    Relaxed environment. Some positions filled with very strong people, many other positions filled with very weak people.

    I have been working at Patterson Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pressure from management is minimal
    Flexible hours for salary employees
    PTO is pretty decent
    Laid back culture

    Cons

    Lack of drive from most employees
    Lackluster pay
    Untrained middle management with mediocre to downright bad leadership and people skills
    Company culture and values are not as advertised

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the ins and outs of management. Challenge people more. If someone makes a mistake let them know. Stop promoting people to their level of incompetence...A great technical person may not make the best manager.

    I worked at Patterson Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice work balance, cafe and work out room at corp headquarters.

    Cons

    Lack advancement opportunities. Upper management shuts the door on suggestions for improvments, missing the mark and keeping employee retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the employees that you already have invested time and money on.
