    I have been working at Patterson Dental full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You have some say over the accounts you want to keep Benefits are good Work life balance is better than many sales positions

    Cons

    ESOP is abysmal compared to what it once was The company lacks direction. Its foray into medical (PT) was ill advised and poorly timed. The leadership cannot seem to get the company back on track. Stock performance has under-performed relative to similar companies

    Advice to Management

    Time to bring in some outside leadership. Current leadership seems to resemble a mutual admiration society- others liken it to an "old boys club".Time to seriously curtail the stock options awarded to the leadership that has failed to deliver growth. Glad you realized exclusivity is an albatross.

    Pros

    Enjoyable market to sell to. Company has a strong reputation in industry. Flexible hours for good work life balance. Not much else

    Cons

    Horrible management. Antiquated use of technology, corporate strategy losing out to competitors. Favoritism is a strong factor in personal growth. Low pay, no 401k matching, healthcare costs higher than average for employees,

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites and don't rely on one partner to drive business
