    Pros

    This company is the third bowl of porridge of employers: not bad, but not great either. The work atmosphere is great, the best I've ever been in, with a strong work/life balance ethic. The people here are fantastic. The company is doing very good things for society, including the various veteran support charities they have started. I really like my chain of management. This is a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Compensation is all over the map. Be sure to check an industry salary report before accepting an offer.

    Yearly raises can be incredibly anemic (1-1.5%) despite strong financial performance of the company.

    Career path is pathetic.The CS wing of the company and they are restructuring the job titles and pay bands across all the teams. This is a bad idea because the engineers are being brought to account management career paths, and it just doesn't work for career development for the engineers.

    Dev hand-off to support is a joke and has caused many, many business critical issues.

    The work on the software support side of the company can get very monotonous and routine. Not much room for growth, depending on how stable the products are, and they have been very stable for the last 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-examine pay structures and career paths.

    Pros

    Co-workers are some of the hardest working and best people I have worked with.

    Cons

    Senior leadership focuses on the future but fails to address the enormous amount of technical debt that is preventing the company from realizing it's full potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cease expenditures on hardware and short-term fixes and make a plan to address the technical debt.

    Seated to close together without petitions you can over here your coworkers calls while you're trying to talk to your client.

    Pros

    The employees I work with made it a great place to work

    Cons

    Senior management is a joke!! They do not have an open door policy.. If u disagree with them you too will soon be gone.. They are prejudice in the Nashville office.. They have offered hush money to black people ready to sue for being fired for no reason.. They have a manager who openly admits she is involved with the KKK and upper management is aware and does not care.. She has been heard calling a group of people the "N" word and all that happens is she gets promoted... If you are a minority you will never move up in this company.
    Another example: One white par and One black par applies for the same position.. The white par has no background in this type of business she used to sell ice cream.. The company uses all of The black pars ideas and continually ask her for more ideas.. When the decision is made the whit par got the position!!! Surprise surprise !!!! Very prejudice people.. John bardis is aware of all that is going on, but because he is more worried about showing his face on tv and trying to pretend how great he is...
    The post u see on here are not always accurate because we are being told that when there are too many neg comments they want us to get on here and fake some positive ones... Just be careful of this company.. It's not what it seems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head out if your butts and pay attention.. You have great people here.. Promote the good ones and stop promoting them just because they are white

    I have been working at MedAssets full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relaxing atmosphere
    Minimal Micromanaging
    seems to be more interest in engaging employees recently
    Company gives you time as a full time employee to participate in charitable events and activities

    Cons

    1. There is no formal career path to enhance your skills.

    2. The benefit package that I was told was great is only a savings plan- so if you have real health issues and need frequent medical attention, you have to meet a high deductible.

    3. The pay is mediocre, hard to manage the high deductible and bills with what I am getting after taxes.

    4. Advancement is held to those that have the inside scoop as a favorite.

    5. There is no information sharing.

    6. Working hard for recognition doesn't seem to exist

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the business as whole needs to collaborate

    information sharing- the left hand does need to know what the right hand is doing

    salary- follow the market and stay competitive so that the turnover dwindles

    health benefits- really. a company that is priding itself on helping hospitals save this many millions can't bother to ensure that their employees are saving money on their healthcare- come now

    advancement- take pride in knowing you have loyal employees that will work hard for you--give better recognition through money and advancement

    I worked at MedAssets full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice work environment provided to Plano, Alpharetta

    Cons

    Yakima work environment (red headed step children). Sr. Management and executives couldn't make it work, and the turnover continues. Salaries not even keel between what employees are paid in GA and TX, NJ vs. what is being paid in Yakima. Cliques galore, and if you don't "fit" in, you will never go anywhere and possibly be driven out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership, I know that this will never happen, but, stop trying to be best friends with your posse, and man up to get leadership all the way to the top that know Revenue Cycle. Your products continue to suffer. Technology has moved on over the past 6 years. You need to take what was awesome technology and do some quick and major updating to keep up with the competition. Good luck, you can't get out of your own way.
