I have been working at Medline Industries as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

- Very stable company and highly profitable business
- If you stay long enough with the company you will eventually have a great salary and good benefits with a college degree
- Free Gym access, subsidized food prices with very quality food

Cons

- A very politcal environment where connections trump skill every time.
- Can be difficult to get promotions if you don't know how to socially game the corporate world

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use better software and use a service such as Syndio Social's analytics to better understand the qualms that your employees have at working at Medline Industries. They are pretty apparent to the people working in each particular department but aren't apparent to upper management because they don't directly communicate with the departments they are operating on a more global/world wide level. This is level of disconnect between lower ranking employees and upper management is probably pretty consistent through the corporate world environment in America.
