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

    Pros

    Great opportunity for college graduates to get real world experience for a world class organization. Great benefits and workplace dynamic. Opportunity to polish customer relationship, technical and supervisory/mentorship skills. Great work life balance

    Cons

    Compensation, I would have stayed a long time if I could have afforded to live in the Greater Boston area as the primary breadwinner in the family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees market value so you can retain them, quality over quantity. Otherwise, keep doing what your doing.

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

    Pros

    -The benefits
    -Meditech is willing to teach you from the ground up and the learning atmosphere is very relazed - and catered to teaching you. There is no pressure or tests or anything, just an entire group of people that really wants you to succeed. The overall environment is very relaxed, casual and young. And the management is always willing to help you to achieve your long term career goals, as long as they are at meditech...

    Cons

    The salary - it is not competitive at all with other similar companies.
    The company places a stigma on anyone that tries to advance their career by leaving (and receiving a better company). When quitting, the employee is asked to leave that day (unless they have a customer training the next week). And if they are asked to stay, the staff makes you feel bad for leaving to advance your career. Almost no one has ever been hired back to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to give a modest salary in the initial year after someone is hired. But once someone has proven their loyalty and learned their application, give them an initial raise (after their first year) that makes their salary comparable to other HCIS companies - the turnover would greatly decrease if people felt as though they were getting compensated for their time - especially with 50-75% travel.

    Pros

    Great people and work environment.

    Travel can be a burden.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a rule that once someone leaves the company they can never return which is ridiculous.

    MEDITECH is a company that cares about the employees; reluctant to change

    I have been working at Meditech

    Pros

    The benefits, such as health insurance and vacation/sick time, are unparalleled. Management is very receptive to employee feedback and the group setting is very personal and friendly. There is ample training provided. The food is awesome!

    Cons

    Starting salary is low compared to other companies in a similar industry (but this is outweighed by the generous benefits). The company is dead-set in their ways and are somewhat reluctant to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more receptive to suggestions from employees about how MEDITECH can change or evolve to better compete in the industry.
