    Company taking a better direction

    Senior Implementation Consultant (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsGreat opportunities to learn the industry and be part of a big change. I like my managers and their vision as well as the company's overall mission.

    ConsEmployee tracking (hours and projects) can be counterproductive and take away from your energy and enthusiasm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow employees in certain positions to get out from the yolk of tracking every minute they spend on certain projects. Focus on outcomes and not inputs. Think of Google who allows their employees to spend at least 25% of their time on projects outside of their division.

    A decent place to work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsDespite some of the cons, allscripts still is a pretty good place to work. They really work with there employees to try to develop them. Everyone has a voice. They are family orientated and have a respectable concept of flex time. Pretty good benefits. Most every one is easy to get along with and respectable.

    ConsVery political - largely because everyone gets a voice. Rapidly changing culture. Annual reorganizations. Distant management. Sometimes the restructures mean that you "loose" a position on a product team. But.. the company does take the time to help you find another internal position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen there are changes that significantly effect peoples position, it would be nice if you had some kind of an actual plan for the employees effected by the change. Maybe I'm just too simple minded, but saying something like "oh your product is canceled, good luck searching for a new job. Hope you stay with us". Is really terrible.
