I have been working at Meditech full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The company offers excellent job security and a fantastic work life balance.

Cons

Individuals have very little control over their own careers and as a result, for those with serious ambition and drive, their careers move MUCH slower than they would like. To compound the issue, Meditech does not pay a competitive salary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay tenured employees a salary that is competitive with what the rest of the industry would pay. There are too many sacrifices required in terms of lost wages and career opportunities to keep the people you should want to keep.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -The benefits
    -Meditech is willing to teach you from the ground up and the learning atmosphere is very relazed - and catered to teaching you. There is no pressure or tests or anything, just an entire group of people that really wants you to succeed. The overall environment is very relaxed, casual and young. And the management is always willing to help you to achieve your long term career goals, as long as they are at meditech...

    Cons

    The salary - it is not competitive at all with other similar companies.
    The company places a stigma on anyone that tries to advance their career by leaving (and receiving a better company). When quitting, the employee is asked to leave that day (unless they have a customer training the next week). And if they are asked to stay, the staff makes you feel bad for leaving to advance your career. Almost no one has ever been hired back to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to give a modest salary in the initial year after someone is hired. But once someone has proven their loyalty and learned their application, give them an initial raise (after their first year) that makes their salary comparable to other HCIS companies - the turnover would greatly decrease if people felt as though they were getting compensated for their time - especially with 50-75% travel.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    >Great work/life balance
    >Lots of opportunity to take classes geared at growing your knowledge of the MT Product and your own personal growth
    >Plenty of opportunities to take on projects somewhat early
    >The people working at MEDITECH are great

    Cons

    >The pay is low to start off, and while it does grow each year the growth is small and so you will need to be patient
    >The company has become mid-sized and so it is a bit awkward in that it does not offer the multitude of lateral options for movement that a big company has and it also does not feel as "familiar" as a small company might.
    >Promotion and movement in the company can take some time, depending on the group you join it can also feel as though there is resistance to it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    >Focus more energy into being sure that lower management is mature and professional in their dealings with new hires. Because MEDITECH is smaller, and because it only promotes from within, often times employees that excel in their position will be rewarded with a promotion to a management position that they are not a fit for. This causes not only an issue for this person who wil struggle with the new responsibility, but also for the new hires who are more keen to back out quickly if they do not like what they see.
