Typical KookAid - a lot of talk, little relevant action

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wayne, PA

I have been working at MEDecision full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPay is great.

Thankfully still some good people around, though many have left.

ConsPoor products and poor support for them. Little if anything done to address either. Just keep pushing out the next new incomplete features.

Not all, but many ... Managers who don't actually manage anything, seem like they don't actually want to manage, but want a managerial title and, if anything, "lead from behind" and try to apply pressure to get what they want. (a quote: "Let me find out who I have to push around to get this done.")

Upper management that seems to know plenty about sales & marketing, but little about what it takes to have something clients actually want. (a quote: "Sales cures all ills.")

A lot of talk about work/life balance, but don't try to actually have work/life balance. Can accrue plenty of time off, just don't expect to be able to use it; or if you do, expect to have to work while you're away.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe problem's not with the staff. It's with the lack of necessary leadership, lack of management, dismal product quality and poor, when there is any, support for it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Still hoping !

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wayne, PA

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

ProsThe executive management team talks a great talk. They are happy cheerful people. Hoping this will spread to lower levels of management and employee base. There are great projects in the works.

ConsToo many bosses and not enough producers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

execs love title and perqs

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at MEDecision for more than 5 years

Prosdedicated people at the core of the business; doing the best with a bad product and declining reputation

Consflawed products, egotistical execs who think they know it all, hypocrisy of messaging about how people matter; declining customer base; keep moving the deck chairs on the Titanic rather than focus on exec talent; coming from a name company doesn't mean you are a good leader

Advice to Senior Managementyou can talk all you want about how important people are and even hire a Chief People Officer but your actions speak volumes and reveal your true values

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

A good company founded by American ingenuity destroyed by pride and gr,eed

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at MEDecision full-time

ProsCompensation compensation, compensation, compensation, compensation

ConsRun by management much like a country run by Caste System. The worker bees and then the royalty.
Laying off complete departments and then asking other employees to step into those functions within in the company with no regard to their skill sets, educational background and work history. No training or professional development. Poor leadership. Leaders chosen and placed In roles that they for which they are not qualified. Positions appointed without posting the opportunity to others.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that the company needs to have uniquely qualified professionals to perform the very specific and technical tasks. In other words, you can not fit a round peg in a square hole just because you laid off or chased off all of the round pegs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

toxic culture under a leadership team that cares little for employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at MEDecision full-time

Prosemployees care about their work; a lot of capable people; smart technical people; employees put up with a lot of abuse

Consexecs want commitment but most of them work remotely from different part of the country; messages about people being a valued asset are the height of hypocrisy: criticism and demeaning people is the real experience; morale is non-existent and talent is leaving weekly but execs don't really care

Advice to Senior Managementbe honest and just tell people it's all about the money and results no matter how you get them; don't preach candor if it really just means you can say anything you want with complete disregard for showing any respect for others

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Went from Awesome to Awful in such a short time

Software Developer (Current Employee)
Chesterbrook, PA

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

ProsFlexibility
People (mostly those that used to work here)
Free Water

ConsRidiculous senior leadership
Poor job stability
Bad code base
Little/no attention to technical debt
Poor developer hardware
No investment into development, new technologies, software licensing/support

Advice to Senior ManagementStart off by firing Deb. She's driven this company straight into the ground, and it's only getting worse. Then, remember that you are a SOFTWARE company. You don't make/improve software without R&D. It's time to invest in it, or this company is going under.

Run away! With this leadership there is no future in this company.

Senior Software Developer (Current Employee)
Wayne, PA

I have been working at MEDecision full-time for more than a year

ProsGood group of people. Good work/life balance.

ConsLeaders do not know what they are doing. Good managers are gone. Most of the current managers need LOTS of training.
The CEO brought most of her friends as VP's.
Nothing to learn, it is a 9 to 5 kind of job.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop lying to customers and employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Promising company ruined

Employee (Current Employee)
Chesterbrook, PA

I have been working at MEDecision full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat, and by great I mean PHENOMENAL staff....Unfortunately they were all let go
Work from home

ConsNew head incapable of leading the company upward, (everyone is essentially her underling "move the boxes, house sit for me, run my errands, watch out for my dog"), secrets and lies run rampant here; not interested in being innovative.
RUN!

Advice to Senior ManagementHow about some loyalty to the staff that got our company rated as exceptional by our customer?/ Remember this announcement, right before you announced that you would be laying off 1/3 of the company? Hiring MORE VPs right on the tails of this is insulting!! Exactly who are they leading???

GET SOME LEGITIMATE SALES! Hint: You get this by creating technology that is innovative!!

STOP WITH THE SECRETS AND LIES! The "secret" trip to India means one thing to those of us that remain: OUTSOURCING!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a good employer

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at MEDecision full-time for more than 8 years

ProsWork life balance is good. Pay is competitive.

ConsThe company is not doing well. A third of the company was laid off recently. There does not seem to be a go-forward plan. There is zero confidence is senior management. MEDecision used to be a place people wanted to work. Not anymore. Even the people who were not laid off are planning to leave. So sad. Unfortunately, the positive reviews that are on this site about MEDecision are not a true reflection of the current state of the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn about the software industry so you can make better decisions. Try to connect with employees so they have a better impression of you. Right now we mostly think there is a lot of incompetence.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Its been real

Developer (Current Employee)
Wayne, NJ

I have been working at MEDecision full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat people to work with and lots of flex within scheduling.

ConsAll I can say is Medecision inherited a WEAK CEO!( Deb Gage) She has hired many VPs or better yet , "Yes People". The people that spoke out are now working elsewhere. A quot from the CEO, " HCSC has deep pockets." Sure lets paint the product and and force clients to upgrade. Lets redo the lobby? Wait, something wrong here? Maybe we can buy out another company and get their clients., but first lets get rid of 1/3 of the company so that we can pay for this. Pity the fool!

Advice to Senior ManagementLook for another gig before the ship sinks.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
