    I have been working at 21CT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New brand is a true reflection of the strategic growth and potential of 21CT to truly change the world. Analytic technology PLUS people EQUALS results.

    Cons

    It is a startup, so you must be ready to shift and wear dozens of different hats. Be ready to be uncomfortable at times and welcome new challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused and listen to what the market is telling you. Although growth is tremendous it is critical that as a company we also focus on growing in the right places.

    I worked at 21CT full-time

    Pros

    The culture and atmosphere are great. Bosses are flexible and supportive, the offices are incredibly nice, lots of perks like lunches, top quality coffee, cool people.

    Cons

    Some of the projects were incredibly frustrating, digging though years old spaghetti code that no one really understands anymore. No real commitment to refactoring or code maintainability.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down deadlines or hire more people so that projects can be properly refactored periodically. Time spent up front on this process always pays off in the long run.


  3. Great Culture until falling prey to cutthroat politics

    Pros

    Smart people doing valuable work - hunting for signs of bad guys in the data Good benefits - 401k, increasing amounts of vacation, good health benefits Flexible work environment

    Cons

    Try googling "21ct medicaid" news to find out the company's recent troubles. If they get past this, it might become a great place to work again.

    Advice to Management

    The overall management was supportive and proactive. I don't know whether it is reasonable to expect the top management to have seen the contract problem before it surfaced.

    I worked at 21CT full-time

    Pros

    The company has a great product, is in a high growth market and has hired top notch people. Overall good benefits and culture, and fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the loss of a big contract and customer has caused downsizing; and the stability of the company remains to be seen.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the government space and realign products toward more commercial applications, rebrand the company, and get partner with the right investors to help get the company back on track. You can still pull this out.

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. They promote a sense of community and show appreciation to their employees.

    The process of securing contracts prior to staffing up definitely needs improvement.

    I have been working at 21CT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Efforts on the part of HR to build a positive culture were one of the best experienced in more than 20 years of professional experience. This resulted in an impressive array of team members - many of whom I would actively seek out to be on future teams.

    Cons

    Executive management suffers from "smartest people in the room" syndrome. That sought from team members at all levels is simply execution. Any debate / discussion that may have occurred came to be understood as largely pro forma as decisions almost invariably were pre-determined. While this may have made for streamlined decision making it did not result in optimal outcomes. Further, the practice served to undermine the sense of being a valued team member. There was a clear delineation between those deemed trusted and therefore worthy of being listened to and those who were not.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is not simply being in charge and making decisions. It is most importantly about being able to bring together a team of people and supporting them while guiding towards a collective objective. Leaders are most effective when able to coordinate, train and mentor individuals into a tightly organized team with a sense of purpose.

    Pros

    21CT offers employees an underlying ability to grow in their current positions. There is a strong sense of accomplishment shown in everything that we do in our daily work. 21CT makes it easy to realize your potential and in terms of work ceiling, there is none.

    Cons

    21CT is still trying to figure out somethings but this is to be expected when setting up new functions within the company.

    I have been working at 21CT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    21CT is the type of place where doers excel and successes--individual and team--are celebrated. The company is enjoying a great period of growth and opportunity, creating a lot of space for initiative and individual leadership to be demonstrated and appreciated. What's more, the industries and type of work the company does make you feel like you're working on the right side of things and contributing to societal good. That's cool.

    Cons

    Some growing pains maturing processes, but you notice management takes these things seriously and is paying attention.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused for the big win.

    Pros

    strong sense of culture - company invests in employees and makes an effort to make it a place people want to be. examples include catered lunches, beer on fridays, organized events, monthly q&a sessions with execs, nice offices, etc. they solicit frequent feedback, are open to suggestions for improvement and seem genuinely interested in attracting and retaining high quality talent.

    Cons

    frequent strategy changes sometimes feels like churn; some decisions seem reactionary. workload can be demanding at times, but i enjoy the challenge.
