    Former Employee - Contract Analyst in Melville, NY (US)
    Former Employee - Contract Analyst in Melville, NY (US)

    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Advancement from within is extremely difficult. Getting more responsibility is easy, getting the salary to match is very difficult.

    Compensation should match industry standards.

    Current Employee - QA Engineer in American Fork, UT (US)

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

    Pros

    Decent Benefits & Pay,
    Decent Work/Life Balance,
    Great place to start and get experience,
    Dentrix is the best product in its industry,
    Great company that seems to care about people,
    Great access to resources & software tools,
    Outstanding stability,
    Pretty much everyone I met there was professional and friendly

    Cons

    Very slow promotion movement,
    Very slow compensation raises,
    Lots of politics & red tape everywhere,
    People are very hard to fire it seems, so it keeps the bad baggage around for a long time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aggressive with hiring/firing/compensation in order to leverage the best talent and keep Dentrix on top. The corporate mentality for Dentrix seemed to be to just go through the motions and "milk it until it dies" instead of nurturing it and raising the bar.

    Field Sales Consultant- Dental

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Henry Schein

    Pros

    top tier training, well known name, you aren't going into any dental office that won't know where your from. great products and services to sell. Given a reasonable base to start and plenty of time on that base. Even though large company(15,000 employees), has small company feel, upper management is extremely visible and willing to listen to anyone. they preach Family first and I learned first hand that they mean it

    Cons

    In my region there was far too many FSC's, seems as though young FSC's are hired in an effort to scrub all the house accounts that dont get called on, they would like you to succeed but you are going to be given garbage accounts that no one wants (near retired, dead, sometimes empty offices)

    Company without a heart

    Current Employee - Analyst-IT Developer in Melville, NY (US)
    Current Employee - Analyst-IT Developer in Melville, NY (US)

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good dental plan.
    Some people are nice.

    Cons

    1. Even it is 12 inch of snow out there, you have to show up to work. That is right. Even USPS does not deliver mail, you are asked to show up at this place.
    2. Management acts like they are open to suggestion, but don't believe it.
    3. If you have a veteran/professional or have years of experience, do not work here. They don't believe you. Management wants to be "scheined".
    4. Clock in and clock out. Are you kidding?
    5. If you are young, don't work here. Many old people here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to say to them. I have tried.
