    Pros

    Overall this is a nice office to work in. It is a very easy going crowd of people and management is not completely distanced from the workers they manage.

    1. Good Benefits for individuals and families.
    2. Relaxed working environment with casual business attire.
    3. Options to work remotely are available.
    4. Yearly salary increases for good work.

    Cons

    While in the Burlington office things are fairly easy going direction from upper management from the main offices conflict with career growth, job focus and just over all work/life balance. Over the past few years there is a decreasing pool of talent and lack of bodies to replace them. This has increased workloads and decreased resolution times on projects.

    1. Increases in moving jobs outside of the country.
    2. Non-existent guidance from HR for career growth.
    3. Work Life Balance has changed to encourage/require more overtime for little to no compensation.

    Advice to Management

    1. Need to increase/balance workforce for critical projects.
    2. Need clear achievable career paths for those that wish to move up.
    3. More available education to further skills and help with career advancement made available to ALL.


  3. Good experience, lacks leadership

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn in a short period of time. But, there is a lot of personal growth, opportunity to travel, and learn a lot about healthcare and technology. It is an extremely diverse company. No micro-management.

    Health benefits are very good, PTO is decent, no sick time offered, only a limited PTO bank. Business causal dress code.

    Cons

    There is a sever lack in leadership. My bosses are very nice people, but they do not believe in discipline. On a team of six the group will often times leave the vast majority of work to one person, and management often ignores the pleas of that lone person.

    The only development that happens is the development the individual seeks out himself or herself, as there is very little development from a management, or developmental direction provided from management.

    Employees do not know how to function as a team, and often time feel entitled. The office works in clicks, which often times leads to resentment. Employees often times display unprofessional behavior and management stands by because they are afraid of drawing a complaint from HR. Some employees are toxic to necessary team building.

    No bonus structure, very small pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better compensation packages, do a better job at developing employees, and work to eliminate the negative employees.

    Pros

    The people at Allscripts are great. They are passionate and fun to work with.

    Cons

    I don't think the company has ever really recovered from all the mergers over the past 6-7 years. There are too many cultures battling it out, and the senior leadership does not really seem keen to get that resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees and your customers.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, working remote is good and bad as it means never having time off

    Cons

    no opportunity to advance even if that was what you were hired to do the first year and after 2 1/2 years and 3 managers it still has not happened.

    Advice to Management

    The HR and Management structure doesn't lend to true growth within the company. You need to have better structure in place and path that leads to advancement, because there currently seems to be one that is clear and defined.

    Pros

    Good benefits average pay. Depending on your function you may be able to work from home - I was full time remote since jan 2012 but it's very mgr specific. If you have a healthcare background, and already have the domain experience, it's great. If you are new to healthcare IT then you will struggle.

    Cons

    No real path for promotions as a BA, outside of moving to a completely different role. Constant reorgs are the standard. Very long hours and very little work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Please communicate more with employees regarding what's happening outside of our individual scrims. Make promotions more clear as to how we can actually get one.
