    I have been working at Valant full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I started at Valant three months ago, and it has so far been an amazing experience. The people here are so invested in both the company, and the product, and most importantly, the customers, that it is inspirational every day. It is also an honor to be working for a company who's product is designed to help Doctors achieve their goals of improving the lives of their patients, and knowing that we are part of making a positive difference. In addition, our customers are very passionate about our software (and demanding in a good way) - showing that what we do really matters to them and their clients. The size of the company is large enough to be organized, and small enough to know everybody. Lastly, the downtown location is really great, creates a lively environment both within and outside the company's doors.

    Cons

    It has been quite a year in 2019, as the company has undergone some significant changes, with new ownership, and with a return to the core of what the product is and who it is for. This has meant some significant changes. In addition, there are significant growth goals moving forward, driving yet more change. Valant is not a place for people who are change resistant and want to do the same thing everyday.

    I worked at Valant full-time

    Pros

    Other than the office location, there aren't any 'pros'.

    Cons

    Management is practically non-existent. Little to no management experience, disorganized, and severe lack of proper communication. The hiring manager continually referred to themselves as a 'Big B----' and I would not disagree. Since 90% of Valant's management team has been internally promoted into these positions, entitlement seems to be a severe issue as well. Additionally, client complaints are through the roof. Leading to an everyday flood of calls, backed up 'complaint/IT tickets', and subscription cancelations.

    - Compact company where everyone is available to listen to you. - Mostly emotionally mature people - 100% covered transportation card (Orca) - Health, Dental, and Vision - Free coffee and snacks Not afraid to come to work every Monday.

    I have been working at Valant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good office location, nice coworkers, decent PTO, used to have free snacks , decent work life balance

    Cons

    * The company wasted millions of dollars trying to develop a product that didn't ever go live, all while promising staff and customers of a go-live schedule that never came to fruition. * High turnover in tech support leading to untrained specialists and unhappy customers * Middle and upper management often did not have formal management training, which was obvious. * Poor pay if you do not negotiate a high salary to start with. * Company consistently has "no budget" for raises or promotions, meaning your career will stagnate here if you stay for longer than 2+ years * No 401K match

    I worked at Valant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Office location was good and most of the coworkers were good to work with.

    Cons

    Company's vision was very unrealistic. Upper management had no idea what they were doing and had very little industry experience, leading to a product that did not work well. There was a lack of communication between the customer side and product side which made it difficult to give and receive product feedback.

    I worked at Valant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Inspiring mission, wonderful team members.

    Cons

    Leadership (or lack there of). This leadership has time and again set impossible expectations to customers which were never aligned with reality. Several talent left the company. Unsure of its path ahead.
