    I have been working at Henry Schein as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to improve your skills and advance in your field

    Cons

    There needs to be more benefits offered for loyalty and retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look closer at those willing to work hard and want to stay with the company, not just at those who say what they want to hear.

    Pros

    PTO, well used to be!!!!

    Cons

    Anyone who gets hired by the 3rd floor has an advantage of doing as they please. No cultural values as emphasized by the organization. Double standards. Refusal to accept responsibility when projects go awry. Poor pay when compared to other industries and competitors. Terrible benefits. Gets worse every year. Alot of secrets and gossips.....uneducated staff with high pay!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about your stock options and pay importance to the operations teams.

    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

    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.

    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.
