    I worked at Allscripts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At its core, there are some very motivated people at Allscripts. Unfortunately, employee turnover is rampant as are the nearly continuous SG&A cuts.

    Cons

    There is no upward mobility
    There is no integration across software platforms
    They continue to fall behind market leaders EPIC, Cerner and even Meditech
    The company is fighting for relevancy

    Advice to Management

    Its hard to win when most of the senior leadership has been turned over from other healthcare IT companies for not delivering. Take inventory of the really good leaders in the company and let them lead at an executive level.

    Pros

    Opportunities to travel, good coworkers

    Cons

    management doesn't care about the employees at all. A bunch of middle management that just sit around and does nothing. Massive layoffs through out the company while top executives exercise their stock options.

    Advice to Management

    hire better people and care about your employees.

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros I can share about this organization. The environment and the manner in which employees are treated is a serious issue.

    Cons

    I have been employed at Allscripts in Whittier, California for a couple of years. The work environment is extremely bad. Each week either someone is quitting or out on stress leave. Employees are over worked and grossly under paid. The executive management is a bully. Not a professional work environment.

    Pros

    Nice chair and desk. Health insurance was pretty good.

    Cons

    Hired people with a lot of experience and trained them in Chicago with the same worthless program they used in India. Treated them like they were in India, too . The training was worthless as it had nothing to do with the actual job that was offered when training was complete. Took advantage of the politicians in Chicago and got all the tax benefits but then paid the people desperate for a job only 42,000 a year. Then laid off most of them not even a year later.

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    PTO time is good. Health Insurance was good but going up every year.

    Cons

    I have had four managers in four years, only one who took any interest in the department and he left. There is one person with the title expert on his credentials who does whatever he likes. They are not telling everyone but they are still out processing about 10 people a day reducing head count.

    Advice to Management

    Don't move a group under a manager that has no clue what the department does, it truly does more harm then good.

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work from home capabilities. Little management oversight outside of Raleigh, NC. Ability to self manage.

    Cons

    One track career. No ability to branch out to other areas. Management will not listen to employees or their division's needs? Management in Raliegh is a revolving door. Poor morale

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees on the front line. Not every solution is interchangeable because it worked for a different product
