Pros

They have a great product for use with health information technology and management is really friendly and easy to get along with and work for

Cons

the location of the company is a little non desireable especially in the winter when it is snowing and below 3 degrses at times

Advice to Management

The only advice would be to give more opportunities to women and minorities to have leadership roles and show what they can do

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Your ability to make an impact on healthcare.
    Your allowance to own really important projects. Sink or swim, it's up to you (which can be a lot of pressure, but who doesn't want to be challenged and have the opportunity to succeed)?
    Awesome coworkers.

    Cons

    WIth great opportunities comes a lot of responsibilities. It can be stressful because it matters and its up to you. My avg work week is 50-so it isn't a 40 hr/wk job but it isn't 70. Yes, I think about work at home and check email at home. Others list that as a con, but no one is making me do it. I just want my projects to succeed, so I can't help that I'm thinking about them in shower.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - great first job out of college
    - amazing benefits: health insurance, hotel points, airline miles
    - Madison has a low cost of living and, at least if you're IS, you're gone a lot (and thus not using utilities, paying for meals, driving, etc.), which also keeps down costs
    - generally surrounded by smart, high-achieving people
    - a ton of young people, and once-a-month start dates give you a cohort and instant big social circle
    - easy and cheap to add personal trips onto work trips
    - at least for IS, lots of experience that translates well to other jobs (future employers love "Project Manager" on my resume)
    - the food is cheap and amazing (and healthy)
    - nice campus
    - the company has a ton of money
    - you earn money (a not insignificant amount) for getting certified in additional applications

    Cons

    - horrible work-life balance: expected to work late nights, weekends, no questions asked
    - constant travel, often to pretty lame places
    - especially with constant travel, flying into Madison can be a nightmare - often the first flights that are canceled, and you can't fly anywhere except MSP, ORD, DTW, and MKE without making a connection
    - TLs often have no idea what they're doing
    - clients can be horrible and interacting with them is often like babysitting - lots of hand-holding and taking the blame for things that they do wrong
    - the often-collegiate-like atmosphere leads to similarly collegiate drama (people dating/sleeping together/etc) and lots of gossip
    - because they hire almost exclusively straight out of college, it's difficult to really understand the larger context of the field

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to bring in people with management experience. Train TLs and AMs/IMs in management and select people who have those skills rather than ones who are just good implementers. Create an environment that is more supportive of work-life balance and don't act like you can solve all problems by throwing money at them.
