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

    Pros

    Meditech 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.

    Cons

    Meditech 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 ManagementAdvice

    Beef 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

    I worked at Meditech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job 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.

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Bring in some fresh blood into your C level and director positions.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Management 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing all your highly skilled employee leave for greener pastures. Increase pay raises based on performance not on only allocating a certain amount to each group. Could be a great place but you decided to live with mediocracy.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    Pros

    The workplace is an open environment. The annual bonuses are nothing to sneeze at and the bonuses only grow dramatically every additional year you stay with the company. The people in management actually care about the quality of our product.

    Cons

    The proprietary language is a little difficult to work with at times. Initial pay is not competitive.
