    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dependable job, strong company, demand for their products isn't going anywhere.

    Cons

    They talk of the 5 constituents - though I believe all come into play, I think they really favor making the shareholders happy aka corporate america.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the dead weight on the sales teams and limit the micro-management.

    Pros

    Headaches and politics and constant fear of management

    Cons

    You're job is just a leverage tool so management feels good and if you don't play along you will be fired or drivin to quit nobody in upper management will help you and hr is in lockstep.i know this to be true as i am a former victim of shine culture.even though terminated for sticking up for myself when know one else would management once again protected their own and threw me away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the all to comfortable middle management starting with managers and leads.break the cycle of god complex and your workforce will become happier and more productive

    Current Employee - Regional Manager in Melville, NY (US)

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company growth at fast pace, primarily via acquisitions

    Cons

    Operations. In a nutshell, the pay for ops people is low, so they hire very unintelligent people. Ops managers, service techs, it's terrible. Warehouses at centers around the country are filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars of inventory that they let depreciate since no one knows what's going on. Company managers are all addicted to email..... Literally everyday all they do is email. No person to person actual interaction. Management does not work on Fridays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come away from your email and visit the dysfunctional centers which serve your customers and get employees to tell you what's really happening. Listen to them, without checking your email.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time

    Pros

    Always busy but I don't think they do enough to hire people.

    Cons

    Tuition Reimbursement is only available for salary workers and available though not guaranteed for children of TSM (Team Schein Members), just not hourly workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow benefits to be available to all workers, not only those you think who would not use them.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, good pay, plenty of voluntary overtime, excellent culture. I learned a lot about myself and how to perform functions that are valuable and marketable I started out as a temporary, and through the help of tuition assistance, I was able to finish my college education and pursue a career within my degree field.

    Cons

    At times, the pace and pressure is high, and management struggles with skills to balance this pressure and employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mentor employees that you feel would be valuable to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits. I work with really nice people who really care about each other. Pay is ok...salary plus commission...the harder you work...the more you make. The building is clean. Many fun corporate events.

    Cons

    Some promotions are based on who you know rather than what you know. If you know your job well though, you have nothing to worry about. You will eventually get there, just more slowly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I work under a great management team who knows how to motivate and reward you. Unfortunately not all divisions are as fortunate.

    I worked at Henry Schein full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Socially conscious ( except for employees 1-3% yearly raise while doing $12 billion yearly sales)
    - benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    - Other than the standard holidays, no others given (ie Columbus day, Good Friday, veterans day, no Jewish holidays)
    - No clear career advancement plan
    - Constant lays off ( I have seen plenty lifers, 20+ years let go)
    - If your company is bought by Schein.. be prepared for the hammer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more room for personal growth. Show employees that you value them, not just lay off everyone around them and expect a optimistic environment.
