    I have been working at HealthStream full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of good people work here. It's a large enough company you can probably move around if you don't like your current department. If you can stomach the kool-aid you'll probably like it.

    Cons

    Some folks in HR and senior management have an almost cultish attitude toward the company and seem to think they're doing you a great big favor by allowing your employment. The "classes" they force employees to take are maddening. The test you have to endure after the classes are insulting. They love to brag about their benefits, but I'm not impressed. PTO is limited, health plan is too expensive (for families) etc.

    Pros

    The company attracts high quality employees. Strong team bonding and great hiring of quality people who care. Nice office location that is located in the #Gulch, #Nashville.

    Cons

    CEO has negative view of women in positions of leadership. Uses veiled mechanism to avoid promoting women to executive positions - such as *not believing in having a defined career path* instead people *prove their worth through unique circumstances*. Provided examples using a long winded patronizing lecture to senior management that glorified #maleonly examples that date back a decade. Really? Not a single female accomplishment in 10 years that warrants mention? Huge compensation disparity between men and women.

    I have been working at HealthStream full-time

    Pros

    People are friendly and the building is cool. The company works hard to have employee engagement opportunities such as monthly birthday celebrations, holiday parties, employees committees - sports, events, lunch and learn, etc. However, it would be great if management would participate.

    Cons

    There is a general sense that the company is making good money so why change anything. This breeds a level of complacency in the company that rewards status quo and punishes benchmarking, incremental improvements, process reviews, or any other new ideas. The company currently survives by under-cutting pricing by selling access to its platform that is at least 5 years behind its competition and is not scaleable. Healthstream brags about holding a large percentage of the market space but the fact is that most of its sales are going to HCA-related (Frist) companies. More and more companies are leaving Healthstream for competitors because they have better functionality. This single-source strategy is not sustainable for the long-term. The CEO, Bobby Frist, is at best a part-time figure head. There is no clear leadership in the company and as a result, each member of senior management has his own agenda, non of which is aligned with the other. This disjointed management has resulted in very reactionary strategies in product development, sales, operations, marketing, finance, and IT that have cost the company millions in lost opportunities, wasted effort and lost talent (high turn-over). Unless their are significant changes made in the very near term, the ongoing viability of this company is questionable.

    Pros

    Located in coolest building in Nashville.

    Cons

    Senior management who have imbeded themselves into the knowledge chain and carry an unprofessional attitude when new smart thinking is introduced. Inability to define product requirements. Inability to execute. Inability to know or recognize good talent so as a result have many subpar performers. A zero creative quotient. Now forceing the development staff to move from cubes and to sit around cheap tables. This decision was made by a cto and vp who are not visionary without really listening to the staff. I personally know more than half of the staff is looking else where for employment because i am hiring and have had thier resumes come across my desk. "Butts in seats" is something I've personally heard a few of the leaders say. Seriously?
