    I have been working at DataFile Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a business but still feels like a family. Our CEO makes sure that we understand, that we exist to help health organizations keep the patient focus as their top priority. The top core value we are held to, is being authentic. We work extremely hard and we are rewarded by leadership with companywide events that make every hour of effort worth it. Working at a company like this, makes every day easy, even if it's...

    Cons

    Growing company. Normal bumps in the road as we continue to grow at a fast pace.

    Advice to Management

    *If it is possible, find a way to show the employees that their feedback is really being considered, when appropriate. This is every employee’s advice in every company in the world, but this is management's burden to bear.

    I worked at DataFile Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Solid group of employees with great ideas.

    Cons

    Horrible executive team that couldn't find their way out of a wet paper bag.

    Advice to Management

    Logical advice falls on deaf ears.

    I have been working at DataFile Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    DataFile is a quickly growing company, which is great if you want the opportunity to not remain stagnant and to truly grow personally and professionally -- though it doesn't come easily. There is a lot of of hard work that goes into it, but I'm lucky enough to have created my own opportunities by putting in the time and work and voicing what my goals were. DataFile is the type of place you can have your voice heard or...

    Cons

    It's a growing company -- there are growing pains. It's a company that is moving and adapting and because there is a younger management demographic sometimes the management is learning alongside you. Adaptability is huge in being successful here. Honestly the pay schedule can be a huge con for some. The way the pay periods run from 1-15 and 16-end of the month -- if you start on the 1st of the month -- you may not...

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to retain and reward those showing hard work and initiative -- and continue to offer growth opportunities. Otherwise keep on keepin' on as I love coming to work every day!

    I have been working at DataFile Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent starting base salary (hearing they are going to lower this) Most employees are great people and fun (made a few life time friends)

    Cons

    COO / CMO is disengaged, not realistic, micro-manager, plays favorites and for some reason runs the sales team. Motivates by threatening instead of encouraging the sales reps. Goals are more about demos held and call volume instead of money brought in. Its quantity focused instead of quality connects. Trained us on one service five months after 4 of us started. They don't equip you on knowledge of the services. Long...

    Advice to Management

    Hire a leadership consultant. Put your ego aside. Learn the healthcare sales industry. Care about YOUR people. Listen to your employees. Be decent and caring. Learn to motivate through bonuses and make work fun. It doesn't have to be as miserable there as you are making it.

    Pros

    Great company to work for! really cares about its employees. Also just invested a lot of money into the sales team. Don't see myself working anywhere else!

    Cons

    only con I can really say is they sales process is a really slow one just with the nature of what we sell and who we sell it to.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what youre doing!

    I have been working at DataFile Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are many reasons to work for DataFile, but I think the most compelling is the fact that one is allowed to make mistakes and grow with young company. While relatively young, DataFile leadership allows for professional growth and will trust the decisions and allow the mistakes as long as one learns from them. I cam from a very big/corporate environment and spent almost 7 years in agony, but now DataFile has given...

    Cons

    I think the only "con" is the growing pain of a new company. that is simply a reality of where DataFile is, but it is natural . This is not discouraging, however, but gives me excitement that big things are coming around the corner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Don't go changing as things get bigger and the company grows.
