    I worked at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are solid, company picnic is amazing and you work with a lot of really great people.

    Cons

    Salary isn't as competitive as it could be as compared to comparable companies.

    Advice to Management

    Raise salaries for employees for long term employment incentive.

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

    Pros

    Easy and slow average day to day. The bar is set so low it's impossible to not be a top performer. Good recent grad position or desperate for a developer role. Advice: Use it as a stepping stone.

    Cons

    Proprietary tech stack gets you locked out of industry trends. Management wants everything done yesterday. Favoritism is big here. Salary is well below industry standard and doesn't improve but considering how easy it is, it's free money (pro?).

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to employees about growth and advancement opportunities. Be open to new ideas. Software is a fast moving industry which is a struggle to stay current and relevant. Listen to the new ideas and technologies and boot some of the folks whose knowledge and skills have become obsolete. Stop reinventing the wheel.

    Pros

    Consistent and stable, many people here are lifers.

    Cons

    Little room for growth, the work is mundane, little fulfillment and there can be office politics depending on your department.

    Advice to Management

    Use more current technology, make things more transparent for staff, trust your teams more and point fingers less.

    Pros

    You get what you put into the job.

    Cons

    Company is in full cost cutting mode.

    Advice to Management

    Look to sell company to a company like Google. MEDITECH is a dinosaur to most physicians and having name recognition like Google would go a long way to bring in more sales and change the image of the company and its products.

    Pros

    For the software developer role, there is a lot of expectation, but less enforced responsibilities. Work is self guided and creative. The people are friendly and laid back.

    Cons

    Pay is low maybe because stress is low. Performance isn't managed well and many people are not performing up to standard.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize work in a way so things get done making people responsible for their work and also feeling acknowledged.

    Pros

    The culture
    the free/5 cent soda
    discounted lunches
    0 layoffs/job security
    company picnic
    Health and dental covered 90%

    Cons

    Only hire management from within so growth is either hit or miss
    the pay is garbage, less than every other implementation/service job
    It is a very mundane job
    the places you travel are in the middle of no where

    Advice to Management

    there is not much they can do unless the whole scheme of the company is rewritten, so my advice is to make the employees as happy as possible

    Pros

    Great Benefits/ Vacation time /Sicktime

    Cons

    After a 15 years of service termination "due to cause" with no warning or discussion. Profit sharing originally suggested after 20 years would be worth 1 million dollars paid out at $135K. The cool aid is delicious as long as you keep drinking it. Get in and then get out

    Advice to Management

    Hire leadership from the outside...the ship IS sinking do not fool yourselves!

    I have been working at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    -Benefits are great.
    -Easy access to buildings right off of the highway.
    -Flexible in schedules and time off.
    -Telecommuting from 1 to 2 days and maybe more if you're in Development.
    -Company Picnic which provides carnival rides, lots of food including seafood, and various other entertainment.

    Cons

    -Salary is below par especially if you are more technical.
    -Coworkers always try anything to pass an issue onto someone else and some are very tough to communicate with. Immaturity at best.
    -A lot of the Supervisors do not understand their role or abuse their power. Some will try to make your life a living hell and write poor reviews and even low ball your raise. Others have also complained about being severely micromanaged especially now that they can track everything you do with statistical software. Complaining about them and writing critical reviews will get you nowhere and nothing will be done by their superiors.
    -5 cent soda machines

    Advice to Management

    -Pay more to keep quality personnel rather than low ball salaries
    -Consolidate similar Groups
    -Be more transparent
    -Outsource or use more Google products to track daily routines and schedules
