    Pros

    Family atmosphere. Great Benefits and plenty of opportunities to grow. Opportunities to work remote and various shifts.

    Cons

    The location of the new offices are a little far if you live in Nashville or surrounding areas. Traffic also will delay your commute if you work a regular 8-5 job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the family atmosphere.

    I have been working at Healthcare Management Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are just starting out in your career, HMS is usually willing to underpay and train staff in their unique methods.

    Cons

    Pay scales below the norm for Middle Tennessee. When Tom Stephenson (long-time employee and president) left the company several years ago, quality and communication began to break down and has yet to recover. The product no longer focuses on customer retention or patient safety; instead reacts based on the wishes of two large corporate clients. Used to be employee-owned with regular financial reports and long-term goal transparency, but times definitely changed.

    Many managers are promoted from within but never given the training or skills to be successful in a management role. Any experienced leaders hired from outside tend to leave the company within the first year - not a good sign. No company bonuses in several years, and many recent layoffs have their long-term employees scrambling for new opportunities.

    Laughable internal education and lack of any employee retention programs or career advancement make this a company to avoid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out your identity (HMS, HealthTech, MedHost?!?) and rewrite your company vision statement and values. Then communicate to the employees, and HONOR THEM!

    Former Employee - Multiple Jobs Over 7 Years in Nashville, TN
    Former Employee - Multiple Jobs Over 7 Years in Nashville, TN

    I worked at Healthcare Management Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you like to travel, the implementation and demonstration and sales areas are frequent fliers. Most of the employees are great folks to work with.

    Cons

    Poor knowledge transfer when someone leaves. Re-invent the wheel every time. No loyalty to long term, productive employees with excellent annual reviews. Management is disassociated with the front line employees and have no clue what they demand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on an education department that has a clear mandate to transfer knowledge, keep track of trends and develop a real on-boarding process.

    I have been working at Healthcare Management Systems full-time

    Pros

    Great experience and introduction into the Healthcare IT world. Meet a lot of people from all over the country. Travel perks (airline miles, hotel rewards, free car rental days, etc.). Friendly working enviroment.

    Cons

    No flexibility, Downward sales trend has lead to many layoffs, High turnover due to low job satisfaction. Fustrating payroll and accounting departments that effect when you get reimbursed for travel expenses. Pay is not competitive to other companies that have the same job description.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Listent to their opinion regarding client engagements. Stop nickeling and diming when come to reimbursement. Taking shuttle buses to cut back on rental reimbursements is just ridiculous.

    Pros

    Management is constantly harassing employees, they dread coming each day to work
    afraid they will either be fired like all the rest or harassed, its called Micro Management lousy
    way to run a business.

    Cons

    Stressful job to management micro manageing every step you do even though you have been there for 10 plus years, it doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CEO and managers who can relate to their employees and give them the knowlege
    you have their back and give them the reason to come to work within a good atmosphere, not fear of
    loosing their job each day.
