    Great place to work. Management listens to ideas and concerns and follows through. CEO is wonderful and passionate about what she does.

    Cons

    Corporate office is in a rural area. Compensation is a little in the low end.

    Pros

    Good Company Values and Ethics. Good product striving to keep improving its manufacturing processes and quality. CEO has a sincere direction for the company and its place in the industry.

    Cons

    Management doesn't walk the talk. Revenue relies too much around making distributors happy through entertaining them instead of adding true value to the company's product and history. Giving distributors a platform that they can't do without such as (automated ordering system, loyalty incentives, clinical education, professional and solution based sales education vs. just features & benefits) instead of trying to be their best friend and entertaining them all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to select your managers. True field management is coaching and supporting your field reps while taking responsibility for your team and being committed to help them develop successfully. That supposedly is one of the company's core values.

  3. Great company with a future!

    Pros

    The company focuses a lot on developing people and the company, if you want to do something, the people there will do anything to make it happen. I have not been there long but the people there are much nicer than anywhere else I have ever been. It is not just a job for the people there, it is a career that they care very much about. Also, air conditioned plant.

    Cons

    The company moves much faster than it should. There is a need for allowing people to move through life and trying different roles. But there is a need for stability. I have been working for there for 2 years and already there have been 4 different co-op leads. The co-ops have no idea to talk to because it changes too frequently. This is the same for everywhere as everyone is constantly switching jobs causing down time. Also, "Too many chiefs, not enough Indians." Management is huge, we do not need that many supervisors. It clogs things up and causes discontent among the people doing the work on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    More Indians, less chiefs.
    Odd request but less mobility.

    Pros

    The CEO is not only a top leader in the healthcare manufacturing industry, she is a physician so she understands the customer.

    Most of the people who work for Midmark are very concerned and caring people. They care about the customer and about each other. Most come from an environment in or near Versailles, Ohio that is a close community and a very hard-working community.

    The company has shown change and growth over the last 100 years. That says a lot about its innovation and how its been able to reinvent itself.

    Cons

    Because the CEO pushes personal development, which should be a great thing, many times employees step on each others' toes. Growth and new tasks should be up to a person's manager, not up to an individual to take on tasks simply because they want to. Objectives and tasks need to be placed where they belong. Otherwise, this causes confusion about who is doing what, and friction between departments and between people. End result - bad morale.

    As the company grows, not everyone grasps the culture. The company, known by its tagline "Because we care" included caring about internal and external customers. With more focus on numbers as well as many being overwhelmed and overworked, internal customers needs were not being met. Many do not take responsibility for their actions or show a huge lack of communication, again causing poor morale and poor working environment.

    The move of the headquarters to Dayton was a good move for the growth of the company; however, they should have moved more employees or not moved it at all. Communication within and between other departments became a struggle and no one was leading the change. People were feeling displaced, having to work both in Versailles AND Dayton each week. It didn't make any sense.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management - communicate with each other. Make sure your colleagues understand what your departments do. Make sure your teams are communicating with each other.

  10. Too many changes, not enough focus

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, safe and healthy environment

    Cons

    System-wide instability with too many people doing continuous improvement projects and problem-solving with insufficient training. For the average shop floor worker, this kind of environment interferes with daily production and decreases morale. Also, Midmark has undergone a plant expansion and is in the middle of moving departments around, so this also contributes to instability.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid micro-managing. If you have support staff and team leaders working for you, let them do their jobs with minimal guidance.
