    I worked at MEDRIO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management was great - fun company -happy hours- free food on wednesday - always some sort of group outing and ongoing training for sales teams. Great office CEO is very nice but can lack any direction - VP is the one who is in charge of the direction of company. The old reviews from years ago are out dated the new VP is great- The old VP of Sales was obsessed with himself and straight narcissistic individual who left about a year ago. management does try to get to know you and most people are very respectful and fun.

    Cons

    They had a consultant come in and get rid of people she didnt "like". she sat with me for 5 mins and decided i wasn't right for the company.

    Advice to Management

    You should figure out who your employees are by getting to know their work methods and goals NOT by hiring a stranger who makes a huge judgment and assumption based on the way you look- You should know your employees and team

    Pros

    The company is not afraid to embrace change.

    Cons

    Believe every negative thing you read about Medrio, and take the positive with a management flavored grain of salt.

    Advice to Management

    Be less obsessed with trends and lose the start up culture mindset.

    Pros

    Medrio is a healthy, growing company doing important work to help modernize clinical research. The work is fulfilling, the upper management values and invests in the careers of its staff, and the office culture is laid back. Pay and benefits are solid, and there are lots of cool perks like weekly catered lunch, ping pong and videogames, regular company outings, and a kitchen stocked with coffee and healthy snacks.

    Cons

    The field in which the company works is relatively obscure to the layperson, and it can take time to develop a passion and authoritative knowledge of the work.

    Pros

    Awesome company: fun work environment, fulfilling mission, great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not many! It is a smaller company, so if you are looking to "climb the corporate ladder" it may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    The culture is the number one reason to work here. Sales has a close knit staff with low turn over. We have had some recent leadership changes, but our people are still happy and we did not skip a beat. We do get free food but to keep it real is not all that great. We do not carry a boiler room sales pit like other companies and I appreciate that. We are growing steadily over the past few years in a space that is new and untapped. As a whole, we are profitable, so we do not worry about our next paychecks like start ups do and that's a huge plus. We have new experienced management in place now that is ready to take on the next 5 years of growth. zero micro management. All reviews can attest to that.

    Cons

    Like I said the free food sucks. I feel like we are outgrowing our space. the environment is a bit too laxed, so people tend to just chill at times. We only drink on Thursdays, sales people should be able to drink everyday. The snacks in the office healthy snacks that my dog wont eat. The office can be a bit stuffy because people complain about the A/C being to "turnt". No one brings in dogs anymore. when people get promoted, I feel like they join a new click and we don't hang out anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees. They have been through a lot with all the changes. Spend some of that new revenue on raises for everyone. keep promoting from within, it builds allegiance. Money is seconday, if you love where you work. But still tho, kick us down with some raises, pronto.

    Pros

    Worst work experience I have had. Pro is I am working at a way better company now haha. This place gave me the creeps!

    Cons

    All about drinking and the company is not growing it's backfilling because of high turnover. Horrible management and elitist culture.

    Advice to Management

    Go find a real startup

    I worked at MEDRIO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I only left because I was offered a great new opportunity for myself, otherwise I was completely happy and having a great time as an Account Executive at Medrio. For sales folks, please don't be turned off by some of the old reviews from last year and before. The sales management has completely changed over this year and they have fixed most everything that was complained about. Now, sales execs have their own territory and everyone has an equal opportunity for success. The new quota system contains accelerators that dramatically increase your commissions if you end the year over quota. Customers really love the company and software, I've never before worked for a software company where prospects almost all have such a positive reaction to what I show them. The customers and prospects are really great too, you're dealing with scientists, doctors, and data managers so lots of interesting conversations with people who need a solution. The sales team is great, a really fun and supportive group of people.

    I really enjoyed the company culture that has been fostered by the CEO. There are weekly "stand up" meetings with snacks and drinks and everyone is encouraged to speak up about great things going on or take ownership of mistakes made that week.

    Cons

    - Benefits are kind of lacking, only pay 10% of partner's health insurance and don't offer the best providers.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your benefits plan, please. With your strategy to bring in more experienced and senior folks it will be more important to look at improving this.

    Medrio covers 20% of health insurance premiums for our employees' dependents, not 10%, as stated in this review. We cover 100% of our employees' premiums.

    I have been working at MEDRIO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've had a great experience working at Medrio. I like the people, the products, and the opportunity. The foundation and vision is enforced by the founder and CEO, Mike Novotny, who came from industry and is actually interested in building a great company, as opposed to letting go of control or pursuing the next exit strategy. Medrio works in a regulated industry but keeps things light and fun in our marketing. People who work hard are rewarded and the growth is there for the individual and company.

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say about my experience. I believe that if someone doesn't have a good experience working at Medrio, they aren't motivated by their work, which may reflect on some poor hiring decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
