    I worked at MDI Achieve as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Challenging, plenty to learn; room for development, growth, and taking on additional responsibilities.
    -Good pay and benefits.
    -Generous PTO.
    -Great managers.
    -Employees really care about the work that they're doing and support the company's mission.

    Cons

    Work-life balance could be a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize work-life balance more. Make more of an effort to convert dedicated contract employees to full-time roles.

    I worked at MDI Achieve (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to grab up several business and incorporate them into the MDI Achieve umbrella.

    Cons

    Inability to protect data and advance products. The flagship product is the only one that gets minimal attention.
    Your data is not safe with a company that has never changed their master passwords for their offerings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure it would help this company, they do not listen. If they did, the stuff I complained about above would have been addressed (as it was communicated to the CIO/CEO level)

    I worked at MDI Achieve full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really nice people, good environment, helpful and knowledgeable. I would have stayed with them if personal reasons didn't have to take me elsewhere. Lots of vacation time!

    Cons

    Not familiar with the new office, so there is no opinion on that location.

    I have been working at MDI Achieve full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They are in the correct industry. Currently largest LTC software providers in North America. Employees stay for many years. Average employees are there between 6-8 years with some notable being there ver 15+ years. Small organization with a good VP who manages almost the entire US operations. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Little room for growth. Management lacks looking beyond their buddies for potential opportunities. Huge drinking culture. Current managers keep a close door policy and reprimand for exposing their hush hush matters. Send spys through close contacts at LTC clients to find ways to beat competitors. Department leaders are young pretty boys and girls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at committed employees who have helped the company grow. A new frat boy style management culture is evolving where all buddies and colleagues from 'one department' have taken management roles. The new president needs to ease-off on using football as an example for any new strategy or business model.

    I have been working at MDI Achieve

    Pros

    Some of the best reason to work at MDI Achieve (new name), good benefits and team enviroment is supported.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working at MDI Achieve (new name), mid and upper management displays low client retention efforts which advancement in opportunities are based. Too many aquisitions of smaller companies which causes the management team be more reactive than proactive.

    I have been working at MDI Achieve

    Pros

    The work is challenging. The industry is in constant change and the variety of issues is constantly changing. Definitely not a dull or stagnant job. Allows opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    Integration of multiple companies into one cohesive company has been poorly handled. Messages sent from management have been hollow and lack follow through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the gaps between the products then work on moving the client bases to the flagship product. Review existing procedures as they have great room for improvement. Things really don't have to as complicated as they are made to be. Too many people involved at all levels. Listen to management from all levels and tenures.

    Dealing with a lot of inherited issues from acquired companies and their products, but paying attention to them so customers are not negatively affected.
