    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, not worth it. They are well aware of the competitive environment they have created, more employees just need to wake up.

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Laid back environment, new issues every day, not the same thing daily. Money is decent, Work from home occasionally, minimal travel. Office Events.

    Cons

    Biggest issue this company has is cross department communication, especially with new products. New software is developed, rolled out, documented poorly, hard to install, and then dumped into support. They struggle, look for documentation/help and it's a scavenger hunt to find the people/information. There are so many add-on products that it is hard to be an expert on everything.

    Also a majority of the managers are new blood. They didn't start at the bottom, they don't understand the product, they don't always make the best decisions. Also a lot of the little benefits that made Allscripts stand out around surrounding companies have been taken away to save money. Top performers don't get rewarded like they use to. Stock gifts were quite common 5 years ago. Techs who carry pager now no longer get paid for working after hours. Support techs are also now stuck in a primary system where they are in charge of 7-10 clients. They all have weekly meetings for an hour with each client. Add in prep time for the calls they spend 2 days of the week talking to clients on about what needs to be done, and 3 days trying to actually do work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New software being developed should receive input from both upgrades/support during the process. This way any easy adjustments can be made to benefit all departments. For the first few months it should be supported initially by the developers who wrote it. There should be a bigger transition period to support. Documentation for support can and should be written by support while in this transition period so that they can have access with the developers to ask the right questions. Top performers should be rewarded better. Managers should have to go through the same product training that everyone else does. They should also have to work cases for a while, and perform software installs/upgrades to understand the big picture. Having a manager say on a client conference call "I'm just a manager and don't know the product that well." is real reassuring for clients:)
