    I have been working at Extension full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The diversity of people, projects, and customers is refreshing. This is a high growth company in a high growth market. There is a national patient safety goal released by The Joint Commission in 2013 which will fast track many sales opportunities to support even more growth now through the end of 2016. Leadership creates a culture of being open minded and ready to change when necessary.

    Cons

    Growth causes stress and a requirement to be flexible. Sometimes plans and programs stop before they get started. Immature documentation.

    I worked at Extension full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had great co-workers at Extension who all tried to give their very best. They were very smart people from the healthcare industry who all brought a rich background to the team.

    Cons

    The leadership at Extension is very poor. They don't have a good understanding of clinical needs or workflow nor do they listen to feedback from clinical team members or clinical customers users to improve the product. No one wants to hear that the baby is ugly. The product is currently half developed and more unstable at every release. I close my eyes and hope for the best whenever we did a deployment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers and those with clinical knowledge regarding improvements needed to the product. Reward excellent employees and incent them to stay rather than beating them over the head with employment agreements to scare them into staying.

    Pros

    EXTENSION is a fast-passed, quickly growing company with leading edge technology. Management makes each employee feel cared for and let's them know how much each individual person means to the company.

    Cons

    Company was established in 2009, it is a small company, but quickly growing. Currently in the transition to becoming something great. There's just a lot of steps in order to do this. Some things do tend to not get properly communicated right away like they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intelligent, thoughtful and caring for their employees.

    Being on the cutting edge of technology is great! There is serious passion and accountability for what we are trying to accomplish here!

    Cons

    The company is growing really fast! It's a challenge to keep names and new faces straight all the time! We've doubled our space and our staff over the last year!
