    Pros

    Small company with a team spirit of working together. Many long-term employees. Core values of balance of family with work schedule. I have been treated fairly, and job expectations quantified and rewarded when accomplished. If you like a small company to work with and be appreciated, this is the place. Decisions can be made quickly

    Cons

    Since it is not a huge company, the benefits are not what you might get at a larger company, but feel people are treated fairly and compensated well as long as he/she is doing his/her job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job!

    I have been working at Medical Solutions (VA) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Because it's small, there is a strong "team" feeling to the company. Everyone's input is sought, and there really isn't room for "yellers." Their expanding product lines offer opportunities to grow professionally, and results are rewarded. There is also flexibility in terms of the work hours and working from home. Salaries overall tend to be above-market.

    Cons

    Health insurance could be cheaper for the employee, and some of the other benefits, such as long-term disability insurance can be a bit pricey. Depending where you live, the commute to the home office in Chantilly can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the trend toward flexible work arrangements and maintain the "team" atmosphere of the organization.

    I have been working at Medical Solutions (VA) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You have a job (that's all)

    Cons

    Lock of resources, old lab equipment. This company went from building products to just research, no advancement career, management theory "if you don't like it, just go". Unstable management mentality, if you are out of college or not having a job, this is a good place "just for now", you won't get any further. If you have a degree, move on!

    Advice to Management

    Change the structure of the company OR get a real management team to do the job for you.

    I worked at Medical Solutions (VA) full-time

    Pros

    If you are starving and need experience this is one way to go about it

    Cons

    They take forever to pay out commission. Up to 4 months after getting a PO Quality Control Issues with Thermacor - leaking cartridges/heating elements Not enough inventory to fulfill orders in a timely manner Reimbursement of expenses take up to a month. Not bad if you like having $3000-4000 of your money being owed to you Working in a trauma environment so blood curdling screams, horrifically injured children, dead people etc. 12-18 month turnover in sales force

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and hire a management group to do your jobs for you

    Pros

    Good benefits package, and salaries. Training program is decent as well. Very nice people to work with during training. Small company, where your voice will get heard

    Cons

    The amount of travel is ridiculous. There is no work/life balance. You work for people who love working, and you're expected to do the same. Hours are long, and micro-management is to the extreme

    Advice to Management

    Create a better work/life balance for your employees so that they stay with the company for a long time, and are happy to work for you. Trust your employees to be doing their job, instead of micro-managing them

    Pros

    Supervisor and co-workers are genuine. High level of respect for people from different cultures. There is no micro managing. You are given the freedom to pursue your own solutions to problems. Management encourages training. Management is understanding in regards to appointments and time off. You are not expected to work over the weekend.

    Cons

    Very poor benefits. A family will pay over $900 a month for medical benefits. The work hours are 8am to 6pm with an hour for lunch. There are no half days prior to a holiday. There are only 2 weeks of vacations for the first 6 years of service.

    Advice to Management

    Beef up benefits.
