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

    Pros

    Management is very realistic about what we can achieve as a team and individually. My manager is very supportive and our team creates value for the organization every day. Fortunate to work with an organization which values integrity and honest/open communication. Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Nervous about layoffs, but that's the environment we're in.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your staff, while being truthful and honest about our company's vision and future.

    I have been working at MedImpact full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ability to help shape the future of our company and the PBM industry. Pay is very competitive. Benefits are very good. San Diego headquarters is beautiful Entrepreneurial spirit! Don't answer to Wall Street

    Cons

    Part of our leadership are new to the table and eager to drive change needed for the next 30 years; while the other part of leadership is stuck in the past and not easily able to accept change and what is to come. What worked before will not carry us forward.

    Advice to Management

    Drive what's best for the customers and the staff and not what is best for you individually. Focus your energy on the team that got you to those positions and provide them the direction to your vision and help them see the future beyond the day to day activities. Hold folks accountable to doing their job so that all others don't continue to carry the load. If you have bitter, angry employees manage it - don't let...

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at MedImpact full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Able to gain knowledge of PBMs, decent pay, reasonable PTO which accumulates

    Cons

    Management does not hold peers accountable for getting things done. This is becoming an insidious problem, one that is stalling strategic initiatives, producing backstabbing and even sabatoge. This is causing the exit of hard working, motivated and talented individuals that can move the company forward. In short the business suffers, as does every productive employee.

    Advice to Management

    Management step in and hold everyone accountable.

    I worked at MedImpact full-time

    Pros

    Location is nice. Pay meets average salary for role.

    Cons

    Toxic work culture. Unpaid bonus despite meeting bonus targets. Little to no employee recognition (from management). Cost cutting measures despite the company purchasing an expensive private jet for the CEO. Lack of a clear product roadmap. Promotions only in top levels of leadership. There appears to be no upward mobility for the general masses. Tech is old and neglected (huge technical debt). Outside contractors taking...

    I worked at MedImpact full-time

    Pros

    MedImpact has grown steadily for 30 years and has a tremendous amount of long-term, dedicated employees who truly love what they do. The collective spirit of many still shines bright, even as the organization steers through some difficult waters with client terminations and market consolidation. The location in San Diego is central and growing, and investments are being made for additional space at other offices nationwide....

    Cons

    The organization is not being properly managed by the ownership and its family. Nepotism runs rampant, including favoritism and absolution of failure without consequence. In the past six months the organization has seen nearly a dozen well-respected Directors or VPs leave because of non-existent long-term growth strategy from the CEO, discontinued long-term incentive programs and an overall sense that the “MedImpact...

    Advice to Management

    Sell and move on. Get out of town and go count your money or whatever makes you happy. Pay off all the debts and loans, and let the company recover and thrive. Oh, and take the entire family with you. There are great people in the company, but they are handcuffed by the destructive culture and behavior of the small few at the very top. The organization is starving for more communication, more access to information...

    I worked at MedImpact full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are no pros at MedImpact.

    Cons

    Horrible company with horrible management. The owner is absent dealing with lawsuits and his other companies, basically using MedImpact in order to extort capitol (over 300 million in "loans" so he can live like a king). In two years did not receive a single bonus, although this was promised. Promotions are based on politics and nepotism, not skill or talent. The atmosphere is poison, the culture non-existent. Lay offs...

    CEO is hurting the company's future and financial position with ongoing actions and decisions. Needs to bring in an experienced leader.

    Management is stuck until CEO moves down or away from role.
