I have been working at Medline Industries full-time (More than a year)

Pros

If you have a positive attitude and strong work ethic you can go far here. The company is growing and debt free, so you don't see a lot in the way of lay offs like some of the large companies in the area. The culture is very fast paced, so I have never been bored. New fitness center and remodled cafeteria,

Cons

Work life balance needs improvement. It would also be nice to have more company sponsered family events.

Advice to Management

More vacation time or flex hours would be a nice addition to helping out with work/life balance.

    I have been working at Medline Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    On site cafe, tuition reimbursement program, privately held, secure industry. Good opportunity to change positions if you are good at office politics or part of the "family". Onsite gym with nice facilities. Good if you are in sales.

    Cons

    Your trading job security for low pay, expensive benefits, micro managed disorganized chaos. little organization, lack of overall strategy, middle management micromanages, and plays the blame game. Inflexible, long work hours (50-70hrs per week) expected to travel for work on your own time and own dime then expense it (no company credit card) not employee friendly. Lack of respect for personal time, expected to answer emails while on vacation and weekends. You are basically working yourself to death to make the owners and their family more day with little return for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible, train your managers to manage see your employees as real people with real lives that are just as important as your own. You are you going to lose good talent to companies who value their employees and are more flexible when the economy turns around.

    I worked at Medline Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice cubicles, nice cafeteria with good cheap food, good tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Terrible 401k plan unless you are a super earner (they have a different match structure). Pay well below industry average unless you know someone or are related to someone important. I've heard of running lean but Medline takes it to a whole new level at the expense of employees. Employees are expected to produce unbeleivable results with almost no support until something goes wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Consider moving to a more modern management style. No quality, young employees are going to stay more than a few years when they realize they are underpaid and only get 1 to 3% raises every year. Having 2 sales reps for every corporate employee is a ridiculous ratio and turnover will only increase when poeple realize there are actually good companies to work for in the area.
