments can seem isolated from others -Have come across some entitled employees - in honesty, you'll come across people like that anywhere and it's up to you to figure out how to work with people like that. -Onboarding can be a little confusing. You have to call around to find the right person to talk to about enrolling in benefits, for instance.
