    Pros

    Coffee is fantastic!
    Bagels on Friday
    Frequent HR sponsored employee functions
    Paycheck every two weeks

    Cons

    IT PMO Management operates on the basis of "Tell me what you think I want to hear, not what I need to know." Low initiative and drive as most are afraid to rock the boat for fear of losing their jobs for telling the truth. Most gave up caring about the company when management made it clear their input was not valued and they would leave in a heartbeat if a "better" (meaning more money/benefits) opportunity presented itself. Most of what remains could not find a comparable position elsewhere. Quality people will rarely have staying power at MedAssets due too internal cliques, politics and policies. As soon as you walk through the door as a motivated and intelligent high performer, you have a target placed on your back and everyone is waiting for you to fail... High performance people are not appreciated as the majority view them as a threat and resent their knowledge as opposed to learning. If you go here only expecting a paycheck and no growth, just settle into the mediocrity and MedAssets is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    That servant leader model stuff is a great idea, but it stopped at the top. Senior leadership nicknames like the Swede and the Intimidator don't sound much like servant leaders. Don't treat people as subordinates, treat them as a partner in your success.

    I have been working at MedAssets full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company offers flexible hours. Great Work life balance. Free alcohol and food during employee appreciation day. Free food and emegengy supplies during a natural disaster. Lots of fund raising for special causes.

    Cons

    The place is micro managed and is being run like a concentration camp. Whites are considered family and have access to more opportunities. Blacks are more likely to get fired and get lower pay than whites and hispanics. Most managers have little or no experience. Executives treat employees like 2nd class citizens and managers spend most of their times gossiping about the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved and work for your pay. Treat people like human beings not trash. Stop the racism and favortism.

    Pros

    Training opportunities
    Exposure to diverse clients across the country

    Cons

    Male-centric organization; women are not valued nor promoted here
    Work life balance is non-existent
    The politically savvy get ahead while the workers continue to work to support them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider that half the population is women and that women bring tremendous value to organizations. Provide opportunities to promote women instead of the good-old-boys club mentality.

    I have been working at MedAssets as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, workout facility open to all, great cafeteria, and friendly people.

    Cons

    Full-time employees have a tremendous amount of pent-up anger towards management. If you are a consultant (contractor) beware. Contractors are disposed of on a constant basis and there is little or no training or direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your consultants like real people who have families to go back home to. Manage the employees instead of just throwing a blanket over top of them and firing at will.

    I worked at MedAssets as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice campus (Plano), great corporate culture of giving back to the community. Stated corporate values are amazing. John Bardis actually walks the halls and speaks to the staff.

    Cons

    IT management clearly has no intention of living up to the corporate values. Start with a back-stabbing, self-serving IT leadership, mix in management by intimidation by the Directors, then add individual contributors in fear of speaking up, and you get the picture of the complete disfunction. Too bad that John Bardis can't see what is happening when walking the halls. There is no room for a professional to step in and execute. DO NOT WORK IN I.T. AT MEDASSETS IN PLANO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the IT managers from the VP down... start from scratch. You cannot fix these people.

    Pros

    High energy company dedicated to customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Because it was an Agile shop, the number of meetings could be unbelievable. The contractors were also treated like 2nd class workers.
