    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at DrFirst full-time (More than a year)


    DrFirst is a constantly growing and changing healthcare IT company. What I am most excited about this company's support of it's employees to grow with the company, to support new ideas and embrace change. DrFirst has a great culture and has become a second family to me! I work with some of the most brilliant people I have ever met, and have so many opportunities to grow within the company!


    As the company has grown so quickly, it has been difficult to keep up with the "growing pains". It's a constant challenge, but I'm up for it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open ear to the employees and continue to stay open to change and new ideas. The employees are the heartbeat of the company!

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DrFirst in September 2016.


    Had an interview with the internal recruiter. After a few schedule clashes and last minute changes, I finally talked to the hiring manager.

    The recruiter asked standard questions and why I was looking to leave the present job. What was my motivation to look at DrFirst. The hiring manager pretty much asked the same questions, including my ability to lead engineers and experience in hiring/firing folks. My history of experience leading to the present job. Also wanted to know what I did in the current job.

    A lot of companies ask development managers to be a bit hands on and have some recent coding experience. They wanted that too, but didn't ask any technical questions. I had a hard time understand some questions from the hiring manager due to his Chinese accent over the phone.
