    Pros

    Free fruit on Tuesday. Coworkers are cool. Building is nice

    Cons

    THIS COMPANY IS SO CONFUSED. They want to appeal to people in Chicago (city) but refuse to match the initiatives of their competition in the city. They want new, younger employees with fresh ideas but get mad at when collaboration occurs. You can't appeal to these groups if you don't get on the same level as your competition. "Let's buy everybody laptops but make them work at their desks"... your competition is recruiting us and honestly, nearly everybody that is younger than 26 is always talking about how they can't wait to leave and go to a company that is actually operating in 2017. This is not 1980, Medline, GET WITH THE TIMES. Also, seriously? Majority of senior executives are part of the family and DO NOT DO ANYTHING ALL DAY (at least close your office doors while fooling around)

    Advice to Management

    Either get with the times or forget getting on the same level as your competitors. You are losing some great talent.

    Pros

    Wages and good incentives

    Listen to your employees concerns Give consequences to weed out bad seeds instead of 1000 warnings n lectures Release the work instead of holding it to spread out hours Let folks go home when the job is complete NEVER EVEN SEEN THE CEO Charlie Mills😏

    Pros

    Plenty of work to go around. Decent learning opportunities and talented senior management. Entrepreneurial culture with flat access to leaders.

    Cons

    Poor enterprise-wide technology investments, heavily understaffed in some areas, general company culture is at least 5 years behind “status-quo progressive”.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity if you work hard and put it extra hours.

    Cons

    Expected to put in extra hours and the job always come first. Expected to do anything asked of you, even if way out of job scope.

    Advice to Management

    More capital investment.

    I have been working at Medline Industries full-time

    Pros

    The culture is fast paced and ever-evolving. There is always something new to learn, even if the company may be a little slower to adopt a trend or process. In the last few years there has been a very positive shift towards employee development that indicates they are listening to employee feedback and towards "growing up" into a mature company.

    Cons

    The move of corporate HQ to Northfield caused a lot of talent and experience to leave although the intention was to position themselves for new talent coming from city.
