    Pros

    With leadership changes and consistent reorganizations, the only pros were coworkers and the ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Incompetent leaders
    Lots of subpar contractors
    Outraged clients
    Massive layoffs

    Advice to Management

    With leadership changes and consistent reorganizations, the only pros were coworkers and the ability to work from home. The direction the company moved in after Mr. Black took over as the CEO has completely ruined Allscripts, and the mass exodus of clients has not changed the direction of Mr. Black's sinking ship. The board needs to look in a different direction and get an executive level broom, as the last change at the top and the introduction of his cronies has been detrimental to the company, the employees, and the clients.

    Pros

    Based on my experiences, there really aren't any Pros to list.

    Cons

    I worked here for 2 days and quite. It was such an unprofessional environment. On my first day, my "manager" told me there was a bet placed on my success and I needed to be a "rockstar" so he could win. Also, after 8+ years in finance and accounting, I was brought in with the interns and completed degraded. I was told several things in my offer, but on my first day, all of that was revoked. Also no one spoke to me for over 6 hours on day one, and the same on day 2. Management was no where to be found, no welcome lunch etc.
    Terrible pay and no flexibility

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your Sr. Staff like interns!

    Pros

    I work with a group that got acquired by Allscripts. Our group is amazing to work with and my salary is very competitive, better than anything I looked at.

    Cons

    Executives cant get out of their own way. They continue to reorganize and instead of taking what's good about the Software teams that work and implemented it company wide, they come up with their own weird structures that fail constantly. Our support system is one of the worst in the business.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with what works. Stop trying to change just to change. What works for transaction systems does not work for Financial systems.

    Pros

    Occasionally work from home or remote is a benifit, but even that is being taken away with this new management team.

    Cons

    Software is very buggy, and new releases are appearing monthly with the same bugs. Management cannot control the downward spiral which is building with its clients, who are all complaining or suing. Managements recent response it to pressure support with job loss and layoffs and to add more internal monitoring software and reviewing case notes. Not a pleasurable environment to work, too much pressure, and no compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Get new managers from within the organization who know what the issues are and have been in the trenches. The current support upper management are playing with numbers and not doing anything for their employees or clients. Learn to compensate their employees to ensure they are dedicated to the effort not play big brother and chastise them. I would add some adiquate training for these new releases would be a benifit as well. At this point it is all "Islands of Information", and a very poor support model.

    Pros

    Love the team I work on
    The manager I directly report to is open, honest, and a joy to work for
    Friendly employees/teammates
    Good pay with raises most every year
    Good work/life balance (but this varies greatly by team)

    Cons

    No transparency
    No opportunity for bonuses unless you're in Sales
    Upper management/executive team do not seem to value employees all that much
    Recent lay-offs
    Aside from decent medical and retirement benefits, there are no benefits that really "wow"
    Touts a healthy lifestyle but does little to help employees achieve this

    Advice to Management

    It's the little things that show your employees that you care. While I think the manager and director that I report directly to do a good job of making their team members feel like they matter, upper management and executives have done very little to show employees at this company that they are valued.
