Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- It's a good way to break into the healthcare IT industry since they will hire anyone with a pulse. - Good PTO and benefits. - Some flexibility for working remotely depending on your department/manager.

Cons

- Clients HATE you from the start no matter how competent you might personally be, because they are so used to receiving awful service from Allscripts. - It can be difficult, if not impossible, to find the information you need to do your job. Clients also complain about the difficulty of locating information. Sometimes you get the impression that development is a sort of "man behind the emerald curtain." - Cronyism is king. A lot of the managers are surprisingly unprofessional in behavior and appearance. - The pay is a joke. Really talented professionals earn salaries on par with day laborers. - The CEO's primary interest is lining his pockets and he doesn't mind destroying the company in the process. - Have fun trying to work with your "colleagues" off-shore. The only training that Allscripts apparently provides to off shore resources is how to refuse responsibility for any work that isn't exactly spelled out in a document somewhere. To be fair, it may be not so much that they are lazy as that they don't understand English well enough to translate requests that are not scripted.

Advice to Management

What's the point? Management is making big money in the short term and will have retired to their yachts and villas by the time the Allscripts house of cards comes tumbling down. They aren't interested in making Allscripts a better place to work - they can undoubtedly buy all the good press they think they need.

    Pros

    Money is Good. Opportunity for Product Portfolio to Get Better with Allscripts Ownership. Product Development has Great Vision, but Poor Execution on Vision/

    Cons

    Product Development and Sales Very Poorly Connected which Makes it Difficult for Field Staff to Deliver on Promises for Clients. Too Much Volatility in Management.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs better follow-thru. Better transparency for clients as to what is being planned for future releases. Client promises need to be delivered on.

    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.
