What Employees Say
I have been working at Allscripts full-time for less than a year
Very understanding management. Very "giving" atmosphere. Regular "Give-Back" days and opportunities. Regular events to celebrate staff. Free snacks and drinks (anything from Pepsi to Green Tea to... Rockstar Energy Drinks and various others). Electric car charging spots. Very competitive/fair salaries (especially for this area!!). Like, seriously fair compensation. Allowed to take advantage of a "Give-Back" day once per year (allowing you to take a day off so long as you're 'serving your community'). Flexible schedule if you need it. Management will ALWAYS work with you. The directors are absolutely wonderful people. Safe-spaces to discuss issues you may be experiencing are practically every office.
Difficulty to advance/promote from your current position due to bureaucracy/red tape. Atmosphere can sometimes be click-ish, if you work in certain departments. I have not experienced this in the... support department, but have definitely noticed it elsewhere. Share buildings with another Allscripts company, "Avenel". Avenel side tends to disassociate from FollowMyHealth side. This doesn't necessarily create much tension or anything, just some occasional unwelcome feelings at times. Lastly, watching several other people with zero experience in I.T., no degree, and younger than you (which shouldn't matter), get paid more than you when they share the same duties, is rather frustrating. Leaves you wondering what you did to not be on a lower level than somebody with no experience or education.
Advice to Management
You're doing freaking great. Please just be wary of promises you make, and make sure they're solidified before announcing them. I understand things sometimes fall through, this is why you wait. I've... only had one negative experience, and that was being told something about my pay increasing after I first started and after my first review. After said review I was told something different, leaving me to wonder if I just misunderstand what I was told the first time. I am not sure if this is the case or not. Other than that, absolutely zero advice, your employees love working under you.
