    I have been working at Meditech full-time

    Pros

    Department in its entirety is completely devoid of politics and favoritism compared to the other places I have worked. Management team all the way down from the Director are fair and honest people. The pay for these positions is highly competitive and the benefits are way above any expectation I had. I have been full time for 6 years and have received a nice review each year because I in fact am reliable and do my job well. It's very easy to succeed in this department. No one asks you to do anything they wouldn't or can't do. Excellent team.

    Cons

    Company has been in a bit of a lull business wise. I want to buy stock as I believe in its leaders, but it has not been offered. Something needs to change here. Hired on the auspice of the ability to buy stock.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to trust in and reward your most talented management and front line staff. Dump all these legacy do nothing's that contribute less than zero to our success.

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

    Pros

    -Hires entry level
    -Annual bonuses for all staff
    -Family friendly
    -Amazing health insurance
    -Returning to its place as an industry leader

    Cons

    -Stock has not been sold for several years
    -"The Good Get Out"
    -Below industry average pay scales
    -Poor management staff development
    -Compensation is rarely tied clearly to performance

    Advice to Management

    Employees stay and remain productive at companies where their contributions are recognized and rewarded and where they feel that they are part of a larger mission as well as where they feel they have a clear path to advancement. MEDITECH struggles to recognize and reward staff based on their value and contribution to the company.

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

    Pros

    The company is willing to invest in you if you have the potential to be a good programmer but lack experience or a computer science degree. They've got a system for educating you to make you productive and teach you their languages and this is something they've perfected. Good perks and benefits, this is a place you can work at for life, very hard to get fired. Good at keeping work manageable to 40-hour weeks. The people I've seen happiest at the company are those that do a great job during those hours but take advantage of the relatively easy pace to explore hobbies or interests outside of work.

    Cons

    Everything in done in-house, which always feels like they're trying to catch up to industry standards though it feels like they are working to change that. Low starting pay, pay advancements mostly on seniority. A lot of older code and languages are poorly documented, but you can find a lot of stuff if you search their intranet. All proprietary languages, there are some companies that hire people with MEDITECH languages but not a lot.

    Advice to Management

    You've got a very unique company philosophy that works for you, I can't say I know enough about hiring policies to know if paying programmers more for better talent is something you can compete in even though that's a common complaint for reviews here.

    Pros

    Very flexible schedules, a lot of freedom, company is very generous to employees, job security, opportunities to travel

    Cons

    Managers/supervisors are different in every group. Some are more strict and some are very very lax. Some of the examples that leaders set are not good for their staff.

    Company is kind of stuck in its ways and doesn't really consider new ideas or approaches

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to set standards for all groups so that expectations are clear and everyone is being held accountable for their behavior and professionalism

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly, great new hire programs, good for new college grads.... new pay increase for entry level is also nice.

    Cons

    Each group within the company seems to have slightly different rules based on what management team you're under, or if you are in a busier, more clinical group. i.e. Longer lunch breaks, working from home before 2 years, etc

    Advice to Management

    Make rules and policies more universal
