    Pros

    Knowledgeable and friendly/helpful employees. Ability to move and grow within company. Steady and loyal client base. Company prided itself on its ability to drive compliance to contracts and obtain the best pricing for their clients.

    Cons

    There seemed to be layoffs every year which hurt morale. Senior management would openly insult competitors which seemed to be in poor taste. (This review is prior to Broadlane's purchase by MedAssets)


  2. Great people and great goals! I left for family reasons.

    I worked at Broadlane full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Highly ethical company that succeeds in being impartial in facilitating health group purchases.

    Cons

    Challenges working there are the usual office politics, but they are always working to improve it. Much better than most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great ethics in every way!

    Pros

    It used to be good. The benefits are great. Work and family life balance can be maintained fairly. Depends on your group or team members your work might not be as bad as the other group.

    Cons

    Lot of miscommunication between Upper management and mid level employees, lot of distrust between groups. Very low morale. A lot of changes are ridiculous and completely mismanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees as only resources, think things through before taking any action. Do the due diligence, and research, be prepared to provide alternatives.

    Pros

    Company has a niche in market place, should do well

    Cons

    Company does not value employee, moral is generally low. Not enough focus on internal technology.

    Advice to Management

    Many employees do not trust or have faith in your leadership.

    Pros

    OK benefits (standard health, vision and 401k), some great associates from Broadlane's early days, but they are leaving quickly, a stable business model.

    Cons

    The culture has changed from open and innovative, to command and control with little room for feedback. Since the culture has shifted, many employees are in protective mode and are just trying to keep their jobs. Treatment of associates or middle management is not even with senior management. The "spin" Broadlane puts on its internal messages are just outright lies. In my opinion, Broadlane is trying to transform this service company into a factory mentality of everyone is replaceable, follow the six sigma process, and don't take any chances.

    Advice to Management

    Advice is not something that the new CEO will take, but if he did, I would tell him to transform the culture into an open innovative environment where employees can take chances and be rewarded appropriately. Also, diversify your business model so you are not at risk from a congressional change to the treatment of GPO's.


  8. Erratic Place to Work -- Really Smart and Capable Workforce

    Pros

    Nice offices, super smart and motivated co-workers, competitive salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    Always in an uproar. Corporate amnesia when it comes to fixing chronic problems. Same things plague operational efficiency year after year after year. And then some new executive comes up with a plan to fix it as if it is a brand new issue. Amazing.

    Advice to Management

    I think leadership only hears its own voice, so my advice would fall on deaf ears. This company succeeds in spite of itself because the employees are so driven they refuse to fail.


  9. Terrible place to work, great people but unfortunately none in senior management

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with smart people and help clients. Many places nearby to go to lunch if someone hasn't scheduled a meeting during lunch but someone probably did while I was writing this...

    Cons

    Senior Management behaves like they are in a college fraternity and employees are pledges. Promotions based on favoritism, most jobs filled before (if) posted. Company incapable of completing any initiative successfully, starts new initiatives before finishing the others - perhaps deliberate ploy to distract from failures. Employee morale is so low that department leads keep canceling team meetings so they don't have to hear about it or communicate corporate strategy, if it has any strategy beyond makings its investors wealthy. Zero work-life balance, no appreciation for overtime, extra effort, big wins and tuition reimbursement is a myth.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't listen.


  10. Unstable

    Pros

    Some managers are good, and most co-workers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Senior Managers disappear from the company with little to no advance warning or comments from other senior managers.

    Advice to Management

    They should review how employees are treated.


  11. Great first job out of college, but that's about it

    good location nice people easy job flexible hours gym across the street

    Cons

    no career growth no recognition not enough pay for the amount of work/bs to deal with not easy to work with people in the Dallas office not allowed to "work from home"

    Advice to Management

    more professionalism
