I have been working at Henry Schein full-time

Pros

Good life and work balance

Cons

Managers have no experience in management, territories are soft so you have to fight over accounts with other reps either outside or tele. Management does not follow through with plans, throw you out to the wolves when you are hired. Poor training program. Your voice is not heard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire managers that know the products their reps are selling, managers should know how to manage their team and be supportive, as well as know the sales process and key decision makers that reps should turn to in certain situations.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a job right now. If you need a stepping stone to a better job this may be a place to get your feet wet.

    Cons

    Chicago Management is terrible! The manager here has no medical experience so do not expect to learn anything or get support from him while working here. Inability to mentor, does not return phone calls or follow up on leads you may want to pursue. Quick to hang his sales force out to dry to protect a job he has no reason being in, does not communicate well with customers and has been asked by customers to not come back. Sales force is not sure what he does as he does not support them in the field. Midwest manager who is his boss is not much better as he will cover for this infidel to save his own job! This will not get better until the Midwest manager and Sales Manager are gone. Rumors are HS Chicago used to be on top and sales were good; well, at least 15 people have left in the past 5 years, mostly seasoned experienced reps. You do the math!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should take off the blunders and see the writing on the wall . Hire someone in Chicago who can mentor, teach, support, encourage and develop reps like they are supposed to be. Nobody respects the current management here as they are incompetent!

    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    Provide their sales teams with old outdated equipment and software programs.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
