    You get a role, and you don't get to stray from it far. It'sa big public company, so the beurocracy is a little hard to navigate.

    I have been working at Allscripts

    Pros

    Opportunity for creativity and the chance to work with smart, hard working people. Fair salaries, reasonable benefits, challenging work environment leads to long hours but satisfaction.

    Cons

    A lot of process to get simple things done, for example the performance review process is problematic and inconsistent. Timelines for the performance review process are short and strict for lower management, yet executive management has not held themselves to their own deadlines stretching out review feedback by nearly a month so far. Poor communication from executive management on bonus payout, only after it was too late did leadership in the company learn we were off the mark and no bonus was paid. I have great respect for our leaders, however when it comes to things like personal compensation of your people, even seeming "asleep at the wheel" is not acceptable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your own personal deadlines and communicate more to your people, not the market. Your people should be your number one priority, who are then responsible for Clients as their number one priority. Face time on CNN, CBS, ABC, and any other news station is not a substitute for managing your business and keeping your deadlines. Executive leadership positions are not an opportunity to prepare for a future in politics. I don't want to work for the company that paved the way for a new Senator or any other political position.
