    I have been working at Global Healthcare Exchange full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are still pretty good, but they are actively being reduced. There are still some good people at the lower levels, but many of them are have chosen to leave since the acquisition.

    Cons

    GHX had so much promise and opportunity, but it has been squandered by poor leadership. The acquisition by Thoma Bravo has put the company into major cutbacks. The only plans to grow are through off-shoring and acquisition.

    Do not accept a job at GHX unless you are desperate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please find work at another company, so that a real turn-around can occur.

    Pros

    Leadership has restructured in last 6 months and there are lots of opportunities to shine within the company at the moment. Recent layoffs more a result of too much fat in the company and I see it as a good way to make the company more efficient.

    Cons

    Uncertain future having just been acquired by another firm. Restructuring was a big deal and employees spent several months wondering if more lay offs were to come.

    Pros

    Benefits were relatively good prior to the acquisition. A lot of nice people at the lower levels. Not much else positive one could say...

    Cons

    The CEO embarked on three major initiatives during the first part of his tenure: expanding internationally, rewriting the core product line and attempting to create a solution to the implantable device market. Due to very poor execution, mostly related to the fact that the leadership of this tech company is comprised of sales people (a bad sign), all of these strategies failed spectacularly. The company, which had been stable and profitable, borrowed tons of money to finance these moves, and was basically sold to a holding company to get out of that situation. This resulted in mass layoffs, primarily for the rank and file developers. The people responsible for the veritable destruction of this company are all in still in place.

    Developers that had any skill have left; the existing customer base is pretty much the only remaining asset of value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, for the sake of your remaining employees, quit. A lot of good people have already lost their jobs because of your hubris. Step aside and let someone technical take the reins.

    I worked at Global Healthcare Exchange as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great perks from vendors who visit the site, beautiful location, quiet and clean workstation.

    Cons

    No growth opportunity, merger left the company with no vision, terrible management and low turnaround on work. Very limited in focusing on customer service, unsatisfied employees voice their unhappiness openly, low morale. No great incentive to stay, saw many contractors mislead about opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop better training programs, be accountable, and treat people with respect to earn respect.

    Pros

    Good people trying to accomplish important work
    Very good vacation policy
    Very good health benefits
    Beautiful headquarters facility

    Cons

    After the restructure things are still very much in flux... Loyalty of the company for its employees seems non-existent... no actionable plan to stem the attrition of those leaving voluntarily and despite promises otherwise, they have continued to let people go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is only so much positive spin people can hear before they just see it as lies.

    I worked at Global Healthcare Exchange full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Initially great growth opportunities, good benefits and some smart/fun people. I was able to advance my career during my tenure.

    Cons

    Working there felt like a game of chess especially the higher you go in the organization. Seemed like there was a targeted list of people to get out for no good reason other than to take the focus off of others. I started off with a trusting attitude and over time that eroded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to diversify the executive team in terms of gender, ethnicity and experience.
