    Pros

    Competitve pay and nice cubicles.

    Cons

    The worst team environment I ever experienced coupled with the absolute worst senior managment team. There are a number of senior managers in the Corp. office that provide no leadership at all. It was quite breathtaking how bad and poisonous the environment was. Be advised that it has a "sweatshop" feel to it.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in fresh leadership and not all "old time/long-term" Medline personnel to dramatically improve your teamwork.

    Don't work in the corporate office -- the SPT division was okay, though.

    Pros

    The company is making a lot of money, and you can earn some significant bonuses. Benefits are good; they actually have a progressive scale for the employee's share, so if you earn more, you pay more towards insurance. Tuition benefits are good, too.

    Cons

    Totally inflexible when it comes to work hours. Everything is micro-managed, and nobody trusts their employees at all. The family running the show knows everyone in the building, and has no problem yelling at anyone. They tend to prey on young college grads, who are excited to have a ton of responsibility right off the bat, and only realize later that they are overworked and underpaid, and a fancy title doesn't make it a good place to work. Senior management consists of one woman, one Asian guy, and 58 white men.

    Advice to Management

    Make some real efforts to attract and retain women and people of color.
