    Fair compensation but you definitely have to earn it.

    Pros

    They provide an opportunity to be as successful as you desire. There are opportunities for professional growth and are positioned for growth.

    Cons

    In my particular division, the quick growth left the group struggling to find its identity. There is no formal training.

    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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX

    I worked at MedAssets

    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?

    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.

    Senior Financial Leadership is economical with the truth

    I have been working at MedAssets as a contractor

    Pros

    The CEO has a lot of integrity and he follows the company's core values. At first glance the financial leadership may be initially perceived as lazy and full of malice. After much research I have come to the conclusion they are not lazy nor do they have malice. This is a pro. Most of the time they don't realize they are throwing you under the bus based on inaccurate information. Most of the time they don't realize they screwed up. This is a pro because you know there is hope.

    Cons

    Not everyone shares the same core values that CEO shares. If you work outside the finance department you are more likely to be exposed to the core value concept of integrity. The leadership in finance suffers from conceptual confusion. The leadership in finance produces data that they want to produce rather than data that is asked. The leadership in finance supports answers that the facts do not support.The leadership in the finance department is economical with the truth. The leadership in finance is proficient at being misinformed.It is my perception the leadership finance department is confused by evidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It starts at the VP level so nothing can be done. A report can always be produced that has inflated data that suits their perspective. The VP has saved the company way too much money for anything to be done as it pertains to being economical with the truth. It would be easier to eliminate integrity as your core value.

    Pros

    Only a hand-full of trusted coworkers.
    Weds midday boosting desserts
    Free bagels Friday

    Cons

    It was great at first. But once you start to stand out as a motivated worker, the scams start to pile on you (i.e: performance reviews, micromanagement starts to lock onto you)
    Be careful, do not get too comfortable, even when you do your job right.
    Have seen lots of upbeat employees turned into depressed zombies within a short period of time.
    Lower-level workers who were insulted by upper management will get empty promises to hush. Or as long as they go to HR before you do to report an incidents (i.e: confessions of wrong doings), they will get a nice tap on the wrist.
    Some management and HR are a team (minus a few honest upper levels who are unaware of what happened). You won't win against them. It's their words against yours.
    All the bells and whistles are just for show, but no-go. They are just masks to cover the wrong-doings.
    The only hotline that can help is EEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating nonwhite workers like slaves or as though they are uneducated. They might not know the industry, but they know what's going on and what you meant by certain comments.
    Your title might mean something to you in that work environment. But you won't gain any trust from strangers outside with the way you treat your workhorses.

    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.
