I worked at Henry Schein

Pros

Great products, Sales promotions, specials, due to international size of company. Lots of training.

Cons

Watch out! Like to motivate by creating internal competition & chaos. Will not fire due to legal concerns, so will cut draws, split territories, hire new, to push someone out. "Good old boys network" when it comes to mgmt. If you disagree or raise your hand, you are done. Your #'s better be good every qtr, evry yr. Have pushed good people out after many solid yrs. Lots of hidden chargebacks to sales person. If you are going to work here, dot your i's & cross t's because promises never materialize.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop protecting mgmt! Way to many managers! You are not to big to fail. Get back to small company business basics.

    The level of office politics hinders career growth for new employees

    Pros

    It is a Fortune 500 company
    It is located in Melville, Long Island, wich is a relatively quiet town
    The building is superbly clean and equiped with state-of-the-art facilities

    Cons

    Office politics is high
    The level of hypocrasy is unbelievalbe and even repugnant
    Most employees do not know what their position entails, so they don't know what they are doing. They are more inclined to blame other employees behind close door.
    Upper management does not clearly state a new employee's performance in order to guide the new employee, but just lets go of the employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the new employee about their performance. State what the Management likes and dislikes about their performance.

    Decrease the level of office politics.

    Stop being hypocrits. You have power, so be candid with new employees.

    Listen to what a new employee has to say to improve business strategy

    Do not fire an employee with no explanation

    Pros

    A place you can go and put in your 8 hours and go home and forget about it.

    Cons

    The 8 hours you spend there are unfullfilling, stressful, and unrewarding. You'll never get a promotion without threatening to quit and while you work your tail off to meet todays crisis plus do your day to day tasks the person next to you surfing the net and playing on Facebook will get a promotion because they threatened to quit. The management team doesn't do anything but attend meetings. It's virtually impossible to get information on what you are to be doing and what is going on and upper management's egos and insecurities make it impossible to voice your opinions on tasks without them getting highly defensive.
