    EHRs are a bit of a saturated market and innovating in this market proves difficult for larger clients.

    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.

    Notify team members of new positions and interview for the positions.
