    I worked at Henry Schein full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    No strees. Easy atmosphere friendly

    Cons

    Low low pay, no motivation because so few actually care about making money. Why do your best when noone else even attempts. Great place to vegitate for 20 years. Why did I waste 10 years here
    ?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable and reward those who do a good job with a salary in line with your counterparts. Stan needs to get head out of sand and see what truly goes on.

    Pros

    pleasant co-workers,
    well grounded management,
    Quality benefits,
    Low turn over rate - you get to know your co-workers and will probably keep working with them.

    Cons

    Low turn over rate - difficult to advance,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May employees that start at the lower rungs leave because there is no/little movement within the company. Either make changing to a different division a better option or say that in the hiring process.

    Great company with great people. Have been there for almost 5 years now and really have got a chance to work with and meet a lot of wonderful people.
    Great Career Development learning more about the business than just products.

    Cons

    Starting out is going to be a challenge unless you are taking over better accounts.
    Selling the same things as everyone else but for a higher price.
    Good ole boy system depends on location and how high you are wanting to go.

    Pros

    Nothing positive could come from this company.

    Cons

    Micromanaged, commission structure that is impossible to figure out and very disappointing. No matter how hard you work, your commission won't go up. No incentive for improving. No where to move. Systems are extremely out dated and hard to navigate. For ordering some special order items they require experts, these so called "experts" struggle with the ordering system to place the order. some take weeks to go through.

    Great TSM's, Horrible "leadership"

    Former Employee - Inbound in Sparks, NV
    Former Employee - Inbound in Sparks, NV

    I worked at Henry Schein full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Inbound team members work tirelessly for this company, often without thanks or recognition and frequently without support from the “leadership” or IM group. The “quality” that the customer receives starts with the Inbound team’s hard work. This team deserves better support from local “leadership”, senior management and the IM group.

    Cons

    Originally when I took over the position I felt the biggest challenge would stem from lack of systems and discipline of the team. However, I quickly realized that inflated egos, dirty office politics and administrative incompetence would prove to be bigger obstacles. The total disregard for professionalism, honesty, integrity and values demonstrated by the “leadership” of this Distribution center take away from the positive experiences and cheapens the “Henry Schein Values” that are preached but not followed. These dynamics are not conducive to building a strong team, innovation or productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Change the negative and deceitful “leadership” culture within the DC. Listen to complaints of current and former TSM's and leadership.
