    I have been working at Medline Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Medline is full of opportunities. It's a stable company (always growing in size and sales) where management gives great opportunities and employees can earn more responsibility quickly. It's a great place to grow - particularly for those starting entry-level. Good benefits - beyond the norm of medical/dental/PTO, they offer in-house cafeteria, free shuttles to/from the city, onsite fitness center, great internship programs, tuition reimbursement, etc. Employees at corporate are friendly and overall good environment to work. It's family-owned and often feels like a family environment despite it's large size. Be ready to work hard and you'll earn that much more in return.

    Cons

    Medline has grown in size fast and sometimes the resources take longer to catch up. Career advice and professional development is often times dependent on your direct manager(s) so you could have great support or struggle to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Engage all levels of employees and be visible, accessible and open-minded.

    Pros

    I was well trained to do my job. It's good to work for a company that actually does the job right. The people I work with are extremely collaborative.

    Not impressed with career progression nor having a variety of activities in my current position

    Let employees get involved with projects they are interested in. Let that drive things to some extent.

    I have been working at Medline Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The ability to learn, work with other teams and grow are present. The benefits in terms of health, dental and 401k are decent, as well as the perks like on-site gym and dry cleaning.

    Cons

    Can be overwhelming and extremely stressful as many wear so many hats in one position. Communication is improving but needs a lot of work. The 12-month wait to change roles within the organization is a turnoff.

    Pros

    Great office building.
    Opportunistic.
    Strong culture of success.

    Cons

    Growth has come fast and furious and as a result the company has an identity crisis. The further the ‘family’ moves out of leadership so does the culture that they developed. Too many MBAs that are in senior level positions without business understanding or strong work ethic. These people can maintain but not develop. Very different than what built the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to whom you have running your business. Some are not qualified nor have the work ethic that has been what has grown the company.
