    I have been working at Allscripts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Despite some of the cons, allscripts still is a pretty good place to work. They really work with there employees to try to develop them. Everyone has a voice. They are family orientated and have a respectable concept of flex time. Pretty good benefits. Most every one is easy to get along with and respectable.

    Cons

    Very political - largely because everyone gets a voice. Rapidly changing culture. Annual reorganizations. Distant management. Sometimes the restructures mean that you "loose" a position on a product team. But.. the company does take the time to help you find another internal position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When there are changes that significantly effect peoples position, it would be nice if you had some kind of an actual plan for the employees effected by the change. Maybe I'm just too simple minded, but saying something like "oh your product is canceled, good luck searching for a new job. Hope you stay with us". Is really terrible.
