    Pros

    Very nice people are employed there. People have been there for the majority of their careers and are very dedicated to the company. The company supports charities, and does make a good effort to boost moral - theme parties, birthday/condolence cards, etc.

    Cons

    I’ve worked in fast pace environments, and every member was an important piece of the puzzle. I felt management was condescending. So, I found working at the company unrewarding both personally and financially.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent. Treat employees like responsible adults.

  3. Salary was nice but an incredible amount of work with very little support

    Pros

    Nice Salary
    Ability to work semi flexible hours and occasionally from home
    Learn how to essentially run your own business
    Interesting and growing field
    Some coworkers were a joy to work with
    you learned many different skills as the job could be dynamic and challenging

    Cons

    long work week and always on call - at least starting out - I worked super late often and several hours on plenty of Sundays
    Management was not very helpful. Would only tell you what you did wrong and didnt have any suggestions on how to improve. Simple things could often takes weeks for approval.
    Some coworkers and team members were horrible to work with and beyond incompetent. They would leave you totally screwed when they were weeks behind with scheduling etc and your client was growing more and more impatient
    The company still expected you to sell sell sell even when they couldnt deliver on a product and it was constantly failing to work properly

    Advice to Management

    Give new employees a sheet on how to best manage their time - 20% cold calling 20% ride alongs etc
    Help employees grow. This does not mean telling them they are doing a terrible job while offering no actual advice.
    Stop over promising. Nevo did not work like it should have and being 7 + months behind for upgrades was disgraceful

    Pros

    Pros include working for a well-established brand known by health care professionals, a Fortune 300 industry leader, competitive benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    Cons include old school environment (workplace is 80's style and hasn't been updated) and corporate mentality is Theory X with regard to workplace behavior. Some managers exhibit bullying, coercive mannerisms..

    Advice to Management

    Avoid Lip Service and practice corporate responsibility a bit better with regard to employees. Focus more on the people and less on the beans.

    Pros

    Good experience in your 20's, very stable industries aligned with global macro healthcare trends. Tons of cash, good 401k plan match, and generally a pleasant place to work with some real nice people. Schein is a place where there are not a lot of the typical "jerks" that you find in other companies. Not high stress, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Salaries are very under market for Long Island, and all LI companies know Schein sucks for comp. It's a recruiters dream to poach good talent! If you are young, come in and do 2-3 years AT MAX otherwise you will be digging out of the salary gap for the rest of your career. Schein is a Sales & Marketing company run entirely by CPA's and finance geeks - if you're in Marketing Strategy you will be amazed there's not one single executive with any proven Marketing accomplishments. They hoard cash, make acquisitions, and cut expenses to show profit. If you're a VP - welcome to the good life! This company is so overweight on VP's and Directors. Most companies axe VP's when performance sucks, but Schein? Nope, you're golden for life! Instead, they squeeze the lower levels with crappy raises and under-market salaries. The 3rd floor is a boys club with the same few people in Stan's inner circle moving up each year. They have a wake up call coming with Amazon coming into the dental market - the boys on the 3rd floor aren't gonna like it when they see what it's like to make 10 points on everything!

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the useless droves of VP's and your employees will respect you a lot more. In a sales and marketing company, create a culture where you can actually use a bathroom without hitting a CPA. Be ready for Amazon, it's gonna hurt!

    Pros

    Company growth at fast pace, primarily via acquisitions

    Cons

    Operations. 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 Management

    Come 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.

    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 Management

    Allow more room for personal growth. Show employees that you value them, not just lay off everyone around them and expect a optimistic environment.
