    Pros

    Managers are good people who actually care versus the usual cut-throat execs of other large companies. Employees are friendly, intelligent and in it for the long haul. You can pretty much chart your own course and pick what team you want to go to.

    Cons

    Limited health benefits, moderate pay just on the edge of good enough but some great people leave due to salary limitations. While success is applauded it can sometimes take a while to move up a level in your field.

    Advice to Management

    Be slightly more generous on raises and people will be able to ride out the difficult parts of life a little easier and stay with a company they care about. Job titles are at least one rung lower than they are in comparable companies.

  5. A warehouse where striving to be the best is frowned upon

    Pros

    The staff they do employ have a bond with one and other which is positive and is one of the main benefits of working within the warehouse

    Cons

    Poor communication between higher members of staff and warehouse employees. Occasionally felt like a drone atmosphere where if any employee was to ask questions or aim for something higher, they were shot down and replaced by another young employee willing to work for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to offer more benefits to your employees especially the ones working unsociable backshift hours as they appear to go completely unappreciated.

  6. Decent place

    Pros

    Easy work environment. No pressure from looming deadlines (at least in my department). Everything gets done in its own time. Friendly people.

    Nice benefits package - Dental, Medical, Vision, 401k

    Paid time off is offered and is standard for most corporations of this size.

    They do a lot of theme days, company 5k runs, charity events. Lots of ways to give back to the community.

    Cons

    Leadership is non-existent. No one takes responsibility or tries to lead their staff to new levels of personal and career growth. There's no room to grow b/c everyone in management has been here for 15+ years and is never leaving their pointless cushy job. It's pretty much you do what you're assigned until we ask you to do more....which brings me to....

    Their lame attempt to promote career growth and satisfaction: MBO's. These are "goals" you are to reach throughout the year to justify your raise and/or bonus.

    Each MBO ends up being a cleverly worded and exaggerated statement of what you already do. Because no one in their right mind want's to take on more work if they're not getting the salary to compensate.

    For all the talk about how Henry Schein cares about people, they seem to only care about other people outside of the company. We never close early when it's bad weather. Even if it's a blizzard!

    Day after Christmas? when half the country is off work?....you better believe we're open!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight and employees who don't want to learn and progress. Trim down departments and offer individuals the chance to take on more responsibility with proper compensation.

    Pros

    flexible work schedule, no one to watch over your shoulder, great company as a whole, training every year for refresher...lots of products to sell which can also be a com

    Cons

    As a rookie you get a scratch territory and it take a while to build your business. They do not pay for your phone, internet or any other expenses you incur as you try an build your business. Too many products to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Give the rookies actual accounts that will help them be successful...pay for phone and internet

    Pros

    The people (not necessarily senior leadership), the location, the global scale, Fortune 300, HSC, philanthropy

    Cons

    Salary, Little/no work-life balance, older senior leadership, culture stuck in small company mentality despite massive growth, little appreciation for younger generations and their ideas/ knowledge

    Advice to Management

    Promote opportunities for younger leaders in the company, encourage management to provide promotional opportunities, increase salaries to encourage younger generation to stay at the company longer, more visibility of upper management with lower level staff.

    Pros

    get to work with fun people. The benefits are great

    Cons

    if you don't pass their tests (which are poorly written and self contradictory) You can forget about getting a raise whether it's a year review or not

    Advice to Management

    look at a person's performance and see if they deserve a raise not if they can't pass a test where all questions are things that are part of the job description anyway
