    Pros

    Small company and good place to start your job career. You are given discretion to take decision to build architecture yourself which is good if you like working without anybody's mentoring.

    Cons

    No one recognizes your hard work. Management has no understanding of how to keep employees happy. Also, don't expect any hikes in your salary ever.

    Advice to Management

    Work on understanding employees needs and keep them happy.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are tight timelines but overall time is managed properly.

    keep up the forward thinking vision

    I worked at ArchieMD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good location, taxes are low. Affordable to live near the beach if you look around enough.

    Healthcare software is a great industry with plenty of niche markets with growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Does a daily to do list email sound like the the best way to manage a complex software project? Thats what you can look forward to here.

     Employees will be judged mostly on how much work they put into their daily to-do list emails. If you learn to use the strike through command to indicate completed tasks you will be treated like a wizard.

    If you spend too long here your skills will stagnate as they do not have a modern process or training. You will have to learn on your own outside work to keep up with the rest of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about modern agile software development and scrum. Invest in the tools that other software companies use such as JIRA for daily task tracking and ditch the to-do lists. Get into the past decade at least and the developers will get more efficient and actually learn how modern software development works.

    Pros

    The company is working on some really cool apps and makes great medical animations. Its exciting to see new products being launched in the app store as well as other places

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems that we could use some more help on various projects in terms of number of people . People do get stressed from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    We could use a few more hires

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

    Pros

    Products are innovative and interesting. You learn a lot and have a chance to become a key player because company is small (less than 20 people). You can work independently without being watched over all the time.

    Cons

    Environment can be demanding at times because expectations are high.

    Pros

    You'll develop a sense of comradery with the other employees as together you endure the self-righteous arrogance of your boss.

    Cons

    Dr. Levine will never appreciate any of the work his employees do. To him they are expendable and eternally replaceable. The environment is a deluded 1950's style workplace that attempts to create products that are on the cutting edge, while failing to do so do to lack of vision.

    Advice to Management

    Just close up shop and let the employees enjoy a better workplace.
