    I worked at Henry Schein full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture, the culture at Schein is truly like a very large family. Often you find people working with others just to improve the culture and life of those around them.

    Cons

    Management can be reluctant to adapt to new changes or systems.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I answer to 3 individuals who are all excellent to work for. I love every level of management I have had to work with and I have never felt mistreated or taken advantage of.

    Cons

    People do not know how good we have it at this company. People are constantly complaining about things the company is doing for us for FREE. This is not a con to the company, just a con of people being ungrateful. I don't get it.

    Bonuses and raises are not large enough to get excited about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To remain industry competitive you need to be willing to restructure a department based on their actual workflow and adjust salaries accordingly. I am doing a job I feel is critical to the success of our division and because my job title is incorrect I have no room to negotiate my salar.

    I have been working at Henry Schein as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to improve your skills and advance in your field

    Cons

    There needs to be more benefits offered for loyalty and retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look closer at those willing to work hard and want to stay with the company, not just at those who say what they want to hear.

    I worked at Henry Schein full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Henry Schein is a strong company that offers an appealing package of benefits to its employees. The people I worked with were also reasonable in their expectations not over working or burning out the employees.

    Cons

    The company is big and has a corporate environment so some things are slow moving and there is sometimes excessive red tape and hoops to jump through to get things done. There is also a certain amount of politics involved with moving up in the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow some divisions some autonomy to call the shots on things they want to do to help the customer and explore new ideas.

    I worked at Henry Schein

    Pros

    I had a good experience with Schein. They keep a small company feel to a huge organization which is not easily or typically done with most Fortune 500 companies. Great training program in West Allis, Wisconsin.

    Cons

    Starting with a scratch territory can be rough for the first year or so, but through persistence and pressure, good things tend to happen somehow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, they run a great company very effectively.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time for 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.
