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

    Pros

    Everyone is willing to help, from the person across your desk, to the person down a level and even to the person all the way in Boston. They teach you from the ground up.

    Cons

    Proprietary code makes it hard to find resources to figure out a problem. Sometimes those with the answers maybe busy with other projects or such.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to enrich management positions with great leaders that care about their individual team members.

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

    Pros

    comfortable work environment, great staff, health benefits, lenient rules, telecommute 1 or more days a week, buildings are clean, tons of nice people

    Cons

    Bonus at the end of year is included in your salary so no bonus, low salary pay with little advancement compared to other companies, dealing with lots of slackers that don't do anything...yet get paid higher than you and no diciplinary actions are taken when they are "talked to"

    Advice to Management

    The company would do so much better with these suggestions:
    -Let people work in the building they desire (if it does not disrupt their work)
    -Dicipline or get rid of the slackers sitting there all day doing absolutely nothing (20% of staff)
    -Open full-time telecommuting to those who can (setup webcams if it is a trust issue)
    -Increase the pay to average industry standards
    -Save money by eliminating the do-nothings and paying the real employees what they should be getting
    -Save building space and/or sell buildings by opening up full-time telecommuting

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good resume builder and good experience. Annual bonus is nice. Their facilities are nice. Staff are treated fairly and given opportunities to grow professionally. Professional but relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Meditech is very conservative. They are always looking to improve upon their processes but always seem to be one step behind where they need to be. Their focus is always on the current crisis as opposed to getting ahead of the next problem. Turnover is high, at least within the front line positions.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Not much pressure.

    Cons

    Senior management could make the job easier for the sales team. They are stuck in their ways and don't adapt too quickly.

    I have been working at Meditech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is really hard to get let go here. They give you many chances and really attempt to find a position that works for you once you are hired. They maintain a "small company" atmosphere with little perks and traditions that are generally appreciated by the staff. There are a lot of great people that you will work with here, but unfortunately they tend to move on after a couple of years.

    Cons

    The number one problem with MEDITECH is the pay. They claim to be in line with the industry, but the number of defections appear to indicate otherwise. It is very hard to move up because they reward long-term staff members over those who might have more merit. Hence a number of people leave after gaining some experience, which creates heavy workloads for the remaining staff.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff and raise the pay rate.

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

    Pros

    This company does business in a conservative manner. It is a stable work environment with upper management that is loyal to long-term employees. This is not one of those places where you will be asked to work 60-80 hours each week.

    Cons

    Every large company has a few managers or directors who were promoted because they got in on the ground floor, or because of work they did years ago. Then those same people get a bit too comfortable, cocky, or inflexible. MEDITECH seems to have a bunch of those.

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty to senior staff is admirable. But sometimes new blood is a good thing.

    Pros

    Great Work/Life Balance

    Opportunity to work from home 2 days a week after 2 years

    Subsidized Meals, Free Soda and Coffee

    Depending on your group, you may have the ability to take a few hours for a Dr. appointment without having to take sick time as long as you make up the time.

    Great buildings to work in with free parking

    Great people to work with.

    Fantastic Medical and Dental BC/BS Insurance of which the company pays 90 percent!

    Raises for most every year

    Bonus 3-4% of the total of your last five years of salary!

    MEDITECH invests a lot in training new hires.

    Cons

    Salary - Everyone starts at MEDITECH as entry level with low pay to boot. Even with the great benefits, it takes a long time to get to where you would be at a comparable company.

    Outdated tools to perform your work. MEDITECH refuses to allow employees to use industry standard products like MICORSOFT office. Their inhouse software is inefficient and non intuitive.

    MEDITECH invests a lot in their new hires, but tends to lose most after two years due to the low pay. They lose many of their best and informed employees and because of this, the company and its customers suffer.

    MEDITECH does not hire enough clinically trained employees due to their low pay which makes their product suffer.

    Because of their philosophy of only hiring entry level employees, those in higher management may have been at MEDITECH for years, and for the most part are out of touch with what is happening in the industry or at other companies. For many higher ups, they have never worked anywhere else but MEDITECH since it was their first job after college 30 years ago! This creates an isolation bubble in the fast paced technology world.

    Analog, Late 1970s, telephones!

    Advice to Management

    Do everything you can to keep the people you just spent two years bringing up to speed to where they are useful! Either offer more money to start, or offer a big boost in salary after two years to bring them up to more competitive rates.

    The model of everyone must be entry level to start, is creating an environment that does not work anymore in the fast paced technology world. You need to attract more skilled professionals from the start, and at the management level to stay competitive.

    Avail yourself to the latest software tools and languages. While it is great to have pride in the fact that you have built a company with everything proprietary, the technology industry is becoming much more about interoperablilty in languages and usability.
