    Engineering at PokitDok

    Pros

    My coworkers are some of the very best at what they do. It's awesome to be around a group of people that are always looking to improve and refine everything they do. It's pushed me to improve my skills and to think more about the overall product and not just technical implementation details. The company operates openly in a group chat system so everyone has visibility into activities across the company. It encourages good cross-team interaction and helps keep operations transparent.

    Cons

    Honestly - it can be a bit intimidating at first to work with a group of people with such a wealth of experience and an intense focus to improve everything about the business of health. Once you get to know the team, you quickly realize that their intensity is all about making the team better. This includes helping team members really advance their careers.

    Totally awesome!

    Pros

    It was an excellent environment for growth - lots of stuff is always happening and people are super excited to be doing it. There's a lot of belief in the mission and no time for BS. The engineers are all very talented people who could easily go to Google/Facebook/etc but choose to be here instead. The business people are also very smart and know how to interact with the engineers well. There's lots of room to make choices that would normally be made for you at a larger company.

    Cons

    It can get a little grueling at times - it _is_ a startup and they take agile culture / commitment seriously. Ultimately though it's not a "con" so much as a matter of personal fit; if you're looking for a job where you can take it easy and work from 9 to 5 so that "work stays at work," keep looking.

    Pros

    This is a really dynamic environment interested in getting things done - and enjoying the ride! As an engineer its great to be somewhere where engineers are a highly valued part of the team. Actually its great to be part of a company where everyone is highly valued, contribution is rewarded, and making mistakes in the name of doing/progress/learning is OK. There are so many innovative areas in the company to build products using the latest technologies, its an engineers dream. The bi-coastal breadth and depth of experience in the company is amazing. There are so many people willing to mentor and help you grow your career.

    Cons

    It can be hard to keep up with all the extremely talented people, so you've got to keep your head up. Well, its a start-up, so there's that.

    I picked PokitDok over Apple, IBM, Google and JH - best decision ever!

    Pros

    My peers have been very helpful in providing on-boarding assistance, while also giving me projects early on. I feel that I am positioned to make an immediate impact here -- unlike other places where you are "hidden in the trenches" for months/years. I am very glad to be working for Lisa, Ted and the PD family.

    Cons

    You are expected to pick things up quickly and figure things out on your own. However, someone is always willing to help you out if you ask.

    Great place to work with really smart employees, working on a mission that is changing the face of healthcare.

    Pros

    Great product. Smart co-workers. Flexible and diverse. Ultimately if you want to change the healthcare system through innovation, data and technology, this is the place for you. You'll have all the benefit of working on a mission that you might otherwise only get through non-profit work, but be paid Silicon Valley wages with huge upside growth and equity potential.

    Cons

    Pace is fast and environment somewhat unstructured, as with most earlier stage start-ups. Currently understaffed, but they are working on growing as quickly as possible!

    The worst thing you can do is believe your own BS.

    Pros

    The tech is about as interesting as you can get, considering health IT is about 30 years behind the curve. They'll probably get acquired by some nameless conglomerate in a few years, giving you a chance to work somewhere better.

    Cons

    It was exciting originally, but PokitDok grew so rapidly while the C-level grew ever less interested in running a decent business. A flood of salespeople came on who would tell customers anything they wanted to hear make commission and left the mess for support and engineers to clean up. Multiple layers of management fighting for territory make sure you'll always be on somebody's bad side. Problems get ignored or publically shamed. When your "chief people officer" gets a writeup in Forbes, and says her best tip is to provide a safe space for EXECUTIVES to air their concerns, the train is well off the rails.

    Supportive Environment and Amazing Co-Workers

    Pros

    Every Employee's individual work is in line with the Company's overall mission and is visible to anyone at anytime. Extremely flat structure (the kind you have to see to believe). Great work environment where it feels like everyone really cares about your success and is willing to help you achieve your goals.

    Cons

    It can be intimidating at times working around so many high achievers and amazingly talented people. Expectations are high but it makes all of us and the Company better in the long run.
