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

    Pros

    Its a nice place to work and the people are pleasant. The benefits are pretty decent although like most places, you pay more and more for health coverage, and less and less is covered.

    Cons

    The starting salaries aren't very high, and you will have a hard time getting an increase.

    I have been working at Henry Schein

    Pros

    The people I work with each day are the reason I keep coming back for more. The benefits cannot be beaten and when the economy turns around you can't beat the company.

    Cons

    With the economy in the toilet eveyone is feeling the pinch. It is sometimes an uncomfortable position to be in but I think that's the same everywhere right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that sales people are the driving force of the business.
