    Uncertain

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting time to be working in health care IT; great opportunity to work on a new project designed to address the current and future needs in the industry; much flexibility for work/life balance.

    ConsInability of senior management to make decision that allow projects to proceed in a timely manner - frustrating starts and stops; leads to being behind others in having a product ready for market - question the viability of the company long-term - not nimble; lag in creating world-class customer service - long history; performance evaluation program is all about structure that rewards high-flyers but does little to provide substantive support for employee development - deadlines are regularly not met by senior staff with no accountability and MJOs are created/revised without discussion halfway through the year.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Depends on whether you're willing to drink the koolaid

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIF you drink the koolaid you will be treated well and maybe even given awards

    IF you lay low you might be able to fly under to radar for a while.. But not for long.

    ConsThose who question the direction, policy, thoughts of the regime will expose themselves as targets and find themselves "managed" out regardless of talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no point in advising those who are self delusional to believe that the policy of "if you aren't with us, get out" is a good management tactic

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Typical KookAid - a lot of talk, little relevant action

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Wayne, PA (US)

    ProsPay is great.

    Thankfully still some good people around, though many have left.

    ConsPoor products and poor support for them. Little if anything done to address either. Just keep pushing out the next new incomplete features.

    Not all, but many ... Managers who don't actually manage anything, seem like they don't actually want to manage, but want a managerial title and, if anything, "lead from behind" and try to apply pressure to get what they want. (a quote: "Let me find out who I have to push around to get this done.")

    Upper management that seems to know plenty about sales & marketing, but little about what it takes to have something clients actually want. (a quote: "Sales cures all ills.")

    A lot of talk about work/life balance, but don't try to actually have work/life balance. Can accrue plenty of time off, just don't expect to be able to use it; or if you do, expect to have to work while you're away.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe problem's not with the staff. It's with the lack of necessary leadership, lack of management, dismal product quality and poor, when there is any, support for it.

    Still hoping !

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Wayne, PA (US)

    ProsThe executive management team talks a great talk. They are happy cheerful people. Hoping this will spread to lower levels of management and employee base. There are great projects in the works.

    ConsToo many bosses and not enough producers.

    Something's got to give

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat individual contributors
    Flexible work schedule
    Good salary
    Nice location with access to walking trail, and many lunch options

    ConsThere comes a point when there is no way possible to fix something. MEDecision is heading in that direction. Communication between departments is non-existent. The culture has turned into a "blame" one. There is so much finger pointing that real work cannot get done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to the saying that hung on the walls... Assume positive intent... Everyone wants to do their best, not have to protect themselves.

    Moving the company closer to city is not going to attract new employees when reviews from former workers are titled "Run screaming". Look within, take stock of the employees and make them feel valued, not stepped on. Then things might get better.

    Wrong Direction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chesterbrook, PA (US)

    ProsThere were some very good individuals in parts of the organization. Casual environment for a good amount of the time working there and a good location.

    ConsUnfortunately those good individuals were surrounded by too many ineffectual managers with no clear direction or plan. Senior management brought in hand-picked people that did not know the business or were particularly good at there jobs. That caused a lot of clash with existing employees when it was clear there was no accountability at higher levels of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTruly self-assess the capabilities of the senior management and what they are contributing to the organization. Realize that just because the perspective is new doesn't mean it is right.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good until the new CEO arrived. Run away!

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Wayne, PA (US)

    ProsGood group of professionals and friends.

    ConsThe executive leadership does not care about the product. The strategies to sell the product are not honest; the company lost all the clients except the parent company.
    The products have so much technical/architectural debt that adding/changing one small feature could take a couple of releases and re-design efforts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with your employees and customers

    One direction down

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFour years ago there was great growth potential for this company. It was a casual work environment with potential to deliver a much needed product.

    ConsI have never seen a company where middle-management does not hold any kind of team meetings. There is no cohesion between the departments. Absolute lack of direction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive clear direction for where the company is headed Treat everyone as though their job adds value to the company's bottom-line. Respect one another.
