    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

    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.

    Pros

    Dependable job, strong company, demand for their products isn't going anywhere.

    Cons

    They talk of the 5 constituents - though I believe all come into play, I think they really favor making the shareholders happy aka corporate america.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the dead weight on the sales teams and limit the micro-management.

    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

    Current Employee - Distribution Team Member in Indianapolis, IN (US)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, good pay, plenty of voluntary overtime, excellent culture. I learned a lot about myself and how to perform functions that are valuable and marketable I started out as a temporary, and through the help of tuition assistance, I was able to finish my college education and pursue a career within my degree field.

    Cons

    At times, the pace and pressure is high, and management struggles with skills to balance this pressure and employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mentor employees that you feel would be valuable to grow within the company.

    Great company, terrible operations in field

    Current Employee - Regional Manager in Melville, NY (US)

    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.
