    I have been working at MCG Health full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    This is a niche company in the healthcare space, but they've got extremely bright (and humble) leadership. Seriously, these executives (a quirky bunch but they do have good senses of humor about themselves) have led this company to much success and stability. I've never worked with more intelligent people, and they actually seem to care about their workforce. Seriously. That's not corporate Kool Aid, the CEO even checks...

    Cons

    I don't think this is a con, but I know many people want a big name on their resume like Facebook or Amazon - and MCG (part of the Hearst media giant) is relatively unknown in the hot tech crowd. However, you'd be making a mistake not to consider MCG - most everyone here I know seems very happy (probably because they're not treated like raw material to be used up and thrown out).

    Advice to Management

    Keep sailing this ship on the steady. You're doing a lot of things right. I think MCG needs to be more visible on the recruiting scene. A lot of people don't know it yet, but this is a place people should strive all their lives to work for.

    I have been working at MCG Health full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Quality employees who give their all each day and take pride in their work.

    Cons

    Agree with review from “Technologist” with out of touch leadership, technical debt, underresourced teams. Too many avoidable bugs because of rushed/hacked jobs. A number of employees avoid work, take credit for other people’s work, or unload work on others. Deadlines on big projects get missed time and again but not much accountability. It’s always someone else’s fault or out of anyone’s control. Passive aggressiveness...

    Advice to Management

    Take an honest look, keep the true performers and let the others go. This may require a 3rd party but worth it. Please stop punishing strong employees who need help and rewarding/giving a pass to those who are not meeting expectations. It perpetuates an environment of mistrust in leadership. The good employees are leaving or looking to leave. To HR: the substance of this review was submitted on the employee survey

      I worked at MCG Health full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      work-life balance is OK.

      Cons

      It has a close-circle environment. It doesn't trust anyone outside the circle.

      We do appreciate the honest feedback. At MCG, some of our core values are openness and transparency which we believe is reflected in our many positive employee reviews. We understand this environment is not ideal for everyone, and we wish you much success in your future endeavors.

      I have been working at MCG Health full-time

      Pros

      Great people, mcg values diversity. Work life balance if your team understand how to effectively break down work (self organizing teams).

      Cons

      ET has lost touch with the organization. Product Management has a huge appetite for new things with very little regard for technical debt while still wanting high quality. This is putting too much pressure on all other departments.

      Advice to Management

      Learn to focus on strategic goals instead of chasing every shiny object.

      Pros

      Very flexible schedule Handsome Salary Quality product you can believe in selling Good benefits

      Cons

      Sales Management is too relaxed Company culture is too calculated (takes too long for decisions and actions to be made) Job duties are too simple for inside sales dept (need more responsibility and more engaged management) Lack of overall engagement/interaction between management and/or co-workers

      Advice to Management

      Become more engaged! Sales reps don't need a babysitter but they do need a coach. Make you're presence known and roll up sleeves and get hands dirty if your reps need help with anything. Be more candid and less pc. Its possible to be honest while also keeping feedback grounded in reality. If someone is doing great, praise them loudly. If someone is doing bad, keep them in firm check. Being too hands off is a recipe for...

      Culture of putting employees first. Work hard, but recognized for contributions. Work truly makes a difference.
