Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Caradigm full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good work/family balance.
The company works very closely with offshore teams (mostly in India).
Being in healthcare means that it is possible to see/how what you do could lead to improved patient outcomes.

Cons

Leadership is severely lacking.
Middle management seems lost in a fog of denial and back biting.
Horribly under resourced for it's intended goals.
There is no silver bullet in an industry this conservative. Looking for quick fixes (such as hiring folks to write positive reviews on this web-site) only hinder the organizations cause.

Advice to Management

Customers define your business. The role of engineering teams is to provide product for those who work with those customers. Currently this formula seems upside down.
