Individually everyone's great but there's a lot of broken promises

I have been working at Medidata Solutions full-time for more than a year

Pros

A lot of the people are friendly and nice to work with. Socialising is fun and the new office is great.

Cons

Management make promises and then backtrack on them. Teams are constantly being reorganised so no-one really knows who to speak to about certain things. Pay rises are next-to-nothing and trying for a promotion is also like herding cats.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Agile works with a small company with a young product, but that's not who Medidata is now; stop shuffling everybody around and let us get on with it. Also: provide routes for personal advancement.

    Pros

    Great location, you get to play with a Mac if you join the right team! You will even get to ride your bike to work :).

    Cons

    Lack of direction, constant restructuring, people being reshuffled. Literally every 6 months a new team is being formed with a different name. Reporting hierarchy is frequently changed or even reversed! If senior management doesn't like you personally, they'll give you hell. Some managers act completely out of line. Some are absolute imbeciles and it's a wonder how they got where they did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick with it. It's unhealthy to constantly change direction, change priorities, rename teams, reshuffle people, start projects and never finish them.
