    Pros

    Compensation is slightly average of the market
    Medical insurance and free English courses

    Cons

    Very strange promotion schemes
    You have to convince your manager that you need some benefit which was described in HR advertisements(it's all about language courses, company laptops, possibility to work from home, etc)
    The company hires a lot of developers, but not QA, quality coverage and testing are in a very poor state.
    Very hard economy and hiring freezes when stocks fall
    Many talented developers left the company
    A lot of bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Management should manage people, not arguing with developers and QA and change the requirements online, because it wants to
    People is the most important that you have.

    "Fun sell, mgmt are bullies & TMs don’t make $ like they used to"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    As a TM, there’s no cold calling. The product is a money maker for general dentists. Orthos know it’s the future but are hesitant. It’s a really fun sell

    Cons

    - Corporate each year changes comp plan to make it harder and more complicated to make commission. Your doing well if your hitting 90% to plan. Potential to make money like it used to be is near impossible. They are hiring more to face competition and paying less.
    - Regional mgmt is terrible. Bully type methods with lack of experience, no coaching experience and no general business acumen.
    - Expecting more and more for less, trying to push out higher paid experienced TMs out for cheaper labor
    - Advancement opps always go to outside candidates with no experience
    - Competition is coming out hard, fast and cheap

    Advice to Management

    - Go back to the way employees were treated and managed 5+ years ago and listen to employees complaints about managers
