    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.

    Pros

    There's plenty of freedom for employees on the technology team. You can define your own work schedule so long as you get the job done, stay in the office for a reasonable amount of time, and do not miss the 10:30am standup. There's also free weekly lunches, where employees pick a restaurant to eat out at and the company reimburses the employee for the cost. Additionally, the office is located right by the beach. Since the company promotes wellness, you have the liberty to go on daily runs at the beach.

    Cons

    There were some issues with management and the company was in pretty bad shape the past few months. As a result, employee benefits were neglected: no performance reviews, employees haven't been reimbursed for free weekly lunches, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that upper-level management has repaired itself, it's time to start focusing on employee satisfaction and retention.

    Pros

    The company is transitioning from "beta product" to "seasoned solution" - which can be painful for both company and customer at times. Processes that used to meet the need just don't now, adapt or die. The management is very forward looking and is open to doing what it takes to make our customers successful in the future.

    Cons

    Old habits die hard. Some people can't handle the change or don't want to be somewhere while they go through that change - this explains most of the negative comments on Glassdoor. Sour grapes.

    One of the brutal realities of the beta departure is that developers have to be more sensitive to deadlines. In the beginning, beta customers were more forgiving of languishing enhancement requests because there were serious core work to be done. Now that we are pursuing a broader market, prospective customers expect that we will come through on even little commitments. To everyone who says, "you can't rush perfection" - the invisible hand will show that people won't wait for you to do it perfectly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and keep the vision.

    I worked at OptimisCorp

    Pros

    If you are motivated you have time to learn what you want to learn. You are allow given time to workout if you want to.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have experience in software and they have little knowledge of healthcare.

    Upper management doesn't supervise at all. Thus allowing the manager of the software to micro-manage and do things that are "less than desired".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get feedback from your workers. Many fear mid-management. Try to establish a relationship of trust with the people doing the work. You will realize your bottlenecks and bad employees when you understand your full development process. Also try not to say things like "this is the deadline" Ask more questions than telling what will happen. getting feedback from the worker-bees will help everyone. Good Luck.

    In the last 6 months, we have brought in a new leadership team to overhaul our development process and make it more in tune with customer demands and requests.

    Part of that is being more

    Pros

    It WAS a place that had potential and seemed on the cusp of greatness.

    Cons

    The management of the product was horrible and had no experience in Software Dev. Any potential they had was eclipsed by their management team that have never worked in a software environment. No direction and no knowledge equals a subpar product with no potential afterall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some people that have experience in Healthcare Software Dev. Fire your existing ones.
