    I worked at PSS World Medical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unique culture, some great people.

    Cons

    Lack of clear career pathing/opportunities, salary below industry average.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify - most of the executive management team have only worked at PSS their entire careers, which leads to a culture of "yes-men" and lack of fresh ideas.

    I have been working at PSS World Medical as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredible culture. Great people. You can work remote on occasion. There are a lot of things going on, so you can do just about anything.

    Cons

    There is some really bad code in there. The original eCommerce app that is still in use is a compendium of anti-patterns. It takes some work to get used to it. The good news is that piece by piece we are refactoring it into a much less painful beast and pulling services out and building new ones.
