    I worked at Allscripts (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company, grows by acquisitions, pretty good work environment with dedicated people.

    Cons

    Just moved to a new building with "open office" layout (sterile, noisy, visually distracting)
    In process of acquiring another company, so some layoffs are occurring.
    Benefits have slowly deteriorated - higher deductibles, lower payout (was 80%, now 70%)

    Advice to Management

    listen

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility, work from home opportunities in some cities, decent pay. My immediate team is very friendly.

    Cons

    Teams do not work well together. I've been on calls where support, hosting, services, etc will actively avoid tasks. Leadership is incentivized to be silo'ed and avoid using budgeted hours on other team priorities; without one voice leading the network of teams on a single project it quickly turns into institutional infighting. Managers have little leash and can be extremely abusive. I've had one very good manager and one atrocious manager. Bonuses are based on time spent on billed client projects, but you have no control over what projects you are assigned to and can be assigned to nothing but non-billed, rendering you ineligible for bonus regardless of how hard you work.

    I worked at Allscripts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There was a lot of work place independence. I typically traveled alone and was able to make decisions as I best saw fit without micromanagement from my manager.

    Cons

    The travel schedule was unsustainable. It was 100% travel and eventually the company put in a policy that required travel to be either on weekends only or after 5pm on week days. We were expected to be on the clients site Monday - Friday from 8am - 5pm. This resulted in often having a 7 day work week. Often times I would fly out on Sunday work at the client's office Monday - Friday fly home on Saturday and then fly out the next day (Sunday) again to another client. Again it is not a lifestyle that is sustainable for someone with a family or someone who wants a family.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that travel is part of the job and is not leisure time.

    It sounds good but not really

    Everything is wrong, it freezes and kicks us off constantly.

    Refund your offices using this program that are constantly calling in complaint and stop charging for help on outside hours
