Pros

Cutting edge but mature technology, good modern methodologies and great people. Definitely feel like your voice is heard on any issue. Great benefits and company culture, really fun place to work.

Cons

Not many negatives, as others have said with such a large company can be difficult to keep everyone on same page with current best practices. We do try, but it is difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lose the startup vibe!

    Pros

    A 10+ year old company run by the original founders and an unwavering commitment to revolutionize the world of clinical trials.

    Never in my career have I seen people so passionate about bringing drugs and devices into the global market to improve the quality of life for millions of people.

    Other pros in addition to strong leadership:
      * Working with talented peers who challenge and inspire each other
      * Transparency
      * Amazing company parties and other fun after hour social events
      * Cool SaaS technologies like Gmail, Google apps, Jobvite, GitHub, etc.
      * Charitable contributions to causes within the Healthcare industry
      * Contributions to the open source community
      * Career development & opportunities for growth
      * Agile software development and constant delivery of new products
      * Gorgeous new offices in London, NYC, and Tokyo
      * Environemt of constant learning: Brown bag lunches, participation in industry conferences, and many other learning opportunities

    Cons

    Because the company has been growing so quickly over the last ten years (100x growth), some of the processes and people have been unable to keep pace with the changes. You have to be intelligent and passionate about making a difference in clinical trials to be successful at Medidata. If you're not, you will most likely end up in the same boat as the employees writing negative reviews on this website...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never lose your passion for making a difference in clinical trials.

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

    Pros

    This company is growing at an incredible rate and offers a creative, collaborative environment to those who can think on their feet and adapt to change related to best business practices. The founders and most senior executives “walk the talk,” demonstrating their commitment to making this the best place to work in life sciences. Agile employees have the opportunity to offer constructive solutions where there are improvements to be made in processes, systems and interpersonal relationships in a dynamic company. Everyone has a voice, if they are willing to speak up to the right people in the right frame of mind as a part of the solution.

    Cons

    With rapid growth, fledgling companies typically experience growing pains associated with everything from processes to personnel. Medidata is no exception. The incredible rate of growth experienced has contributed to some bottlenecks and practices that require mitigation. These opportunities for improvement are being managed in a variety of ways, but I understand that change doesn't always happen overnight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people are your most important asset. Keep promoting the positive culture you are striving to spread throughout the organization!
