Pros

I'm reading the other reviews and disagree with the negative ones. Maybe those people weren't or aren't stellar employees and that's why they are complaining. But this is a cool place to work. You work hard, but you learn a lot and work with great coworkers. The company throws amazing parties and coworkers get together outside work on their own. Cool products that mean something to the world. Global company so you meet interesting people. Pay and benefits are way better than the companies i know or that my friends work at. There are growing pains of course but at least the company is growing and they still care about there employees and customers.

Cons

You have to be a flexible person and have a sense of humor. You have to be prepared to work hard and be frustrated sometimes, but that's the story anywhere. They are getting better at having company meetings and more communication other ways too, but more would be good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are creating jobs and a great company to work for. No advice, just keep doing what we are doing and don't worry about the people who just like to complain.

    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.
