Awesome products, many good people, culture is kind of routine/normal a little boring, but good for family types.

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

Pros

Amazing medical imaging software, some of the very best in the world
Feel good about helping sick people
Some very bright people write software there

Cons

Located in the western burbs so is a long commute for some
Not a lot of room to grow once you hit a certain point - the most interesting work is taken by people who have been there a while.
The mgmt showed a real cutthroat side, and lack of imagination, in 2008 by laying off 40% of the workforce

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Liven up the culture, encourage more innovation by your employees and you'll be surprised by what they can do

    Incredible Opportunity to change the face of healthcare - stifled by conservative management team.

    I worked at Vital Images full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The technology stack, customer base and the engineering and sales teams. All of which are absolutely top tier (other than the Engineering leadership)

    Cons

    The culture and the management team. The profound lack of "getting it" about the asset they have in the engineering team countered by the astounding liabilities they have at the executive levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a risk on something. Anything. You may actually learn something that you don't "already know".

    I worked at Vital Images full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Of all my gigs in my life, this software to me (Vitrea) was the most amazing. I truely was wowed by the potential.

    Cons

    I had a very deceitful bad manager. I was pressured into pipp'ing guys i didn't want to and after saving the company over 50k, demoted. So in the end, i left with a bitter taste. If certain specific people were removed, i would return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None - i think the vision is great. I think what you're doing is fantastic. I was there during cuts, which always stink, but you made it past those.
