    I worked at Henry Schein full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Henry 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    All the members in Internal Audit Department are very nice persons. They are more like friends and teachers to me. We always have lunch together and have fun in bar sometime.

    Cons

    Some of the works are really hard to a student.

    Pros

    The company is very stable, and has a great history of moving in a positive direction. They do a great job of making sure new employees are a good cultural fit as well as very capable in their respective areas of expertise. The management structure cares deeply about the success of the company and products as well as the success of individual careers.
    The benefits are very competitive, and the paid time off is very good.

    Cons

    Pay increases are pretty slow in coming.

    Pros

    Fairly good training and good benefits.

    Cons

    Manager does not step up to bat when you need time off for something. They let you duke it out with dispatch.
    When you are given time off for an appointment they will send you 2 hours away so you can be late and miss your appointment.

    Pros

    Headaches and politics and constant fear of management

    Cons

    You're job is just a leverage tool so management feels good and if you don't play along you will be fired or drivin to quit nobody in upper management will help you and hr is in lockstep.i know this to be true as i am a former victim of shine culture.even though terminated for sticking up for myself when know one else would management once again protected their own and threw me away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the all to comfortable middle management starting with managers and leads.break the cycle of god complex and your workforce will become happier and more productive

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company growth at fast pace, primarily via acquisitions

    Cons

    Operations. In a nutshell, the pay for ops people is low, so they hire very unintelligent people. Ops managers, service techs, it's terrible. Warehouses at centers around the country are filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars of inventory that they let depreciate since no one knows what's going on. Company managers are all addicted to email..... Literally everyday all they do is email. No person to person actual interaction. Management does not work on Fridays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come away from your email and visit the dysfunctional centers which serve your customers and get employees to tell you what's really happening. Listen to them, without checking your email.

    Pros

    Always busy but I don't think they do enough to hire people.

    Cons

    Tuition Reimbursement is only available for salary workers and available though not guaranteed for children of TSM (Team Schein Members), just not hourly workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow benefits to be available to all workers, not only those you think who would not use them.

    I worked at Henry Schein

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Starting 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, they run a great company very effectively.
