    Awesome products, many good people, culture is kind of routine/normal a little boring, but good for family types.

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Minnetonka, MN

    ProsAmazing medical imaging software, some of the very best in the world
    Feel good about helping sick people
    Some very bright people write software there

    ConsLocated in the western burbs so is a long commute for some
    Not a lot of room to grow once you hit a certain point - the most interesting work is taken by people who have been there a while.
    The mgmt showed a real cutthroat side, and lack of imagination, in 2008 by laying off 40% of the workforce

    Advice to Senior ManagementLiven up the culture, encourage more innovation by your employees and you'll be surprised by what they can do

    Incredible Opportunity to change the face of healthcare - stifled by conservative management team.

    Senior Engineering (Former Employee) Minnetonka, MN

    ProsThe technology stack, customer base and the engineering and sales teams. All of which are absolutely top tier (other than the Engineering leadership)

    ConsThe culture and the management team. The profound lack of "getting it" about the asset they have in the engineering team countered by the astounding liabilities they have at the executive levels.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a risk on something. Anything. You may actually learn something that you don't "already know".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Amazing software. Genius coworkers.

    Senior Technical Lead (Former Employee)

    ProsOf all my gigs in my life, this software to me (Vitrea) was the most amazing. I truely was wowed by the potential.

    ConsI had a very deceitful bad manager. I was pressured into pipp'ing guys i didn't want to and after saving the company over 50k, demoted. So in the end, i left with a bitter taste. If certain specific people were removed, i would return.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone - i think the vision is great. I think what you're doing is fantastic. I was there during cuts, which always stink, but you made it past those.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people, broken management.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minnetonka, MN

    ProsHas (had) some great people. But many have since left.

    ConsManagement is incompetent. This results in a very broken culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExecutive management should quit, quite serious. They've done nothing but lose value over the past several years. The board is equally at fault for letting that happen.
