Pros

Programmers are trained well for the job they are supposed to do. You're paid for the training. The company is flexible and supervisors and managers are very understanding.

Cons

The pay is very sub-par, compared to other companies with similar jobs. Not all employees get along well. I feel that a good deal of the employees seem to be undertrained in what they are supposed to do.

Advice to Management

There are some major changes that are needed on the lower end of the scale. I'm slowly watching the staff dwindle, whether it be transferring within the company or leaving the company. At this point, I think some serious changes are needed to redistribute work more evenly.

    Pros

    Meditech only promotes from within, giving all employees multiple advancement opportunities. The corporate culture supports keeping work balanced with family life. Almost all programming is done using their own languages. For those interested it presents the chance to work on the OS and tools not available elsewhere.

    Benefits are designed to reward long term employees, not those already looking to hop to another job.

    Meditech is very stable and has never had a layoff. The company maintains profitability even during economic downturns, ensure the security of your job.

    Cons

    Having to work with alot of entry level employees. Quality of newly promoted supervisors varies widely.

    Advice to Management

    Allow stock purchases by newer employees earlier. A new building in Florida would be a good thing.


  2. "A very solid place to work....especially if you don't want work to consume your life completely."

    Pros

    Very good benefits package that includes health/dental, profit-sharing plan and generous bonus program. You don't feel like management is constantly pushing for you to stay late and work overtime, which allows for a nice regimented work week. Hospital software in general is a stable enterprise, but Meditech's outstanding reputation amongst hospitals throughout the US, Canada and overseas means that your job is secure.

    Cons

    Disconnect between middle management and lower employees can be frustrating. Not many low level employees can tell you what their manager does on a day-to-day basis due to them being tied up in meetings for the vast majority of time. Currently, there is not enough staff to meet the growing demands of our customer-base.

    Advice to Management

    Treat lower-level employees as people....not statstics or numbers. Robots aren't doing the work....people are.
