I worked at athenahealth full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Growing company
Aggressive and exciting vision for the future of healthcare

Cons

Top level reviews do not equal job progression or job security.
A culture with grandiose visions but lack of cross functional talent to implement visions. Company has evolved into a classic silo model.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead from the front with solid, functional communication down the line. With the silo structure that is in place, if managers do not communicate then the vision is lost. What is promoted at company meetings does not equate to daily functions.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    athenahealth has Flexible work hours, including the ability to work from home. Collegiate atmosphere. Social hours include company provided drinks. Pleasant physical surroundings, great place for liberals.

    Cons

    Very inconsistent enforcement of policies, what you know is less important than who you know. It is very much a fit in or get out kind of company. Outsiders are not welcome. Jobs are routinely being shifted abroad, leading to poor morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be a good idea to pay more attention to how you onboard people with experience from other companies.
