I worked at Henry Schein full-time

Pros

Family atmosphere amongst the worker bees.

Cons

Provide their sales teams with old outdated equipment and software programs. Getting adequate equipment to perform the job is like pulling teeth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop pointing the finger and show some appreciation to the employees who actually interface with the customers.

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time

    Pros

    Good work and atonomy if you have good numbers. Flexibility in how to gain business. Significant training opportunities. Some of the management is very talented. Fortune 500 strength. Opportunity is there to make acceptable money.

    Cons

    Cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap! I don't know how the company gets away with not paying for any expenses, especially in CA where employment law dictates that employees shall not suffer a loss for either the cost of doing business or expenses incurred as a usual or required part of performing your job. We have to take doctors to lunch, drive all day long, home office et al. None of these are reimbursed. Charge backs on commission for things that would commonly be done as a cost of doing business. Chargebacks can and do sometimes exceed the commission earned. To add insult to injury, if a fee is waived for a customer, legitimate or not, that is simply added to the commission deduction. What starts out as $120,000 gets chissled down to about $100,000 from chargebacks then unreimbursed business expenses will chisle that down to about $70,000. Benefits are expensive, have high deductables and have high out of pocket expenses at the doctors office. Between payroll deductions, co-pays, and out of pocket expenses, expect medical and prescription expenses for a family to be between $3,000 and $8,000 a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reimburse expenses before a class action comes and makes it happen. Have an honest and straight forward compensation plan that only charges back for returned product.

    I worked at Henry Schein full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stable employment. Great 401 match.

    Cons

    Management is undereducated
    The whole company operates in a silo. Too many upper management "grew up" at Henry Schein. They really need fresh faces from other industries and more ideas.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
