    I worked at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, if you stay with the company for a few years the perks such as working from home, vacation and yearly bonus are great

    Cons

    Unorganized company with an inconsistent management structure. Promotions are not based on qualifications as much as how much employees share/email/notify the group of their work

    I have been working at Meditech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company hires at entry level and provides extensive training.

    Cons

    Low salary, little room for growth, little flexibility, you have to work there for a long time before seeing any kind of reward.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve and they won't leave the company after a year!

    Pros

    Company does not lay people off and yearly "bonus" guaranteed.

    Cons

    Low pay, they choose favorites and if you are not one, your career path is stunted and salary stays the same

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay to keep top talent around instead of letting people walk and bringing in brand new people

    Pros

    Meditech is a very stable company to work for. There is no worry about job security. The company also has a very laid back atmosphere and for the most part has a good employees.

    Cons

    The downside is the pay, I feel the reason most people leave is for better pay elsewhere.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    some of the pros of working at this company are: i have a very low stress environment and very good benefits

    Cons

    some of the cons of working at this company are: the cafeteria is awful, the meetings are pointless, and the pay is below industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    people do not like having so many meetings; most of them can be emails instead. nobody likes to be micromanaged.

    I worked at Meditech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open work environment. Stable job in a stable industry. Good first-job out of college. Opens other doors.

    Cons

    Low pay for the industry. High turnover. Culture varies by group. Lots of travel.

    Advice to Management

    Your people work hard for you. Pay them accordingly and stop losing everyone to other jobs where we are paid well and treated like grown-ups. You are notorious for having under-trained support staff, and for being a training ground for the fresh out of college crowd. I had multiple interviews where someone commented "Oh we love our Meditech people here. They send us some good ones!" ....Maybe try keeping us and investing your money in well-trained employees? Stop wasting time and money training everyone? Just some thoughts.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Work keeps its focus on the family. If you need your schedule to accommodate to your family situation, hours can be adjusted. No layoffs in its entire history. I look forward to coming to work as I'm around amazing people. Always being challenged and always learning something new every day.

    Cons

    I haven't worked here long enough to have any problems with being here. I think it's great.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable - don't have to worry about being laid off. Flexible - depending on your management team and division, things are really flexible. Atmosphere - beautiful buildings and a friendly environment Benefits - great benefits, including vacation time (3 weeks after 2 years) and 90% health and dental.

    Cons

    Low salary, especially for new employees. Location - sometimes people have to work at inconvenient buildings when there is a closer building. Lack of direction - sometimes it feels like the company is going in too many directions at once. Lack of resolution - sometimes it feels like the company is too scared to offend individual customers than it is determined to make decisions which will benefit all customers.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management - Provide the company with a clear goal and strive as a unit to reach that goal. Provide enough development staff to actually fix issues, rather than hiring people to just shuffle issues around. Be willing to make tough decisions regarding our software deployment practices to make things more streamlined and efficient. Lower & Middle Management - work with your employees and reward those who deserve it. Make sure you understand your employees roles.
