    I worked at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good (they pay 90% of your health insurance). Yearly bonus is nice, but would be nicer to just make more money in general instead of getting a check and then having half of it taken from taxes.

    Cons

    Very clique-y. Doesn't matter how good you are at your job, if your boss doesn't like you you will never move up. Promotes mediocrity - they don't give you any reason to work hard. No HR department so if you have any issues with your supervisor, etc, good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. Maybe try to promote people who actually deserve the jobs as opposed to just the people you like.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They pay 90% of your medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Classic example of a company that does something a certain way because that is how they have always done it. For a technology company it is amazing how many antiquated practices and internal procedures they have. They insist on building everything internally, even if they are bad at it. The open office set up is incredibly distracting and unproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and don't push back against an idea just because you don't think it came from within. Also we shouldn't have a submission process for expense reports that takes a couple of hours. Great use of our staff's time. Read up to date literature about how distracting and unproductive an open office set up is.

    Pros

    The company does a good job of promoting work life balance and in the marketing group is generally very flexible. Paid travel is good as well.

    Cons

    The company is too passive and reactionary for the marketplace, promotion opportunities are limited and compensation is low for the market. They do a great job of training talent and a terrible job of incentivizing and keeping it.

    Advice to Management

    Management shouldn't be so afraid to invest in talent. They lose many of their most talented staff because they refuse to pay them market value and as a result many people leave. They are also too hesitant to invest in extra staff in order to produce products quicker out of fear that they will have too many staff members after project completion.

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

    Pros

    -Yearly raise, bonus and profit sharing -Young work environment -Low cube walls allow for strong team communication -Get into a good industry at entry level (Put in your two years and leave to make 20-30k more working at a hospital) -Putting out a new product that is similar to other EHR products on the market. The new product should allow the company to be more competitive.

    Cons

    -Low pay -Not a lot of room for growth or advancement -Job is repetitive with little variety -High never ending workloads -The MN location does not get approval to hire new employees when people quit, which causes the workload to grow even higher -Very conservative company (any changes take years to implement) -Lack of communication between MN and Boston leads to frustration and unknown future.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to keep talented employees.

    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

    The work day ends at 530, I don't get bothered on nights/weekends like some friends do. Can work at home 1-2 days a week. Good cheap benefits.

    Cons

    Low starting salary, management unwilling to change, too top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    1. more competitive salaries 2. don't be afraid to let go of the under-performers 3. don't be afraid to change things up, as long as they are for the better
