    Lack of leadership and vision is disappointing but the summer picnic is awesome.

    Sales (Former Employee) Framingham, MA

    ProsJob security is good but also leads to a lot of dead beats hanging on too long. Their buildings and grounds are very nice. Healthcare plan is good.

    ConsLack of project management, accountability are major issues. They are more than happy to let top performers across the organization leave and plug the gap with mediocre talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in some fresh blood into your C level and director positions.

    An excellent foundation for a career if you can handle stress

    Senior Applications Specialist (Former Employee) Framingham, MA

    ProsMeditech hires college graduates with no experience in computers and gives them the foundation to enter the HIS field.

    Raises are generally quite good (first year review I got an extra $2,400 / year, second year I received an additional $4,800 / year).

    Near ironclad job security.

    If you decide you want to change career paths once you've been there awhile, Meditech will oblige and will start training you in something else that you have no experience/education in. They really do offer you the ability to start on just about any career path (that they have a use for).

    Excellent health benefits.

    ConsMeditech hires out of college and effectively trains in a trial by fire. It's incredibly stressful, particularly for people who are coming right out of college.

    The starting pay isn't great... however, as I reminded people when I worked there, that starting salary was based on them hiring you to work on computers when all you had was a college degree in a non-technical major... you got what you could negotiate for.

    Ironclad job security means there are a number of employees who did just enough not to get fired for long enough to hit the 'tenure' mark and then their effort dropped.

    No 401k, company will claim that they have profit sharing which is their retirement solution instead of 401k.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeef up the training, a lot of the stress of job stems from having little information on hand about the software but being expected to act the "expert" for customers.

    Formalize documentation of code changes are hold Development to fulfilling that format

    Great first job/stepping stone for next job

    Development Specialist (Former Employee) Westwood, MA

    ProsStable, secure, excellent benefits, great working environment, annual bonuses.

    ConsThe company does not value their employees as much as they should. Everyone is expendable. During my time there, I saw numerous people leave because management refused to give them more pay or let them transfer to a more desirable position within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the good people and treat them right. Give them what they deserve. By losing all of these great workers, the quality of your product is going to decline, and this will be detrimental to not only you, but also all of your healthcare clients.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Too Much Leadership, Not Enough Action

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat coworkers and open communication from specialist to specialist. You are able to create a relationship with your coworkers and sites, bringing a unique social responsibility to your work.

    ConsManagement can be focused on numbers and not aware of a situation. Hard to receive support until the flames are licking at the "right" person's feet, even if you've been in them above your head for awhile.

    Great place to start, but lacking in long term potential.

    Marketing Consultant (Current Employee) Westwood, MA

    ProsNot a high-pressure sales environment - no quotas will be a positive for some. Great co-workers, great cafe, year end bonus for all employees.

    ConsSales territories are getting smaller, which means sales bonuses, which were already decreasing with hospitals settled in with current vendors for ARRA, are also getting smaller.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow for sales staff to naturally decrease over time, and stop hiring additional sales reps - at least until business picks up after ARRA.
