    Pros

    Nothing positive could come from this company.

    Cons

    Micromanaged, commission structure that is impossible to figure out and very disappointing. No matter how hard you work, your commission won't go up. No incentive for improving. No where to move. Systems are extremely out dated and hard to navigate. For ordering some special order items they require experts, these so called "experts" struggle with the ordering system to place the order. some take weeks to go through.

    Pros

    Health benefits. nice facility with air conditioning.

    Cons

    Under average pay, too many politics, and no upper level support when you need it.

    Pay your workers more, and don't judge a situation without sitting down with the parties involved.

    Great TSM's, Horrible "leadership"

    Former Employee - Inbound  in  Sparks, NV (US)
    Former Employee - Inbound in Sparks, NV (US)

    Pros

    The Inbound team members work tirelessly for this company, often without thanks or recognition and frequently without support from the “leadership” or IM group. The “quality” that the customer receives starts with the Inbound team’s hard work. This team deserves better support from local “leadership”, senior management and the IM group.

    Cons

    Originally when I took over the position I felt the biggest challenge would stem from lack of systems and discipline of the team. However, I quickly realized that inflated egos, dirty office politics and administrative incompetence would prove to be bigger obstacles. The total disregard for professionalism, honesty, integrity and values demonstrated by the “leadership” of this Distribution center take away from the positive experiences and cheapens the “Henry Schein Values” that are preached but not followed. These dynamics are not conducive to building a strong team, innovation or productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Change the negative and deceitful “leadership” culture within the DC. Listen to complaints of current and former TSM's and leadership.

    Pros

    hard working people at the D.C. level

    Cons

    Corporate is corrupt and greedy. They create a culture where management is trained to belittle and dehumanize the everyday worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not one person in management cares about anything other than their own salary and bonuses created on the backs, sweat and labor of the employees.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Some people were nice. Some leadership respected you. Unfortunately they were my managers.

    Cons

    Treated people like tools to be used and then discarded when they served their usefulness.

    Unable to see talent, too focused on having an education over work experience.

    Blatant office politics. Stabbed in the back by people you were trying to help.

    If you don`t trust your managers and staff, then it is time to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the new staff, they see everything that the old staff complains about. Have a plan for the future of your business. Stop living day to day.
