Use it for 2 years professional experience and then get out.

This is a great place if you have family and want to spend more time with them, or if you have ZERO ambition in life. Meditech only promotes from within, which means you have people with no management skills as leaders; they just outlasted everyone who quit around them, and still adhere to the same outdated policies. The pay is way below the industry standard, and they have no plans to make it better. They will lose tenured, talented staff who have been in the company for years, because they won't give a modest $6,000 raise that even with it, would keep the person's salary under the industry standard. The company uses the same methods and policies from 30 years ago. After 2 years of working there, you will reach a plateau in your career and your job growth will come to a halt. You might become a supervisor after 2 years that has no autonomy or decision making power, after 10 you might become a manager, and 20 a director.
Get what you can out of the company and then move on after a year to two. Anything beyond that is going to work against you and be a waste of your time, and you will miss out on opportunities that really could develop your career. I don't know why any programmer would spend more than a year at the company. If you have any skills that can be applied to other industries, RUN!
The company is also a sinking ship at the moment and doing horribly compared to its competitors. I'm willing to venture a guess that it's because Meditech has no interest in retaining talent.
Health Insurance is great, reduced lunches
No Human Resources, Middle Management is absolutely clueless on how to be effective leaders or motivate staff, zero imagination or innovation
