    Pros

    Employees have a strong sense of commitment and are willing to invest the time it requires to get things right. Trade-offs in investments make sense. Products are evolving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains, people shifting from team to team between releases can cause churn in the cross-functional work that spans release cycles.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on driving new business, continue investing in quality and innovation initiatives.

    Pros

    If you can't get a job at Microsoft this might be a building block for a junior engineer

    Cons

    Leadership is clueless about the market and are ego maniacs, customers hate the product, they are burning through cash like crazy, market is a commodity play with vendors already with traction and a real-architecture

    Advice to Management

    Keep spinning and maybe you will find another job before GE and Microsoft pull the plug on you jokers

    Pros

    After several years of head's down work to bring together a portfolio of meaningful applications in the population health space Caradigm has started to get some real traction with new customers. Caradigm is working hard to forge strong relationships with these customers which will pay off in the long run. Services teams are working hard to install at these customers and it will be exciting to see what sort of results they're able to achieve.

    Cons

    Like all organizations there are growing pains to ramp up for a variety of installations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on what matters - successful customers!

    Pros

    High profile market, good resume builder

    Cons

    Overpromise & Under deliver too often

    Advice to Management

    Wake up & smell the Starbucks. Need to address serious issues & right the ship. New, realistic expectation need to be set for investors, employees & customers. Partnerships are failing, Product dev is slow, Sales are off, Customer satisfaction is low. GE & Microsoft need to commit more time and money.

    Pros

    Pros - very good compensation/benefits, some nice people

    Cons

    Cons - extremely weak/political leadership (exceptions --Services, Regulatory Affairs, HR), no accountability, no transparency, marginal (at best) products, empty customer promises and company values, overwhelmed engineers (mass exodus), dissatisfied customers, and scary lack of sales. The CEO is too afraid to address problems hence none exist. Executives protect their kind and manage their own careers and images. Company culture hard to pin down --maybe the worst from GE (inflated egos masking ineptitude) and Microsft (supremely nasty & aggressive/hostile behavior). If you want to succeed at this company, better drink up the company koolaid: convince yourself Sales will sell something, products will be delivered, customers will buy and be satisfied, and the CEO will start focusing on things that matter. This company won't be around in another 6-8 months unless things get a whole lot better fast. GE might take the reins and fold it back in. Might be better to just fold it and put everyone associated out of their misery.

    Advice to Management

    get your heads out of the sand and look around, tap people in the ranks to solve problems

    Pros

    Some really strong engineers and people with passion really trying to make a difference.

    Cons

    Lack of clear direction, with unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Start living the company values. "Selling futures" isn't in alignment with any value the company has. And, focus with realistic expectations.

    Pros

    Caradigm is doing something special in healthcare, it is always great to work for a company with strong mission, but what is even more important is Caradigm's people. The sense of team work and helping each other be successful is very rewarding.

    Cons

    When one is delivering on a mission, usually means work-life balance is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep selling
