    Pros

    There are great people top to bottom, great benefits, solid industry, conservative company.

    Cons

    Advancement from within is extremely difficult. Getting more responsibility is easy, getting the salary to match is very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation should match industry standards.

    Current Employee - QA Engineer in American Fork, UT

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent Benefits & Pay,
    Decent Work/Life Balance,
    Great place to start and get experience,
    Dentrix is the best product in its industry,
    Great company that seems to care about people,
    Great access to resources & software tools,
    Outstanding stability,
    Pretty much everyone I met there was professional and friendly

    Cons

    Very slow promotion movement,
    Very slow compensation raises,
    Lots of politics & red tape everywhere,
    People are very hard to fire it seems, so it keeps the bad baggage around for a long time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aggressive with hiring/firing/compensation in order to leverage the best talent and keep Dentrix on top. The corporate mentality for Dentrix seemed to be to just go through the motions and "milk it until it dies" instead of nurturing it and raising the bar.

    Strong company to work for. If you make it through the first 3 years, you could retire there.

    I worked at Henry Schein

    Pros

    You manage your own territory. If you are above $1.5 million in sales they usually leave you alone so you can grow your territory. Dental sales takes 1.5-3 years before you start to really grow. It all has to do with relationships with the dentist and their staff. It's good to have a big company that has a great training. Henry Schein's training and continuing ed program is top notch. Only reason I left was to go back to school to be a dentist or would have been a lifer.

    Cons

    Depending on the regional manager or zone manager you get, it could make your job great or more difficult.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I rarely have to work more then 40 hours a week and get paid well for my position and years of experience. I really enjoy the people I work with, but like with anywhere your experience definitely depends on your manager and director. Stress level is relatively low most of the time although it kicks up during the times when our department is most busy. We get lunch bought by the company a good amount which is nice when you are super busy.

    Cons

    I wish I got the opportunity to travel a little whether it would be to satellite offices or to go to seminars/conventions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the amount of money allocated to tuition reimbursement.
