    I have been working at MCIC Vermont full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It’s exciting to be part of a company with great talent that has focused strategic plans for the future and that supports the elite Academic Medical Centers through Patient Safety initiatives and management of data that is uniquely available to our organization. Strong employee engagement, great benefits, smart people, strong talent, good C-Leadership.

    Cons

    The need for change is immediate based on the changes in the industry and change is not something everyone is comfortable with. Lean organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your commitment.

    Find smarter people with better ideas.

    I have been working at MCIC Vermont full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are above industry level Frequent lunches brought in and lavish outings Work from home once a week Company is privately held so no market pressure to achieve any goal

    Cons

    Company is privately held so no market pressure to achieve any goal Centralized decision-making, lack of transparency and micro-management by “C-level executives” Very low tenure within “executive” team compared to the CEO Low employee engagement scores are ignored and swept under the rug Record high turnover (more than 20% of employees left in 2018) Majority of new “hires” are consultants who do not... care about the company and focus on billing

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

    Pros

    Summers you wear jeans and they usually bring in food. Great benefits. HR is trying to change the culture. CEO is very open during orientation and outings.

    Cons

    People are set in their ways, it’s hard to change the thinking of individuals higher up. A lot of wasteful spending at the top and not enough employee appreciation. Pay requirements are different depending on who you are. The company has several little groups that work together and people are paid based off who they know not what they know. Lots of turnover because of inconsistencies and fairness among individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Have some flexibility. So appreciation. Make sure that pay is compatible with performances. Be fair with all employees.

    Pros

    A small handful of good, competent, professional people but unfortunately their days are probably numbered - those are traits make you a target at MCIC, not in a good way

    Cons

    Outrageously high turnover, sadly not the people who make it such a toxic place "Leadership" (in titles only), starting with the narcissistic tyrant of a CEO who sets the example and allows the dysfunction to flourish unchecked. Bullying and abusive behavior by "leaders", and they far outnumber the few who actually do the work No real leadership or vision, no follow through Promotions and raises NOT based on... skills or talent (again, those things make you a target) but on being favored because you never question, never express an opinion nor have an independent thought, and blindly follow.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the deadwood that sets the negative and vindictive culture starting with CEO. Re-evaluate qualifications and skill sets of staff and see if they actually match the inflated titles and pay. Listen to those who have the knowledge, skills, and do the real work, it's pretty obvious who those people are with just a little observation. Respect and reward them. Too many smart, talented people have passed... through and been pushed out or fired. Stop this, change the culture and listen to the staff - there's actually good work that could be done there but current culture doesn't support that. Or just continue with the dysfunction, clearly there is a group of people benefitting from keeping the status quo.

    Pros

    None at all Im afraid to say...but has great potential with a major shuffle at the top.

    Cons

    This company is misleading. Turnover is extremely high for a small company. the HR dept. is a joke - it's a circus of unqualified misfits. The Atlanta and New York offices are under the same spell. Good people usually get fired because directors do not like to be challenged with seasoned, common sense advice. Directors berate people underneath them when the CEO is not around. People afraid to speak up due to... retaliation.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of tone of communication, exemplify sensitivity and connect with staff more effectively. Exercise leadership, not management. If you are not qualified or not versed in the art of leadership, learn or leave. Allow someone who cares about people to steer this ship.

    Pros

    The people were great. The compensation and benefits were very competitive.

    Cons

    The CEO is a tyrant! This company could be great with different leadership. The shareholders have no idea how he treats employees (especially his leadership team). If you are an executive looking to make a career change, do not leave a stable company to join this one.

    Pros

    Some of the brightest and best come to this company ( but its a short round trip, they don't stay). Good pay and benefits and work-life balance is decent.

    Cons

    CEO. CEO. CEO. Read past reviews. Except for the few "planted" reviews, they are spot on. This CEO would not be successful in another company. He's kept his job because his bosses, the BOD, are 1000 miles away. He talks a big game on strategy, but hires consultants to develop it for him. He controls everything in this company out of fear. No matter how good you are, if he doesn't "like" you, count your days- he... is that petty. If that sounds like a bitter teenager- then you have the picture. He hires very strong people and refuses to let them succeed. Its a one-man band here. He is threatened by opposing opinions. If you oppose, you don't "get it" and will soon be packing. No collaboration here. No matter your PHD, you wait for direction and carry out his plans- the end. Engagement survey responses are a big joke at the office. No one tells the truth because they know the surveys aren't anonymous. The end result is unmotivated employees and constant turnover.
