    I have been working at Meditech full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance, depending on group a nice worklife balance.

    Cons

    Poor raises, detatched C level management, only promote managers from with in, leads to super star apps specialists or butt kissers getting promoted, most have no idea how to lead and sends morale into the toilet.

    Good employees leave due to the middle management frustration, supervisors with 1 or 2 direct reports? To much bloat in the middle...

    Advice to Management

    Start following through on empty promises, bring in outside leadership to help engage staff.

    I worked at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Great place to start career. Learned a lot. Great health insurance. Pretty low pressure.

    Cons

    Pay is about 1/2 what it should be in the market. They do not cultivate learning, new skills, training, etc. People in development leadership are unqualified and taking the company down the drain. Promotions go to people who have been there the longest not the most qualified. They do not want to know how behind the times they are , they continue to keep their heads buried in the sand and are hoping for the best.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the good people what they deserve. Get "unbiased" business people that have real life experience just Meditech experience. Step outside the box of running the company and servicing clients like it is 1980. Epic and Cerner are running over the company and with so many "lifers" still there I'm afraid they will not have the job skills to make it outside of Meditech.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good
    Health insurance is top notch
    Employee growth is encouraged
    Lots of oppotunity to network as people are generally open and friendly
    If you get a good group your time will fly by

    Cons

    There are general company wide policies but the "rules" group to group can vary, if you get into a group you dont enjoy it may take years to transfer to another one
    Salary is low
    Almost none of management comes from traditional business backgrounds, and tenure seems to be the endall deciding factor in promotions
    Travel can get tiring

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the salary and more people will stay

    I have been working at Meditech full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working on a product you can believe in that can help improve patient safety
    Flexible hours, not much pressure to work over 40 hours
    Good benefits and paid time off
    Stable - no layoffs in its history, been around for decades

    Cons

    Proprietary programming languages and technology
    Pay is not amazing
    Standards are not that high (you might consider this a pro)
    Slow to adopt new technology
    Massive amount of legacy code that can be hard to maintain

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving towards industry standard technology and drop the proprietary languages when you can.

    Pros

    Job is not challenging. Plenty of time for loafing. Cheap lunches.

    Cons

    Zero career growth. Zero challenge. Zero competitive compensation package. Using Meditech's proprietary programming languages (which date from the 80s) will poison you in the job market if you stay there too long. Know any other companies which use MUMPS? Me neither.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they're worth.
