A productive environment allowing me to learn as well as enjoy my job
IT Client Services (Former Employee), Versailles, OH – August 31, 2015
Pros: Great learning experience, enjoyable environment
Cons: Stressful days near project due dates
Through my internship at Midmark, I was able to learn many things around both my major and the understanding of a business environment. I learned useful skills to my major such as the use of batch scripts – more... to automate tasks and a basic understanding of the hardware of a computer. Similarly, I also learned how deal with people and got the experience of customer service. This taught me patience and many other important virtues to any professional. Although I did learn a lot through this job, that is not to say I did not enjoy it. The IT department as a whole enjoyed multiple team bonding experiences such as cook outs and kickball games as well as just going out to lunch together with Client Services. It provided a fun and productive environment that was perfect to enhance my learning. – less
Cons: It is a small town, and the work is challenging.
There is never a typical work day. You are expected to be very creative and responsive to the current work and demands in the job. You have to love working at a high level and being challenged. While – more... at Midmark one of the greatest things I learned is the importance of emotional intelligence and all of the places that it is essential to your interactions. Management is a strong, smart group of people that want to succeed. – less

Extended Warranty Sales Rep (Former Employee), Gardena California – January 30, 2015
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: impossible demands by upper management
I was in Extended Warranty department and my coworkers were Great. Eventually corporate management demanded more and more numbers, which given the amount of units in use, were not possible to obtain. After – more... a speech of how they did not believe in the recession, Layoffs began. We were treated well and commissions were paid even after two months away plus a small Severance after 3 months separation. .Loved the people I worked with and for at this location. – less
Manager, Corporate Development (Current Employee), Dayton, OH – February 27, 2014
Pros: community atmosphere, company reinvests into itself, pay and benefits competitive.
Cons: tendency to try to tackle more projects than can be supported.
Midmark got into the healthcare equipment industry by selling a better exam table out of the back of a station wagon while the competitive leaders weren't looking. Today Midmark has tremendous market share – more... in several product lines. However, our CEO and leadership team reminds us daily that what got us here today won't get us there tomorrow. We need to stay ahead of the next person/company with a viable product and station wagon. The company invests in teammate development so we can come in better today than we were yesterday, not only for personal growth, but to help move the company in new, innovative directions. – less
Positive attitude all around that created a great atmosphere along with working alongside great motivated individuals.
Engineer and Marketing Intern (Former Employee), Versailles, OH – February 24, 2014
Pros: great managment
Typical day of work consisted of providing and feeding off everyone's positive energy that constituted to being motivated day in and day out to get the tasks needed to be done on a daily basis. I worked – more... around a great group of individuals within a highly organized team function. I learned engineering and marketing terminology as well as viewing various upstream and downstream marketing strategies that dealt with product, positioning, research, promotion, and distribution in the Midmark 630 HumanForm procedure table. Also dealt with the organization of each and every individual part that went along with the procedure table. The hardest part of the job was playing catch up as I entered the current project about half way through creation. The most enjoyable part of the job were working with the groups of teams that I was fortunate enough for this opportunity. – less
Imaging Sales Representative (Former Employee), SouthEast – January 26, 2014
I would rank Midmark 3 stars out of 5 stars. Great products supplied for the dental market with competitive pricing. THe hardest part of the job would be maintaining sales growth and providing existing customers with proper technical support.
Teammate (Former Employee), New York – January 7, 2013
Pros: decent health insurance
You work your butt off for this company and they don`t care about you at all. They tell you that it is family orienated and that they care about you and your family. NOT!!! The best thing that could happen for that company is UNION to protect the employees. BAD place to work
assembly/quality control (Current Employee), Versailles, OH – September 10, 2012
Pros: good benifits
Cons: working hours
Management ,this area is something the company needs to work on,poor communication between workers and supervisors. Work alot of hours ,you work until the build plan is done for the day whether it is 10hrs – more... or 8hrs. Can`t plan on a schedule outside of work, can`t make plans to do anything until after work is done and if you have to leave for anything you either use vacation time or it count against you attendance. – less
Pros: teammate development and continuous improvement
Cons: i really don't have a major con about midmark.
A typical day at work for me involved managing and setting direction for the facility. I worked with my team of supervisors to drive TPS modeled improvements throughout the entire operation.
At Midmark, – more... I learned a great deal. They taught me how to be a professional, how to engage and lead others, and how to dig into the details on a project and put solutions together. The Midmark team is a group focused on people development and continuous improvement.
The hardest part of the job is being able to manage the demands from the corporate site with the demands of the local site. Being the leader at the local site, it was imperative that I be able to wear both the corporate and the local hats. – less
Executive Project Coordinator (Former Employee), Glasgow, KY – April 10, 2012
Pros: great benifits
Cons: poor staff placement and hr support
Midmark is a great company that values their ability to adapt and change; however, the can not see the forest through the trees. There desire for continues change model prevents the managers from seeing – more... the staff for the individuals that they are and the benefits that they offer. There managers are intimidated by others opinions and unless you follow company mantra you are alienated and dismissed, even if you have skills that could benefit the company. If you are a follower who can curtail your opinion to meet a stringent list of requirements, or are looking for a 9 to 5 that will require minimal intellectual contribution then this is a perfect company. – less
Amen , They don`t care about the well-being of their employees
all that company cares about is getting all they can out of the employee before they kill them and then let them go.
