    I worked at MedAssets full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great happy hours, and Christmas parties. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Management does not know how to train employees. Also there is a lot of nepotism in that company (hiring relatives with no experience). No wonder why Medassets lost over 20 million dollars (last year) in profits. Managers do not take suggestions in a friendly manner. They think that employees (propose an alternative solution) are insubordinate, creating tension in that company. Also the QA (Quality Assurance) has to stop. This "impartial review" decreases moral in employees because workers (who are favorites and do not follow the proper steps) get to pass these quality reviews. While other employees (that get the company paid and follow most of the steps) get to fail these reviews, with the excuse " you are right, but it is what it is ." Managers are so disoriented that an employee ask one question to four different managers, and you get four different answers. It is unbelievable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has a lot of potential. However, if managers keep on doing what they are doing, Medassets will lose the USC account very soon.

    Pros

    Laid back employees, casual dress code

    Cons

    This company and CEO is making millions of dollars, but refuses to pay reasonable salaries, give descent raises or provide benefits. The company tells applicants they have good benefits but it's a high deducible HSA that doesn't help at all. You have to all expenses out of pocket so going to the physician costs you $200 or more so you can't visit the doctor often. This isn't right for a company that is in the medical profession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut your salaries and bonuses, pay your people market rates and provide good benefits. Doing this would reduce the high turnover rate. Work life balance doesn't make up for everything.

    Pros

    Great food in the Cafe. Free bagel Friday and monthly parties in the commons. Pay is pretty good starting out and benefits are okay.

    Cons

    High turnover.
    Any signs of their stock prices dipping and they lay off employees.
    Cycle of getting fat with employees then laying them off at the beginning of every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start considering other ways of fixing MedAssets financial problems instead of just laying off employees. These are peoples livelihoods, and not just things you can play with.

    I have been working at MedAssets as a contractor

    Pros

    The CEO has a lot of integrity and he follows the company's core values. At first glance the financial leadership may be initially perceived as lazy and full of malice. After much research I have come to the conclusion they are not lazy nor do they have malice. This is a pro. Most of the time they don't realize they are throwing you under the bus based on inaccurate information. Most of the time they don't realize they screwed up. This is a pro because you know there is hope.

    Cons

    Not everyone shares the same core values that CEO shares. If you work outside the finance department you are more likely to be exposed to the core value concept of integrity. The leadership in finance suffers from conceptual confusion. The leadership in finance produces data that they want to produce rather than data that is asked. The leadership in finance supports answers that the facts do not support.The leadership in the finance department is economical with the truth. The leadership in finance is proficient at being misinformed.It is my perception the leadership finance department is confused by evidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It starts at the VP level so nothing can be done. A report can always be produced that has inflated data that suits their perspective. The VP has saved the company way too much money for anything to be done as it pertains to being economical with the truth. It would be easier to eliminate integrity as your core value.

    Pros

    Only a hand-full of trusted coworkers.
    Weds midday boosting desserts
    Free bagels Friday

    Cons

    It was great at first. But once you start to stand out as a motivated worker, the scams start to pile on you (i.e: performance reviews, micromanagement starts to lock onto you)
    Be careful, do not get too comfortable, even when you do your job right.
    Have seen lots of upbeat employees turned into depressed zombies within a short period of time.
    Lower-level workers who were insulted by upper management will get empty promises to hush. Or as long as they go to HR before you do to report an incidents (i.e: confessions of wrong doings), they will get a nice tap on the wrist.
    Some management and HR are a team (minus a few honest upper levels who are unaware of what happened). You won't win against them. It's their words against yours.
    All the bells and whistles are just for show, but no-go. They are just masks to cover the wrong-doings.
    The only hotline that can help is EEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating nonwhite workers like slaves or as though they are uneducated. They might not know the industry, but they know what's going on and what you meant by certain comments.
    Your title might mean something to you in that work environment. But you won't gain any trust from strangers outside with the way you treat your workhorses.

    Pros

    There are a handful of very smart people at the organization and when it's products are implemented they sometimes do help hospitals.

    Cons

    Awful marketing and sales leaders, no career pathing and you are surrounded by people that make you wonder how they function in society.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the consultants who you paid a lots of money to ignore. Gut the marketing and sales leadership and find leaders with a proven track record rather than people who have healthcare experience.

    Pros

    The company offers flexible hours. Great Work life balance. Free alcohol and food during employee appreciation day. Free food and emegengy supplies during a natural disaster. Lots of fund raising for special causes.

    Cons

    The place is micro managed and is being run like a concentration camp. Whites are considered family and have access to more opportunities. Blacks are more likely to get fired and get lower pay than whites and hispanics. Most managers have little or no experience. Executives treat employees like 2nd class citizens and managers spend most of their times gossiping about the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved and work for your pay. Treat people like human beings not trash. Stop the racism and favortism.
