    Pros

    Outstanding Benefits, Dental offices provide you w/job opportunities if you ever leave the company, get experience in dentistry.

    Cons

    Cost of leaving rises, All Insurances costs rise Job duties added to you..etc....No Raise in 4 years but Management gave themselves a raise 😠 every year.

    Advice to Management

    Before Management gives themselves raises, golf tournaments, lavish trips, sales representatives included, PLEASE give the above material things up, go hands on only doing the job of either a Customer Service Rep, Scheduler or a Technician for no less than 2mos consecutive days every year for 4yrs at that Dept pay, hours & during the industries bestest time of year. Then just MAYBE it will help you all understand that your job & salaries are because of the employee that actually sits there everyday & keeps the customers happy & buying. Bonuses, company picnics w/invited family members & company holiday dinners w/invited spouses all don't happen anymore because of selfish deep pockets. The 2 words that are a rarity in the dental industries is, "Thank You." Not to just the customers but to those of us that have the personal relationships w/the customers that in the end pay all of our salaries. Keep Smiling!!

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    A very diverse culture and the opportunity to learn from so many different backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures. A close team with great comradery. Opportunities for travel and advancement.

    Cons

    It can be very long hours for administration/management positions. Difficult work/personal balance. Logistics is still a "good ole boy" division of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Always remain fair and consistent. This is across the board, from hours expected, pay, promotions, disciplinary, to praises. It can be confusing sometimes.
