    I have been working at B-Line Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Young, vibrant, and fun staff
    -Lots of free food and drinks (if your workload/ shift allows)
    -Occasional fun company events, if your schedule allows
    -Executives are young and approachable
    -Nice office in good location
    - Some job roles get to do quite a bit of travel
    -Cutting edge tech environment with lots to learn
    -Competitive benefits plan
    -No dress code ( however most managers still dress to impress)
    -1 Work from home day per week

    Cons

    -Managers/Execs are all best friends and that creates a major conflict of interest
    -Compensation is very low for the workload/hours/travel/stress most face
    -Some departments work overtime daily, some travel constantly, others haven't seen a 40 hour week all year
    -Training and documentation are lacking
    -Development is slow to update core product
    -Upward mobility/advancement seems limited
    -Work/life balance is disappearing as execs need to hire more staff to keep up with demand

    Advice to Management

    Consider new approaches and process improvements, leverage your current employees ideas and resources better.

    Start a real initiative to improve internal training and documentation, so as to shorten the lengthy on boarding process of new hires in the technical departments

    Make things less about personal achievement and status, and more about collective success and sustainability.

    Increase compensation across the board, or you will continue to have a turn over issue and never make any progress in terms of employee investment.

    Hire more staff from outside to provide a fresh unbiased analysis of the company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at B-Line Medical (Washington, DC (US)).

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews. First one was with a director of operations who had done interviewing for years. Spoke about the company and my resume. Asked me to compare the different positions I had in the past. Second interview was with the lead developer. He got fixated on one technology listed on my resume (that wasn't my main focus) out of interest. Was concerned with out systems worked rather than just putting them into practice.
