    I have been working at Medline Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great, hard-working and friendly people to work with. I've had some very good smart and good managers here.

    Cons

    HR is very hard to work with. Generally, they have too much to do and do not communicate in an efficient or timely manner.

    There is a salary team independent of HR or managers that dictate how much you can make. Ability to negotiate is very limited. In general, from what I have seen, Medline tends to hire young and stay on the lower end of the salary range.

    I've seen most upper positions filled by outside candidates and employees are not generally provided a path for advancement.

    Working from home is frowned upon and only allowed in emergencies. Car broke down, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Looking to promote from within for positions and provide a path for advancement would go a long way. Also, a work from home policy would be great.

    Pros

    Growth and movement within the company is available for those that put quality work in.

    Cons

    Some positions get more recognition than others within this organization. They need to expand perks for every level of employee. They need more work on finding ways to grow a person in the same position . Pay could be improved upon as well.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you focus on every area of your group from the top to bottom. Get to know people from different levels within their area as well as other areas within our company.

    I worked at Medline Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Subsidized cafeteria
    *Some good managers that are actually competent and "get it." However, quality of management by department is highly variable.
    *Some cool fellow employees to commiserate with
    *Work from downtown office options (for some Divisions)
    *Cross-functional work can be interesting, and some international exposure depending on your Division

    Cons

    *The work hours are insane, coupled with an awful commute. 8, if not 7:30 to 5? If you're coming from the city, that means waking up at 5:30 every day and not getting home until 6:30. No thanks.
    *Morale problems across the company that stem from the top. Executive leadership / the Mills brothers are narcissistic and only care about generating sales. They do not engage with most Product Managers nor do they exude professionalism or positivity when they are employee-facing. They also patrol the office (especially on Fridays) to make sure people are on their phones (read: this is the definition of micromanagement).
    *Role revolves around Sales force, so work to is either excessive or non-existent and everything feels like a fire drill.
    *EXTREMELY customer service-oriented in nature (answering phone calls, responding to basic emails all day)
    *Because you are "on call" to the needs of reps, you are chained to your phone / email all the time to respond to the redundant questions 500+ sales reps .
    *If you're looking for "General Management" exposure after college, look for a company that actually is invested in challenging you and your growth. There are so many better healthcare companies out there. You will get bored quickly.

    Advice to Management

    *Lose the ego, and when you're in front of employees, be respectable. Your company is almost entirely commodity-based (and will probably get overtaken by Amazon), and you only grow through acquisition (which is not organic growth).
    *Actually listen to the ways in which employees want to be rewarded (not with tacky employee appreciation weeks). Flex working hours / more Work from Home could be a start.
