    I have been working at Allscripts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Smart people; friendly, casual culture; decent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Salaries could be higher. Products are struggling in the market, so layoffs have become regular. Either poor planning or poor communication: hiring surges followed a few months later by layoffs. Major layoff at the beginning of the apocalypse felt very cold.

    I worked at Allscripts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Allscripts does a good job of screening and hiring very competent skilled professionals. The hiring process is rigorous. I appreciate the opportunities I had at Allscripts but it's clear (even to a line worker) the company needs a great deal of restructuring.

    Cons

    The benefit package is a bit anemic, although internally touted as very good. The insurance benefit has progressively gotten much more expensive and fewer benefits over the years, which might be expected but disappointing for a healthcare company. They have consistent layoffs with poor severance packages. Most disappointing of all is that their value statement and imperatives make no mention of their most important asset - their people. They recently had a large layoff and reduced the salaries of those left by 15%.
