    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Henry Schein part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have had a very nice experience. All information I have received from management and co-workers has been positive and accurate. Everyone works together well at the location I'm part of.

    Cons

    I would like a full-time position. I do get offered some extra hours on weekends and to cover other shifts for vacations and time off.

    Pros

    You can run your own show.

    Cons

    Comp could be higher. Your potential for earning and your lifestyle is largely dependent on your location/manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Podium speaker. Uncap the comp plan.

    I worked at Henry Schein full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Software Support Department (HSPS) is a great environment. It felt very much like a family they ALWAYS go above and beyond to make sure you feel appreciated. The best job I ever had, to bad I had to move to another state.

    Cons

    There is the normal separation between software support and development. Sometimes things are released before enough testing and notification to support is given. Also, the great environment is probably the reason why they have such a high retention rate. But, the pay rate is very low when compared to similar positions with other companies. They start at about $11.50 per hour. This was about a $4 dollar pay cut when I started that I could never do now. But I eventually got to $18 per hour. But, that rate is limited to a small team of people, $16 to $17 per hour is very possible within 3 years if you diligently apply yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you increase the starting pay and the following pay rates by at least $1.50 to $2.00 I believe you will have a chance at an even more experienced work force and retention rate. The cost of living has dramatically increased since $11.50 was first introduced. Also, when I left I wasn't allowed to work from home unless I went back to a Tech 3 at about $4 less per hour for the same amount of work and experience. If that could be resolved for the next person in my position you will have a better chance of keeping your most experienced technicians. When you consider a tech that has made it to Tech 4 and above like myself I know they aren't easy replaceable and worth every dollar, even if they have to be managed remotely.

    Outside of those two things. The company is fantastic, I saw a lot of changes and they were almost always for the better!

    Pros

    The company is very stable, and has a great history of moving in a positive direction. They do a great job of making sure new employees are a good cultural fit as well as very capable in their respective areas of expertise. 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.

    Cons

    Pay increases are pretty slow in coming.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Cut the dead weight on the sales teams and limit the micro-management.
