Pros

Like all growing companies, Medidata is struggling to find its workplace identity. Trying to keep good talent and clean out legacy workers is a constant challenge and for the most part they have been successful. The workplace, the job, and the processes are constantly evolving keeping the job interesting, but you need to enjoy that type of environment. If you don't like change, then this place is definitely not for you.

Cons

Trying to maintain a good work/life balance is difficult. Accountability for failure to delivery is sometime part on the wrong people. Goals can be out of sync with true needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sometimes sacrificing delivery times for quality is required. Keep pace in a technology/innovation driven industry is already difficult, but it can be exacerbated by not achieving a quality that the clients demand. Avoid setting delivery time goals to achieve a higher level of quality.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere. Work from home. Some fun and great people. Parties at fancy locations. Fast-paced with always something to keep busy.

    Cons

    Upper management is not always transparent with communication. Nepotism and favoritism from personal relationships with management. Fiscally cheap in the wrong areas. Must understand office politics to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency on what is being accomplished by management. Quick review meetings with staff on progress and performance. Redefine exact goals. Smartly invest in areas to improve client experience. Cut back in areas where cost is incommensurate with expected results.

    Pros

    This is an innovative, cool place to work. People are smart and talented and passionate about what they do. Great company parties and employee get-togethers - people enjoy hanging together. Management is respectful of employees and there's no discrimination or politics like at other companies. People get promoted if they deserve it. HR is supportive of employees and has a focus on training and career advancement. Good pay and benefits. Most of the executives are actually cool people. Glad I found this place!

    Cons

    -Communication - there needs to be more communication from the senior executives about vision, progress, where we are.
    -Because of the growth, some of the offices are crowded.
    -Because of the growth, there's a lot of work for some groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More company meetings (can be virtual meetings). Keep the benefits where they are and don't cut like other companies. There are a few negative slackers - get them out. Rent more office space.
