    Pros

    Medidata is a great company! There are so many good things about Medidata, I would like to highlight some of them:

    1. Open culture
    Medidata has a open culture to let people and teams work together and help each other. Especially, there is no cubic and offices for managers, so it is very easy to chat with them and exchange ideas with them. And, there is an very designed internal site that allows everybody ask questions and express ideas.

    2. Enormous opportunities
    Medidata has a lot of interesting projects to let people have a place to use their talent and apply their knowledge. All projects are managed by following Agile methodology. Engineers have autonomy to choose the right technologies and tools. For people who like to continue grow their knowledge and skills, there are internal training courses and external training opportunities.

    3. Flexible work hours
    Medidata has flexible work hours to allow people manage their own schedule based on their work style. Also, there is a work from home opportunity to accommodate people who have long commute by not coming to the office every day.

    4. Life and work balance
    Medidata provides employees unlimited PTO to let people not stress themselves too much. Also, the company yearly party is awesome!

    Again, Medidata is a great company and it is the best place for talent to work at!

    Cons

    There is no con from what I can see right now

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work and maintain the culture when company is growing

    I have been working at Medidata Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Joined Medidata two months ago and I'm a happy camper here. Hiring process was relatively smooth and friendly and my first week experience were terrific. I was welcomed on my first day by employees from different departments, had a team lunch almost every week and a few conversations with my new manager. Office is really accommodating and people are just friendly.

    Cons

    Nothing so far- hopefully there won't be any

    Pros

    You know the phrase "If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room"?

    Medidata is the right room. The amount of amalgamated experience in the company is staggering. I joined a sales team as a software sales guy with a few years of experience, and my direct peers have decades of clinical trial experience.

    There's a lot to learn, but the team is amazingly helpful, and the resources combined have been great, from in person sessions, to recorded learning, to documents & information that are easy to find and understand,

    I was terrified to start, and four months in, I'm still just scratching the surface. If you are looking for a challenging place to work - and one who compensates you VERY fairly for that work, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    If you want routine work, a lax schedule, or dislike change - this isn't the place for you. Additionally, you really need to be self motivated - everyone is more than willing to help if you ask, but you have to ask, because everyone is busy completing their own challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - the company is going in an exciting direction, and it's amazing to have leadership with passion and soul. We are in the industry of changing lives, and we happen to make money doing it, but it never feels like that is our primary purpose.

    Pros

    Good SW development projects. Processes are still not fully formalized, sometimes it is a good thing. You get to work with very talented people.

    Cons

    Co ordination between various teams is not ideal. Market leader in their domain. Need to be more quick in bringing products to market.
