    Database Administrator

    Database Administrator (Current Employee)

    ProsAllows working from home. Good quality co-workers. Starting pay is very good. My direct manager is the best manager I have ever had. PTO is given in one lump sum upon starting and on Jan 1 of each year and you do not have to wait for accrual to take PTO. Overall very happy with benefits.

    ConsPay raises are not all that great. Medical benefits cost has gone up. Big company but still has weird policies from the smaller company that it started out as.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStarting salary is good, wish you would have better raises for good employees.

    Embrace change and challenges

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company's mission for a connected community makes it worthwhile to to muddle through some of the red tape and challenges. If someone I love finds themselves in a hospital or Dr's office - I truly hope they have Allscripts connected to the community exchange so that the best possible decisions can be made by the HCP. Allscripts is generous with PTO, but the workload makes it difficult to actualy take any time off. I personally embrace the atmosphere of change and the challenges it brings.

    ConsThe company's 'pay for performance' review cycles need a critical eye. Regardless of the HR talking points - all employees are reviewed on a bell curve. You can exceed 100% of the goals set forth and still barely acheive a middle of the road rating. Long term employees seem to be below scale for the industry in terms of basic compensation. The perception is that in order to advance past middle management, it is far better to be hired from the outside versus being promoted from within.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLast year was tumultuous, but our direction seems to have steadied lately. Don't force our clients hands into upgrade or migration decisions. Make it compelling for them to make the choice without the carrot and stick.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThis review is for the team that I worked in.
    Management is transparent, team is friendly and helpful, employee oriented. Feedback loop is great, what you say is heard and action will be taken. Great work and life balance. Career opportunities are good.

    Consthere are no stock options it'll be nice if employees are make part of the company.
    There has being major restructuring in the company, because of good and old employees being let go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing

    Allscripts

    Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsThere is significant sales opportunity from within the client base to sell existing and new features.

    ConsThe company has client satisfaction issues related to implementation and functional issues with its partners due to its varied software client base. Too much politics and internal 'clubs' hindering success.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider the point of view and advice of your long term employees to drive change given the legacy client base it affects.

    A group of people passionate about their work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company provides good benefits and interesting projects. There is a focus on working with employee's strengths instead of trying to backfill on weaknesses.

    ConsThe company lost a lot of strong talent when they chose to offer relocation instead of the ability to work remotely. For employees who worked with multiple teams around the world, requiring a specific location didn't make sense.

    Interface Support Manager (Former Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsGreat Environment of people; pretty competent managers; and usually on the verge of new Technologies customary for the Marketplace.

    ConsBecoming a company that Outsources and cares more about the metrics than their clients and Software.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to your client's and staff, then the numbers game of metrics.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
