Lack of strategic vision

Current Employee - Product Designer in Malvern, PA
Current Employee - Product Designer in Malvern, PA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good individual employees who want to get the job done to the best of their ability.

Cons

From the executive level, pre Allscripts buying Eclipsys, there is a lack of vision concerning how to put together the various pieces/modules together into a truly integrated EHR. Major decisions are made in response to the latest 'forest fire', with minimal thought to how present decisions impact future development.

Advice to Management

N/A, I was not given a chance to become familiar with the abilities of the Allscript leadership. However, wherever Allscripts has a person in a slot also occupied by an existing Eclipsys senior leader, they should consider replacing the Eclipsys person.

    With each merge (Misys -> Allscripts -> Eclipsys) it gets worse while the CEO gets rich

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The product team I work with is great and very talented. The benefits are above normal (23 pto days, good 401k match, etc) Free soda in SOME offices, just not mine

    Cons

    Lets be blunt, I have been w/ the company through the past 2 mergers. With each merger the moral goes down, the excitement level goes down and the will to do a 'great job' goes down. However, with each merger the CEO and his lackeys accumulate more and more wealth. If you enjoy working with off shore teams then this may be a great place for you to work. The new COO (who is trying to run a 6000 employee company like her former 100,000 employee companies) is trying get the onshore/offshore ratio to be 50/50. If you are in development you will find that more then 50% of your peers will be either in India or Ukraine. If you enjoy the fact that the company is making more money then ever yet is cutting its budgets and not allowing exiting positions to be back filled this may be a great company for you. If you enjoy the idea that each building/team has to adhere to different rules this may be the place for you. If you enjoy working on legacy software (many of the products are 15+ years old) with no ability to make any significant technology improvements this may be the place for you. If you enjoy working for a 'sales company' who just happens to make software, not a 'software company' with a sales force this may be the place for you. Working for a sales company means that if a sales person can sell the feature you MUST build it... PERIOD if you enjoy working for technology company that does not have a CIO/CTO then this may be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Before you decide to merge with the next company try fixing the company we have. Figure out what the company is trying to do. You sell the company as a 'connected community of solutions' but the vast majority of our products do not integrate or even communicate. You say that communication is the key to our success yet the only communication we get is to tell us to work harder.
