I have been working at Medidata Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A 10+ year old company run by the original founders and an unwavering commitment to revolutionize the world of clinical trials.

Never in my career have I seen people so passionate about bringing drugs and devices into the global market to improve the quality of life for millions of people.

Other pros in addition to strong leadership:
  * Working with talented peers who challenge and inspire each other
  * Transparency
  * Amazing company parties and other fun after hour social events
  * Cool SaaS technologies like Gmail, Google apps, Jobvite, GitHub, etc.
  * Charitable contributions to causes within the Healthcare industry
  * Contributions to the open source community
  * Career development & opportunities for growth
  * Agile software development and constant delivery of new products
  * Gorgeous new offices in London, NYC, and Tokyo
  * Environemt of constant learning: Brown bag lunches, participation in industry conferences, and many other learning opportunities

Cons

Because the company has been growing so quickly over the last ten years (100x growth), some of the processes and people have been unable to keep pace with the changes. You have to be intelligent and passionate about making a difference in clinical trials to be successful at Medidata. If you're not, you will most likely end up in the same boat as the employees writing negative reviews on this website...

Advice to Management

Never lose your passion for making a difference in clinical trials.
