    I worked at Meditech (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company, good people. Health/Dental benefits are really good/$ & bonuses increase each year employed. They only hire entry level to start so you will never have someone just hired in a position above you. This is because knowledge of the software applications, technology within/getting a good handle on the system, processes and job itself takes a lot of working experience and training with the system. Approximately 3 years to be good and also after that point (3years) you will have the ability to work from home once or twice a week. Good work space environment. Free fountain soda, water and coffee all day. Cafeteria serving breakfast and lunch, food good.

    Cons

    The workload can be a lot and some supervisors seem more focused on the quantity of work/tasks completed rather than the quality of the work and time you take to help your clients. The issues handled pertaining to Healthcare overall, requirements and learning the software system can be very complex. Its not an easy job. It takes a certain kind of person and intelligence. The salary should be more. They don't all value long time, knowledgeable, hard working employees as much as they should. They don't do much to keep these valuable employees, so they continue to hire new entry-level staff and the hospitals/clients suffer for this. Turnover can be high because people leave to make more money doing the same type of work elsewhere. It seems they try to push some employees to quit. I knew of many long time employees including myself, that did not get raises multiple years and minor issues evaluated or the budget were excuses for it. Though certain supervisors still made sure to give themselves raises out of the budget provided..

    Advice to Management

    Keeping long time knowledgeable and skilled employees should be top priority. This, instead of hiring new for less pay. These decisions and ignorance really effect quality of service provided to the clients and employee satisfaction.

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

    Pros

    MEDITECH is a pretty good company. Very long term focused and privately owned. Overall benefits are good. Health and dental is excellent.

    Cons

    I disagree with a lot of decisions at the executive level regarding how MEDITECH develops products, hires and supports staff in their day to day jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Request feedback from your employees on how they think the company could improve in specific areas of development tools, hiring practices and staff development.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Great entry level opportunity for someone looking to get into the medical technology space
    - Great work/life balance - barely anyone (for the day shift) stays past 5:30pm
    - Stable environment
    - Young culture, flexible with family needs

    Cons

    - Compensation is incredibly low compared to market value - after 2 years an employee can easily double base salary in a lateral move to a competitor or consulting firm

    Advice to Management

    Think about career growth more strategically and bring compensation at least to market value - without that you cannot maintain strong talent.

    I worked at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Pros: work from home is an option, able to travel, provided decent onboarding.

    Cons

    Cons: atrocious communication from senior leadership, fired (which was sent via email and no prior conversations stating that I was doing anything wrong) because I did not work more than 50hrs in a week (when I am only paid for 40), zero work/life balance and a mentally unstable senior manager.

    Pros

    They were very good about showing me the ropes and getting me involved with a team. Not too over barring, and everyone there was very friendly

    Cons

    A lot of self guidance and self promotion is necessary, I had to seek out work and explanations on exactly what was needed at the moment

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

    Pros

    Patient, well-handled training, as all jobs are entry-level. This also means everyone in management at one point started at the bottom. Benefits are generous, and geared toward keeping employees for a long time. Have not, in 40+ years, laid anyone off. There is a downside to this, however (see below).

    Cons

    Pay is not especially generous, and is lower than the market rate (in MA this can be a huge deal-breaker). This does not necessarily improve with time, depending on how you intend to move up through the ranks (assuming they become available -- flexibility helps here). Because the company does not lay people off -- which is a good thing on the whole -- there are some people here and there who do not pull their own weight and yet remain. People do get fired, but some people are masters of treading water. These people will become fairly frustrating to anyone who wishes to actually work. In addition, as senior staff becomes frustrated with any given scenario, they tend to leave for higher paying jobs, leaving the bad folks behind. This can cripple groups, and is bad for the company at large.

    Advice to Management

    Value the senior staff, especially at the lower levels. In order to get anything done, you will need people to actually do it.

    Pros

    Very flexible, great benefits, great team, promotes from within

    Cons

    pay is not great, could take many years to be promoted

    Advice to Management

    Recognize staff's work with generous salary increases since base pay is pretty low.
