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.

    I worked at Henry Schein

    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

    I have been working at Henry Schein

    Pros

    The only Pro to Henry Schein are the healthcare benefits....other than that...NOTHING!

    Cons

    Although Henry Schein has grown on the Fortune 500 list over the past 4 years..it is at the expense of their employees and even sales people.
    The company is only concerned with growth at any expense. They do not care about employees or turnover. They are masters at creating internal competiton among their sales people as well.
    The Zone Technology Managers that should be helping you sell more are only there to send you a monthly score card of where you are in sales. They think that sales should be closed equally over a 12 month calendar year..hello? has any one ever heard of sales cycles?

    Their plan is to hire as many field reps as possible with no set territory and let everyone fight for sales amongst themselves. Don't even get started on E4D....management thinks that pounding on the DTS's will bring E4D sales...when they have not given any quota to the FSC's!! How stupid is that

    Now they charge the sales people when a doctor uses a credit card! That is just pathetic...Talk about nickle and diming the sales people to death.

    The first opportunity I get to work for a competitior to Schein ....you better believe I am going to do it...

    DON'T WORK FOR THIS COMPANY !!!! YOU WILL LIVE TO REGRET IT!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to grow at any cost...and revise your "Team Schein" motto because it is a complete and utter insult!
