    Pros

    Flexible schedule with telecommuting and work-from-home options.
    Adequate pay and benefits.
    Everyone is buzzing about the fancy coffee machines in the new offices.

    Cons

    ELT and SLT do not get along in their own teams, hire personal cronies without the requsite skills sets or industry knowledge to move Medecision forward, and are not seen as credible by the employees.
    Performance issues with leadership and staff, are not addressed while high performing staff is exiting out the door at an alarming rate. Employee morale is at an all time low. Clients are dissatisfied and we cannot seem to turn the tide.
    Unprofessional communication is frequent, in person, on the phone and during meetings. We are encouraged to speak candidly, yet when the few who risk it are blackballed, it makes people think being quiet is the better option. The workplace pipeline is rich with information as leadership seems incapable of knowing when and what to share.

    Advice to Management

    ELT/SLT-Hold each other accountable and if your peers cannot lead the Medecision charge, help them out of the organization now. Stop lying to employees and clients.

    Pros

    Small and initmate feel
    Work/life balance
    Employees from every level that commisurate with each other

    Cons

    Leadership is grossly underqualified
    Voted "most hated job thus far" by current employees
    Leadership can not articulate a strong business strategy

    Advice to Management

    I have seen this company go from very promising to a nightmare on all levels. Morale is horrilble and has been for about 2 years. Leadership knows this yet will do nothing to make it right The most recent insult is a message we received from the top asking us to post reviews on Glassdoor to dissuade the negative views. Good or bad wink-wink. The employees that stay are merely doing it because its comfortable. You would be hard pressed to find an employee that really cares about the happiness of our customers or quality of what they receive at this point. Top leadership is generally just unliked. The prevailing feeling is that chief is not trustworthy. HCSG should really consider dissolving the relationship if they wish to have a stronger bottom line.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. If you are a VP or SVP, the money and perks flow.

    Cons

    The cast system is in full play at Medecision. Upper management lives the high life while anyone working or producing is expected to work like a dog! There is too much work for the number of staff.

    Advice to Management

    Cut scope or add staff. Listen to employees. Consider promoting existing employees instead of bringing in new high dollar people that know nothing.

    Pros

    smart people who are hard working

    Cons

    parent company plugged in leaders because they were friends from prior lives not because they were good leaders who care about how people are treated; seems like recent positive reviews are either from those who drank the Kool-Aid or submitted by senior managers to off-set the overwhelming negative feedback about them

    Advice to Management

    it is not all about you, your salaries and bonuses. How about showing commitment by actually living nearby not in another state that requires air travel to and from your home. Parent company, shame on you too.

    Pros

    Nice co workers, very friendly and hard working.

    Cons

    managers suck. 4 vp's just resigned. other workers are leaving on a weekly basis. lot's of outsourcing. management hires there friends who are clueless and bullies. my manager belittles our staff with condescending emails to our entire group, singling out individuals. hi stress levels. CEO is on her own agenda, driving the company into the ground. Management is clueless as to why someone wants to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring friends or former co workers from previous companies. Stop hiring consulting companies who are lazy and do not know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, and great marketing.

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours, no work/life balance. Everything seems to be a challenge to get done since they let go a third of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk the talk, walk the walk. Trying so hard to be employee friendly and change the culture, but it's not working.

    Pros

    Interesting time to be working in health care IT; great opportunity to work on a new project designed to address the current and future needs in the industry; much flexibility for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Inability of senior management to make decision that allow projects to proceed in a timely manner - frustrating starts and stops; leads to being behind others in having a product ready for market - question the viability of the company long-term - not nimble; lag in creating world-class customer service - long history; performance evaluation program is all about structure that rewards high-flyers but does little to provide substantive support for employee development - deadlines are regularly not met by senior staff with no accountability and MJOs are created/revised without discussion halfway through the year.

    Pros

    IF you drink the koolaid you will be treated well and maybe even given awards

    IF you lay low you might be able to fly under to radar for a while.. But not for long.

    Cons

    Those who question the direction, policy, thoughts of the regime will expose themselves as targets and find themselves "managed" out regardless of talent.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point in advising those who are self delusional to believe that the policy of "if you aren't with us, get out" is a good management tactic
