    I worked at Medline Industries full-time

    Pros

    Good atmosphere Decent benefits, some extra that others do not offer like Critical Health Insurance for example. I appreciated the mentoring of upper management while I was there. Good advancement opportunities, any move around between Departments as well.

    Cons

    Workload - often worked overtime during the day and from home in the evenings as well. Many employees on the floor complained of workload resulting in higher turnover rates than normal. Taking PTO was difficult, taking two days away would put anyone a week behind due to an already heavy workload. Time Management not the issue, the volume is. The company is growing at a very rapid pace, I recommend they... accommodate with increasing quality headcount and technology. Also, the new Corporate headquarters in Northfield is already running out of space for new hires (it is a beautiful building though)

    Advice to Management

    Expand and increase quality headcount to help manage the A/R to avoid an increase of bad debt in 2020.

    I worked at Medline Industries

    Pros

    Great benefits, good attempt at employee support socially

    Cons

    Nothing ever seems to get done. Very little positive communication. Most is critical unless it's based on your numbers.

    I have been working at Medline Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary, above average benefits, many very dynamic divisions, stable work, attractive bonus.

    Cons

    Historically not invested in IT as other peers, going through adolescence/catching-up. Sales organization has oversized influence and can exercise extreme pressure on other teams. Bonus structure NOT linear, very arbitrary on some areas. Management confused with Leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding transparency to individual's bonuses/goals to bring more alignment. Some groups have plenty management and not enough leadership. IS group needs all the support in the world through its transformation.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the poor managers by listening to the teams, far too much great talent lost by lack of support and toxic team environment. Increase work/life balance prioritization.
