    I have been working at e-MDs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have made actual personal friends and have enjoyed my work, too.

    Cons

    But, after having been there for many years, I feel more insecure about my job than ever.

    Advice to Management

    When you ask for conversation with the "workers," don't include their supervisors and/or HR. Many of us have grown to a place where we do not trust them.

    I worked at e-MDs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Able to Telecommute 50% of the time during the last 2 years with the company.

    Cons

    Project management does not understand the functionality of the software, yet they are left in charge of scheduling the training. Development does not communicate changes in the product in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    The new management does not appreciate the years of experience that they trashed with the recent lay-off.

    I have been working at e-MDs full-time

    Pros

    The majority of employees I've worked with are fantastic. Lots of good problem solving. There's clearer direction from the new owners.

    Cons

    The health benefits are quite a bit more expensive than buying in the open market. On top of that, they don't even pay 100% for the employee. Also there's been a little too much focus on overly complex processes and metrics which drastically reduce the amount of work that can actually get done. When you have to spend half your day jumping through hoops, it diminishes the amount and quality of work that can get done. A lot of processes are also being developed without the business areas it will apply to involved in the discussion or design at all. It seems that someone who isn't actually doing the work day in and day out would have any idea how to implement processes that are the least intrusive as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that clear communication isn't just coming down from the c-Suite, but that other departments don't have undue influence over others they aren't directly responsible for. People can't do their jobs when they're being hamstrung by people they don't report to.

    I have been working at e-MDs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After acquisition, transparency have increased. Management try to get feedback from employees (or may be pretend to take feedback :) ). After layoff, CEO talked with employees and tried to answered their questions. In past layoffs, they used to just announce layoffs. Employees are nice. Salary level has improved a little bit in last few years. Company is still making profit and its in right direction. New management has some long term plans, that may make company stronger.

    Cons

    Despite things were going well, there was a shocking layoff. As expected from an equity firm, one can clearly see, "money first, people later" kind of attitude from management. Well, its pretty much every other business. Yearly review process is one of the worst. Its completely up to your manager's personal liking/disliking. People lost their bonus/raises for b***s**t reasons. Some managers are nice, who take care of their colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    (**Most of the advises are based on old practices. Hope new management will improve.) - Improve yearly review process. If you don't want to give raise/salary, fine. Say up front. Do not discourage employees by giving bad reviews just to save money.

    Cons

    SALARIES are really low so many talented people have left the company over the years. It is a shame. Not sure what direction the company is moving toward since the acquisition by Marlin
