    Pros

    Yearly bonus, above average salary increases every year, no one gets laid off... ever

    Cons

    Not an agile, cutting edge company. It's a conservative company at heart that has steadily been growing for many years. It doesn't take many risks, and neither do the employees take many risks in their work.

    Pros

    Job security. The company has never had a layoff. It recently dissolved a whole department but found places within the organization for everyone.
    Culture is generally friendly and accommodating.
    Seldom required to work after hours.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    Boastful of benefits package, but it's comparable to, or worse than, most tech jobs.
    Poor training.
    While the culture is friendly and forgiving, it tends to breed mediocrity in staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training, provide clearer avenues of advancement, pay your employees more, and understand the kinds of cultures and benefits that make up a tech company in the 21st century.

    Pros

    Free soda, cheap (and good) food, outside of Boston (cheaper cost of living, but still high), good health benefits

    Cons

    Low salary, obsolete programing language, unsympathetic management. You get the feeling of being in a dead end; the company doesn't give you enough experience to branch out (especially since you're programming in a language that NO ONE else uses), so you have to move up inside the company to improve your life. But... why would you want to? A 5k better salary STILL sucks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work it into your budget to pay your employees better. Employees with families stick around for the long haul, but how to you expect someone to raise a family near Boston for 40k a year?

    Pros

    Medical software is always needed. Despite the size coworkers are like family. There are opportunities for advancement. Financially conservative company.

    Cons

    The company treats employees like commodities.

    I worked at Meditech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cares about employees. Great benefits. Majority of staff very friendly and willing to help other staff members. Reduced cost for food. Family oriented Very stable and reliable product with very large and loyal user base. Company very stable. Upper management very approachable and caring attitude.

    Cons

    Management positions filled only from inside promotions with minimal outside influence. Some managers very difficult to work under, not open to new ideas, and do not know how to manage.. No privacy at workstations. No HR department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire some outside professionals into management positions. Create HR department so employees have somewhere to go for help.

    Pros

    Found a better job fast.

    Cons

    Had to work at this comical company for 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop saying things like you foster creativity when you stifle it in reality. This was more like a summer camp for kids than a company,

    I worked at Meditech full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Okay pay & benefits
    Traveling between buildings do break up your day a bit.

    Cons

    Depending on which Applications you're in, your individual workload can be that of 3-4 persons; and you have no say in whether or not you're the unlucky one.
    Over-worked, over-stressed and 'gossip' like you've never experienced before is the order of the day here.
    Vacations and not true vacations because not only do you have to find people to cover all your sites while on vacation, but you also have know that during vacation your work is being stored up until you get back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use commonsense in your organization and re-organizations.
