    I have been working at Orion Health as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest Pro for me while at Orion has been my enjoyment in the task. I have been working on very difficult projects while at Orion Health but I can say that I have had enjoyment in all my tasks. This enjoyment comes from the positive outlook I received from internal colleagues and a clear understanding of Orion Health's vision. I have received insights into Orion's vision by an approachable and consultative Executive Leadership team. No where else in my career have I been able to have such a clear understanding on how my day to day work is affecting positively the growth of an organization in line with Executive Leadership's vision. I have also enjoyed working within Orion Health Global environment. Executive leadership is willing to bridge the gap of geography to create personal relationships which has been very motivational for me.

    Cons

    Being a Global company in the dynamic changing health-care industry please consider that you will need to roll your selves up to be successful at Orion Health. Many positions demand employees to wear multiple hats. I have found this rewarding as I get exposure to different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Please come up with a business reason to fly me to New Zealand .... I would love to see the Head Quarters!

    I have been working at Orion Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They are is such dis array that there is no real accountability. it is hard to be fingered for a major lapse, so you will not likely be let go for cause.

    Cons

    If you are really good, you are not recognized for it because they have no systems to identify who is performing and who is not.

    Advice to Management

    Make up you mind!!! You guys keep going out and getting contracts for things because the "customer wanted it". It might be nice to actually have some products that you can sell based on the actual product performance? Get out of the vaporware business!

    I have been working at Orion Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, opportunities for growth and to marry creative with intellectual. Challenges abound for those willing to take the bull by the horns

    Cons

    Growing pains of a company expanding very quickly. Trying to keep the quality found within a close-knit group of smart people and replicate that with rapid growth creates communication hurdles that cause trickle down effects. But with all issues you can either complain about it or do something to try and fix it. (See Pro about challenges!)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff.... sometimes the 'in the trenches' feedback should be paramount in deciding how to approach issues.

    Has poor leadership, and is simply overwhelmed with all the contracts they have won.

    I worked at Orion Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits (100% paid health care premiums).

    Cons

    Top leadership has constant turnover, and it is a sales driven leadership. All they care about is revenues, and do not care much for their employees. This is a New Zealand company that is focused on promoting New Zealanders and New Zealand culture.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people that you have, and invest in systems and tools that are actual enterprise level tools rather than using tools like Woki and SugarCRM. This company has no forward thinking management, and has cowboy executives.

    Pros

    See another world's culture at work.

    Cons

    There is no quality control in this place of work and everyone expects a hack to fix problems. People who realize this avoid this kind of work like the plague and shove it onto someone else who doesn't know that poorly built products are being released regularly. One of the most political workplaces with backstabbing everywhere. Does not pay a salary/benefits representative of the market.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some technical people who know what they are doing and control the workplace deviance. Reward those who are efficient and competent. Take them out of the grind of working with other employess who are jealous of their abilities.
