    I have been working at MedAssets full-time

    Pros

    -Stable jobs
    -good balance between work and life
    -new facility

    Cons

    -Underpaid, don't expect salary to jump much after you get through the door
    -BAD year raise and bonuses....not even if you work hard. It will not pay off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Everyone works for a living. If yearly raise and bonuses continue to low, employee turn over rate will get higher and higher, especially for employee who have been in the company longer. Who know the company will never let them have enough raise to meet the salary we were hoping to get at the end of the tunnel.

    Okay place if you work for Revenue segment

    Pros

    Some really nice people in the Plano, TX office.

    Cons

    Management top heavy, high deductible health insurance which is difficult for those who make less than 50K a year,
    lots of employees are on PIP. Very to little chance to come out of the performance improvement plans. When there are issues with employees they tend not to discuss those issues with the employee. Instead they put you on a PIP and within 30 days you better hope you find a job outside of the company. Revenue segment is much more laid back than the spend segment. Management keeps an eye on their teams very closely to see who are friends, who goes to lunch, what people are doing, what time everyone gets to work, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Does anyone in management read this area or care?

    I worked at MedAssets full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the circle of friends of the CEO, your name is gold and life privileged

    Cons

    If you are not in that rarefied air, you are disposable
    Innovation is stymied, even discouraged
    Rewards are reserved for the top tier only

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovate! Don't buy companies and then tie them down with corporate overhead. Customers deserve quality service and not just a great sell experience.

    Pros

    There are a handful of very smart people at the organization and when it's products are implemented they sometimes do help hospitals.

    Cons

    Awful marketing and sales leaders, no career pathing and you are surrounded by people that make you wonder how they function in society.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the consultants who you paid a lots of money to ignore. Gut the marketing and sales leadership and find leaders with a proven track record rather than people who have healthcare experience.

    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.

    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.
