    Pros

    Having the opportunity to learn about a growing industry in the medical field. Hours were somewhat flexible on the software support team.

    Cons

    Extreme disorganization in every department and very high turnover. Expectations from management were very misleading and confusing. Cube farm environment. Medical benefits were ironically terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent personnel in upper management. Provide better training on the software so new employees are better prepared. Take better care of your employees by providing a work environment founded by good leadership.

    Pros

    I disagree with the posts here. E-MDs is no better or worse than other companies I have worked for. I work directly with Dr. Winn and I absolutely disagree that he is a terrible businessman. I think he is every bit as good as any of the top entrepreneurs I read about every week. Out of the hundred or so EMR companies, he has built one of the most successful and he has done this from his small medical practice without any investors. I have heard Dr Winn say more than once that he doesn’t really want to be CEO. He lives to design and he is damn good at it. He has invented a crazy smart way to find ICD-10 codes and he designed the new web EMR. I have seen or worked with many different EMRs over the years and his new designs are way ahead of everyone else. They are seriously brilliant and he has a great team behind him making everything come together.

    Cons

    If eMDs can get some good management and Dr. Winn and his team can focus on getting these products out, I think the other EMR companies will be in deep trouble.

    Pros

    When I originally started at e-MDs, there were signs of positive growth potential. Please note that I said "were".

    Cons

    The company had a strong software product. Unfortunately upper management lost sight of how to continue in the right direction. They choose to allocate all resources to the new product, so those working on the original product were left "holding the bag". We no longer had the resources or the support of management to do our jobs effectively. There was a "suck it up" attitude from middle, upper, and executive level management. This promoted high employee turnover.

    I worked there for several years and never received a performance evaluation. Each year management said there would be one with appropriate compensation, but this did not occur.

    Advice to Management

    1) Conduct regular performance evaluations. 2) LISTEN to ALL employees' ideas and concerns 3) Support and acknowledge ALL employees' efforts and successes

    Most people are underpaid, some are overworked the rest do very little because there is no reward for hard work.

    Pros

    Good place to start your career or start in healthcare industry. Good place to work if you do not have a family, or kids have grown up. I suspect people come here to retire instead of doing nothing at home. A lot of divorced people in this company also so I guess that also helps if you want to work here. You will also learn what not to do in the future (products, business, technology) and may get to experiment and try new things as long as they do not cost money.

    Cons

    The health insurance is ridiculously expensive for family coverage. This is in addition to getting paid below market. Bonuses and salary increases are rare, plus there is usually some business reason why, yet again, you will not get the bonus/promotion/salary you were promised. Stick around and next year you will get something you will be told. Every year. Even the office equipment, break room machines, computers, and software is old and ugly.

    Advice to Management

    This needs to come from Dr. Winn since this is his company. If you invest in your employees, compensate them properly, have a decent office, give people the tools they need to do their job (newer hardware and software), etc, then the good employees will not leave and then management can deal with the lazy or incompetent ones. Happy employees are good employees who improve the quality of the product and make the company profitable.

    Pros

    Great products, great reputation. I'm proud of the work we are doing. EMDS has better medical software than any company I've seen and I've seen a lot, but they can't seem to get anything finished.

    Cons

    Communication is better than before, but still not good. Some of the upper management is awful, yet they persist. There has been a lot of turnover in both management and employees, some of it good, some not. We have lost too many good people and still have too many losers. Morale is better today, but still needs work. Most people are there to get a paycheck and that's it. Too much finger pointing, not enough personal responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Pay needs to be much better to keep good talent given the management problems. Dr Winn is probably a fine doctor and has proven himself as a visionary and product designer, but he sucks as a businessman. EMDs should be the top EMR in the industry and it is not even close. Winn has surrounded himself with a bunch of yes men who can't make decisions and try to hide problems from him. He should fire all or most of his senior management and start over.

    Pros

    The people. Most are passionate about what they do.
    There is always something new to work on, or a process you can help fix
    Flexibility and work/life balance. There are times that deadlines call for extra hours, but that time is always compensated.
    Annual bonus program / regular merit increases.

    Cons

    The industry demands ever changing priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate greater alignment of priorities between departments. At times it can feel like different departments work for different companies.

    Pros

    Not much supervision and plenty of downtime. Good compensation for travel days.

    Cons

    Low salary compared to other EMR companies, Even the highest paid trainers were underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Consider ways to improve your "train the trainer" process. Find better senior trainers that care about the success of new employees and are not threatened by bright and hard working coworkers. Employees are not fully equipped to train the software because their coworkers do not care to share advice and guidance. Truly evaluate which employees are valuable and not base decisions off of personal preference.

    Pros

    The people and the product are the best part of this company.

    Cons

    Poor communication, weak executive team that can't make decisions, lower than market salaries, no raises, promises that aren't delivered and slackers somehow stay on forever, while people who work hard and perform over and above are let go.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers, listen to your employees, keep your promises, get appropriate resources in place, update your equipment, evaluate all processes, learn from your mistakes, be pro-active instead of reactive, reward hardworking employees with commensurate salaries.
