    I worked at Allscripts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Treated well by Allscripts employees and management despite contractor status. Allscripts often hires contractors for permanent positions. Lots of training material available.

    Cons

    While a contractor status, Allscripts can not provided extra hardware equipment such as headsets, 2nd monitor, etc. But as soon as one becomes permanent the extra hardware flows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink policy of not providing extra monitors to contractors - the extra screen makes one much more efficient.

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Life/work balance, professional environment, learning opportunities, benefits, and great management. I worked for Eclipsys back in 2008 and 2009, got laid off them and back again almost two years ago. I cannot ask for anything better than being back again. I missed these guys so much!

    Cons

    I cannot find anything to say here, at this moment. When there are some negative comments about the management team, I can say I am a very lucky guy. My Manager is awesome and I will work for him at anytime, anywhere. Dennis McIntyre, you rock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good job.

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

    Pros

    Great location and wonderful, interesting projects for a QA person.

    Cons

    A junior QA person would struggle with the complexity and demands. The offshore model needs to be updated as too much work is on the U.S. team at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to keep the seasoned talent from leaving the company - we've lost too many good people. Make bonuses a guarantee for certain positions and grades. Stop allowing people who worked at the original "ECIN" company to come and go like the company is a revolving door.

    Super management and i will only suggest 1 thing which is about the location in india.
