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

    Pros

    Has enough good developers and talent.

    Cons

    Doesn't have enough mid-level managers who have both vision and technical competence.

    Advice to Management

    Too many marginally good products and not great ones. Take the painful step of killing off some products now before you have to drop them anyway while going out of business.

    I have been working at Caradigm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very talented people, some good team work (highly dependent on the team) good technology stack, and overall good benefits though it has been going down every year. Lots of problems to solve and a step in the right strategic direction ... before halting everything and abort plans that would have brought long-term growth.

    Cons

    Cronyism, uneven level of aptitude between the different teams, lack of direction and changing priorities on a monthly basis, lack of career growth opportunities apart from a few lucky ones that got promoted based on obscure reasons

    Advice to Management

    Don't shoot for the North Star if you don't have the capabilities or the commitment. Make sure people are promoted based on results. When starting a project, make sure you want to go all the way in order to obtain the expected ROI.

    Pros

    Its a job but it is unlikely to be a positive contribution to your CV.

    Cons

    Terrible, terrible CEO and leadership team, GE the owner have no strategy for healthcare and therefore no one has a clue where Caradigm fits into the picture, indeed, it doesn't at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Leave and let GE appoint some people who understand the market and its business needs.

    Pros

    Good compensation package, work is on and off.
    Some interesting work going on.

    Cons

    Very top-down approach to design and development. You are supposed to shut up and do what you are told.
    No long term goals that I can see. Very reactive. Some nepotism.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, remote work options available, tuition reimbursement, great industry, positive working environment

    Cons

    Health benefits have gone downhill over the past few years, career growth is fairly stagnant here, not much pay increase over the years

    Advice to Management

    Make changes to healthcare plans, and pay structures to attract top talent and it will be a win/win for everyone.

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

    Pros

    It is still operating which is a miracle considering the change in management at the top level and the recent layoffs.

    Cons

    Before the termination of the CEO last April, I would have rated this company at least a 4. Since that time, it's as if the executive leadership has disappeared and the company has completely lost its direction. I don't expect Caradigm to last more than another year and would not be surprised if they are gone in the next 6 months. Mid-level managers are in a complete meltdown and the rest of the employees have no idea what they should be working on. They are scared to death that they will be next on the chopping glad and with good reason.

    Advice to Management

    The best thing you could do for the company and its employees would be to simply show up. The fact that the new CEO uses sticky notes on his door that say "do not disturb" gives a bad message to the people he is supposed to be leading. Get some decent advice regarding how to communicate with employees. Whoever is consulting the current CEO needs to be fired.

    Pros

    Never a boring day. If you like learning about a myriad of technologies and how they interact then you'll like this job. Very flexible with schedule. Fair pay with opportunities for bonuses. Opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    When I first started out benefits were great but are slowly being chipped away. Uncertain future. Management used to be very hands off but are now starting to micromanage.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with employees. Provide a clear picture of where the company is and where it plans on going. Instill more pride into the employees for the company and the products they support.

    Cons

    1. Needs better kitchen management :-)
