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

    Pros

    Leadership, Remote Environment, Casual Atmosphere (engineers, developers, pms were highlights of day)

    Cons

    Turnover upper/mid-tier Mgmt, Male dominated, Typical politics, Overall excluding a few bad eggs, highly recommend.

    Advice to Management

    The politics. Cultivate security in your mid-upper tier so people work not worried about their job, able to trust their team. Made it very hard to break through the 'masks' of many, viewing you as analyzing them, when you only wanted to understand processes. It became very hard towards the end, but still can't imagine a better group overall. Gm was great, the directors awesome, as a woman in tech, 98% were incredible. AGAIN, highly recommend. (Bought by IBM Watson, check them out.)

    Pros

    Strong Management team all the way around. Lots of opportunity to learn new things and there is an Excellent bonus structure.

    Cons

    No work life balance and the culture is limited to your work team and promoted by co workers. Lots of unnecessary stress.

    I have been working at Merge Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    The benefits package is overall pretty good. The healthcare package is especially great. The teams that I work with are also extremely helpful. Management has appeared to be open to new ideas and technologies.

    Cons

    During this time of transition to IBM we have heard mixed things. Some of the promises initially made are not being upheld and as time goes on the actual information we are getting isn't quite as rosy as initially put to us.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to continue to experiment with new technologies. It's also very important to listen to employees concerns with regards to the projects they are currently working on. I'd also recommend doing a better job at either not making promises or keeping the ones that are made...

    Pros

    Merge is a nice place to work. For sure is not the best one, but will definitely teach you a lot about team work, collaboration and core values. Opportunities exists, but like in any other place, you have to have some patience and doors will open.

    Cons

    Too much sales and revenue orientated. There should be more focus on productivity and profitability. Also, a little more focus on their employees needs and career would not be bad at all.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and take care of your people. They are the ones that keep the company alive.

    Pros

    None!!! Very ruthless uncaring company and people!

    Cons

    Merge Healthcare acquired the company was working for (DR SYSTEMS) and the HR person just arrived yesterday and laid off a lot of people almost 25% of the staff.

    Don't bother wasting your time with this horrible company.

    They acquire companies and then lays off the people. They take the products that the other company develops and then tries to market it as their product and then they market as their product as try to say
    they are best in KLAS the product/products.

    Advice to Management

    You are very horrible people, you need to try developing your own products and try keeping the talented people from the companies you buy instead of taking credit for other companies and people's talent.

    My coworkers are fun people to work with, and my direct management listens to me.
