    Hardworking people in a predictable yet technically challenging environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsCurrently transitioning from startup to established business with deeper pockets due to buyout from McKesson. Leadership is willing to tackle the tough issues and fund additional resources as deemed necessary. Always willing to listen to ideas on how to better improve processes and product.

    ConsSome organizational inertia is present due to the sudden increase in company size. Due to rapid expansion of the customer base some of the "house cleaning" type of tasks are suddenly becoming more important after having been neglected for some time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake a roadmap and stick to it. Start tracking metrics that allow the lower level employees to know what they are contributing to the overall business (scorecards that track installs, defects, % contribution to business, etc.).

    Great Place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Westminster, CO

    ProsSupporting Manager, Comfortable and relaxed environment, decent PTO and Work from home policies, above average benefits, fair salary

    ConsIt is a LARGE company, as such, things often move slower than a person would like.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure everyone understands the mission and goals for the business and believes in them. With such a large company it is really easy for the guy at the bottom to not know what they are working towards.

    Great company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits.
    If you're a manager, you're likely going to get a very good incentive plan.
    Ability to work from home.

    ConsPromotions are rare. If you're "liked" by someone, you may get promoted. Otherwise, you're probably going to get stuck in your current position

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a better path for promotions.

    Good place to work considering it's a huge corporate environment

    Senior Applications Support Analyst (Former Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsI loved the teamwork with fellow co-workers. Strong leadership kept the team focused and also provided what was coming down the path. They also support a work-life balance and provided flexibility for family/personal life.

    Conssince I was working in a contractor role, I was not able to transition to a full time position as there was not one available. Compensation was almost half of contract pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider moving full time folks who are less productive to make room for contractors who want to work full time and benefit the business unit.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
