I worked at Meditech

Pros

Meditech is a name to conjure with. Because of its unique technology and large market share, there is a large aftermarket for Meditech IT specialists and consultants. Also, it is one of the very few places today where (at this writing) lifetime employment is a real possibility. If that is important to you, this is a company to consider.

Cons

This is a very patriarchal, paternalistic company that takes care of you as long as you say yes or nothing at all and do your job. The quality of your experience depends on your lower level management. My supervisors were among the best I've ever had, but most supervisors and lower level management just don't have the experience to be good at their jobs. Despite the emphasis on lifetime employment, starting salaries and benefits are unimpressive. I feel sorry for Neil--the founder and still top man. He desperately needs someone to tell him when he's wrong, but in a privately-held and patriarchal company, that kind of advice is hard to get. It's not as bad as some people say, but it could be a great deal better. Someone said you shouldn't think of Meditech as a poorly-paid job, but as a well-paid internship. If you don't want a lifetime gig, there's something in that attitude.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You could do so much better with all the resources you have, Neil. It's time to join the 21st century before someone takes advantage of all the self-inflicted weaknesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more training for your employees. Reward the people who are working hard with more training and salaries so they will stay.
    Provide more training for your managers and supervisors.
    Some managers and supervisors lack the maturity and experience necessary

    I have been working at Meditech

    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 ManagementAdvice

    provide challenge and better compensation
