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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, you don't have to do a lot of work to get by, chances of getting fired are slim to none. If you can't get a job out of college come here for two to three years tops then leave.

    Cons

    This company promotes laziness and does not encourage excellence. If you are a lazy person who could care less about your career then MEDITECH is the place for you! Most people who are in a managerial position are people who didn't deserve it, it was just because they were here for 15 years. Titles mean nothing, certain people get certain privileges while others have to pick up the slack. Core is basically a time clock to see if you are putting in your 8.5 hours, if not Accounting will ask you about it. The company is going nowhere and the only people who stay are the ones who cannot get a job anywhere else. If you have any ambition you will be miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house starting from the top.

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

    Pros

    1. Great coworkers, supervisors and managers. This is big for me because I enjoy working with the people around me.
    2. I think Meditech has a good long range plans for company future.
    3. Management is really flexible with work start time.
    4. Can work from home 1 day a week.
    5. Health benefits are decent.
    6. I think the work/ home balance is great. I work about 45 hrs/wk.
    7. No layoffs in a very long time.

    Cons

    1. Unfortunately, the pay is low pay (Way below market value).
    2. High employee turn over due to low pay.
    3. No 401K plan.

    Advice to Management

    I think small changes in employee compensation would help to keep good employees from leaving. I can starting people with low pay but 2/3 years down the road you need to bump the pay up for good employees.

    I worked at Meditech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gym on sites, but given the work schedule hardly anyone uses them. Free coffe. Depending on your job the provide you with a Lab top.

    Cons

    Managers and Supervisors can not lead ants to a picnic. They poses little to none management skills, let alone teaching. There is no HR which is no bueno. Your team leader is your groups HR and every group has a leader hence, every group has a different HR. This is very bad since many employees can do what ever they want. i.e down time go on face book watch youtube surf the net. Totally unprofessional work environment, not to mention unprofessional when eating out on lunch break. Its an environment for kids not adults. Heaven forbid you come to realize what all this means if your a new hire and read this. If you work for this company any and all skill are non transferable. So if you like EHR you need to go else where.

    Advice to Management

    LOL. What management? The company tells you we have no HR and we being doing business as usual for 45 years so are they really going to listen anyway.

    Pros

    - young crowd
    - depending on which group you're in, work from home is a perk
    - ability to flex hours
    - great health/dental (company covers 90%)
    - management is okay depending on what group

    Cons

    - high turnover rate
    - poor salary
    - promote from within (comes wit tenure), but not always talent
    - poor product, not enough resources to code
    - no HR
    - no 401K

    Advice to Management

    - promote those with talent
    - increase salary
    - keep those who have skills
    - hire more; there's clearly a lack of resources in every department

    Pros

    Nice folks. Laid back...mostly (struggling right now)

    Cons

    Low pay. No career growth. Limited transfering. Lots of kids out if college. Very little effort put into retaining employees. Every year seems to be a lean year for raises unless you are a developer. Promote from within means management lack the skills they need.

    Advice to Management

    Find oppertunities for staff who work hard. Pay employees better. Good health insurance, so thanks for that.

    Depending on your management structure there is a lot of Flexibility. A huge opportunity to learn, annual bonus and great benefits

    Cons

    Extensive travel in the implementation role. High turnover rates. Pay is lower than industry average because this is typically an entry level role.

    Advice to Management

    Personally, I do not have advice to my management team. My experience with management has been very positive.

    Pros

    Greater starter job for recent college grads. If you put in the time and effort you can advance and beef up your resume.

    Cons

    Minimal room for advancement and there are a lot of things that can change for the better but they are set in their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Become more in touch with the grunts within the company and find out what works and what doesnt and what can be improved easily
