    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

  8. Stable, great company, could really benefit from culture updates.

    Pros

    Schein is the market leader and well-respected in the industry. Owns many categories and commands respect from the biggest players. Job prestige is high and culture is extremely traditional. Financially, the company is like a rock and consistently grows stock and market share from year to year. Many "lifers" who have been in the industry forever and love Schein.

    Cons

    A company run by accountants. Financials always look great, but profit squeezing is paramount and most departments are understaffed, positions are rarely backfilled, responsibilities/expectations are huge and they are miserly with raises. Salaries are barely competitive for mid-management positions and internal systems are outdated; budgets and tools to innovate (or even compete professionally) are next to nil. Upward mobility is limited; I did not personally witness many major title promotions from within--although plenty of people fulfilled their manager/subordinate's responsibilities for months or years after the manager/subordinate left.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your people. It's demoralizing to work for a market leader that leads by squeezing profit rather than incentivizing innovation.

  9. The best company ever. Great environment, strong team environment, competitive commission structure, and great benefits.

    Pros

    Henry Schein has a great name in dentistry so as a sales rep you already have some credibility. With a big company comes lots of resources to help you be as successful as possible. Lots of freedom to run your territory and your schedule the way that you want. This freedom, however, isn't always great for everyone. Must be VERY self motivated. Very strong career development program at Henry Schein.

    Cons

    Big company comes with a lot of corporate initiatives and run around. The right hand doesn't seem to always know what the left hand is doing and as a sales rep you are stuck as the face to the problem.
