    Pros

    None!!! Very ruthless uncaring company and people!

    Cons

    Merge Healthcare acquired the company was working for (DR SYSTEMS) and the HR person just arrived yesterday and laid off a lot of people almost 25% of the staff. Don't bother wasting your time with this horrible company. They acquire companies and then lays off the people. They take the products that the other company develops and then tries to market it as their product and then they market as their product as try to say they are best in KLAS the product/products.

    Advice to Management

    You are very horrible people, you need to try developing your own products and try keeping the talented people from the companies you buy instead of taking credit for other companies and people's talent.

    My coworkers are fun people to work with, and my direct management listens to me.

    Pros

    We've got a great leadership team that has a visionary perspective on where Healthcare is heading in the future, putting us ahead of the market.

    Cons

    Some of our internal processes can be a bit counterproducitve; however, our teams are always willing to listen to potential changes if an employee is willing to bring something to the table.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower your employees... As our organizaiton continues to grow, we need everyone to take on leadership roles with our clients, solutions and internal processes.

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity in a dynamic environment. Lots of visibility when you do things right and help the business turn the corner during a difficult moment.

    Cons

    Due to numerous acquisitions, there are many different parallel process to arrive a common output for the various product lines requires large amounts of non-value added work for the individual contributors and middle management. Progress to streamline processes and improve internal IT solutions is slow due to lack of funds and foresight. This is resulting in slowly declining morale in what is otherwise a great environment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in some much needed software for your teams. Also, set the bar higher for hiring at the individual contributor and middle manager level, and compensate them with higher salary. The increase you get in productivity will more than offset the nominal annual cost.

    Pros

    I have been promoted twice since I started with the company 2 years ago! Once I gained the product knowledge, I was able to open more doors to create my ideal career path. Open door policy and flat organization Majority of employees come from large scale Healthcare IT backgrounds and add value fast once joining the company - able to share ideas and best practices, which is very helpful!

    Cons

    The PTO policy is slightly low compared to other software/IT companies

    Advice to Management

    Add more PTO to the benefit plan OR add a volunteer day that does not count against PTO. Another option would be to add a floating holiday since the majority of employees leave early around holiday weekends anyway.

    Pros

    Big company, so you really have space to grow your career. There a lot of products, some of them are really nice and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Too many products. All products are in medical field, which is heavily regulated, so it somewhat bureaucratic work, there is no "start-up" spirit here.

    Pros

    personal growth opportunities, market leading products and portfolio, forward thinking company vision, competent leaders, good benefits

    Cons

    There could be some more employee development programs.

    Advice to Management

    What a difference management has made in the last 2 years. Management must read these reviews and take internal surveys very seriously. Pay increases and bonuses were given/distributed in the first part of the year. Bonuses were not top down either.
