    I have been working at Allscripts

    Pros

    Great work life balance, awesome benefits, good pay, awesome people to work with.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, lack of approved training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management does a good job with what they are given. Sometimes politics gets in the way but that is part of every job.

    I have been working at Allscripts as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Health IT is constantly changing so the challenges never end--nothing monotonous about the work. Many of my colleagues are off-shore and I enjoy the cross-cultural dialogue.

    Cons

    Because the context of Health IT is constantly changing, there is a constant need to catch up to what is going on. This can lead to confusion about who is doing what. With a large company, such communication can be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As always, communicate with everyone at all levels to get a better understanding of the actual employee culture.

    I worked at Allscripts full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    People are great there. Flexibility. Ability to work from home some days not all. Great health insurance

    Cons

    Learn on your own. Management does not care about workload. Knowledge base is bad. Promotions based off how long you worked there not skill level. To many managers that do not know the product. Takes one year to go from contract to full time 90% of time. Lots of India hiring shifting more to moving jobs there. 3 lay offs in the one year I was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More support for your support. Acknowledge good work more.

    Pros

    Good US staff. Although they are slowly being laid off

    Cons

    India is the goal. 100 percent India. They just can't get the crosstraining done as fast as they want. But thats the ultimate goal. So the Con is byebye US jobs.

    Buddy system in full affect. It's ran like the mafia with one main person at the head like the godfather of allscripts. He has manager pawns that work under him that do his bidding.

    Very low pay. Especially for staff who worked at allscripts versus the people who previously worked at misys.

    They lay/off fire based on buddy system. Irregardless of a person's great performance reviews. Everybody working there is scared they will lose their jobs any minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You enjoy orchestrating off-shoring everybody else s jobs. Now it's your time to go. What you don't get is once all of the US jobs are gone then you will no longer have anybody to manage. Indian will manage their own. And that will be the end of Allscripts. You know the clients are leaving in droves due to india support. Everybody knows it. As shown by the record losses. This will be the final nail. in the coffin of the company.

    Pros

    Small Team so can get experience on trying lots of hands on stuff. Great Team and Great Managers. All very helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    Less opportunities to grow. Also being on client site, not very connected to AllScripts growth opportunities. Job is very operational instead of strategic or management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more exposure to AllScripts wide company so that can find more opportunities to grow.
