    I have been working at Meditech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Secure career that you know you will have for life. People rarely get fired even if they are lazy and inefficient. If you have kids they are very accommodating.

    Cons

    -No performance incentives
    -Work is not split equally
    -Depending on your job you will bring work home or come in on the weekends to meet project deadlines and receive no gratitude.
    -Flexible hours and part time is only available for people with children or extenuating circumstances it is not something you can expect to get going into the job.
    -If you plan to leave you cannot give two weeks notice like a civilized person would. MEDITECH physically escorts you off the premises the day you quit. Usually by noon.
    -Expect to be sitting next to other people who slack off, but make more than you do simply because of tenure.
    -No Human Resource department (they have 2 people you can go talk to about your issues. They have no formal HR or counseling training.)
    -Most policies are set by director, then manager, then supervisor. So everything from what you can wear to work, to what of the pre-defined raise percentages they will apply you for is determined by your immediate management team and there is no standardization across the teams/regions.

    Advice to Management

    This family atmosphere worked when the company was small. Now there are over 4,000 people so policies need to be more in line with standard companies. Performance incentives need to happen. People should have higher salaries and only get bonuses if they deserve it. It should not be something given out to everyone because everyone does not do equal work. When people quit (as they often do) their spots should be filled immediately. If you had the money to fill that slot before then there is no reason you need to wait for additional revenue to hire someone again. The only thing that does is place more stress on your current workers, their relationship with customers, and effects their attitude at work. These people bring moral down until they eventually quit and the cycle continues.

    Pros

    Good benefits

    Fun work environment

    Very stable industry

    Good leadership & coworkers (depends on the group - mine was young and laid back)

    Great career path after getting a few years experience and leaving MT.

    Cons

    Salary is horrendous (and no the "great" bonus does not compensate for this).

    Gossip dominates this place

    Little room for growth/advancement unless you relentlessly kiss ass or are friends with your
    supervisor)

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change !!! Not every policy made in 1981 is still relevant today!
