    Pros

    Great technology, excellent product, very smart and talented people to support you and work with. Smart and hard-working leadership. Fast paced, high-visibility environments -- installing, managing and optimizing mission-critical IT systems for Healthcare organizations. Great career opportunities in US and international

    Cons

    High-pressure environments can be stressful and require long hours, lots of travel required for client consulting roles. Most roles are based in Kansas City - so career advancement could require you to relocate to KC, CEO Neal Patterson is brash and controlling and is known to belittle employees in public forums

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on building and enhancing the technology, keep pace with modern IT systems, offer alternatives to Oracle, improve client support services and resolutions, always show respect for your hard-working employees in public settings (eh'em... Neal Patterson)
