    Pros

    PDS is a great place to work! Everyone is very friendly and genuinely wants to see you succeed. The company is extremely ambitious and expects the same out of their employees, which fosters a great work ethic. There are a lot of opportunities to learn and they give you a clear path to see where you can grow within the company. If you want to be around hard-working, fun, and all-around great people, this is the place... for you!

    I have been working at Pacific Dental Services full-time

    Pros

    The hiring process was very simple and straight forward. The office is very modern with lots of natural light and business casual. From the interview process to my first few months on the job everyone has been very friendly, personable, and professionally courteous. PDS is looking for good talent and are willing to take care of their people so there are lots of opportunities. There is also a culture of excellence... and a positive vibe here every day. People will try to get to your name very quickly too so, again, it is very warm and friendly.

    Cons

    Parking is very limited so if visitor parking is taken, make sure you park on the street because you will get a warning if you park without a pass. I think you can also walk into the front office and get a guest pass but that would mean you have to park with your hazards on and come back.

    Pros

    -Mentorship -Encouragement to own your career development -Wellness perks, especially the EAP benefits and mom's programs -the opportunities to volunteer throughout the year. You can even volunteer with the mobile dental clinic as a non-clinician - they'll find something for you to do.

    Cons

    -A few departments can seem isolated from others -Have come across some entitled employees - in honesty, you'll come across people like that anywhere and it's up to you to figure out how to work with people like that. -Onboarding can be a little confusing. You have to call around to find the right person to talk to about enrolling in benefits, for instance.

    Advice to Management

    -Quarterly team building events and more check-ins may help boost morale for those in departments who feel overwhelmed or under appreciated.
