I worked at Henry Schein

Pros

It is a Fortune 500 company
It is located in Melville, Long Island, wich is a relatively quiet town
The building is superbly clean and equiped with state-of-the-art facilities

Cons

Office politics is high
The level of hypocrasy is unbelievalbe and even repugnant
Most employees do not know what their position entails, so they don't know what they are doing. They are more inclined to blame other employees behind close door.
Upper management does not clearly state a new employee's performance in order to guide the new employee, but just lets go of the employee

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to the new employee about their performance. State what the Management likes and dislikes about their performance.

Decrease the level of office politics.

Stop being hypocrits. You have power, so be candid with new employees.

Listen to what a new employee has to say to improve business strategy

Do not fire an employee with no explanation

Recommends
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A place you can go and put in your 8 hours and go home and forget about it.

    Cons

    The 8 hours you spend there are unfullfilling, stressful, and unrewarding. You'll never get a promotion without threatening to quit and while you work your tail off to meet todays crisis plus do your day to day tasks the person next to you surfing the net and playing on Facebook will get a promotion because they threatened to quit. The management team doesn't do anything but attend meetings. It's virtually impossible to get information on what you are to be doing and what is going on and upper management's egos and insecurities make it impossible to voice your opinions on tasks without them getting highly defensive.

    Pros

    The commitment to social responsibility is attractive to those who want to join an organization that cares about making a difference in the communities in which it operates.

    Cons

    Senior management seems to reward longevity rather than real competence. I've witnessed those who had the audacity to have a creative thought ushered to the door rather than being recognized for thinking outside the box. The organization is not at all inclusive to newcomers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Those in management roles would do well to recognize talent and creativity rather than sticking to the status quo. Good people are hard to find - stop rewarding incompetence and start rewarding results.
