    Pros

    Nice place, most folks are nice. Management not overbearing or unreasonable, at least thats how i am treated. Spends money on technology, some training. Benefits are pretty good, good 401k match. Lots of people with more than 10 years.

    Cons

    No planning, no project management, while they talk about culture there are loads of personal fiefdoms and a lot of people who don't want to work together. People only want to keep doing things the same way. Even if you offer to collaborate or be part of the design process your input is not welcome, even if you area is part of the project.

    Advice to Management

    Please get some project managers and please make projects follow some kind of PM structure. Very frustrating to be not be assigned part of a project until the last possible minute, especially when there are design decisions. And stop with the Rah Rah meetings. Nobody buys it any more and it would be a lot better to have round-table discussions about upcoming projects or initiatives so people can get into the discussion sooner.

    Pros

    The company itself is great to work for, great health benefits and great for the community.

    Cons

    When there's a problem, certain management isn't willing to listen & help with the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when they come to you for assistance instead of turning your backs or lying to them.

    Pros

    Company has a good culture, decent benefits. They take their time to ensure employees are happy in regards to overall well being.

    Cons

    Unfortunately this doesn't transfer into high pay or promotional opportunities. Doesn't do well promoting persons in house.

    Advice to Management

    More management training opportunities.

    Pros

    Very good benefits. 7% 401K match which is great. Plus medical, dental and vision although employee contribution and co pays keep rising.

    Cons

    Far too many managers and supervisors none of who want to rock their world to address any issues the workers may have. Everything is swept under the rug and if you as a worker question anything you are perceived as negative. Double standards when it comes to the treatment of the workers...more of a do as I say not as I do mentality. No opportunity for advancement. Many dead end jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees when they have an issue. As of now nothing is handled and there are no compromises.

    Pros

    - Good Benefits
    - 401K with match
    - Fair amount of PTO time
    - Gym/Workout space and yoga class
    - In office Café and Market
    If you have a degree in the field you are applying for you could go somewhere within this company. If you have years of experience doing the job you are applying for, you might get the job but you’ll not get any advancement. This company treats it software developing team wonderful, if this is your area apply today! If the job you are applying for is entry level customer support/service job, still an okay job, but if you work there 5 years and try to advance and don’t, find another job because you are stuck were you are at with no chance of moving anywhere within the company.

    Cons

    -Bad interdepartmental communication.

    -Company will always hire degree over experience for any team lead or manager job.

    - Uses the “all other tasks assigned” under job description to load more work on one employee without having to raise their pay except the yearly cost of living raise. This happen at all levels.

    -No Christmas bonus or anything to benefit your family just a Christmas party for employees and spouse, and if you been to one, the rest are the same. Unless you are a manager then you get a nice lunch and movie tickets on top of the lame Christmas party.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are aware of Henry Schein Corporate policies before you make promises to your employees for work or training they already do, and then when it comes time for compensating or raise, you can’t or are not allowed to follow through with it.

    Pros

    Team spirit - everybody is all about helping new comers, and really making sure you get what you're supposed to be doing. Lovely co-workers. Also benefits. And donuts on Fridays :)

    Cons

    The job itself is really stressful. You need to know a LOT, the sales reps can be wonderful or absolutely horrendous, and what you're doing is customer service combined with data entry. Blergh. Charged with enforcing rules that the sales reps constantly try to bend, and often only serve to profit the company.
