Current Employee - Software Engineer IV in Nashville, TN

I have been working at Emdeon full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

1. Benefits are decent and quick to get 3 weeks of vacation time
2. Lots of cool technology to play around with.
3. Could be a good stepping stone into a great career, but not remain here.

Cons

1. Employee evaluation and raises process is poor, and de-motivational (fit a bell curve).
2. They talk the talk about excellence, but this is not the culture, no rewards for consistently doing things in the best interests of the company, eventually makes you stop swinging for the fences and settle into mediocrity.
3. Constant fear of being replaced with contractors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the effort to re-culture the company and its products, in-spite of the turmoil that it brings, but do it quickly and get the company back onto a stable path.

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

    Pros

    There are some good people that work here who are committed to their jobs and willing to work long and hard hours to hit their objectives. Emdeon is profitable and has significant market share for their industry. Pay is good, often very good depending on the role.

    Cons

    Long hours, limited resources, unreasonable goals, environment of fear. Learning and development is poor and disorganized. Training (especially product level) is frequently out of date. Training is often through side by side or finding your own way. Random lay-offs and firings take place with limited communication. Developmental feedback is not part of this culture. Emdeon is a result of many acquisitions who have been allowed to continue to act independently. New leadership is trying to make changes through process improvement but is driving reckless behavior due to management through fear and unreasonable timelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the business before making sweeping changes. Step out and spend some time with your people.

    I have been working at Emdeon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You receive benefits, which is enough to keep me around.

    Cons

    Company is slow and processes are unknown, organic growth is non-existent, company is formed of many acquisitions and company identify is lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of money is wasted on consulting companies and we keep laying off employees. Strategy needs to be formed soon, so we can grow the company. New CEO was hired in fall of 2013 and things seem to be running the same.
