    I worked at Henry Schein full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Henry Schein is a good company offering great products. It is large and their are lots of opportunities for growth. Benefits used to be 100% paid but now we have to pay more of the premium, although it is still good compared to other companies. Management in support was personable and willing to train.

    Cons

    HR Director is not approachable however other HR staff was very helpful. Lots of company politics as with most large companies. Having the CEO parade through the building while visiting. Everyone was expected to stand outside their cubicles and greet as if it were the Queen of England. Seemed very historical or hysterical...either one.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure management and leaders have the necessary skills and training when hired or promoted to a position.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company culture is wonderful and the people have a high level of integrity. HS continues striving to get better everyday.

    Cons

    There's very little racial diversity in leadership. Very few people of color in high level positions. If you're white, male, connected with the right people, you have a chance at growing professionally and financially.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a career pathway that includes all races and backgrounds. Identify those with the leadership skills needed to succeed and mentor them along by advancing their careers. It is 2019 after all and not the 1950's.

    Pros

    freedom to make your own schedule and time management

    Cons

    Insane yearly budget goal increases. Yearly commission rate decreases. No expense account for car, gas, phone, internet, food or travel. No sample account

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that every territory has very different circumstances and corporate rollouts will never succeed. Incentivize reps to keep them motivated and proud to work for Schein.
