    Pros

    Bonus, profit sharing, flex days, buildings

    Cons

    Pay, Profit Sharing (diminishing percentage), all eggs in one basket concept (which is starting to be recognized with lower raises, profit sharing, stock value.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain more competitive with others. The technologies upcoming look promising, but it is already what other major competitors are exploring and in many cases already starting to do. New products need to be out already and proven. Identify more growth potential in positions, which is nearly flat. Provide more consistency with promotions as many divisions folks continue to get title promotions, but in other divisions promotions are very difficult to come by,. Be more aggressive with new 6.1 as this needs to be proven and out there in marketplace now, its somewhat concerning that we're banking on this working and has yet to go LIVE with beta sites.

    Pros

    Benefits are good but not out of the ordinary for a large company. The experience is worthwhile but advancement is highly competitive due to the completely internalized workforce.

    Cons

    Meditech is well known for low salaries.

    I worked at Meditech full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    To be honest I actually cannot think of any real pros to this company except for the annual company picnic but even that with free lobster doesn't make up for how poor a job this company does at retaining and helping its employees

    Cons

    This company does a very poor a job at retaining and helping its employees and does not care about the talent someone possesses but rather just on the number of years at the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring from within and stop looking down at employees who utilize the services you provide and decide to continue their education to better themselves and actually progress in life and want to bring new ideas to old company set in its ways

    Pros

    Yearly bonus, above average salary increases every year, no one gets laid off... ever

    Cons

    Not an agile, cutting edge company. It's a conservative company at heart that has steadily been growing for many years. It doesn't take many risks, and neither do the employees take many risks in their work.

    Pros

    Job security. The company has never had a layoff. It recently dissolved a whole department but found places within the organization for everyone.
    Culture is generally friendly and accommodating.
    Seldom required to work after hours.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    Boastful of benefits package, but it's comparable to, or worse than, most tech jobs.
    Poor training.
    While the culture is friendly and forgiving, it tends to breed mediocrity in staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training, provide clearer avenues of advancement, pay your employees more, and understand the kinds of cultures and benefits that make up a tech company in the 21st century.

    Pros

    Free soda, cheap (and good) food, outside of Boston (cheaper cost of living, but still high), good health benefits

    Cons

    Low salary, obsolete programing language, unsympathetic management. You get the feeling of being in a dead end; the company doesn't give you enough experience to branch out (especially since you're programming in a language that NO ONE else uses), so you have to move up inside the company to improve your life. But... why would you want to? A 5k better salary STILL sucks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work it into your budget to pay your employees better. Employees with families stick around for the long haul, but how to you expect someone to raise a family near Boston for 40k a year?

    Pros

    Medical software is always needed. Despite the size coworkers are like family. There are opportunities for advancement. Financially conservative company.

    Cons

    The company treats employees like commodities.
