    I have been working at Medline Industries full-time

    Pros

    The business is strong and growing, which is great for job security. Ethical business! Great perks if you work in the corporate office in Northfield, IL. Subsidized cafeteria, 24 hour fitness center, free coffee every day and fresh fruit (on Tuesdays), shuttles to and from public transit. I REALLY appreciate that I am allowed to work remotely on occasion. Their systems are also excellent. IT is responsive whenever there is an issue. Overall nice teams, nice place to work. People cooperate and there isn't a sense of "level-ism" from most leaders -- they aren't "too good" to roll up their sleeves. Great wellness mentality and programs to support healthy lifestyles. Low employee turnover so you aren't retraining replacements all the time. Decent work life balance depending on what group you work in.

    Cons

    Some managers are not on board with flexible work arrangements yet. Base pay is not competitive. Bonus is paid quarterly, but bonus is not guaranteed and many employees rely on bonus to offset low base. Benefits are decent, but don't get sick because they are very high deductible plans. Management is a little quirky, so don't get spotted enjoying the facilities too much (don't look too comfy using those free spaces to meet with coworkers) or you might get questioned by less progressive leaders. Headcount seems a little low for the steady growth of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Employees appreciate the perks, thank you. Support flexible work/remote work arrangements. Base pay must be more competitive if you are going to attract best talent in this market. (vacation/paid time off is also not competitive) Don't wait too long to add more headcount to support exponential growth.

    Pros

    Love the people and the facilities

    Cons

    Pay increases are below cost of living increase per year. Zero room for advancement. "Performance" reviews aren't based on performance at all. You bust bust your butt, put tons of time in and you'll get the same as you did last year.

    Advice to Management

    Base performance raises on actual performance, not just a number you're allowed to give per year. Make room for employee growth, or there's no reason to even try, or your career just becomes a job. I've been told I was going to become a Senior Engineer three years ago and nothing has happened to date.

    Pros

    The hardest working and most collaborative team members I have ever experienced.

    Cons

    Deadlines trump everything, including quality. Management would rather deliver sub-par work than miss a date.

    Advice to Management

    To make your crazy work expectations more palatable to Medline employees, consider expanding work-from-home and increasing time away thresholds.

    Good benefits and clothing alotment.

    Cons

    Not a good place for long term employment. No way to advance unless you are a favorite or sleeping with a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to veteran employees not just the usual pay on the head.
