Pros

Mediware's corperate policies are aimed to providing a positive balance between work and personal time, and the company has very good benefits from time off to its health plan. The company also keeps it's technical equipment upto date making it relatively easy to keep up in the ever changing feild of technology.

Cons

Absolutely no documentation for the software. Reliance on senior member's for assistance is frowned upon so new developers are often left out to figure things out for their own or fail quickly and find themselves without a job. The senior management also enjoy playing games with their employees to add additional levels of stress that are generally not required; this includes pitting employees against one another or a manager in order to ensure that employee's and managers have the right skills for their jobs. Manager's consistantly give conflicting orders and then accuse one another of trying to over ride the other, in the end the employee following the orders is punished because ultimately they were wrong for following the wrong instructions. Software produced for customer's is commonly sold to them before the software has ever even hit the design process.

Advice to Management

Please resign and allow for new individuals to take over and reshape your company. You have for years failed to achieve anything other then revenue, and while this is overall good for bussiness in the short run, when you run out of people who are capable of actually supporting your company's forward momentum you will fail.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    VERY Good Work/Life balance. Management is very receptive to the need for a life outside of work and encourages its employees to take care of their personal matters. Fairly casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very little technical documentation which can be very frustrating for new developers starting out, and apparently there is little effort being put forth to rectify that situation. Very many other nuances that just add strife to the life of a developer.

    Advice to Management

    Documentation, Documentation, Documentation. There needs to be a streamlined process outlining system design decisions, the schema and layout of the data, as well as a one-stop shop for coding standards so as to encourage uniformity in the code base for maintenance sake.

    I worked at Mediware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance. Some good benefits.

    Cons

    Still sticking to older technologies. The one's they upgrade still carry over the evils of older generation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your ears and eyes open. Stop the close door culture. Promote employee engagement.
