    I worked at MEDecision full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, and great marketing.

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours, no work/life balance. Everything seems to be a challenge to get done since they let go a third of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just talk the talk, walk the walk. Trying so hard to be employee friendly and change the culture, but it's not working.

    Former Employee - Senior Automation Architect in Wayne, PA (US)

    I worked at MEDecision as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    None. Company does not have leadership that is techn ical but leadership is given to people of only one country of origin (namely Israel); so, in a way, if you follow him or bear with him, then you can continue ad infinitum. But only till then. And, that is a very difficult task.

    Cons

    It has people who are furniture mover but close to CEO because of they are from same ethnicity (Israel) masquarading as Top Architects or Sr Implementation Managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pampering any one just because they belonged to Israel.
    Stop conduct which if Government knows about it will be classified as criminal.

    I have been working at MEDecision full-time

    Pros

    Interesting 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.

    Cons

    Inability 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.

    I have been working at MEDecision full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is great.

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Too many bosses and not enough producers.

    I worked at MEDecision full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    IF 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There 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

    I worked at MEDecision

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Go 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.

    I worked at MEDecision full-time

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    Unfortunately 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 ManagementAdvice

    Truly 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.
