    Pros

    This company truly cares about each individual employee. Cultural attributes of being humble, hard working, and smart are valued here. The company gives me time to strengthen my skill set and "sharpen the saw." Family and work life balance is extremely great here. Management is filled with highly capable and smart people who continue to lead this company to great success.

    Cons

    The only challenges I've faced while working here have been with individual employees. I have experienced very prideful people who don't take feedback well and who are not team players. Those individuals were a drag on the department and have since left. You must be a team player who can positively take feedback from others to succeed at any company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the employees who don't fit the culture. Catalyst tends to be extremely forgiving when it comes to giving people the benefit of the doubt. It is great to see Catalyst being so nice, but sometimes can be drain on a department. Find a better process to weed out those who don't fit the culture and be open to letting them go if they aren't humble enough to change; don't wait for them to leave.

    Pros

    Health Catalyst is mission-driven with a positive culture and is filled with smart, hardworking and humble co-workers
    solving a critical problem with the industry's best solution. There is talent and depth in each functional area of the company.

    Cons

    One challenge for myself and many others is finding a way to maintain work/life balance through the rapid growth phase the company is experiencing. Also, it will be challenging to maintain the positive culture amid significant expansion in hiring. Further, as the company adds more customers, it will be a challenge to keep success and satisfaction levels where they have historically been. I believe the company will do it, though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep focus on the culture and on customer success.

    I have been working at Health Catalyst full-time

    Pros

    The culture is phenomenal! All employees are treated with respect and are encouraged to be hard working and humble, which the leadership team truly exemplifies. Everyone is encouraged to take an ownership approach to problem resolution to ensure the all are successful.

    Cons

    Not really a con...growing rapidly and the organization is handling it very well. Anyone working at Health Catalyst, or hoping to work, needs to be flexible and adaptable to the rapid changes taking place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company values and principles are truly practiced and the culture is great! Keep doing what you are doing! Health Catalyst is great and a very successful and bright future is certain as long as these values remain the center of focus.

    Pros

    - Almost everyone here lives by the company culture of being smart, hard working, and humble.
    - Health Catalyst encourages everyone that they work to live, not live to work
    - Their benefits are amazingly good. PTO through the roof, health/fitness reimbursements, team building exercises, quarterly company dinners/events

    Cons

    - Exponentially growing company is great, but a little might lose the nice small company feel where everybody knows everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Great location
    Staff are positive
    Good ETL tool for small hospitals

    Cons

    Typical response to problem is blame
    Group think
    Little desire to accept others opinions
    Products don't scale
    Products are built on other products, so chain of failure is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to focus less on sales and stock value and more on actual products and projects

    Pros

    The company is growing like crazy. Free munchies in the break room. Competitive salary. Incredible sales team.

    Cons

    Expansion happening so quickly that there is no leadership.
    Sales team is so effective they can sell any product, even if it does not yet exist. IT then has to make it exist, regardless of the pitfalls. Defects in products have to be patched by implementation teams, who are then scolded for patching. Terrible communications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle tier management is dropping the ball. Too few technical people are now in charge, and we technical people are having to drive all decisions and do the coding ... Time to stop and re-think our strategy.

    Pros

    Very nice people from the CEO down to the newest person hired. Everybody stopped by to say hi and introduced themselves to me. Workers are really smart, and hard-working yet they are the humblest group of workers! The company has so much potential. The company has genuinely shown to me that they really do care of their employees!!! I love it!

    Cons

    No cons seen, all positive experience for me!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue being humble and stay as nice as you are now in treating your employees! Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    A company that is dedicated to improving the healthcare industry. Leaders and employees are unified in this goal.

    none so far. They are growing quickly, so normal growing pains of figuring out how to adjust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. Never lose the core values that helped make the company great.
