Seems management promoted by tenure, unqualified, poor people management skills.

Listen up or look around. People are not happy. Mass exodus says something!

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

    Pros

    Some really smart people work at MedSeek, but they've been historically limited by layers upon layers of incompetent management.

    I'm not sure what SilverLake understood when they pretty much purchased the place but it seems they realized that they've bought a lemon and they finally decided to clean house. Good luck to them, it will be a lot of work.

    Cons

    Anybody with a technical background or some common sense has been weeded out of the managerial hierarchy in the past few years. Many (Senior) Vice Presidents all over the place and they all seem to think they lead a company the size of Microsoft or something.

    Too many layers of management but nobody wants to take responsibility. The pathetic efforts to build a product on SharePoint have resulted in millions of dollars poured into the toilet.

    Product quality has been dismal for years, due to bad choices, lack of oversight, poor hiring and no long term vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're among those who just got fired, or If you still work there but have been in management since before the purchase, there are only two reasonable career paths for you: become a used car salesman or go flip burgers.

    If you've been put in place by SilverLake, look at what your predecessors did and do the opposite.

    I have been working at MedSeek full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people. For the most part, I love the people I work with. However, people are fearful for their jobs and it is impossible to function effectively when you are afraid of the "tap on your right shoulder". I used to love the culture. Layoffs started last week with qualified, competent workers being let go and others (SVPs, VPs, etc.) choosing to leave voluntarily. Rumors are 25% of the company will be let go within the next several weeks.

    Cons

    The acquisition promised positive changes, expedition of development, and investments in the people, company, and products. So far, we have seen significant culture changes for the worse, lay-offs (with more rounds being threatened), re-organizations, hot-tempered leader(s) brought in by Silverlake, and senior level leaders that use to be within reach, become inaccessible by staff, and increasingly non-transparent. Also, ask anyone (even those in the "group") - there is a good old boys network in place and it is difficult to integrate among them. It's not what you know, but who you know at Medseek. Heard there are power struggles at the top between senior level execs and the investor group which is obviously creating mass instability, chaos, and uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recall the success of the company prior to the acquisition. Eliminate the dead weight, but not the hard working individuals that are attempting to contribute despite the obstacles. Be transparent about the outlook of the company - to clients who are expecting a quicker implementation time than 2 years as well as the employees you are going to keep. Get rid of the new high performance culture bonuses and bring back merit/performance based raises.
