    I have been working at OptimisCorp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vacation/sick/flex-time/telecommuting. There are some great employees in the Murrieta office but some really AWFUL managers. No leadership.

    Cons

    Understaffed. No leadership. No structure. Turnover is ridiculous. Lawsuits. No raises. Clinics and software are profitable but the company sucks up everything to fund lawyers. It's so sad because this place had great potential if the CEO and board weren't so clueless. A company this large should have full-time, engaged C-suite execs. There is no CFO or COO. No HR Director. No true marketing department. No full-time true IT persons (It's held down by 1 guy for close to 1000 people). i think they have under 5-6 people left working on the software now? We used to have full-time lawyers on staff and when they disagreed with the CEO, they were canned. Anyone who disagrees with him gets sacked, ran out and then sued or threatened with a lawsuit. Scary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More of advice to employees and potential employees. Don't do it. You'll regret it.

    Pros

    They had a lot of great employees that left quickly. Also Holger is a great guy. The only positive is if you aren't motivated to do real work you can survive just talking the talk rather than actually doing anything.

    Cons

    The place is surviving because they trick PT companies into giving their business away for the dream of the software company being huge (hence they make the purchase in stock that isn't worth anything). They tell the PT companies if they get in while the stock is low they will PROFIT. LOL

    The reality is they survive off the PT businesses and the PT software users are just the companies they have purchased and forced to use the software. The only thing they do that is good for the PT companies they purchase is doctoring their accounting books (I assume legally). Other than that they pretty much have a product that promises the world and delivers nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck with all the lawsuits.

    Financial Instability, Technically Inept, and Fading Quickly

    I have been working at OptimisCorp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Please note that the reviews between August 5 - August 13 are fake as noted by other reviewers so please discount the already highly positive bias in the company’s score. These were written intentionally by current employees to “massage the score” in an attempt to recruit more developer talent. The only real pro with OptimisCorp is flexibility in terms of work hours/telecommuting/time off. Since there is no accountability or process in place, people come and go as they please; which may be desirable for some individuals. If you are a lawyer, there is plenty of work available as the company is fraught with numerous lawsuits and current ongoing litigation.

    Cons

    The company has a culture of not getting anything done. There is no accountability and success is measured by how many emails and great conversations (and by that I mean lengthy) take place. In my honest opinion, much of this is due to a fundamental lack in technical leadership, starting with the CEO. While he is an incredibly friendly individual, he lacks efficient business acumen and traits of other highly successful CEOs (e.g. efficiency, open to change, accountability, team leadership, technology proficiency). His vision is very focused on a future ideal software offering that will somehow solve every problem with healthcare, wellness, PT, EMR, patient apps, portal, events, etc. (For those that understand technology and how difficult it is to create just one of those … will understand that trying to combine every facet into a single product is just unrealistic). The bottom line is that the OptimisPT product had a dominant share of the PT EMR market early-on; however, the application never matured as the company focused resources in various directions like events and wellness instead of software. As a result of chasing every new great idea, the company has very little synergy and has not embraced itself as a software or technology company. People work all over, remote, Murrieta, LA, Taipei, and Utah with little to no effective communication or cohesion. Turnover is incredibly high and there are no additional C-level employees as individuals that must interact with the CEO find themselves in a pattern of leaving quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don’t believe any advice I could give would impact the bottom line. The company needs major directional and top-down management restructuring changes to create a profitable strategy moving forward to compete with the current competition of well-organized, highly talented, and venture backed healthcare companies.

    I have been working at OptimisCorp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual environment; flexibility with schedules; good vacation and sick policies; you get paid on time. It can be a great company if they had better leadership.

    Cons

    Inconsistent up the entire chain: management, executives, board of directors; Lack of vision; No clear policies written anywhere; Any policies that are written are consistently ignored; Executives and Management are nowhere to be found; Management makes decisions without even trying to learn any processes, very throw the baby out with the bath water environment; No communication with staff on what is going on; Everything is done at the very last minute; Everything is an emergency or turns into one because they have no back-up plans.

