    Pros

    Very flexible schedule as long as you are hitting your numbers. Opportunity to sell almost anything in the dental field. Can be lucrative if located in the right market.

    Cons

    Increased competition with smaller margins on every item you sell. Lack of opportunities for promotion or growth. Success depends on your territory. No car, no gas allowance, all expenses come out of your pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that not every territory is the same and certain areas of the country are going to struggle.

    I have been working at Henry Schein (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company but feels like a small organization.

    Cons

    Leadership is very, very detached from reality and the rest of the Team Schein family. We understand that the top concern is always the bottom line, but there is an immeasurable amount of issues that need to be addressed, especially in our working infrastructure. There is no emphasis on catching up with the digital age. If you need an example, just take a look at our website. Hilariously, leadership poses the company as a technology company. Technology companies do not make you clock-in and out of work and use a fax machine on a daily basis.

    Very evident that there is no succession planning for our top leaders. If you pay attention, you can see that the company has a very hard time retaining young talent, which makes sense because nothing we do appeals to a digital generation. Generation X and Y leave in droves while people who have been with the company for decades coast because people are valued and rewarded for tenure over what they actually bring to the table. It's discouraging to see this. My advice to those looking to build a career, not just find a job, is to let Henry Schein evolve a little bit more before working here. At this rate, when leadership retires, the company will simply not exist anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. The concerns of the newer Team Schein Members are valid.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees are a great group of people for the most part. TSMs consider each other family. Large company on Long Island.

    Cons

    Low pay for a lot of responsibility. Upper management unconcerned with employees. Inflexible company. No work/life balance. Unwilling to make changes to make employees happier and more satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Be more concerned with treating your employees like people and not just worker bees that contribute to the profit and bottom line. Schein claims to have a fantastic culture, yet most employees are unhappy, underpaid and overworked. Giving employees more flexibility is the future and the way to have a truly happy culture. Denying them these changes and flexibilities is the quickest way to lose good talent and stifle good work ethics.

    I have been working at Henry Schein (More than 8 years)

    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.

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

    Pros

    Company is in recession proof market

    Cons

    Watching huge bonus' in the millions of dollars if not billions while they layoff people in the $30 to $55 range. The give sparingly to charity and create high media profiles for the small contributions to earn the title of Most Admired Company. The CEO is a Rock Star CEO who likes to be on TV and continuously just pushes buttons to make acquisitions, using the money he saved by terminating people that need jobs. Company organic growth is terrible and working environment at a lower level, you get to watch VPs and Directors trying to keep their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job. Even you can get the speech " your job has been eliminated, please remember this is a business, its nothing personal", and remember all the Team crap they shoveled at you so you would work 10 hours a day. The benefits of that are only seen on the third floor.
