    Pros

    The atmosphere at Medline is friendly, lots of people who truly seem to care about each other. Senior leadership is impressive.

    Cons

    They need to review the pay scale for jobs other than sales. The pay here is lower than anywhere else I've worked. Also, the medical insurance options could be better.

    Pros

    Great benefits
    - chicago commuter program offers free shuttle service to and from the city, busses equipped with wifi.
    - free gym
    - starbucks on site
    - subsidized cafeteria
    - ability to move around in the company

    Incredible exposure to every side of the business
    It is all about connections within the organization. If you are well connected, you will get paid and do well.
    $400 christmas bonus
    Decent PTO policy

    Cons

    Management is mediocre depending on what division or service department you work for. Pay rate is horrible compared to the industry. Medline prides itself on promoting within but don't expect a significant pay raise when moving horizontally in the company. The division presidents have to receive executive office approval for anything greater than a 12% increase, most the time they tell you their hands are tied. Promotions are usually for double or triple the work at a 12% increase, which is not substantial. Medline tends to bring in people from the outside at a way higher wage than you're likely getting paid.

    Bonus structures are sometimes set up for you to not achieve it, they've completely gone away from the project based bonuses at the divisional level and youre likely going to bonused off divisional GM growth, most the time you have zero control over it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and see the talent right in front of you.
    Management plays favorites, people who don't deserve raises or praise get it.

    Great executive leadership. Very financially stable. Agile in response to business opportunities - no red tape. New ideas are not only welcome but openly encouraged.

    Pros

    Good pay, get to travel if you enjoy it, room for growth

    Cons

    Lots of travel - when travel expected to work 16 hour days. Expected to work at night and over weekend. Not a healthy work/life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be kind. My personal experience is my manager is overly critical - seems like I can do nothing right, even though I'm helping secure millions.

    Pros

    good, stable company, bonus, on-site cafe, free gym, work life balance is fine. show appreciation to workers.

    Cons

    have to put up with long-term employees who seem to be able to get away anything because they are buddies with managers. very conservative in terms of technology, not keep with the latest technology trend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk and listen to your front line employees, not just managers, to get to know the whole pictures of the company and how the majority of the workers think this company should be run. some managers seem to do nothing (no clear duty), they are a waste.

    Pros

    Benefits, higher than average pay, complimentary shuttle bus to and from Chicago and local Metra, 2 weeks paid vacation right after hire date, cafeteria, nurse liaison, on site Starbucks, and much more.

    Cons

    From personal experience in other roles at different companies there aren't any cons at Medline. The owners are great people and actually care about their employees' happiness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