    Pay is seriously lacking, raises are very few and other than medical, dental and 401k, they don't offer much. No 401k match; no bonuses; Medical and dental aren't even covered 50% for the employee and they don't offer FSA or supplemental or life insurance. They try to tell you they are focused on wellness but they don't offer any of this. Worthless stocks, no raises despite long hours; Cohesion simply does not exist here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership starts from the top, so try showing some instead of just hiding out in an office together. How about letting your employees in on what you are trying to accomplish? What direction are you trying to go? Do you want to go public? Do you want to be a software company, a health company, a fitness company, a clinical company? Consider getting some specialized consultants in that can help you show you where you can pick up slack across the board and focus on goals for the short and long term.

    Attempt to talk to your employees and see what is working and what isn't working; Maybe sit down with your key staff and learn WHY and HOW they do things. Write it down. Get more staff in order to organize everything and come up with more consistent policies;

    Pros

    The concept is great. Kudos to the detail and depth of the documentation module. The employees in the clinics are great.

    Cons

    Management has no clear concept of project management. The reason the company is in trouble is because they did not follow a plan.

    Pros

    There are (were) some great people that work here. Generally, people that actually do work, do their work very well. People are pretty easy to get along with. Nice location next to the beach.

    Cons

    Management is ridiculously bad, especially executive level. Lots of talk, no follow through. Lost a lot of skilled, great employees due to bad leadership. Employees are not compensated for doing good work -- in fact, the exact opposite happens. The worst employees move up the chain, while the good ones quit or get fired. A lot of good employees were lost in a very short time span. It seems the company is full of extremes when it comes to employees. You have the very best employees working alongside the worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less talk, more action. Realize that the quality of employees is more important than the quantity. Listen to your employees. Follow through on what you say in a timely manner.

    I have been working at OptimisCorp full-time

    Pros

    Working with an excellent, hard working group of individuals that dedicate themselves to making OptimisPT and their team members better.
    A new direction that will allow our company and software to grow exponentially.
    Being the cutting edge in compliance.

    Cons

    Increased communication about corporate and all current changes can improve confusion and frustration.
    Lack of resources and bugs can be cumbersome at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to all staff ideas regardless of position. Focus not only on the "big picture" but take in too considerations the "little" things that need to be fixed as well. We have issues and bugs that may seem insignificant but will improve our product and show our customers we care. Continue to focus on opening the lines of communication between the developers and the rest of the staff.

    Pros

    People here are an absolute pleasure to work with. We have fun but also know when to get serious. With all the company changes, the managers do a great job to make sure that their team doesn't feel the full impact. Also the flexible hours are great!

    Cons

    I can't really think of any Cons as management does a great job of keeping you focused on your job rather than getting you involved with what's going on with the company as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at OptimisCorp as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Although I work off site out of state I feel like I am part of a great team. Your experience in your field is respected and valued. Huge opportunity with this company if you are self driven. The product is a success and will continue to succeed as the staff are just not employees; they are represented in their field. Recent new management comes with a vital missing piece of the puzzle combined with a enthusiastic personality and the required team-ship management style.

    Cons

    Recent huge shake up that has not really been addressed with the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus. Let go of grudges.

    I have been working at OptimisCorp as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people here are wonderful. Everyone is knowledgeable in their content area i.e., front office administration, documentation, compliance, billing, development, and IT. As a contract employee I appreciate the flexibility of my schedule and lack of micromanagement from above. There is opportunity to stay as busy as I want to be. The EMR software is evolving and has potential to be the best!

    Cons

    Lots of change going on in upper management. Not a lot of communication down stream.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a former user and a current trainer of the EMR software, I hear what the clients are asking for... please listen. Some of the items have been on "the list" since the product was in Beta stages. Please listen and respond on what users are asking for.

    There are lots of great ideas (EMR & apps) bouncing around OptimisCorp... stay focused on one idea and when it is place and working well move on to the next.... sometimes it feels as though there are too many balls being juggled.
