    I have been working at Medecision full-time

    Pros

    The people! Every employee is a true innovator and has a passion to improve health care. Everyone is truly trying to work as a team to make change. It's a fast-paced exciting place to work. People genuinely care about their teammates and their daily work.

    Cons

    Rapid change brings chaos at times and some managers need to enhance their management skills to effectively guide teams through that change.

    Advice to Management

    Great people are leaving due to their managers not the organization. Focus on employee retention and improving management leadership skills.

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

    Pros

    Some wonderful, talented people assembled and ready to make a difference if the executive team will relax the stranglehold that is holding the company back.

    Cons

    Company is still paying for poor decisions by President (acquisitions that added nothing, lack of product development, inability to partner with strategic companies to springboard capabilities). Board should question if they are getting honest and forthright insight to what is really happening. Lots of blame game that results in people working conservatively to mitigate risk.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability at the very top needs to happen as does meaningful product improvement and delivery (truly satisfied customers will sell a lot more product than any marketing or sales strategy). Pick a few innovative partners and run with them (rather than lots of talk and no action). Let your talent innovate and levitate the current culture.

    Pros

    It is fast paced but the work is rewarding. A lot of employees get to work from home and yet we are still a close knit and cohesive unit.

    Cons

    Work can sometimes creep into your personal life if you let it.

    Advice to Management

    We are on the verge of something great so keep pushing.

    I worked at Medecision full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility of working remotely. Good health and dental insurances. 401k is ok.

    Cons

    Working remotely actually helps Medecision as you will always be available. Too much work for one person. Keep working and get NOTHING. Too much of micro management. HR is supporting management and you will never be heard. In fact, HR talks immediately to management after what you talk to them. People at management level try to save their jobs and so throw their employees under the bus. This company is not fast paced. What is fast paced? Because one person has to do more people's job, he/she feels it is fast paced. No learning opportunity. Current CTO & CIO in Infrastructure department believes if you work at least 60 hours a week then you are a dedicated employee. He does not really care about you or your family. And, worse thing is, he does not know what he needs to get done from his employees. IT is driven by only one person (current Senior Architect). Actually he 'became' an architect! If you do not do as he wants, then you will be out of Medecision soon. In short, stay away from Medecision, if you are eying Infrastructure department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, offer rewards for good work and figure out how to reduce all the overtime. It is killing everyone. Stop hiring graduates and promote them in a year or two only because they are your friends. Most talented people are gone. There are still some good people out there. Retain old employees.

    I worked at Medecision full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and you get to work with some great people. Two faced HR people will remind you of your obligation once you get let go. They will call you after you are gone and try to intimate you not keep working in your industry. The Pro is you won't have to work at this place anymore

    Cons

    Product management at this company is siloed from the rest of the software development. Most of the top technical folks have moved on. Good people are worked to the bone. But don't worry, they all get promotions and work 100 hour weeks. Zero sales pipeline but don't worry, we will hire more sales people who don't do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Make your existing customers happy by providing solutions that work. Don't sell until you have a working software product. Stop hiring your friends who can't do the job! The nepotism is getting old and discourages people who are trying to make a difference in HIT!

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home and early/late hour options, people love what they do here, technology of new products and apps are exciting, solid benefits and salary, enlightening vision of the company

    Cons

    Sales cycle and process is lengthy, frustrating, and sometimes confusing due to ever changing healthcare market and approach.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the strategy and apps approach, as it has created a true pop health platform that can and does make a difference in the market with our clients.

    Pros

    Can't say that there are really any pros.

    Cons

    Racist and favorites those that kisses butt to get to the top. It starts from the top down. Management turns a blind eye to the issues because they ARE the problem. You'll see a trend in employees leaving and when you realize it, that's when you're no longer blinded by how fake everyone is to one another. They will be fake to your face and then behind your back already plan for your funeral to be pushed out the door. Their excuses will always be "your position has grown and you no longer fit the position". They've said that to just about every person they've pushed out the door in the past couple of months. However, it's them pushing people out the door so that they can bring in people that they know on a personal/favorable level.

    Advice to Management

    There's no advice that will make them change except for them to realize that their personalities need to change before they get sued one day because they let go the wrong person.

    I have been working at Medecision full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - People - smart, creative, supportive, and team players
    - Results driven organization with flexible and virtual work culture
    - Changing times opens opportunities for growth and re-inventing yourself
    - all levels of employees are empowered to speak professional and candidly about their challenges and solutions
    - internal prioritizarions aligned with marketing and sales strategies. Entire company is in sync

    Cons

    - Individuals who need structure and clear project timelines will struggle in the organization. You must be able to not only cope with uncertainty but innovate through it
    - legacy product knowledge is disappearing as turnover happens. Challenging to support existing customer base and burdening for those with the the legacy knowledge
    - many new processes are bottom-up changes that have a grassroots feel to them. Clear direction from senior leadership is an obstacle to complete buy-in

    Advice to Management

    The focus on our organizational goals is palpable and unwavering. Keep charging in that direction.

    We are a small company that identifies as challenging the "ways that things have been done", partnering with early adopters of healthcare initiatives, and growing an emoloyee base of strong leaders and experts in your role. That has never been more clear.

    Continue to recognize those employees who are adapting to the changes in the organization.
