Toxic culture constant churn
Product Marketing Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 15, 2018
I would not recommend working at Medidata Solutions to my worst enemy. Toxic, optics only culture, especially in some groups such as Marketing. If you do not form a tight alliance with the company President, you will be eliminated within 1-2 years regardless of level.
Pros
salaries often higher than market rate
Cons
everything else

Good workplace culture but career advancement uncertain
Analyst, Proposals and Contracts (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 15, 2018
Good team environment. Management not very visible but does not micromanage. Career advancement is uncertain. Hours can be a little flexible and can work from home at times.

Pretty good environment to work
Senior IT Quality Administrator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 6, 2018
I wish they would make it easier with the education of employees that need it to advance in their career there. More collaboration between teams for better understanding for those that may not be as technical.
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
education of their employees would be beneficial

Good company, may have lost some of it's vision
Director of Client Services (Former Employee) –  Edison, NJSeptember 7, 2017
I was part of the Professional Services group. It was a client facing role and representing Medidata to my clients was both extremely fulfilling and stressful. The core product, Rave works very well, but there is a significant technical debt that needs to be addressed.

Other Medidata products are not as well developed nor technically supported as Rave. That is the cause of most of the client facing stress that PS and Customer Care (Helpdesk) faced. My opinion is that Medidata should focus on resolving this, it will become a large problem in the future if it's not addressed

GREATLY depends on team. Night and day
Jr. SDET (Former Employee) –  SoHo, NYJune 4, 2017
If you're on specific teams, say RIP to your social life and hobbies, and get worked dry.

Management is very "use everything they can dirty-handedly" to try and undersell you or PIP you out over oversight disagreements. Didn't happen to me, so not personally upset over that.

Attracts very smart people, and your coworkers will be a joy to converse and play with.

Overnegotiate your salary, and if you get offered X, try more than just X+10K as a counteroffer...
Pros
Sometimes free food
Cons
Overworked and underpaid :(

Excellent Team
Operations Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  Iselin, NJJune 4, 2017
The UA-Customer Care Team is really nice and flexible. It is just hard to move up to a better position and hard to get a decent raise. You learn the basics and the team is open to helping at all times.
Pros
Flexible and free food every now and then
Cons
Little to no work compensation or promotion opportunities

Smart, friendly people working their butts off to do good for the world.
Senior Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 9, 2017
What a brilliant bunch of guys with a dedication and work ethic that is humbling. The Product R&D team I was on is terrific and our manager and product manager were great too.
They are very liberal about PTO and flexibility for working from home is very nice.
Work hard, party hard.
Senior management is a little distant and disconnected and sometimes they make promises the team can't deliver on without prior consultation. Other product groups may not be as wickedly great.
The work they do is sooooo beneficial, taking clinical trial management into the 21st century to bring safer drugs to market faster and safer.
You tell folks you work for Medidata Solutions their ears perk right up. Lots of respect.
Pros
Liberal PTO, flexible work from home, great people, worthy product, high pressure
Cons
Management, Compensation, Long Hours, High Pressure

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 8, 2017
A great place to contribute your skills and experiences, as well grow and be positively challenged. A great place to engage yourself as an expert and leader. Collaboration with team members and other teams is encouraged, and failures are understand as stepping-stones to success. The president and CEO are friendly, thoughtful, transparent, and engaging.

A Medium Sized Company on the Verge of Becoming a Large Company
PRODUCT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 22, 2015
Currently Medidata is a medium sized company that is verging on becoming large. It feels like managment outnumbers those that have to get the work done and politics is becoming more important than fabulous products.
It's sad to see because you know the culture is just deteriorating and will be to the likes of Oracle and SAS other big software companies that don't care about the most important resources, the staff.

Helpdesk Level 1 (Current Employee) –  Edison, NJAugust 17, 2015
Medidata Solutions is a wonderful place to work. Your fellow employees are kind and very helpful. The most enjoyable part of this job is actually my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is sitting on a chair, looking at a computer a screen for 7 hours or more. You get to learn alot, but after awhile it may become more repetition than anything else.
Pros
Work from Home, Helpful environment
Cons
Long hours sitting in front of computer screen
