There needs to be more synergy between the company segments.

    Pros

    Pleasant work environment, nice co-workers

    Cons

    No written job processes for some jobs. Training is almost non existent. Ask 5 people about how do perform a particular job step you will get 5 different answers.

    Advice to Management

    Get consistent processes across the company. There are so many ways to do the same process and no-one seems to have the correct, official way of doing things.

    I worked at MedAssets full-time

    Pros

    Great community outreach. It's a company that believes in giving back.

    Also, working there gives you a good exposure to the Healthcare industry. I learnt a lot during my time there.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros.

    One, they're terribly managed, with reorgs happening faster than the seasons changing. Also, a lot of their core people have left, so management tries to squeeze work out of the remaining people and the newcomers. At one point, I was doing the work of four people.

    Second, it's a company of salespeople. They sell first and then scramble to back up what they have sold. Works sometimes, but not always.

    Three, the sister business lines do not cooperate with each other. Each side is afraid of "losing business" to the other. They seem to forget they're part of the same company. Which brings me to the next con.

    Four, the company has acquired a lot of small businesses over the years. However, the acquisitions have not yet translated into a seamless product suite. The end result is that clients experience each product differently, some good, some bad. This inconsistency is frustrating.

    Five, don't go there expecting a good pay. Treat this company as a learning experience, nothing more.

    Six, while management recognizes that they have problems, they have no idea where to begin to fix them. Everyone's hearts are in the right place, but their heads are all over the place.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get down to the real root cause of your problems, instead of suggesting band-aids. Engage clients in a more meaningful way. And don't try to fix all problems at once.
