Pros

The benefits, such as health insurance and vacation/sick time, are unparalleled. Management is very receptive to employee feedback and the group setting is very personal and friendly. There is ample training provided. The food is awesome!

Cons

Starting salary is low compared to other companies in a similar industry (but this is outweighed by the generous benefits). The company is dead-set in their ways and are somewhat reluctant to change.

Advice to Management

Be more receptive to suggestions from employees about how MEDITECH can change or evolve to better compete in the industry.

    Pros

    Low stress, Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Old antiquated technology. Software is mediocre jack of all trades software but master of none. The company sells a lot of software because it knows the political game and it sells to a technologically primitive sector. There is little room for technical growth or career advancement because of it. We also do not attract good talent also because of it. Hence our software will always be mediocre at best.
    In the short term of course, the company will continue to make gobs of money, but how long will that last?

    Advice to Management

    Partner with more dynamic technology companies and incorporate into our technology. Even look in buying them or build a new R&D team with the best talent and completely re-engineer the product, but that will be a touch ask.

    Pros

    For those that have ever had any job experience, you will be able to appreciate working for a company where you are respected, appreciated, and treated well. They have old fashioned values that are rarely seen in the world today, and it is a company that you can work at, for your entire career, rather than jumping from job to job looking for more. Just like anything in life, when you have put in your time and effort, you are rewarded. The rewards are flexible hours, profit sharing, telecommuting, more vacation time, as well as advancement opportunities, stock purchasing, and job security. The work environment is relaxed, and all of the buildings are beautiful. The cafeteria's are run by the same caterer, the food is great, and is subsidized by the company. I should also mention all drinks are free, and soda in the machines is just 5 cents. The company prides itself on the importance of family, and works with employees to create a good balance. There are three main events in the year, that make this an incredible place to work. The company picnic, the Holiday party, and year end bonus. The company picnic is like nothing you will ever see at another company as long as you live. It has puppet shows, magic show, pirate ship, horeback rides, food, rides, and drinks, as well as gifts. During the holidays, they give all employees a ham, turkey or lasagna, and have a Holiday party that has an unbelievable array of food. The year end bonus is the most anticipated day of the year, and is very exciting. When the employees do their job well, the company does well, and it will show in the bonus. It is a great incentive program!
    Even as a new employee, the benefits are extremely generous as compared to other companies. I have watched many young employees quit, to work for hospitals, and more money, only to find they are at the mercy of the hospital budget. They are often the first to be laid off, as they are non essential employees. For those that take this as a first job, and see the salary as the only thing of importance, I guess they will need to learn the lesson for themselves. As you get older, your priorities will change, and a company that values the importance of life outside of work will have great meaning. The relationships you will form with long term coworkers, and the respect of a company that holds it's employees in such high regard, will become priceless.
    As a company using proprietary languages, it is not feasible to pay a new employee top dollar just to get them in the door, when they realistically won't become productive for several years. Once they are productive, the salary will increase quickly.

    Cons

    The salaries should be raised somewhat, to adjust for the cost of living over the past several years.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more continuous training to employees, as technology changes.
