    We are helping our customers help patients! And there are so many opportunities to innovate to add more value and help drive improved outcomes for more patients. The executive team has doubled down on our focus on innovation. The future is bright!

    Cons

    It's difficult to be the smallest competitor in a market. But we are working to make this our advantage!

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Talyst full-time

    I have been working at Talyst full-time

    Pros

    A desire to work on some neat stuff, but only a desire.

    Cons

    Careful if you are one that can think through problems on you own, you'll need to do it the way they want even if it would make things harder. They will want performance and stress functionality before basic functional. Rather disappointed on how thing were represented in the company before getting hired.

    I have been working at Talyst full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Insurance has lower deductibles, smaller office and relatively happy environment, not much micro-managing here, dog-friendly, the work-life balance is very good and you don't need to give them too much information to get time off, great accumulation of PTO.

    Cons

    Below industry standard pay, insurance premiums are very expensive if you need to cover more than yourself, insurance is pretty basic benefits - nothing to wow over, work-from-home is discussed positively to in the interview process and then not available.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to build stability into the company across the board, listen and respond to concerns from employees.

    I have been working at Talyst

    Pros

    A Great Company To Work At It has been 3 months since I started working at Talyst Systems, LLC. I always feel lucky that I got the opportunity to work at dream place like this. There are many great things about Talyst. First, Talyst provides a very friendly working environment. Office area is spacious, It support is operated as professional as big companies, and health snack like fresh fruits and nuts are provided...

    I worked at Talyst

    Pros

    After spending 5 years at Talyst, I have seen it change from many executives with all individual decisions (Walls Up) to an open door environment. This change spearheaded by Carla Corkern (CEO), positioned people to new roles more related to their strengths. Adding tools like company meetings, and 1on1 with the CEO. This provided great feedback and initiated thngs like exercise programs to incentives for employees to...

    Cons

    During this change one of the problems is the existing team prior to Carla's (CEO) taking over a good portion of the employee's were taking advantage of the company with entitlements and overtime, and dealing with these types of concerns usually leads to a loss of trained employees. We addressed that with onsite and virtual training, but for the employees originally at Talyst, they did feel their entitlement was more...

    Advice to Management

    Keeping listening to teams and improving through changes. There will be those who doubt the direction but I recall when all competitors were out to get Talyst and the Klass scores (hospital market surveying) showed our disappointment, but by sticking to the right decisions, within 2 years we changed our positioning on Klass and finally became recognized as a leader.

    Pros

    Great place to work that is focused on business but facilitates good work life balance allowing you to be productive but continue to take care of your family

    Cons

    Lack of formal processes so still working very much as a startup environment but is primarily a result of the ever changing markets they provide solutions to

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key no matter how good or bad the story is which is happening so keep up the great work
