    I have been working at Medisca full-time

    Pros

    -Current management in place, new commission plan, overall view for the future have all improved greatly.

    -New opportunity for reps now more than ever.

    -If you are looking to grow as a rep the environment here will allow for this. In the past it did not.

    -Over all the company is moving in a positive direction.

    -Reps being able to make good money, opportunities opening up, and great leadership are all great signs of things to come.

    -the people

    Cons

    -Upper management needs to find direction and stick with it.

    -Always late the party on “new” products and lines.

    -Can take time to get things accomplished inside the company.

    -No communication from what happens inside to outside

    Advice to Management

    -Develop the team you have, if someone isn’t buying into the new direction. Move on.

    -Give them the tools they need to succeed.

    -Be open to new ideas

    -Listen to the feet on the street and what they see/hear about our industry.

    I worked at Medisca full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    these glassdoor reviews (please listen to them)
    **honestly the company has really bad management (once proper training and proper management is in full effect the company could be somewhat decent.)

    Cons

    *management (very poor)
    *EXTREMELY high turn over rate
    *policies and procedures (no guidelines or proper foundation)
    Canadian holidays
    poor breaks
    roles are never solid
    --management pretty much will have you complete everyone else job or assist unless Medisca is being audited or reveiwed
    *Manipulative attitudes
    ***short story.. while 8 months pregnant one of the employees was told to lift very heavy barrels and to constantly speed up the process and work with dangerous chemicals which was very uncomfortable witnessing. While other employees, mostly male, would simply count items and do other miscellaneous projects

    Advice to Management

    Get new management
    Have better and more understanding policies and procedures

    Pros

    Not many pros, but I guess it could be a bridge to something better. Can be Very cliquish but there were a few people there who were nice to work with.

    Cons

    Where do I start? It's like working in the dark ages. Or the industrial revolution. You have to punch a time clock for literally everything. Even if you're in sales or an account executive. Breaks, lunch, in, out, everything. This is forced on the employees by the owners of the company. Nepotism is rampant, if you're related to them you might not have to punch a time clock. They dock your pay if you're one minute late and No, you can't stay late to make up for it. You only have 45 minutes for lunch, WHO still does that?!? Vacation time is awful, sick time policy is awful, worst benefits I've ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times.

    Pros

    Great IT department. They make sure you have everything you need in the field to perform your job duties.

    Cons

    Upper Management does not care or consult employees about job or training guidelines. Supervisors are allowed to neglect and discriminate against reps.

    Advice to Management

    Show some commission and understanding towards employees. You cannot build a successful company by beating up employees that are doing their job and exceeding sales goals

    Pros

    I love my job, I love the people I work with, and IMO this company has some amazing leaders in place who are ready to propel it forward. If you follow Warren Buffett at all, his quote sums it up - "When you find that job that causes you to be excited every day – forget about the pay – with people you love, doing what you love, it doesn’t get any better than that.” If you get an opportunity to be a part of this organization, I would highly recommend taking it.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons. I guess there's room for improvement as far as holidays, sick days, PTO etc. Those type of benefits are weak. But weak is better than nothing.

    I have been working at Medisca full-time

    Pros

    If you enjoy high turnover, disrespectful people, and being constantly micromanaged then you would be a great fit with this company!

    Cons

    Management is a disgrace with no communication amongst employees. Medisca is a scam of a company with various lawsuits and recalls so please think before applying.

    Advice to Management

    Some people need to be fired ASAP and replaced with competent employees.
