    I worked at QuadraMed full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were good Allowed employees to work remote. Managers do not micro-manage. Many long-term employees that really know the product and application.

    Cons

    Lack of product direction and vision. When there is vision, there is not enough money to implement it. Product is way too much me-too and not innovative. Not enough new blood and employee work force is definitely aging with no plans to replace key people as they leave and/or retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create plans on how to replace employees that are leaving. Bring in new blood with new ideas. Get away from "this is how we have always done it" mentality.

    I have been working at QuadraMed full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    In the past we have enjoyed the collegial and the supportive nature of the large team that worked together to help our customers achieve an excellent and cost effective Electronic Health Record (EMR). We had good earnings; good enough in fact that it made us attractive to be bought by Harris Computing from our then owners. However, sales have been flat and layoffs frequent. These have caused many people like myself to seek consider other career opportunities.

    Cons

    Currently flat sales and declining system implementations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop ruling by numbers alone and take a longer view and approach to developing the products and human capital.

    Pros

    Passionate group of employees. Believed in the mission of the Company.

    Cons

    Went downhill after acquired by Francisco Partners. It was obvious from the start that they only cared for how much they could get out of the Company and not the long term best interests of its success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. All the good management left.

    I worked at QuadraMed full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Friendly people. Job variety.

    Cons

    Vile new owners with no clue about American Healthcare or how to run anything larger than a $10M business unit. Splitting the Enterprise applications in to two disparate units equates to doom. Company fails to pay vendors, DirecTV was actually turned off at one location. No Enterprise sales in 4 years and since purchasing QCPR from Misys there were only 2 net new customers (not counting conversions). Client attrition is vile for QCPR. Affinity attrition slowed but that's after 1/2 the customers left due to former regime that strong armed customers in to paying a 2nd time for what they already bought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push back on Harris or close up shop.

    I worked at QuadraMed for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great friends and co-workers, a wonderful feeling of teamwork. Was a wonderful place for many, many, years with great leadership, vision, desire and a plan. Under Harris, we are dying a slow death and not only do they not understand, they don't care. An American Healthcare company run by Canadian Bean Counters = misery all around.

    Cons

    No vision. No plan, at least for the Clinical and Revenue Cycle business units. MPI and Enterprise Self Service have growth opportunity and a future, QCPR and Revenue Cycle are on the way out. There's no future at all in either business unit. Benefits suck, who caps 401(k) at $2000 per year, IF you are there on the last day of the year. No carry over for Personal Time Off. Only 2 options, PPO and HSA for Healthcare. Canadian company with NO IDEA how to provide benefits for American's. We don't take 5 weeks per year off, that's why we are the #1 Economy in the world. Imposing Socialist policies on American companies will only expedite their downfall. Let me carry over and/or cash out unused Personal Time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop running a $95M company like you run $8M start-ups. You cannot treat a company, culturally or financially that has 300+ employees the same as you do an organization with 15 companies. Learn and understand business life cycle.

    Pros

    Excellent products and passionate employees.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for knowledgeable resources. Post acquisition lack of vision and industry knowledge. Harris Management MIA, therefore no exposure to day-to-day activities and morale of employees. Employee comments, recommendations and advancement are based on favoritism, rather then what is best for the company. There are some resources that should be managers, but they will not be considered because current management is threatened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recommend Harris Executive team meet with employees, generate open lines of communication before they lose their investment.

    Pros

    Quadramed took a team oriented approach to the implementation of various programs from different companies to make healhcare care productve, efficient, and profitable.

    Cons

    Due to the continual addition of various programs from other companies,integration of the various programs became difficult and training of the implementatin consultans often lagged behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Formulation of a single program which was compatible with more LIS systems than just Afinity
    would have eliminated the time spent in integration and redced the training time.

    Pros

    Employees are treated well and fairly. Benefits are very good and management treats employees well.

    Cons

    Managers do not know the technology they manage. Constant attempts to follow other companies technology decisions. Product Management is not forward thinking, way too much of a "me too" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recruiting new employees as the current employees are aging and will eventually leave/retire leaving large knowledge gaps.
