    Pros

    Good Benefits, Previous focus on team building was helpful to develop internal relationships

    Cons

    Very top heavy (management) They do not value their employees. During the recent layoffs, they kept several employees who are lazy and unassuming while forfeiting those who were dedicated to serving their clients.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company!

    Pros

    Good Pay,Really lovely co-workers, If you stumble upon a good manager...try and build a good relation ship with them. They will help you the best they can.

    Cons

    No visible room for growth Job description and actual job are two different things Answer to why anything and everything happening is"upper management" - which is pathetic because that is not a proper or detailed explanation. It is not transparent- it is like a secret society.

    Advice to Management

    Change comes from the top since the workers do what the management says. So, maybe you should start cleaning and changing the "upper management" instead of laying off people that just do what you say. If you are not seeing the change you want, maybe it is because the way you lead is not effective. Think about this for a sec or two.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, management is approachable, laid back atmosphere, never bored, always learning, no micromanagement.

    Cons

    Like any large-ish company, there are inefficiencies and poor communication across some departments. There needs to be more unified leadership direction from the top. Also, they really need to put a more consolidated effort and money into fixing Oracle and Hyperion. In their current state, they hamper productivity greatly. They also need to examine the pay/rewards processs within each department. Gross inequities exist in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate with the other leaders at your level and above so we have a unified course of action. Reward your high performers appropriately so you can retain top talent.

    Pros

    Great work environment and hours

    Cons

    Company has tendency to ship jobs overseas

    Advice to Management

    Have some decency to your employees who have put in many hours of dedicated hard work only to come into work and tell us that you have terminated us in favor of off-shore support then we find out the very next day you hired 15 new people at substantially lower salaries and who are much younger.

    Pros

    Meet some genuinely smart people that are willing to go out of their way to help No micromanagement, free to work around your own timings- within reason Benefits are ok and in line with expectations

    Cons

    Product faults, hotfix upon hotfix that doesn't solve the problem, just works around it Managers go MIA for weeks at a time Constant layoffs, job security is a joke

    Advice to Management

    You have got to communicate with your team and address concerns regarding job security. We are all adults and understand that this is a tough phase, but not talking about it won't do your image any favors.

    Pros

    Good (non-management) people trying to do the right things. Good talent is running away unfortunately.

    Cons

    Management has not a clue. New CEO every 2-3 years makes it had to ever implement a plan before the next CEO comes and changes course. Whatever the ultimate goal for Allscripts is, management is not sharing it with "the people". No road map, not long term strategy except - try not to lose any more customers before we transition to pop-health.

    Advice to Management

    None, you don't listen because this is your stepping stone to bigger things.
