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

Pros

The salary, the salary, and the salary. People take jobs here and stay here because leaving means, in most cases, a paycut. Despite people talking up how hard they're working in Costanza-fashion, employees rolling in late and skating out early is not uncommon. Benefits have gone from mediocre to good over the years--an inverse trend. As with any bad company, there are some solid worker-bees here. Nice building also, though it's all cubicles that range from small to smaller to smallest.

Cons

Working at MedImpact means giving up your soul along with any hope of job satisfaction whatsoever. You're basically whoring yourself out for the money. The company just can't seem to hire competent managers on any level. Every few years they fire everyone in management and start over, and each time the new regime is as bad or worse than the last. If you're passionate about your work this is about the worst place imaginable to be. No one wants help you out, silos are iron-clad, and micromanagment, backstabbing, and credit-taking is the name of the game. Communication from Senior leadership with employees is laughable--a couple worthless Office Space-esque all-hands meetings and that's it. The HR department is the worst I have seen in any company. Employee appreciation of any kind is nonexistent. Layoffs are not uncommon as the PBM business as a whole is just not as lucrative as it used to be, and Fred and friends have a lifestyle to maintain--which means the threat of the axe is always there. If you can put all pride and soul aside though, it's a more-than decent paycheck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

MedImpact's reputation on the street is so baked-in there's probably nothing that can be done at this point (not that there's ever been a real show of desire to improve things). Quality management candidates pass on MedImpact, despite the pay, as routine.

    Pros

    Top pay in the industry

    Cons

    Lots of office politics. Associates not motivated by values of company as they are not clearly defined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inspire ownership in associates by offering stock options again and the ability to submit ideas directly to senior management.
