I worked at athenahealth

Pros

Gain a broad, end-to-end exposure to the software development cycle, get to work on multi-disciplinary teams, and get to take ownership of projects. You also get the opportunity to go on-site and visit customers' workplace to gain insights for your work, and you get to learn a lot about the industry.

Cons

Because the company is growing so fast, there is little training on products and you are responsible for your own knowledge transfer. There is ambiguity in the leadership so it feels like you have to satisfy a moving target. Formal feedback given through performance review system often did not match the informal feedback given through the evaluation term.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management is doing a good job adapting their management and leadership techniques to the growing company, but they should establish procedures.

    I have been working at athenahealth

    Pros

    Great sense of community, excellent career pathing and very satisfying work make for an overall great experience in the software organization. There are lots of smart people and interesting challenges to keep things exciting. Largely transparent organization. Cultural values of teaching, learning and teamwork create a good environment to make a career.

    Cons

    Work life balance is good overall but there can be some tough weeks. Developers have to work some Saturdays. While we have million dollar production hardware, developers are stuck with the same mediocre Dell laptops as everyone else. Some other parts of the company seem to have somewhat lower employee satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a really solid job overall, make sure to keep listening to employee feedback as well as you do now.
