    I worked at Allscripts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Annual holiday party, 401(k), health insurance plan somewhat expensive compared to other companies. Knowledgeable staff, good pay. Advancement, but only if you are one of the gang and work at the right place to get noticed.

    Cons

    You will receive promotions only if you fit in with the clique. It makes no difference how technical and customer service oriented you are, if you’re not working in the right location for management to notice you, you pretty much go unnoticed. I have seen unfair treatment of technicians over the years, benefits removed and never substituted for anything else. Technicians are stretched thin and leadership wonders why morale is low. Ridiculous expectations by leadership, you are not given a true voice to speak although you are told you are. Instead of working with you, they whisk you away if things aren’t going well and are very quick to substitute you with someone else, playing mind games all the way and lying straight to your face.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating employees like human beings, they are your truest asset. Stop making the organization so management heavy. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Listen to your employees and your managers, they speak from experience and can provide some insight on what needs to be changed. Dynamics are awful. I have seen many good employees start off great and then go south to the point of burnout. Make some serious changes from the top down, otherwise you will continue to lose great talent.

    Pros

    Big company. Decent benefits. Decent online learning for employees

    Cons

    Leadership is poor. Constant turnover at least every six months your reporting structure changes. Focus seems to be the internal politics vs. client and customer problem solving. Quarterly last minute fire drills don’t constitute strategic direction or plan. Toxic internal work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Cronyism, nepotism needs to go.
