    Great environment with a caring and capable management structure.

    Quality Assurance Engineer (Current Employee) American Fork, UT

    ProsThe company is very stable, and has a great history of moving in a positive direction.

The management structure cares deeply about the success of the company and products as well as the success of individual careers.
    The benefits are very competitive, and the paid time off is very good.

    ConsPay increases are pretty slow in coming.

    Great company to work for.

    Medical Sales Consultant (Current Employee) Melville, NY

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

    ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementCut the dead weight on the sales teams and limit the micro-management.

    Great company, terrible operations in field

    Regional Manager (Current Employee) Melville, NY

    ProsCompany growth at fast pace, primarily via acquisitions

    ConsOperations. 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 Senior ManagementCome 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.

    Technical Support (Tier 1)

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    Distribution Associate

    Distribution Team Member (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsWonderful 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementMentor employees that you feel would be valuable to grow within the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
