    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Willamette Dental Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Dental benefits were awesome/very affordable.

    Cons

    Administration "lead" was unprofessional, overbearing, condescending, and micromanaged direct reports. The culture at headquarters is very poor/siloed. Thankfully another opportunity elsewhere came up and I resigned from WDG. I do not recommend working here.

    "Stay away"

    1.0
    Former Employee - Practice Manager 

    I worked at Willamette Dental Group full-time

    Pros

    Great staff members and co managers

    Cons

    Senior management. As a dysfunctional family run business they try to keep their audience thinking they have a great company who prides themselves on employer of choice and highly skilled providers. The owner is rude, he over looks the unprofessional, lack of integrity and down right mean senior leader team. His favorite DCO is allowed to act and treat others with disrespect and micro management that drives people away. She will push Drs to do treatment they are not comfortable doing then blame when things go wrong.

    I worked at Willamette Dental Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I can’t think of any. Would never work here again.

    Cons

    Everyone works four ten hour shifts. This seems great but you quickly realize that almost everyone is super tired on there first day off and needs a day to rest. Benefits are nice but very expensive. Long days staring at a screen are terrible for your mental and physical health. Lower management was immature and cliquey. Branch management was disconnected.
