Pros

The company is making more investments to improve the employee experience. It has lavish parties, a swanky new office space with a roof deck, game room, and showers, has implemented a new employee stock purchase plan, and allocates a decent amount to professional development. Everyone strives to foster a hard-working, yet fun environment. I can always trust my peers to have my back. I am learning something new every day. It helps that my direct managers are excellent leaders and they always have their door open if I ever need career or any other kind of advice.

Cons

Depending on your department and the people with whom you work, your experience might differ. Sometimes it takes senior management a while to acknowledge it needs changes and also to reward you for your contributions. There does seem to be nepotism involved when people get promoted. In order to get ahead, I've only not had to work extremely hard, but also play the game to be noticed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not everyone is a natural born leader. Some people have to develop their skills; others do not fit the mold. Take strides develop different career paths for leaders vs individual contributors. Put the right people in leadership positions so that they, their subordinates, and the company as a whole can flourish.

    I have been working at Medidata Solutions

    Pros

    Use of modern technology. Pay is towards top of the market. If you are an long-term employee you were probably promoted many times.

    Cons

    Long hours. Too many mid level managers. Sales and Engineering departments matter, the rest are unimportant. Few career paths.

    I don't recommend working at Medidata.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More matters than the stock price. Listen to your employees, not HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They claim they have an open door policy but that is just smoke and mirrors.
