Good recognition, but not for bright programmers...there's better work elsewhere. Poor senior management.

Pros

Programmers are trained well for the job they are supposed to do. You're paid for the training. The company is flexible and supervisors and managers are very understanding.

Cons

The pay is very sub-par, compared to other companies with similar jobs. Not all employees get along well. I feel that a good deal of the employees seem to be undertrained in what they are supposed to do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are some major changes that are needed on the lower end of the scale. I'm slowly watching the staff dwindle, whether it be transferring within the company or leaving the company. At this point, I think some serious changes are needed to redistribute work more evenly.

    A very solid place to work....especially if you don't want work to consume your life completely.

    Pros

    Very good benefits package that includes health/dental, profit-sharing plan and generous bonus program. You don't feel like management is constantly pushing for you to stay late and work overtime, which allows for a nice regimented work week. Hospital software in general is a stable enterprise, but Meditech's outstanding reputation amongst hospitals throughout the US, Canada and overseas means that your job is secure.

    Cons

    Disconnect between middle management and lower employees can be frustrating. Not many low level employees can tell you what their manager does on a day-to-day basis due to them being tied up in meetings for the vast majority of time. Currently, there is not enough staff to meet the growing demands of our customer-base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat lower-level employees as people....not statstics or numbers. Robots aren't doing the work....people are.

    A hell for bright programmers.

    Pros

    Meditech is a good place to get entry-level experience (sort of, see caveat in next section). The majority of hires are fresh out of college with no experience whatsoever. If you're on the younger side you'll appreciate the large number of similarly-aged peers.

    Cons

    Pay is grossly below industry averages for your first several years of employment. For developers you're getting experience, but development is done with proprietary languages so you aren't really gaining much value on the open market. The languages used are vastly behind the times--they are significantly less powerful than nearly any modern language. Also, many standard software development practices are practiced poorly, or ignored entirely (source control, automated unit testing). Additionally, all employees are given fifteen inch monitors. Yes, developers too. Programmers beware: if you're into computer science and modern software development you WON'T be happy here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring only entry level folks creates a vacuum of new ideas. By the time someone has the POWER to change something, they've been fully indoctrinated into the Meditech way of doing things. No one with 5 years of experience will join the company, so you don't have anyone who has seen a better way of doing things to kick and scream to point out the crazy parts of our processes.
