    Best Career Move!

    Sales Manager (Current Employee) Lenexa, KS

    ProsGreat dynamic sector, always growing and expanding into new products and continents. Very positive team work culture, new opportunities.

    ConsMost colleagues are remote nationwide, which is great at times but also creates a less social work environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore employee recognition would be great including the sales team.

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

    No work life balance, shady management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA lot of the people are really great.

    ConsIT groups are treated like dirt, understaffed and expected to work around the clock. Management ignores needs of employees to squeeze every dime out of their products and services and does not care that the customers suffer as long as it costs them less then making things better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on customer satisfaction the right way, empower your employees and improve your offerings before clients complain rather than after the fact.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great co-workers. Horrible management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTime off policy as well as co-workers.

    ConsUpper management refuses to listen to its employees. Corporate environment is dreadful. Yearly layoffs and they never replace any employees who leave on their own accord. We've gone years not selling systems in certain product lines, however the only ones who pay for it are the employees via layoffs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees.

    Like surviving trench warefare, without basic training.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    ProsMediware's corperate policies are aimed to providing a positive balance between work and personal time, and the company has very good benefits from time off to its health plan. The company also keeps it's technical equipment upto date making it relatively easy to keep up in the ever changing feild of technology.

    ConsAbsolutely no documentation for the software. Reliance on senior member's for assistance is frowned upon so new developers are often left out to figure things out for their own or fail quickly and find themselves without a job. The senior management also enjoy playing games with their employees to add additional levels of stress that are generally not required; this includes pitting employees against one another or a manager in order to ensure that employee's and managers have the right skills for their jobs. Manager's consistantly give conflicting orders and then accuse one another of trying to over ride the other, in the end the employee following the orders is punished because ultimately they were wrong for following the wrong instructions. Software produced for customer's is commonly sold to them before the software has ever even hit the design process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease resign and allow for new individuals to take over and reshape your company. You have for years failed to achieve anything other then revenue, and while this is overall good for bussiness in the short run, when you run out of people who are capable of actually supporting your company's forward momentum you will fail.

    Mediware....Not bad if you're already planning to transition to being elsewhere.

    Associate Software Engineer (Current Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    ProsVERY Good Work/Life balance. Management is very receptive to the need for a life outside of work and encourages its employees to take care of their personal matters. Fairly casual atmosphere.

    ConsVery little technical documentation which can be very frustrating for new developers starting out, and apparently there is little effort being put forth to rectify that situation. Very many other nuances that just add strife to the life of a developer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDocumentation, Documentation, Documentation. There needs to be a streamlined process outlining system design decisions, the schema and layout of the data, as well as a one-stop shop for coding standards so as to encourage uniformity in the code base for maintenance sake.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
