Career stagnation and poor leadership
Corporate office (Former Employee) – Mendota Heights, MN – August 24, 2017
Patterson can be a difficult place to go to every day, especially if you have career growth goals. Few departments have good tracks for development or advancement, unless you're part of the boys club and came from the sales field. Then you're qualified to be a VP, apparently. Compensation is not competitive in many areas, and the benefits don't make up for that.
Corporate office is a stressful environment and the work isn't appreciated. We drag the org. and the bottom line down, or at least that's the sentiment some leaders have expressed.
Patterson's ok for a couple of years if you need a stepping stone to something else.
free parking, good location
non-competitive compensation, no remote work policy, high stress
