    I have been working at Henry Schein part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I have had a very nice experience. All information I have received from management and co-workers has been positive and accurate. Everyone works together well at the location I'm part of.

    Cons

    I would like a full-time position. I do get offered some extra hours on weekends and to cover other shifts for vacations and time off.

    I worked at Henry Schein

    Pros

    Salary was average and commute was good.

    Cons

    Nasty people. Watch your back. Management is insecure. Treats staff like dirt. No one knows how to cross-train. It's a shame as the company has a good reputation in name only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your day will come when the company will get wind of what you are up to. What goes around comes around.

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Other staff members are great. The location and new building are very good - there are some really nice benefits like a ping-pong table and foosball table. Also, they have provided low price healthy snacks.

    The work environment is positive and there is not a lot of micro-managing.

    Cons

    Not much to say, I have enjoyed my time with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to say here. I've been lucky and had a string of top notch managers. The company management is strong and seems to be taking us in the right direction.

    Pros

    You can run your own show.

    Cons

    Comp could be higher. Your potential for earning and your lifestyle is largely dependent on your location/manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Podium speaker. Uncap the comp plan.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you want a steady pay check to support your family. If you have ambition to move up in the company, it does not happen internally.

    Cons

    If you have ambition to move up in the company, it does not happen internally.

    People kiss butt up. If you really want to know how your mid level Managers and Directors give the people that do the a voice..

    Pros

    People are key to this environment, smart individuals who are willing to help. This company has multiple internal growth opportunities. Good atmosphere.

    Cons

    Low Wages for those hired at the average level. Company can be very political and have drama surrounding management. Everyone is looking out fo themselves and not others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better wages, more growth opportunities based on performance.

    Pros

    Community Service is a plus. Ted Philson until he passed away. Some members of the Executive team really get it. Jimmmy B is a man of integrity he is everything the company espouses with regards to the culture, leadership and a true professional .

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, bully tactics and rules by intimidation are some of the standard operation procedures within this organization. "People do not know how good they have it here", statements are often heard throughout the hallways. "Invisible hands theory" what is that? People do not believe that they can trust HR, folks feel as if they don't have anyone who will advocate for them. Diversity is minimal at best, people of color, and women are not empowered or promoted. Promotions are very slow unless you are on a "fast-track" which usually means someone has set their sites on you. Moral is artificial and manufactured by hosting large parties to act as smoke screens for what is really happening. The cultural assessment survey is laughable. "Record Breaking Profits" are the leading headlines, while folks are fearful of current talks of possible layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives need to take a real hard look at different departments to understand why there is a high rate of turn over. Listen to the people, and don't shy away from negative or positive responses. Believe there is some validity to what people are saying and feeling. Management provides executives only the information they want to hear, and not what they need to hear. Diversity is a serious concern why are minorities occupying the majority of low paying positions? (i.e.warehouse, customer service)Minorities are prominently shown in pictures during Community Service events as recipients, but not in company photos.

    Pros

    Challenging work,I learn something new every day- co-workers are nice, hard working, dedicated people. Lots of charity and volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors are not properly trained to manage and supervise. Most are micro-managers who behave like tyrants and bullies rather than do what is best for the team and the customers. I have seen favoritism and bullying on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better training in getting the most out of your team without demeaning them
