    Pros

    The people that works on the production Floor are Great. and hard working staff

    Cons

    The upper management in Lithia Springs GA. treat people that work under them like they're trash. They have no respect for their employees nor for the job that they do for them. I have never worked for a more dysfunctional company in my life. Management has no clue on operating a company nor how to respect any of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace all Management in Lithia Springs GA. before they make a good company fail.

    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.

    Pros

    Good people to work for. Fast paced, always busy!! a lot of social options for after work including cubs games and an employee appreciation week that was always full of fun things to do.

    Cons

    The pay was not competitive. they have a tendency to not train you well and kind of throw you to the sharks.

    Pros

    Good benefits and the pay is decent.

    Cons

    Will bleed you to death and then let you go for new blood

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should pay attention, if employees have bad attitude there is a reason. It doesn't help that management only listens to HR and HR works for the company Not the employee.
