Thought this was my dream job....
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Westwood, MAAugust 7, 2018
This company has a very narrow outlook on how a company should be run. In fact, from my experience they know little on how to manage employees. I was treated in such a way that I was always unsure of myself, my position, and my future with the company. They definitely play favorites and if you have an opinion, you might as well move on.
Pros
Nice people worked in OBS. Nice buildings
Cons
Micro manage, negligence, unappreciative of staff

Not a great place to work
Senior Specialist (Former Employee) –  Canton, MAJuly 22, 2018
Once upon a time, they were a good company to work for even if the starting pay was lower than other companies. They plied you with promises of amazing yearly bonuses, flexibility, work/life balance and 5 cent sodas.

Fast forward to today. The bonuses are 1/3 of what they used to be. There is no 401k, only profit sharing (what they put in for each employee each year has gone down significantly over the last few years. One employee who had been there over 10 years barely had $20k in her profit sharing! No one could retire on that). Stock options haven't been offered in 5 years or more. The flexibility they used to offer (for example part time employment) was being taken away. They were forcing people back to full time by taking away benefits and making them pay more for health insurance. They refuse to let go of people who are not pulling their weight, instead keeping them on for years doing sub-par work. I saw people who watched youtube all day, online shopped or played on their phones instead of actually working. The raises are minuscule and often times non-existent with excuses as to why (salary caps that are touted but no one truly knows what they are set at). Funny that they gave tiny raises or none at all in 2016, yet the upper management gave themselves $120,000 raises. Must be nice. Way to put yourselves first, and not compensate the workers who are actually doing all the work.They continue to lose the best workers due to not appreciating them or compensating them appropriately therefore, the good employees leave. What is left are the bad employees or the ones who
  more... are "stuck" there due to family obligation or because the only products they know are Meditech ones which does not help you out in the field. Work/life balance is a joke. They used to be flexible, but that changed a few years back as well. They are rigid, uncompromising and poorly managed. It is a sinking ship. They have lost so many customers to Epic and Cerner, but try to tell their employees that everything is ok, when it obviously is not. Too much middle management that has NO IDEA what they are doing (due to the "only promote from within" mentality). They are not good at their jobs, it kills morale and causes a lot of issues. Speaking of promotions, IF you get one, don't expect a raise with it. Nope, you get more responsibility and potentially lose a telecommute day (if becoming a supervisor) but no increase in salary. You read that right, promotions without salary increases. Employees are overworked, under compensated and stressed to the max. They have barely hired enough new workers to make up for all the people who have left over the last few years. They just expect the existing workers to add it all onto their already full plates. Sinking ship indeed. Get another job before it is too late.  less

MEDITECH job summary
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Westwood, MAJuly 16, 2018
Heavy travel schedule. Typical day is customer service calls and remote meetings. They promote from within, sometimes promotions seem to be based on tenure rather than ability to perform the job.
Pros
Healthcare coverage

Good job, Bad experiences
Application Specialist (Former Employee) –  Canton, MAJune 18, 2018
It is a good job. I just had a bad experience with being in school full time and working. The job pays well and is very helpful, however my boss dropped the "you need to figure out what is more important, your education or your career," over a phone call review in reference to me having to show up and leave early 3 days a week. (as previously discussed in my hiring interviews). So I chose my education.

Focus on your goals here and you'll be fine
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 7, 2018
MEDITECH is whatever you choose to make it. It can either be a final stop and a lifelong experience, or just a quick stop before you switch careers. The company itself is alright, and the people are friendly so that's not the issue. The issue is that if you choose to stay make sure that you have your goals in order, because things may not end up the way you want them to. The pacing here can be slow, and time will disappear from you quickly. Make sure that you have that plan, always.
Pros
Job Security, Excellent Health Benefits, Location in the city, Flexible Hours
Cons
Little room for advancement, Very Little Social Interaction, Compensation is low relative to more competitive companies.

Great company
Lead Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 29, 2018
Days are pretty simple: come in, figure out what you want to work on, then work on it. They use the Agile process so you've got the typical Agile procedures. Management and coworkers are great, friendly, and encouraging.
Pros
Free popcorn, free drinks, small gym, healthcare, dental, annual picnic

Horrible experience
Clinical Client Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Westwood, MAApril 23, 2018
Although MEDITECH was a pioneer in the Electronic Health Record industry they are outdated with limited enhancements to their 40+ year company. They are riding the coat tails of a previously secure and steady reputation but are declining rapidly due to insufficient enhancements on product software and a broken internal structure. The training involved to on board in certain applications is an over load of random disjointed information as well as inconsistency in company culture and management structure. Some are on facebook all day with no backlash from their management team while others are subjected to scrutiny, an inbox of work that is unmanageable, questions from customers that are impossible to answer and information that was not documented properly that is cast upon newer hires try to figure out 40 years of scrambled information. Miserable work experience with no HR department and clueless management who are only riding out what was once a stable company with no help to new employees. Other EHR companies have started to surpass them in sales and usability and the company is struggling to maintain what was once a shiny image that is now on the decline. If you are hired into this company it is luck of the draw who your management team is and what application you get placed in. Prepare to take upwards of 50+ 2 hour classes on different areas of the application that you may never even use once you are supporting sites. I highly suggest not falling for the once positive image of this company, this place is now a revolving door. You will learn things you will have no  more... idea to apply in your day to day work. If you are unlucky enough to have a manager who is trying to advance and puts on the show for their upper management, prepare to fail as I can guarantee you will not survive here long.  less

A good start no Future
Marketing Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Canton, MAApril 22, 2018
Good place to start a career or a transition into a new career path but do not expect to work hard and that work to be recognized. Learn what you can stay quiet and you will be fine

Ideal place to start a career. Do not stay more than two years. A chance to wear many hats and learn in the business world before you leave for adequate pay.

Lack of Training
Financial Client Training Specialist (Former Employee) –  Canton, MAMarch 19, 2018
I was so excited to work at Meditech. Interview process was difficult but I got the job. Its a very young company and where I am more mature it was hard to settle in to the studying that was required. It was very hard to learn the system and they training was terrible.
Pros
Free Coffee, Nice Cafeteria, Great Health Benefits
Cons
Vacation Time, Long Work Days, Lack of Training

Supervisor/Analyst/Trainer (Former Employee) –  Westwood, MAFebruary 27, 2018
Great place to get your foot in the door in relation to healthcare. Salary/bonus structure is probably less then other places, but you do learn a lot and make a lot of connections.

Career Ender for Programmers
Programmer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 5, 2018
Other than using a proprietary programming language which looks and feels like it was made in the 1960s (it was), my biggest gripe with MEDITECH is their retirement structure. Basically, over half of your retirement account's value is in MEDITECH's private stock, so if the company ever goes belly up, not only do you lose your job, your ability to work anywhere else (proprietary language experience), but you lose your retirement too.

Great place to work for a year or two, but don't try and make a career out of it.
