I have been working at athenahealth full-time for more than a year

Pros

-company culture is relaxed.
-salary is good but the benefits aren't that great

Cons

-no growth potential, most people are seen switching between different positions in different departments yearning for more development, but most times unsuccessful
-there is a cookie-cutter mold of people they want in specific positions, many skillsets are underused-new talent is ignored.
-very, very poor management-just watched a girl get fired with little warning and with complete disregard for the HR policies they boast about (action plans). There was a made-up reason about under performance-this brought down department morale and makes me scared for my own position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Making significant decisions without consent of other managers and poor middle management will be the downfall of the company.

    I have been working at athenahealth full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is fair but more importantly the attitude, culture and environment can't be beat. It's the perfect place for a high performer that doesn't need or want to be micro-managed. There is an abundance of knowledge that is shared and ideas are heard and welcomed from the bottom up. It's competitive but not cut-throat.

    Cons

    With this type of culture and environment the expectations are high. If you have the right attitude and are a self motivated, driven and high performing individual this is a Pro not a con and it's the place for you.

    I have been working at athenahealth full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working from home is a huge bonus

    Cons

    College environment. Work /life balance is always a struggle. The company does seem to favor those with families.
