    Pros

    Good group of professionals and friends.

    Cons

    The executive leadership does not care about the product. The strategies to sell the product are not honest; the company lost all the clients except the parent company.
    The products have so much technical/architectural debt that adding/changing one small feature could take a couple of releases and re-design efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees and customers

    Pros

    There were some very good individuals in parts of the organization. Casual environment for a good amount of the time working there and a good location.

    Cons

    Unfortunately those good individuals were surrounded by too many ineffectual managers with no clear direction or plan. Senior management brought in hand-picked people that did not know the business or were particularly good at there jobs. That caused a lot of clash with existing employees when it was clear there was no accountability at higher levels of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly self-assess the capabilities of the senior management and what they are contributing to the organization. Realize that just because the perspective is new doesn't mean it is right.

    One direction down

    I worked at Medecision

    Pros

    Four years ago there was great growth potential for this company. It was a casual work environment with potential to deliver a much needed product.

    Cons

    I have never seen a company where middle-management does not hold any kind of team meetings. There is no cohesion between the departments. Absolute lack of direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give clear direction for where the company is headed Treat everyone as though their job adds value to the company's bottom-line. Respect one another.

    Pros

    Salary was great - but no worklife balance

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what it is doing in this market. Marketing is a mess. Back stabbing and lying prevail.

    Pros

    Great individual people, good salary, casual work environment

    Cons

    The latest of many changes in leadership resulted in massive layoffs; good people cut loose with little feedback as to why (other than "lead, follow or get out of the way"), more & more executives, and no backfill for the people let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remember that a company is more that just a management team. Need a good product, and PEOPLE.

    I have been working at Medecision full-time

    Pros

    Compensation compensation, compensation, compensation, compensation

    Cons

    Run by management much like a country run by Caste System. The worker bees and then the royalty.
    Laying off complete departments and then asking other employees to step into those functions within in the company with no regard to their skill sets, educational background and work history. No training or professional development. Poor leadership. Leaders chosen and placed In roles that they for which they are not qualified. Positions appointed without posting the opportunity to others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that the company needs to have uniquely qualified professionals to perform the very specific and technical tasks. In other words, you can not fit a round peg in a square hole just because you laid off or chased off all of the round pegs.

    Pros

    Not including management, some real good and talented people. But not many of them left.

    Cons

    Big Churn every couple of years because of changes in upper management.
    The company has been living off the fumes of the success of the original owner and original market niche.
    Big layoffs last in the last two years.

    toxic culture under a leadership team that cares little for employees

    Pros

    employees care about their work; a lot of capable people; smart technical people; employees put up with a lot of abuse

    Cons

    execs want commitment but most of them work remotely from different part of the country; messages about people being a valued asset are the height of hypocrisy: criticism and demeaning people is the real experience; morale is non-existent and talent is leaving weekly but execs don't really care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be honest and just tell people it's all about the money and results no matter how you get them; don't preach candor if it really just means you can say anything you want with complete disregard for showing any respect for others

    Pros

    - Work/life balance - There are some stressful times, but they are predictable
    - People - Very talented, helpful, and collaborative
    - Casual environment
    - Ability to have a say and feel empowered.

    Cons

    - Too much negativity in remaining employees
    - Separation between the worker bees and the executive leadership team. Feels like two separate worlds
    - Slow response to adopt new technologies or adapt
    - Resistance to change because of fear of risk

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Undoubtedly, MEDecision has had a bumpy road over the recent years. But holding onto the past, pointing fingers, and hoping for the good ol' days is not going to help the company progress. There is much more opportunity at MEDecision for employees to influence change than at bigger corporations where everyone is truly a number and pigeon-holed. Encourage everyone to collaborate and "breakthrough" the walls that separate everyone.

    Product Development Team Efforts Stifled by Senior Mgmt Decisions

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Medecision full-time

    Pros

    Good people and a sense of collegiality in product development teams.
    Flexible work schedule.
    Casual attire.
    Clean and safe facility.

    Cons

    The future is ever uncertain.
    Despite proclaiming candor as a value, Senior Mgmt shows a feigned, pep-rally camaraderie with the workforce, which is dispiriting and destructive over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be genuine.
    Reward innovation instead of dismissing it.
    Listen to the teams and give them the time and resources to develop solutions that will make the products more robust, maintainable, and scalable.
