I worked at Henry Schein

Pros

The work-life balance was great. I usually got time off without a problem when I felt that I needed it. There was often a lot of down-time at work, which could be considered a pro or a con depending on your level of motivation. I got to do a lot of different things and no day was ever the same. Henry Schein is very big on community service, which I think is important. The people were great and we had a lot of fun working together.

Cons

Communication from upper management was inconsistent and contradictory. It was difficult to determine whether you were meeting job requirements or what steps should be taken when improvement was necessary. The office setting could be very unprofessional at times. There were advancement opportunities but only for a select few. The majority of people worked extremely hard, took on aditional duties with no pay increases or title changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Henry Schein is too big for it's own good. Workers have limited flexibility which can hinder progress and success. Encourage and reward workers to think and work outside of the box rather than "rewarding" ingenuity with additional job responsibilities with little or no professional benefit.

    I have been working at Henry Schein

    Pros

    great benefits, company vehicle, steady work

    Cons

    local branch management, is horrible. Most of the management never worked in the field. Never turned a wrench. They have no technical abailty . They cannot relate to the everyday tasks of a tech.They sit behind a desk and dont relate to the outside world, and what it takes to get a job done.
    Dispatch of work is from another state, through nextel's. Dispatch personel are horrible, again $8.00 an hr people with no techncal ability off the street answering phones. It is a nightmare to get things done sometimes...Meetings to schedule the next meeting ....You are a name and a number here.......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    needs to not hire from the outside, needs to promote from within. Branches needs a service manager between techs and management.....Needs more technical people who understand the business in management..
