Pros: decent compensation, attractive building to work in, opportunities to work cross-functionally, entrepreneurial atmosphere
Cons: horrendous overtime, mistreatment of pregnant and current mothers, management takes credit for work of others
Nobel Biocare is a place where you have good opportunities to work with a variety of departments and on a variety of projects. However, treatment of pregnant employees and working mothers is still in the dark ages. I was terminated once I became pregnant and I've heard many mothers complain about their treatment with the company. Another con is that – more... upper management has no qualms about taking your projects, criticizing them and then presenting them as their own at a later date. Almost all of my department has quit in the last year and all echo a strong dissatisfaction with the company culture.
My advice to the company is to focus on the employees. The retention rate is terrible. Once the company addresses employee issues, I believe external success with customers will follow and Nobel Biocare may one day regain its title as the world leader in dental implants. – less
