I worked at Medidata Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

*Great work/life balance
*Opportunities to meet and work with people from all different areas of the company
*Opportunities to meet and interact with corporate executives
*Amazing new corporate HQ in NYC
*Work on products that can affect peoples lives.

Cons

*Three reorganizations/restructures in the last 15 months.
*Only beginning to care about personal growth within the company
*Top heavy on management

Advice to Management

They always talk about the good stuff happening in the company but they don't about the difficult or bad stuff. Need to figure out the company structure and explain to employees what all the restructuring is about.

    Pros

    Too many to list, what I liked best was the bonus and generous time off.

    Cons

    None that I wish to share in this forum except LONG hours

    Advice to Management

    They claim they have an open door policy but that is just smoke and mirrors.

    Pros

    Use of modern technology. Pay is towards top of the market. If you are an long-term employee you were probably promoted many times.

    Cons

    Long hours. Too many mid level managers. Sales and Engineering departments matter, the rest are unimportant. Few career paths.

    I don't recommend working at Medidata.

    Advice to Management

    More matters than the stock price. Listen to your employees, not HR.
