I have been working at MedAssets full-time

Pros

Getting new office building and CEO says we are putting in pharmacy medical clinic volleyball court and other conveniences - but can we even afford if we cant hire the staff we need?
Benefits are ok

Cons

Many of my coworkers and staff have left or are leaving. Very high turnover because we cant get the resources we need to service our customers.
(update on my previous comment: i was told his was public information but i cant find the data on the internet anywhere so am deleting the comments on the cost of the private plane. If anyone can provide a link to this info so i can validate i will repost. For now i retract the info on the $2 million dollar expense in 2011.)
Hear more about chief officer doing charity work, going to Olympics, being seen on cnbc, fox, bloomberg, stock exchange, ect. or training cage fighters than running our business. Could be funding a lot more charity work if the business was not always in a state of urgent need and desperation to react to bad products and services being delivered.
Chief officers have known that some products that we introduce to customers are shotty for a long time but do nothing about it and require the best PMs to pick up the pieces. They just blame former employees or my favorite "the changing healthcare landscape". A lot of smoke in mirrors is right just like previous posters said.
No accountability at high levels as evidence by former COO who is still in some confusing high office and any other good company would have replaced poor chief officers long time ago. They get the golden pass everytime while we have to carry out mission impossible to fix their poor decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have some integrity and start doing whats right for our customers, not whats going to save you. This requires real work that can no longer be hidden by acquisitions or charity.

    I have been working at MedAssets full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    We have a ton of very talented people in all departments--and that's really what makes it worth coming in every day. Many excellent leaders in the middle-management ranks, who have made a great deal of progress in a chaotic series of changes at the top levels. Some sharp new people in the mix now near the top, so there is reason to be hopeful that things will stabilize.

    Cons

    Execs at the highest levels are very passionate, but not always very rational--tend to make very rash decisions on seemingly incomplete information. Several years of rotating doors at the SVP/President level have meant constant change in process and operating principles, which makes things difficult (and often wasteful) within the lower ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop asking your talented resources/managers to constantly look backwards, and let them focus on building and delivering good products and services. Decide quickly if you want this to be a software/services company or a consulting company, and let's make decisions appropriately. Get more engaged in setting and articulating long-term strategy.

    Pros

    You can drink at work.

    Cons

    There is no direction. There is a lot of the wrong people getting promoted. Human Resources turns the cheek to inappropriate promotion and good ole' boy mentality. There is no accountability. People can set in the breakroom all day...play pool, ping pong, or Wii. Which is fine if things were being done. Turnaround time on anything is horrible. Product Management is focused on "new enhancements' to the software but what about the things that are wrong like words misspelled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire people who got big promotions because they were someone's roomate in college. Focus on the customer by making employees accountable for not working.
