    I have been working at Septodont full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Company! Management is very helpful and great team of people to work with. Well known products = easy sell!

    Cons

    In a sense you are competing against your own company with certain products. Hard to grow anesthetic business when their are so many options that the suppliers offer

    Advice to Management

    Lower cost of Products to compete against dealer private label.

    I worked at Septodont full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Established, growing company with nice, down to earth co- workers.

    Cons

    Becoming very corporate. Must wear many hats. Only receive a small "cost of living raise", each year. Tends to be favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Remember you're nothing without your employees. They're people, not robots. Show your appreciation like the company used to. I know I used to consider it my home away from home. My second family, until I just became another number...

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

    Pros

    can't really think of any pros

    Cons

    This place is a mess. They manage based on glassdoor reviews. Aside from the the rather puerile approach to management, the company is falls way short of cGMP compliance. Worse, they do not seem to believe that their systems are, at best, spotty. Any suggestion to remedy the situation is met with open hostility. In short, I left because I did not want my name associated with any records that would be reviewed by...

    Advice to Management

    Not sure where to begin here. This is a top-down organization where ONLY one or two people can effect any change. As such they are unlikely to accept any suggestion. They know all, and god help you if you disagree.

    I have been working at Septodont full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation are decent for support groups, not hourly employees. The company is expanding their portfolio which means additional revenue.

    Cons

    This a horrible environment. The key people that are supposed to promote a healthy environment are the first to violate policies. The company in itself is headed in the right direction. Unfortunately the people that are leading it, need to be replaced. The turnover is so high you wonder how successful this company will be when everyone keeps leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place people that understand Colorado laws and will uphold them, additionally someone who will change the culture so people want to stay!

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

    Pros

    Health insurance is better than most. Office positions' compensation are competitive. One week paid vacation earned quicker than other companies.

    Cons

    Speaking for Louisville, CO site: Production supervisors and leads tend to talk down to operators. No growth opportunities even though tuition reimbursement is offered. No recognition for job well done--ever. Louisville sight can't seem to get out of the 20th century. Boys club! Old policies! Old manufacturing equipment breaks drown or causes issues. Don't take the job without a full tour! Clear separation between...

    Advice to Management

    Positve reinforcement goes along way! Nuture an environment of inclusivity and acceptance. Give longevity incentive pay to keep great employees. Don't punish employees for asking questions or raising concerns. Make the open door policy an actual open door policy. Work with operators to address the issues on the floor and ask questions to get the full picture. Don't make assumptions. Reward the various generations...

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

    Pros

    Great company with positive leaders with clear vision. Septodont focuses on employee's development and growth. Great compensation in the market.

    Cons

    Vacation policy can be improved. Vacation entitlement goes with seniority so newly hires gets only two weeks vacation no matter how much experience they carry.

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

    Pros

    Pay is below average Benefits are average

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of leadership. Facility went under construction without a definitive plan in place and management cannot understand why we are running behind schedule. Communication has always been awful but somehow has gotten worse....departments have issues and not one person thinks that it would be helpful to share this information with other departments. No advancement opportunities within the Louisville site.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be leaders, you want a quality team you need to be quality leaders. You should be asking, why have so many employees resigned in the past two years!
