    Pros

    They lure you to the Devils pit with job offer Fedex and in this recession you would fall for it!
    Nice building and location for tranquility as well as meditating on lunch breaks etc.
    Benefits start right away!

    Cons

    Training sucks and help is based on controlling facts!
    You ask for help and they seek revenge and start to
    write you up! Then the layoff! Don't monitor and trend your concept of learning after training
    always expect more and would have you do there job without merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have Compassion and learn Diversity! Stop seeing differences as weakness and humble yourself, and treat everyone the same. Too much kiss up Managers sniffing and destroying other talented employees.

    Pros

    It's a very family-oriented company and the people there are generally nice. Corporate environment is business casual and teamwork is pretty amazing. Overall, I learned a lot from my job (and my peers) and it has paved the way for a great career on my end.

    Cons

    It's a mid-size company so you are often asked to take on a billion tasks at once (some of which aren't even part of your job description) without any real incentive. Also seemed like a dead job end at times. Very little room for growth or advancement here unfortunately. Senior management lacked direction while I was there and were kind of out of touch with the people. And yeah raises were pretty abysmal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Profits are important but not as much as your employees and your customers. You will have little to no more business if you continue favoring dollars over people.

    Pros

    Nice office, ability to work from home, great talent in my group

    Cons

    At the time, senior leadership was absolutely atrocious. It was very male oriented and they were very protective of their own. Lacked vision for the industry and were just coasting on what had made them money in the past. Not sure what it has been like since the new CEO took over.

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the medical field and pharmaceutical companies, as well as different ways to search for information that is difficult to find.

    Cons

    My job in particular was very tedious and redundant so it can be quite boring at times, but it is still necessary to do the tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am pleased with how I was treated by the staff and they taught me valuable techniques in terms of internet research.

    Former Employee - IT Manager in Chesapeake, VA

    I worked at Advanced Health Media

    Pros

    More time off than most companies
    Office was close to home
    Fellow IT Staff were knowlegable and helpful
    Variety of Projects allowed IT staff to work on new things
    IT Managers had adequate access to system resources to allow them to get their job done

    Cons

    Upper Management didn't respect middle management opinions at times.
    Too much red tape and over engineered processes caused project delays and software quality to decline.
    IT Development staff was forced to meet deadlines set by business without consulting with IT.
    Staff is underpaid
    No Raises for almost 3 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff! Change your focus from the bottom line back to taking care of your customers and more importantly your employees. After all, the employees are the ones that take care of your customers! Eliminate the red tape that ties down your staff. Get rid of the offshore development staff. They may be cheaper but they really don't have a clue about the business and will be the death of the software that helped make the company great.

    Pros

    Some of the people were nice.
    It beats unemployment

    Cons

    Nepotism runs rampant and the morale is the pits. People tend to tread-water at this company and it's a dead-end for your career. The longer you stay, the less marketable you become. Goal-oriented people beware, you will not achieve or learn much here and you might even develop a few bad habits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop billing yourself "as one of the best places to work in NJ". It's just not the case anymore, if it ever was.

    Pros

    WFH program is pretty good - flexible and middle management attempts to promote work life balance.

    Cons

    Decisions are made at the top level by folks that have no idea of what's going on in the barracks. IT projects ALWAYS late and over budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring IT to NJ closer to the business users - the tech shop in Norfolk is too far removed from the business to be able to partner.

    I worked at Advanced Health Media

    Pros

    There were some people who were honestly trying to make the best of a BAD situation. Unfortunately they were sorely out numbered and unsupported by leadership and most of them are gone now. At the start you really WANT believe the explanations about "managing growth" and "temporaty challenges of transition and reorganization" but after awhile the excuses just don't hold up and you realize they are just buying time at your expense. Trying to keep the machine running while the big deals in the back-room that will benefit the select few are being negotiated & finalized.

    Cons

    Nepotism, bias and a culture of dishonesty. As a place where only people without options tend to remain, there is more morale at a funeral. The technology platform is an antique, the billing for IT support borders on fraud & those that are willing to look the other way are rewarded for playing along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop masquerading as an employer of choice. Most of the people aren't loyal, they are trapped. It's obvious priorities have changed and that there is an aggressive, if sloppy, agenda and investing in people is not part of the current plan.
