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

    Pros

    Stable employment, never had a layoff in its 40+ year history. Willingness to take new grads straight out of college with no or very little experience. Amazing health benefit plan.

    Cons

    Monotonous work. Low starting salary. Work with proprietary languages so no career advancement outside of MEDITECH. Financially conservative, so not many hiring opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Glad you guys finally switched to the Agile development model instead of keeping the waterfall method.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice and accessible facilities, affordable cafeteria, telecommuting options, great benefit package, job security, lavish annual picnic.

    Cons

    Low salaries, promotion from within results in poor management, if you stick around long enough you can become a supervisor, but in general no career advancement. It has always been well-known that Meditech employees leave after 2 or 3 years to work in hospitals where they make 20%-30% more money, but these last 3 years there has been an exodus of seasoned employees (6 to 15 years) that is indeed worrisome.

    Advice to Management

    Hire supervisors and managers with actual project management skills and experience, don't invest more money on facilities, as a matter of fact get rid of some, lower the cost of maintenance and use that savings to give a deserved raise to good employees. You've got pretty smart people working for you, keep them! Need to get rid of Senior Management and bring people with new ideas and long-term vision to catch up with competition, otherwise future looks grim.

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

    Pros

    This is a great company for anyone looking for a long term career. It is in an industry that is going through a lot of change which makes it exciting to work at. The overall attitude of the company is very comfortable.

    Cons

    The salary is not as high as at comparable companies but this can be made up for in the overall benefits and career security.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to hire more development resources in order to get the software turned around more quickly. If you deal with customers sometimes the timelines on product changes can be very frustrating.

    Pros

    Working in healthcare IT, where there are many opportunities...

    Cons

    Very low salary which tends to attract, and retain an unmotivated workforce. Those with ideas, and ambition do not stay long.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay levels and offer greater incentives to keep top performers.

    Pros

    Culture of company is great. It also gives you some great experience.

    Cons

    The pay is awful, and the higher-ups know it, and they do not do anything about it. Results in high-turnover which can be stressful for other employees.

    I worked at Meditech full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible. Great review/feedback structure. Good way to be introduced to the EHR/healthcare industry.

    Cons

    Pay is substantially lower than industry. Travel can be a burden. The brunt of the workload is put on the work horses while others coast by.

    Advice to Management

    Start letting people go that do not do their work. Acknowledge those that do. Pay those that do the work for their efforts.
