    I have been working at MedAssets full-time

    Pros

    I like the fact that people pull together to get things that needs to be done, done. I also like the fact you are always learning new ways and improved ways to do your job, and you are given the chance to put the hours in to get it done.

    Cons

    The most important con about working at this job is that the commute to get here is a big one. know and understand that you staff dose not like to be threat'en. buy doing so you make them feel like slaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just like to say concerning this question that I would very much like for the management to give a bit more appreciation to the staff on all levels.and forward them there just due instead of always trying to feed them and a form of compensation.

    I worked at MedAssets as a contractor for more than a year

    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.

    A visionary company striving to keep their clients a step or two ahead of the changing healthcare markets.

    I worked at MedAssets full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They really value their employees and do a lot at their physical locations to keep people healthy and active!. Their Founder, John Bardis, is a very visionary leader!

    Cons

    For field employees, the training and support is not standard across all clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so greedy on current contracts and take a look see for consistencies in level of support and services. It shouldn't be left entirely up to the field rep to define how a client is serviced. Sooner or later clients compare notes!

    Pros

    Decent benefits and Salary on par or above competitors. Most people are very friendly and have lots of extra curricular activities. Very nice building and great cafe.

    Cons

    Senior management does not seem to address issues. Have brought numerous issues to the attention of Vice Presidents and although he says things will be done, nothing is. Training is non existent.

    I worked at MedAssets full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is favorable. Not much overtime to worry about. Casual atmosphere. Generous time off policies. Occasional fun activities.

    Cons

    Benefits are lacking and disappearing. Nepatism and favoritism are rampant. Lack of guidance regarding specific job duties and legal procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower management is given too much leeway with their duties. The checks and balances system is manipulated every day. These need to be reviewed more often.

    Pros

    The PTO you get is very good and they do have a good Christmas Party

    Cons

    1. Senior management is a joke!! They do not have an open door policy.. If u disagree with them you too will soon be gone..
    2. Advancement is held to those that have the inside scoop as a favorite
    3. Working hard for recognition doesn't seem to exist
    4. Too many silly games and hoops to jump through only to be set up for failure. Little training. No communication. No one knows who is doing what. Managers gossiping with employees about other employees
    5. When there is a change of direction for your dept. or team, you need to be sure to get management to spell out how it changes your role. If you cannot keep up with this new change, start looking for another job. Your manager can deem your services to be 'no longer be needed' & no matter how hard you work to satisfy them, you can be fired - with no clear explanation why.
    6. If you have a desire to change depts. due to finding more interest in a new one or feel you fit better, do so before any formal steps are taken by management within the current dept. If your manager decides to put you on a PIP (performance improvement plan), which typically lasts 30 days, you cannot change depts. until you have successfully completed that PIP. If you're not familiar with a PIP, the PIP isn't for YOU to be a better employee; it's for your manager to get better results from you, as an employee. HR will not back you or be on your side once this happens. So plan accordingly & keep your resume up to date. Because once the decision has been made, you will be quietly whisked out the door. They will ship your belongings to you.
    7. So many snakes in middle management. You only move up by being a yes man, being favored or throwing your coworkers under the bus.
    Very little recognition for true performance and work.
