I have been working at Caradigm full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Building its bed with MSFT base and siphoning the talent from their degrading pool.

Cons

The lack of corporate integrity and lack of insight into the market they claim to serve. Not a leader but a follower that tries to make bread from bread crumbs. Smoke and mirrors tactics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the healthcare space and fire the corporate execs who are profiting from this venture at the expense of the healthcare market place and the technical staff who are over-worked and poorly invested in.

    Pros

    Great space they are working in
    good young folks and seem to have passion for healthcare
    good health benefits

    Cons

    Management is crap and no one has any experience running a startup. They have run big divisions inside GE and Microsoft, but no one has bonafide experience running a startup like company
    They are just confused between GE and Microsoft folks, and lot of politics and land grab
    The engineers who come from GE are substandard compared to folks from Microsoft side, so there is lot of mistrust.
    Pay and Perks are not good for new folks joining in. Folks who came from Microsoft made out a lot, and still are very highly paid compared to others in the company
    Too many senior people with not enough work(everyone is a director or VP with no work), so if you want to join for career development, forget it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can prune half the middle management and the company will still run fine. Way too much dead wood hiding in middle management. It is crazy to count the number of VP's and Directors in this company. Bring people who have worked in startup companies and run this ship.

    Pros

    great benefits and some awesome people

    Cons

    Abysmal senior exec team that can't make decisions or execute. Worse is the shocking lack of interest in making decisions or executing- combined w/ no willingness to see warts. No accountability. VPs always out of office - never around. Maybe they're making the most of it before the place is shut down. And don't offer your opinion even when they ask - will bite ya.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the rank & file who want to make a positive impact. Fire executives not capable of doing their jobs: 90% of leadership.
