Wonderful company to work for!

Imaging Management Clerk (Former Employee)
West Lafayette, IN

I worked at MED Institute full-time for more than a year

ProsWhen I started at MED, I knew very little about medical imaging, the department I'd be working in. My supervisor took the time to teach me about human anatomy, medical imaging and of course, the ways of MED. By the time I left MED to have my first baby, I felt very proficient in my field.

ConsI can think of none at this time.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management at MED has been chosen because they are brilliant at what they do. I have no advice to give them at this time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Odd company culture in a beautiful building

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
West Lafayette, IN

I have been working at MED Institute full-time for more than a year

ProsA lot of good people work here, which makes the environment pleasant. The cafeteria serves delicious meals. The building and office space are very nice.

ConsThe management is poor and does not have vision. Personal biases dictate promotions not competency and qualifications. Salaries are below average and raises are small.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the teams with high turn over, find the common denominator and deal with that person. You lose good employees every year because of a bad boss.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Work Environment

Research Engineer (Former Employee)
West Lafayette, IN

I worked at MED Institute full-time for more than a year

ProsLove the support from everyone there. I would highly recommend MED. You get instant access everything you need to succeed in your assignments. Lunches are also a plus...

ConsSenior management can be nonexistent. Project goals are far from set in stone. If you don't ask, you will not receive

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be afraid to ask what is going on when you don't know.

Great employees, great company focus.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
West Lafayette, IN

I have been working at MED Institute

ProsPart of a great larger private organization that truly cares about patients rather than the bottom line. Sharp and friendly employees, lots of opportunities to learn. No real "titles", which can be a good thing. Great job security with a private company.

ConsI'd say the pros far outweigh the cons. Although career advancement opportunities are not well defined, management is willing to accommodate movement within the larger organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementRaises don't seem to be based on anything tangible. Since there are few "advancement" opportunities, some sort of true merit based system would be great.

So-so. Needs better leadership.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
West Lafayette, IN

I worked at MED Institute

ProsCompany has good "bones." Very nice, very smart employees. Management does not micromanage. Great work environment--lots of fun, lots of resources, great cafeteria (cheap, too) and gym on-site. Lots of brilliant minds in one building. Commitment to quality and ethical business practice is taken very seriously.

ConsNo plan in place to help employees make a "career" out of employment at MED. And if you are a good employee who does an exceptional job, you're rewarded with more work and no pay increase. Upper management is completely out of touch with its employees. Stale leadership, rampant with "we do it this way because that's the way we've always done it"--time to get some new, vibrant, business-minded people in to bring MED up to pace with the rest of the industry. Listen to your employees and take their feedback seriously and into action. Show that you care about what they have to say.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink outside the box. Growth is good and requires change for the better. Work on keeping good employees. Give them motivation to stay and contribute more, while rewarding them with better pay, more vacation, etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Ok for beginning experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at MED Institute as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood casual environment
People are nice

ConsNo structure.
Everyone is always chasing for credit.
Employees are too busy with their own projects to care about the performance of interns.
They say you can approach them, but when you do they just tell you to go "figure it out."

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more structure.
Have a plan and expectation for new interns.
Tell employees to do work instead of coming in late and playing on their iphones.
