    Pros

    It has a great culture and environment. The office (in Denver) is very laid back. Micromedex is a tech company at heart so much of the traditional positive traditional tech attributes exist here - casual dress, low stress, employee perks. I worked in the finance group and came from a financial services background. This was almost culture shock for me.

    Cons

    As part of a large corporation (its even larger know with the merger of Thomson and Reuters), there are the typical beuracracies and negatives that come with a company of this size. One of the good things though is that Micromedex is a smaller, almost stand alone, part of the parent. So this is less of a negative. The finance group was small, so was little opportunity to advance your career.

    Advice to Management

    Senior mgmt at Micromedex is competent and fairly attuned to their employees. The problem is that they have to listen to what is handed down from on high, at Thomson corporate. That creates a disconnect. So I could go and talk to the CFO of Micromedex at any time and voice my opinion. But it would never get to the CFO of Thomson.

    I would characterize the company as on a steady decline.

    Pros

    The healthcare industry is on the rise. This is a good way to get into the field and use the company as a launching point.

    Cons

    The culture of the company is very poor. Sadly the emphasis has shifted from caring about our customers to one of protecting the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest an internal audit on management. A thorough investigation is necessary to fix serious systemic problems.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits (401k, healthcare, etc), One of the tops for salary compensation, Employees are very friendly and helpful, Great team environment

    Cons

    Low morale at Denver location, no advancement opportunities, company has stagnated on moving forward with the healthcare industry, corporate wants to get rid of healthcare division

    Advice to Management

    You need to move forward with change and not sit stagnant in the past. Just because the industry isn't moving forward doesn't mean you can't help it move forward by helping provide the hardware necessary.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Thomson Reuters is the people. They have done an excellent job of assembling some very talented folks. The problem is after awhile the ineptitude of the senior managment errodes away at that talent so much so that they leave the company.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is senior management. Too many of the senior managers spend the bulk of thier time "managing up" versus keeping the focus on the customers and empowering employees to deliver an outstanding work product.

    Advice to Management

    Remember why we are in business in the first place, that is to help customers get what they need so they can save lives. Look around you at the teams of employees that you have and recognized that they know what they are doing, let them do thier jobs. Spend less time having meetings about meetings, let people make decisions and stand by those people. Take two meetings to make a decision, don't micromanage, embrace a 'Yes' culture.
