I worked at HealthStream full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Friendly people. Salary is market for most positions. Interesting building with a couple of restaurants. Nice gym that company will pay a percentage

Cons

Noticed that the friendliness has eroded. Employees have been begging for a 401k plan and employee stock for a long time but keep hearing that the C-suite will 'look into it". kinda cheap for a company with 65m+ in cash. Noticed that sub-par employees keep getting hired i.e. bringing in buddies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get away from the attitude if it isn't broke; dont fix it

    I worked at HealthStream full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It is really easy to be an "overachiever" by just doing your job. Unfortunately, the reality is most employees don't, and if you have any sort of work ethic whatsoever, you will find yourself picking up the slack of others.

    So, maybe, no pros...

    Cons

    Limited experience by senior IT management means limited exposure to different methodologies. They see themselves as industry leaders, but fear the unknown and operate within a very tightly defined sphere of knowledge.

    There are several instances where sub-standard work is acceptable and sometimes rewarded because of personal relationships between managers and direct reports.

    Annual review process is subjective & annual increases are negligible.

    Extremely weak benefit package. No 401(k) match, although it is requested by employees time and again when executive team asks what they can do to make HSTM a better place to work. PTO is weak.

    Specific to IT - there is virtually no room for professional growth. While it is possible to come in entry level and be promoted, the management is not capable of mentoring or developing job skills they themselves do no possess.

    I have been working at HealthStream full-time

    Pros

    Not a bad place to work. People are nice enough. Benefits and pay are average. Bonus's are quarterly but only 1%. Annual bonus can net about 2%. Easy enought access to I-65. Gym is in Cummins Stataion and can joing at a discount. A few place to eat in the building or walk to the Flying Saucer or the Frist Cafe but other than those choses then you have to drive. Most section managers are good about work/life management and giving time off to take care of personal issues. Revenue growth of the company continues to grow but research a bit deeper and you will find that it may be due too luck more so than sound strategy.

    Cons

    If you have to travel then be prepared to pay out of your own pocket although HR says it's a quick turn around; do not believe it. This is a SaaS company and not a true healthcare company. Several areas are understaffed especially in IT so do not expect immediate help although MIS tries really hard. I would not recommend this company to anyone who wants to grow professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management has been lucky to date in that Healthstream enjoy about a 40% piece of the market. but don't get too comfortable.
