I worked at Merge Healthcare

Pros

Enjoyed working with the people on my project team, flexible work schedule, Merge has interesting ideas for integrating health IT systems.

Cons

Lack of respect for employees from upper management, who are more concerned about putting on a "show" for customers and the bottom line. Constantly putting strain on development teams due to lack of resources, time, and support. Very unorganized because of all the acquisitions, they need to concentrate on the products they already have.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Throw the employees a bone every now and then. Give them the resources to do their jobs effectively instead of handing out iPads like candy to customers.

    Like tying your feet together, pushing you into a lake and expecting you to swim.

    I have been working at Merge Healthcare

    Pros

    I'm trying to think of just one positive thing to say about Merge Healthcare, but for the life of me, can't think of anything, other than working with some very talented health IT developers.

    Cons

    No resources. No resources. No resources. Loud mouths. Yelling. Scary derrieres. Lots of swear words. Lots of threats and the F-word used frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hurry and sell this company to Allscripts, or other player who really knows what they are doing in the healthcare IT space. Puh-leeeeeease!

    I worked at Merge Healthcare

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Decent people working. Helps you grow tougher skin. Some of the execs are nice. I heard that canadian offices are nice.

    Cons

    Arrogant sales execs, disrespectful owner. Employees are at the bottom of the company's list of concerns. It will throw tons of money on shiny trinkets, flatscreens in every corner, new laptops and free iPads to sales, while developers work on 5+ year old laptops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees a bit more. You don't need to pamper them like you do your customers, but some recognition would be nice
