Pros

interesting field/product - healthcare information systems. The challenges/opportunities are always changing, there is never a down day, always busy, but within reason. Great great people to work with - those that hire do a great job! After there for a while, the compensation is very competitive with other similar companies/opportunities.

Cons

slow growth, slow opportunity for promotion

Advice to Management

provide challenge and better compensation

    Pros

    The benefits are fantastic, there's a whole lot of flexibility when it comes to time off, and they do treat employees to nice events (there's a great company picnic annually as well as a great Christmas party). Also, you eat very well as an employee. Lunches, served by a catering company, are great and pretty reasonably priced.

    Cons

    There's very little direction. You are sort of thrown into the water, and you have to figure out on your own how to stay afloat. This can be very difficult for anyone who is new to the medical software industry. It's not easy software to understand; it's unintuitive even to those with great software skills. Also, and I hate to say this, but brown-nosing is often welcomed and frequently rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Work on internal documentation tools, and make it mandatory for all groups to have detailed documentation for new hires. Also, consider better starting salaries; today's economy is very, very demanding on recent college graduates and MEDITECH's pay does not legitimately support young people trying to live in the Boston area. Many, if not most, young employees are forced to get second jobs, meaning they have no days off. There's a great referral bonus program, but unless you are fortunate enough to have several people get hired every year, the incentives don't really help your financial struggle. While you do know your salary before you start, you don't realize how little it does in the Boston area until you move there. Boston is a place where a run-down studio apartment will cost you $900 without any utilities. Before you know it, just your basic living expenses take half of your salary...all for a poor living environment. This employee is not suggesting doubling starting salaries, just increasing them by about 20-25%. You have well-educated employees; reward them by helping them live a little more comfortably. Your retention rate will skyrocket and the overall work environment would improve drastically as people would finally be able to afford having time to themselves. Currently, people are really struggling.

    You won't get fired, but you won't get paid much either.

    Pros

    Meditech provides a stable work environment with a comfortable culture. It is very easy to keep your job at Meditech for 30 years if that is what you desire. Raises and annual bonuses can be a healthy boost to your annual salary. Meditech is good at allowing sick and vacation time when needed.

    Cons

    The compensation is 10% lower than other comparable companies and no retirement programs are offered. Meditech claims that they have a long term employment plan, but I am not so sure about this. There is no human resources department so it is difficult if not impossible to report issues regarding salary, harassment, or discrimination. There is also no documentation available to explain how the employee and salary evaluations are calculated. This, and also the lack of an HR, makes it impossible to argue their evaluation decision with any sense of effectiveness or even being heard.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for exceeding expectations and requirements and do not base raises on future forecasted performance.
