    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.

    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 (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Meditech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent experience opportunities for recent college grads. MEDITECH can open a lot of doors that weren't even there before. Company sponsored travel gives the opportunity to see much of the country, including both out of the way and urban areas. Typically, direct coworkers are of the same age group leading to a lot of comradery between peers. Benefits were awesome including health and dental and annual company wide bonuses (which admitted faltered in my later years there)

    Cons

    Industry low salaries. Often expected to work long hours with no extra compensation. Very little room for advancement. Favoritism and tenure based promotions rather than merit. Ver

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, compensate them fairly, and maybe they'll stay more than 2-3 years.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Great Benefits
    Easy work/life balance

    Cons

    Culture problem. If you are looking for somewhere to coast under the radar forever, this is for you. Company rewards tenure, not ability or innovation. They always side with the people who have been there the longest. Unfortunately, since they exclusively hire out of college, there is no influx of new ideas. Definitely culture of "we've always done it this way, why change"

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change and existing technology. Not everything has to be created from scratch. Using Java from time to time won't kill the product. Also, reward employees who contribute, and you won't have as much of a brain drain.
