    Pros

    Allows 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.

    Cons

    Pay 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 ManagementAdvice

    Starting salary is good, wish you would have better raises for good employees.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Last 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.

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

    there 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing
