    I worked at Lumeris full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    During your interview(s) you will be pumped with positivity and enthusiasm. It is a really good sell of how they company would "like" to be. It's a pretty laid back environment to work in depending on which department you are in. I was in IT and management was generally flexible when it came to flex time, needing to leave for doctor appt, etc... The company is trying to improve the work culture and hopefully someday they will figure out just how to do that.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, for all the company's efforts it becomes quite obvious that they only have one goal, and that is to go public. Not a bad thing for the execs but not so great for those who actually have to do the work. Upper management is controlled by a single board member (investor) who is not really interested in the success of the company, but in the success of going public. While the company is taking steps to improve company culture, it is all for show. Read any recent articles on hi-tech companies and you will see that Lumeris is simply trying to implement the "hip" and "fad" practices of big name tech companies. If you look at the actual product offering that Lumeris has you will find that it is woefully lacking in current feature/function that even the most basic applications have. Very little effort has been put into making the product something that the user would want to use. The company's latest brainstorm is to switch technologies. They are not doing this because it is the right thing to do for the company but because this is what other hi-tech companies have done. The company attempts to bring in bright capable execs but don't listen to what these people have to say. Upper management is wearing blinders when it comes to what makes sense technically. Lumeris is not able to retain quality people because of the lack of sincerity in building a strong product and future for the company. A lot of very talented people have come and gone and there are still many talented people there. It is just a question of how long it takes for one to recognize the patterns of poor management and the unwillingness to improve for the longer term instead of the quick fix for going public. If you are considering becoming an employee here, please be sure to ask lots of questions about the direction the company is taking from a technical perspective. The sales pitch to join will sound very good but do the research to learn all you can about the company. Look at where the company was 4 years ago and look at where they are now. Read the reviews from years ago and compare them to the reviews being written most recently. Lumeris isn't a horrible place to work. Just don't set expectations too high. It is a great place to learn new skills that will make you more valuable later in your career. But as others have indicated on this site, it is best to see this company as a stepping stone to something more stable and meaningful. Internal politics is rampant and favoritism runs throughout the company. Unless you are joining the company as a result of knowing somebody on the inside, be prepared to protect yourself from managers who are only interested with their own agenda. Your teammates may or may not allow you to succeed. It's all in WHO you know not WHAT you know that matters. So from day one make sure you know who your manager favors and try to emulate everything those people do because it will be your only chance. Within the group I belonged to, if you weren't in the "in" crowd you would be sidelined to an existence of very boring and mindless tasks. There are worse companies to work for than Lumeris. Just be sure to know what you are getting into. When you interview with actual members of the team don't be afraid to ask pointed questions about the culture and what the person sees as pluses and minuses within the company. Try to talk to someone who has been with the company for more than a couple years.

    I worked at Lumeris

    Pros

    Helpful analysts and SMEs, and some very booksmart leaders. Salary and benefits are solid.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn’t listen to the field or to customer feedback. Chosen Few leaders talk a good game, but can’t deliver. Popularity contest among many leaders - if you aren’t in the club, you won’t be valued.
