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.

    I have been working at Patterson Companies

    Pros

    Patterson has a fresh, professional and respectful business culture, is very process oriented and extremely democractic. Work is challenging yet I rarely work over 40 hours a week as the company honors the needed balance between work and personal life.

    Cons

    Advancement is flat, recently our team had two promotions to management without the jobs ever being available for applying within. Employee retention, at least on the analyst team, is quite poor. We've had up to 8 members leave within the past year and a half, mostly due to boredom with the type of work, salary or benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take a serious look at the extreme lack of advancement opportunities in the IT organization as well as focus on employee retention.

    I worked at Patterson Companies

    Pros

    Good Salary & Comission Package. Management at the district level was fair and worked well as a team. Nice people overall.

    Cons

    Poor communication between Senior and Mid Level Management. Led to finger pointing and poor experience of how a workplace should function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be quicker to make decisions and not pawn off responsibilities to others to wash your hands clean of the situation.
