Allscripts "Awful Place to Work"!

Pros

Vacation perks were great, and was encouraged to take time off.
Co-workers, were awesome, met & made some life long friendships.
Opportunity is there to learn and grow.

Cons

Although, encouraged to take time off, workload was doubled and never had the opportunity to go on vacation to feel as though my clients were being taken care and serviced as Management did not provide back-up or have someone with same skills to ensure work was being handled while away. Needless to say, I rarely took a day off as I would have been scolded for not meeting certain demands while on vacay.

While there is plenty of opportunity to grow, if you do not fit into the political agenda - your chances of moving up based upon your skillset is 0 to none. You definitely have to be in the "correct political group"! Very cliquish!

They have the tendency to give you more with a different title without the pay increase. Very deceitful, and this has happened to more than one person at Allscripts, it's the culture. They really treat the employees as 2nd class citizens, very sad stuff as there are a lot of talented people within the company (not referring to Senior Mgmt.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should take into account the skills and talent they have and not treat people as just another number. The company would thrive and grow even more when people are allowed the opportunity to be innovative and not treated as just a number.

    Pros

    Improving healthcare thru technology is not just a wonderful business opportunity, but allows Allscripts employees a chance to feel like they are part of the solution.

    Cons

    In a company of 5,500 employees, some are bound to be overlooked. Unfortunately, most have been overlooked for a while and it is starting to show. Management has plans to turn things around. If they follow thru and get feedback along the way, Allscripts could get back on course to satisfying their employees' needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your actions and decisions emulate your promises to employees. Investigate all employee types and their needs. Telling the "worker bees" that they're what keeps the company moving forward, then taking away bonuses gives the wrong impression to those staff. So does revoking gym membership discounts for smoking cessation assistance to non-smokers.
