    Henry Schein as a company cares about their employees and is fair in their compensation and benefits.

    Market Research Analyst (Former Employee)
    American Fork, UT

    ProsHenry Schein is a strong company that offers an appealing package of benefits to its employees. The people I worked with were also reasonable in their expectations not over working or burning out the employees.

    ConsThe company is big and has a corporate environment so some things are slow moving and there is sometimes excessive red tape and hoops to jump through to get things done. There is also a certain amount of politics involved with moving up in the ranks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow some divisions some autonomy to call the shots on things they want to do to help the customer and explore new ideas.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Solid company, great experience, highly recommended company.

    (Former Employee)

    ProsI had a good experience with Schein. They keep a small company feel to a huge organization which is not easily or typically done with most Fortune 500 companies. Great training program in West Allis, Wisconsin.

    ConsStarting with a scratch territory can be rough for the first year or so, but through persistence and pressure, good things tend to happen somehow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up, they run a great company very effectively.

    Distribution Associate

    Distribution Team Member (Current Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsWonderful benefits, good pay, plenty of voluntary overtime, excellent culture. I learned a lot about myself and how to perform functions that are valuable and marketable I started out as a temporary, and through the help of tuition assistance, I was able to finish my college education and pursue a career within my degree field.

    ConsAt times, the pace and pressure is high, and management struggles with skills to balance this pressure and employee morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMentor employees that you feel would be valuable to grow within the company.

    Great company to work for.

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits. I work with really nice people who really care about each other. Pay is ok...salary plus commission...the harder you work...the more you make. The building is clean. Many fun corporate events.

    ConsSome promotions are based on who you know rather than what you know. If you know your job well though, you have nothing to worry about. You will eventually get there, just more slowly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI work under a great management team who knows how to motivate and reward you. Unfortunately not all divisions are as fortunate.
