Advice to ManagementAdvice

They always talk about the good stuff happening in the company but they don't about the difficult or bad stuff. Need to figure out the company structure and explain to employees what all the restructuring is about.

    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.

    Great business model, bad politics

    Pros

    Very successful company with a bright future, thanks to a rock-solid business model and killer sales team.

    Cons

    As it's matured, the start-up vibe has definitely been lost, and a more "corporate" feel has set in. This was perhaps inevitable, but the political games didn't have to be.
