The Company Has Lost It

I have been working at Medidata Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Once a great company.
Nice offices
If your the flavor of the day, or from California, you might do well here.

Cons

You cannot figure out who is going to get fired next. This company has let go some seriously skilled and knowledgeable core staff that has made the company the success it is today. Why fire great people once you find them if you’re a growing company? What is the signal being sent to other aspiring staff members? This company has no conscious of the lives and families they are disrupting on their way to try to be successful.
The message is be quiet and don’t stand out because if you do, you might be the next one to get the boot. Getting fired used to mean that you weren't doing your job, that’s not what it means at Medidata.
The company has hired some new executive HR staff and empowered them, when they don’t understand basic business values (play nice).
I would advise anyone to stay away from this company unless your unemployed and desperate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to basics. Get rid of the head of HR.

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive, but you pay in your soul.

    Cons

    In the past year and 3 months, the company has taken a serious turn for the worse. The environment has become hostile and many employees are in fear of loosing their job, if they haven't already.

    The Product development team suffers from poor leadership at the top. The Product itself has significant quality and reliability issues as can be confirmed by the customer base. The software development team can not get organized in order to fix significant problems with the application, and the customer suffers.

    The Executive team can not seem to hire talented leaders to pull the company together. The recent effort has backfired on the Executive team and there will be a price to pay very shortly.

    Unfortunately, the customer base will feel most of the pain for misguided, unqualified leadership throughout the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure the Executive management team is even listening, but in a nut shell, take a step back and start over!!!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Medidata Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation packages are excellent; laid back attitude; open to new ideas; embraces innovation in their core infrastructure; corporate promises are actually realized in corporate policies (e.g. they walk the walk)

    Cons

    None, that I've experienced so far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Transparency and genuine interest in the welfare of your employees is important and evident in how you operate!
