    I worked at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Meditech is a uniquely-honed workplace: open work environment, endearing group meetings, and expressively friendly colleagues. Notably, Meditech trains every person from scratch. As most companies typically require a couple years experience before directly hiring, this makes it an excellent springboard to garner experience as a new college graduate. Working with Meditech has given me the assurance to travel to hospitals around the country and confidently give presentations on moderately complex medical software. Although initially very critical of presentation skills, supervisors will ultimately give you the freedom to travel alone and work with a wide variety of people. I can confidently say, after my couple years at Meditech, I am much more prepared to enter the medical software and devices market. Bonus: and if you stay with the company for the longhaul, you're almost guaranteed a salary bump every year (I'm pretty sure most people get a raise), and they're highly appreciative and rewarding of longevity.

    Cons

    The majority of the cons I could potentially list are directly correlated with my own group structure, so I won't dwell on those. Although I was working with a new product, and the team was disfigured and oftentimes mismanaged, this is definitely not the norm. However on the corporate level, there still are a few concerns I can name off the top of my head: The open environment is more distracting than helpful, especially with a chatty group dynamic. Sometimes, at least initially, the freedom to travel alone is daunting; there is a point in between leaving the nest and flying that isn't mediated well enough. In addition, because employees are rewarded for longevity, the management teams have escalated to current positions due to career stagnancy, and only in part (but not necessarily) for hard work. Certain Supervisors and Managers seem to be the socially awkward individuals who didn't want to leave the company and try for something a little more challenging in life, and this is directly reflected in their work ethic: typically saddled in a comfortable mindset, they will dump work on newer folks, completing about 1/2 of their own current workload, and delegating to others (in fact, as a specialist in any department, you will often know just as much or more than the overseers).

    Advice to Management

    The most important piece of advice I can give management is to get long-term employees back on their feet and diligently working again: more internal performance checking and auditing, as well as a HR Department, will be an advantage with the company's rapid growth rate.

    Pros

    Great job out of college and great way to learn a new product. You learn presentation skills and how to manage your customers.

    Cons

    Not much room for career progression. There is more opportunity in leaving than staying with the company.

    Pros

    Alright, I see everyone complain about low salaries for implementation and I just do not get it. You are not in a high pressure job. You are not asked to work more than 40 hours. If you want a job like that then go get one and make a little more money. This is so easy to break down but people either do not grasp it or just ignore it and only want to look at salary. Year 1- Start off making 40k, no bonus, no profit sharing, maybe only a couple of work trips so you end the year at 41k. (You get paid 150 dollars each trip so people who do 20-25 a year make an extra 3-4k.....Oh and plus all the money you save and perks of travelling are worth at least another couple thousand) Year 2- With a decent raise you are up to 42.5k and a bonus of 2k. You travel more so that adds 2k. The company provides the profit sharing plan so there is another 1.5 k year 2. Total pay year 2 is 48k plus the money saved of travelling easily pushes you over 50k. Year 3. Another raise puts you to 45k and since the bonus grows rapidly, you are up to 5k on it. Same travel and same profit sharing but that grows as you grow as well so that is now 2k. Total compensation year 3 is 54k. Year 4- Salary at 47.5, bonus 7k, travel 2k, profit sharing 2.5k. Total compensation is 59k. That is at an average raise. If you get higher obviously you can really start to accelerate your income. Also if you are in a group that travels almost every other week, that can add another 1k plus benefits of travelling. I am not a Meditech honk and believe me they have their issues and outdated ways, but salary is really not that bad. Go there and work a little and then you will be rewarded. These people want it the other way around.

    Cons

    There are cons. Reporting structure, can be stuck in a group with no real growth, at times feels like a ton of people in the company do not much care for the company. The whole way the groups are broke down almost make it feel like a high school cafeteria where everyone is stuck within their group they start with.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who deserve it, not those who are just in the right group or situation

    Pros

    Job stability. It is nearly impossible to get fired. The only person I know that got fired was sending harassing emails to female coworkers.

    Cons

    The money is not that great. Just good enough to string you along.

    Advice to Management

    There is really nothing that the management can do about the low raises. The board of directors controls everything.

    Pros

    Great supervisor, great training, amazing experience and I learned a LOT.

    Cons

    Salary is extremely below market value, although in their defense they do hire entry level candidates.

    Advice to Management

    It's not the end of the world to think outside the box once in awhile.
