    Pros

    Nice people to work with. Good Training. I don't have twenty words to add as that describes the pros to working here.

    Cons

    The leadership is very disorganized. Does not request input from those who have been working on the programs before making changes. The leadership also does not communicate appropriately to employees on situations that impact their positions with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Become familiar with each department. Not just through the Manager or Director, but by sitting with and listening to the employees. Find out what pains they experience and why. Find out what works and keep doing more of it.

    Pros

    Beautiful building and great cafeteria. PTO.

    Cons

    I ever heard a girl making very racist comments. I told the director and while she did get a talking to and you can tell she had egg on ger face, she got promoted like 2 times after that within a couple of months. There was a woman there who they thought knew so much about pharmaceutical data and she did not. None of the speacalist did. Well the woman was so rude and the excused her excessive tardiness and absenteeism because they thought she knew all who to categorize pharmaceutical data and she did not.

    Advice to Management

    Get some professionals in there. Stop having people who have no clue about pharmaceutical data edit work when they have no clue at all what they are doing. You need a pharmacist to oversee the work duh!!!!!!

    I worked at MediMedia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was well paid. Office environment is nice. Onsite cafeteria is convenient. Work/Life balance for me personally was pretty good.

    Cons

    Major turnover in top level manager roles. Many restructurings and rounds of layoffs. It seemed the very top management could not come up with a strategy/plan and then stay with it long enough to see if it would work. After holding company meetings to announce how the new re-structuring was great and was going to increase our revenue, etc, etc., top management would restructure again after 6-10 months. I saw many rounds of this over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a strategy and plan. Then stay with it long enough to see the results.

    I worked at MediMedia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1.) The cafeteria is nice (employees get a discount). 2.) Plenty of free parking. 3.) Yardley is a beautiful town.

    Cons

    1.) No organized project management process. 2.) Severely understaffed. 3.) HR accepts hearsay as evidence during mediation processes. 4.) Departments are mismanaged, understaffed, and disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Either restructure and revamp the internal departments and put a formal project management process in place, or divest this company from you portfolio of investments. If nothing is done, this business will implode on itself.

    I have been working at MediMedia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The office is clean, safe and comfortable. IT Helpdesk support is absolutely top notch - equipment is nearly always in good working order and there's someone to help. Cafeteria is excellent, with a salad bar, sandwiches and hot platters every day, prices are reasonable and they quickly learn your name. Plenty of parking and easy access for commuters and locals alike. The work-life balance was excellent.

    Cons

    Little to no advancement potential. They may inflate your title but you will be basically doing the same thing. Cog in a wheel mentality, with little to no change. Any suggestions you make to change processes or go in a different direction will be ignored. My job itself was simplistic but the volume of work was too high. Healthcare communications is a very female-dominated field, therefore, there's tons of petty jealousy, backbiting and undermining going on. I believe the pay is slightly lower than average. The benefits and 401K match are pitiful. Strange, cryptic restructuring announcements several times a year that always seem to result in layoffs followed by re-hiring for basically the same positions. It's like a game of survivor.

    Advice to Management

    Train and promote your employees from within to different areas of the company. The work is not difficult and when someone gets burned out in one area there's no reason why they can't transition to another. Female managers really need to check their egos at the door and start supporting each other instead of competing. The repeated restructuring is not working and simply causes internal chaos and confusion. Quit trying to scare and intimidate your employees with sudden CEO announcements (which are never truly positive) and all-hands meetings that wreck morale. Offer better benefits.
