When I first started at the company, there was a family feeling. Everyone knew everyone else. There was an effort by management to be transparent, as the company grew out of its 8A status, the atmosphere changed. Silos grew. Changes were made and groups were moved to different physical locations with no explanation. Management made it clear in a townhall meeting that they owned the place and nepotism would continue, much to the detriment of their growing company which now requires educated and experienced professionals in place of relatives and family friends. A state of paranoia exists. Benefits are not really benefits. Everyone who goes to work here should carefully read all the small print on every page when you are hired. I am extremely disappointed.

Management hires staff but the company has little work. Company was told by their client (Center for Medicare and Medicaid) to not bid on anymore of their contracts until they corrected issues with personnel and delivering their products on time.
No work/life balance - do not apply if you you have a life outside of work
Current employee (Current Employee) – Owings Mills, Maryland – March 22, 2014
The company used to be a great place to work hard and play hard. Nowadays, there are "pockets" or groups that have managers that work their people so hard and for so many hours each week, and there is no work/life balance. None. Mgmt needs to open their eyes, and intervene, or as was suggested there will be employee burnout and turnover.
If you are looking to work long hours, have no life outside the company during the week, even work on the weekends, this place may be for you. If however you have a life, a family, a hobby, a desire to have dinner at home during the week as well as plans on the weekend, you may want to consider somewhere else. Edaptive may not be for you.
Partners are friendly and used to care.
Partners are blind to what is going on with some middle mgmt, or lack thereof.
Overworked, unreasonable expectations, no work-life balance
Business (Former Employee) – Owings Mills, MD – March 6, 2014
Edaptive Systems is a growing company that is still run like a ma and pop shop. Management does not lead, and they stretch thin the employees that work there. If you accept a position there, plan to work like a dog because they have managers there that work their people to death while neglecting processes. Turnover will be great in 2014.
Free meal once a month.
Overworked colleagues, managers lacking leadership ability, long hours w/lackluster pay.
I've worked at Edaptive for 2-and-a-half years and started as the 72nd employee at the company. There are now 230+, so the company has tripled in just that short time! If you've never been a part of a company that's winning like this, the opportunities are incredible. Add to that the fact that it's in healthcare technology, one of the hottest industries out there, and it's a career-defining move to join us.
Above all that is the guy in the corner office and the people he chooses to surround himself with. I've seen him make decisions time and again in the best interest of his employees--not his profits! He really believes in being people-centered and is disproving the theory that "nice guys finish last." Through hard work and respect for people, he's proving otherwise.
I couldn't imagine being any luckier to have found this place!
incredible leadership, flexible work schedule, above average pto plan, covered & free parking, a gym in the building, free soda & oj, metro accessible
the expectations are high, only hard workers need apply
System Administrator II (Former Employee) – York, PA – June 8, 2012
My first impression was a great place to work with company provided training to support your employment needs. But I found out that I did not fit their needs. Would recommend it to any one looking for a business analyst position or project management. But expectations are set too high, I believe.
