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

    Pros

    Company has gone through some real struggles to right the ship in the past . A couple of reductions in force, and major amount of cost cutting were required to right some major wrongs that the previous CEO allowed to happen.

    Now new customers are coming again, current environments are stable, and some really cool product development is happening again. Has been a painful turnaround but sure seems like there is now light at the end of the tunnel.

    Cons

    Many roles don't have much for backup so lots of people wearing lots of hats.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing through righting the ship, valuing the employees that remain, and bringing in more sales.

    Pros

    The product is really good and we have many customers

    Cons

    some how, with many customers, we can't keep up the expenses. Also, there are many ownership changes. In each changes, there is a pause in development and laid off. The company doesn't look stable.

    Advice to Management

    maintain customers for long run and don't end their contracts because of new management

    I worked at Caradigm full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a sinking ship

    Cons

    After the takeover by Inspirata, they have had multiple rounds of layoffs. Company was hiring while it was up for sale which is weird.

    No clear vision on where does the company want to head
    Management laying off folks since the take over without any clear directions.
    Inspirata wants to focus in oncology segment but does not know how will a population health company such as Caradigm help them. However bought them from GE because everyone seems to be wanting to jump in this business.

    Advice to Management

    Know what do you guys want before buying companies available for sale.
    Please understand that hiring and firing employees as it is not healthy for business as you are paying severance packages.
    Have a clear vision and direction in which you want the company to move.

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

    Pros

    Caradigm was in the right market at the right time but could not execute.

    Cons

    Caradigm had its challenges - as with any company - but could not overcome the burden of Neal Singh as CEO. His hubris and incompetence brought the company down and ruined the careers of many skilled people.

    Advice to Management

    New ownership under Inspirata may provide hope with a re-focus on oncology. A narrow focus and strategy is the right way to move forward.

    Pros

    Collection of hardworking, intelligent individuals striving towards a goal.

    Cons

    Target market was not well defined which led to frequent changes in focus and direction which made it difficult for the company to achieve the desired level of success.

    Advice to Management

    Define goals more precisely and more modestly to achieve them and then build from those successes.

    Pros

    Hard to define any pros....

    Cons

    Several org changes and one-way door out with great talent exiting in past 18 months. Culture has changed for the negative, no direction with no defined target market. Weak leadership with no clear strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a strategic direction with a clearly defined target market, can't be all things to all organizations. Play to our strengths and focus on where there "has been" success that can be mirrored for future success.

    Pros

    Cons

    Toxic. My manager constantly threw me under the bus and provide no coaching or support for career growth. You basically need to play politics well and be with certain skin color to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fooling yourselves - seriously I can't think of how a company this small have so many VPs.
