    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, great co-workers, interesting work in a variety of places, lots of travel.

    Cons

    Not a very good work/life balance in this position. Also very little opportunity for advancement and some blatant favoritism on the part of managers. Upper management is deaf and overall reactive instead of proactive. People were laid off unexpectedly with no consideration of performance, leaving behind the less competent.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention! You had good people but in the interest of making your bottom line look good, you got rid of the wheat and kept the chaff.

    Pros

    Depending on your team and your manager being in current political favor, you can have a decent team morale and experience. This is a good place for new college grads needing some experience and those planning on making it their final career stop. Flexibility in schedule if not directly client facing; Some true leaders remain, but are in middle-management so unfortunately things will not be trending positive for Allscripts in the near future.

    Cons

    See middle-management comment above. Also, while cuts were financially necessary it really is a shame that many quality employees were let go while less than stellar employees remain. High school at its finest. Glad to not have to go into the office everyday.

    Advice to Management

    The internal employee survey from a couple years ago was clearly a cruel joke. Also, it is expected new management will bring in former peers, but maybe in the future take the time to educate them on the business sector. It's also helpful to acknowledge their ongoing staff attrition rates - usually signals poor leadership when it becomes a common trend.

    Pros

    Liked flexibility of working remote, like management and client groups supported. Some excellent talent on the team and across the business

    Cons

    Top down management style, too much bureaucracy, individual innovation discouraged and lack of open 360 dialogue at all corporate levels

    Advice to Management

    Change cultural style to be more open and collaborative to reduce amount of voluntary turnover. Be more generous with compensation

    Pros

    Allscripts is a progressive company working hard to make a positive impact and turn over a few bucks.

    Cons

    In the effort, the people involved in the day-to-day operation appear to be of little interest to the executives who are traveling all over the country (sometimes in private jets) trying to please clients and stir up business. The culture of the operation is one of "us and them."

    Advice to Management

    If you find no value in your employees and make no effort to reward hard work, you'll get little from those in your employ.
