    Flexible. Good work/life balance, but lacks opportunity for growth. Most employees are educators, not business savvy.

    I worked at HIMSS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Certain departments are better than others. Mine was particularly good so I enjoyed my co-workers. The company offers quite a bit of flexibility.

    Cons

    Those in upper management are often not qualified to be in those roles. They have a place and can add value, but not as VPs, SVPs or senior directors of key business units. Furthermore, most of the upper management grew up in HIMSS. Meaning they don't have experience to pull from and they don't recognize smart business practices. In fact, most of them have an educational background, but are tasked to run business units. They are under qualified to do so. This causes quite a bit of tension among staff members that are more business savvy. If you want to continue moving your career forward, and work with others that have a passion to learn and grow, I would not recommend working at HIMSS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the legacy employees and bring in new talent that can act as change agents. Since the association is an advocate for transforming health IT...you should recruit the right leadership team to do so.

    paranoid, incapable boss, used employee review process to spew negativity and falsehoods.
