    Pros

    The mission is important! If you want a job that postively impacts peoples' health issues and outcomes and medical costs, this is the place to work. Now under Teladoc, it's a growing, global company that provides virtual healthcare solutions for a full spectrum of medical conditions.

    The software engineering teams are enabled via technology platforms, talent, and leadership to successfully deliver value to the business via a lean agile delivery model. The teams are diverse and growing, and there's a lot of opportunity to learn and contribute.

    Good people work here!

    Cons

    Team growth requires some calibration - which is not necessarily a con. If you are timid about a fast-paced environment, this is not the right place for you.

    Pros

    If you have passion for working hard, doing right by customers, members and employees, this is the right place for you. It is challenging work and your voice is heard. People care about each other and the people served. You'll be inspired every day and can easily see how your individual work fits into the overall company mission and strategy. We're a company of solving problems not finding excuses as to why it can't be done.

    CEO is great leader and gets it! He believes the company can be both an industry leader and truly values each and every employee.

    Cons

    It is very faced paced and things change quickly, so if you aren't ready to go fast and adapt to change, this probably isn't the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating. Leadership is sooo much stronger! Still have one chief that is weak that you need to fix.

    I worked at Best Doctors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the employees there are the sweetest. It seems the company does prioritize that the individuals being employed have a good heart and are selfless because there is obviosly a need for a team who wants to address others concerns.

    Cons

    The upper management takes advantage in the fact that most of the employees are good people and stretch them to the point were employees are responsible for management mistakes. Evidence of a job well done will never surface as management often covers themselves and will attempt to edit or discredit a job well done.

    Pros

    The culture of the company was felt day 1. Everyone is connected to the mission of helping others. Great work culture with an emphasis on personal and professional development. Strong push to do the right thing, not the easy thing.

    I jumped around from organization to organization every 6 months-2 years. After getting hired at Best Doctors, I finally felt at home with an organization. They are about their work and helping people. And that passion spills over to employees as well.

    Cons

    There has been a little bit of upper management move around and the uncertainty that goes with it. After the new management has settled in, the organization seems to be more focused than ever.

    Pros

    Helping save people's lives and improving their health, while learning some really awesome Tech! The Engineering team is building applications on top of a mature platform (force.com). The cloud architecture and deployment model is modern. Teams work on incremental delivery of products, and iterate over it. It's truly agile. The app building experience has been thought through including a full deployment and DevOps model. If you are looking for a great environment to grow and learn. The focus is on building Apps than getting stuck on procurement, installs and so on. Teams are very collaborative and want to move things forward.

    Cons

    The team is still evolving within the company, so more work ahead. But these are challenges and opportunities more than cons.
