    Quite possibly the worst organization to build a career with.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Sunquest Information Systems

    Pros

    Great for resume, decent money in sales if you hit your numbers, and good benefits

    Cons

    Leaches on their employees and their clients. Would rather grow through charging more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like they matter and aren't just pawns on a chess board. Try and get a sales leadership that has a clue and doesn't just invent more work to feel better. This organization won't dissapear ovrrnight but rather die througha thousand cuts unless Roper decides to stir the pot. I would not want my worst enemy to have to deal with this executive team and leadership team for more than a day. Innovation is a four letter word here and employees are rated/ranked based on potential.

    Pros

    Well, it's a paycheck and you might get some professional experience

    Cons

    Prey on top talent and pay bottom of the barrel
    Non-existent training
    Less than competitive salaries and max 5% annual bonus (if you're so lucky to get a performance review)
    No regular cadence for performance reviews
    Lack of senior-level accountability
    Non-existent family/work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees. This means more than free breakfast once a month.

    It's been good so far.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Sunquest Information Systems

    Pros

    It seems that a lot of people stick around with this company for many years, and there is promotion from within the company.

    Cons

    It seems to be that everyone knows everyone at the company, so as a new remote employee, it might be hard to fit in.

    Pros

    People are passionate about the impact Sunquest's software has on healthcare and it really does have an impact. They are trying to recover from multiple owners, but it takes time.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible--they make trucks of money, but really resist giving raises. The technology is really old in their core products, if you are not careful, you can end up with an antiquated skillset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be a great company, pay for the best talent.

    Pros

    The company offers great pay and has a great training program. Benefits are also good. The work environment is good, the company is not in danger of failing.

    Cons

    It was unreal that the senor management could not see that the office manager they hired was incompetent, in over her head, and that she had emotional/mental issues.

    I worked at Sunquest Information Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    During my time there were a lot of caring people who were subject matter experts and would work tirelessly to meet the goals and provide great customer service. It is a good place to learn about Healthcare IT and in some departments they have very robust processes and procedures that when followed, yeild great results. It is also a good place to gain a little experience before looking for a job you would want to commit to for more than a year or two.

    Cons

    The executive team is completely disconnected from the reality of the business. They don't seem to understand if 1+1=2 this year, 1+1 cannot possibly equal 20 the following year if nothing entering into the equation changes. So many people stuck it out for as long as they could, beyond burn out, then ultimately either failed in the eyes of management, or gave up. People who work there now that don't belong to the "aptitude hire" club are unhappy and looking for new jobs. In one department alone I have heard the attrition was 70% in the last year. I am asked to serve as a reference or write letters of recommendation frequently, sometimes more than one in a given week. If the leadership team is able to turn it around, it won't happen over night. They have lost too much skill and experience. I would say steer clear of Sunquest until there is executive leadership change and it starts moving in a positve direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The problem with giving advice to the executive team is that they have already heard it and they don't care. Perhaps the advice should go to Roper - look at the business, is this what you thought you bought? They are the only ones who can correct the situation with a fresh leadership team.
