    Pros

    Salary, benefits, wellness initiatives. It is a good solid job in an area where those are at a premium. Nice office space.

    Cons

    Very corporate feel, not transparent at all with business decisions. Some co-workers have been downsized without explanation to the rest of the team. Very big company that is sluggish to change.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more transparent. When big changes were happening to our team even our direct managers had little to no information for us about what was happening for weeks.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere, opportunity to learn alot and grow within the company.
    Offers training to learn multiple sub specialties.

    Cons

    I really do not have much to say negative about the company since I am fairly new. Although the interview process took some time.

    Pros

    You are constantly learning something new. One pro i enjoy is the remote working environment. This company also very strong communication. I very much like how they keep their employees inform.

    Cons

    The onboarding process is a choppy. It depends on the division that you are associated with. I was receiving email for mandatory new hire meetings which in the company home state.

    Pros

    Some customers are great and really looking for guidance in Healthcare

    Cons

    political atmosphere, fluid job functions, frequent lay offs in all departments, claims to care about clients, but really only concerned about bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    If I could give you a rating of 0, I would. You only got in that position because you agreed to spew the company line.

    Pros

    There was lots of focus on employees and trying to cultivate a good company atmosphere. Had lots of parties, the most PTO days I've ever seen at a company (23 +1 floating day +10 holidays)

    Cons

    Salaries not competitive, hard to get promoted internally. Caliber of average employee was less than that at other companies I have worked for. Had ability to work from home, but it was looked down on.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs more strategic focus, and be honest with employees. Company meetings made it always seemed like we were in the perfect spot in the market, which just isnt true. Need better strategists and employee communication.

    Pros

    Services organization is a better place than support. Team is like family in many ways. Some US and some India based employees, but mostly co-operate together really well. After 15+ years, I am happier than ever to work here.

    Cons

    Silos across development teams.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate MORE on the small clients- they are genuinely our bread and butter!
