    Pros

    Smart people and tried and true products, company is known for giving back to veterans and other groups. You can feel proud about being a part of MedAssets.

    Cons

    Health benefits could be better but are probably par with other companies in this new age of reimbursement. Integration of different products still lacking but I've heard there is a new focus.

    Pros

    New mgmt starting to make some headway in direction toward better focus on the entire system.

    Cons

    Still a bit silo'ed, political, and not willing to hire for need. Most people are over-worked. Processes are defined by people dictating the process, not the people using the process.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Use experienced people intended to use the process to define the process.

    Pros

    High business ethic and place high importance on delivering services as promised to clients when commitment is made. Treat employees well

    Cons

    Because of the size of the company and the size of the internal groups there is some lack of communication regarding needs of the company and uses of the staff that should be resolved to avoid problems.

    Advice to Management

    Look more carefully and in detail at the individual scenarios and the assets that MedAssets has to avoid eliminating assets that bring significant value to your resource teams. Be sure you don't eliminate an important component that is necessary to those teams because you don't understand the situation.

    Pros

    Nice new building, excellent cafeteria, still some sharp, dedicated people left struggling to make this a better place for customers and employees.

    Cons

    Enterprise Technology and SCM IT management. I honestly don't think you could find a group of individuals less capable of leading if you tried. They have no concern or interest in employees, and treat them accordingly. They are only interested in expanding their own power, and actively persecute anyone who isn't a yes person or who may be paid more than an entry-level person. Working in either of these groups clearly demonstrates what HR refers to as a "hostile environment", unless you're one of the exceptionally unqualified yes people who have been placed in mid-level management.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of these people before someone actually sues you and you cease to exist. These people have wasted millions of dollars on building up their one egos. Seriously. Open your eyes. Ask employees (the few who haven't been replaced by expendable contractors) what they think in a way where they cannot be punished for their opinions.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good. Many people work from home several days a week, or full-time. Nice new building.

    Cons

    Leadership still can't seem to figure out this Software Dev thing. So much impetus, talent and initiative from the original mergers & acquisitions has been wasted, dissipated and lost for good. The software is stumbling and backfiring along the highway, running on the fumes of past glory. Productivity is down so far below what it was in days past, it's comical and depressing. But so few are left from those days, nobody's really aware how things used to be. Because different groups are so clueless about each other's work (siloing), the same functionality has been duplicated over and over, and poorly. But even if people did know what others are doing, the mind-numbing, Kafkaesque bureaucracy imposed on developers completely discourages collaboration. Taking the initiative to collaborate with another team is sure to backfire, and don't you have your own work to do, scrum-slave? In a nutshell, management has moved from a culture of trust for developers to one of mistrust, and installed a surveillance regime to keep them in line.

    Advice to Management

    Have the courage to perform the major surgery required, before it's too late. This surgery needs to remove the deadly tumor, which includes most of upper management in the RCT division (and this is hopefully underway with Bardis's departure). Bring in bold, unconventional people who really know software, and give them the leeway to take action, and possibly make mistakes as they work IN COLLABORATION with the people in the trenches. The wimpy, tentative initiatives in effect now aren't getting anyone anywhere. Must be willing to invest in new, parallel dev efforts to REPLACE the old crap, not upgrade it. Yes, that means it won't produce revenue immediately, and it's called "investing for the long term". And get away from metrics-myopia. Just because you can finally put a number on something (like scrum velocity) doesn't mean it matters. In fact, basing anything on it is a morale killer because the folks who actually generate these bogus numbers know very well how useless and misleading they are, and how to manipulate them. Basing reviews on them just breeds cyncism.

    Pros

    The team I work with is excellent. Working with a level of management above can be tiresome.

    Cons

    I work with people in a lot of different offices and it can be difficult at times due time differences and communication restrictions.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to pay off technical debt rather than floating it from year to year. Lots of easy things to fix if the time was given.

    Pros

    Heart and Soul time off to volunteer at a charity is the only good thing about this company.

    Cons

    We were just told in an all-hands call that this is our company and all ideas are welcomed for improvement. Folks in the St. Louis office (and perhaps elsewhere, too), will be terminated for expressing an idea like that. The atmosphere is oppressive and punitive and no one cares what analysts think. The company's technology is dated and prone to fits of failure. Unless you are one of the 200 vice presidents that the company believes it needs, you do not count.

    Advice to Management

    Despite the fact that you treat your front line employees like they are stupid, we are really not so stupid and we have heard it all before. Until your actions match your words, please save the, "you matter," speeches. It is beyond evident that we do not.
