    Pros

    Good base pay and holiday/PTO

    Upper management is ever changing creating uncertainty. Frequent (12-18 mo) layoffs. Front line and mid level management places little value on employees. Outsourcing more and more jobs to India.

    Advice to Management

    "If the person who's working for your company is not given the right tools, is not looked after, is not appreciated, they're not gonna do things with a smile and therefore the customer will be treated in a way where often they won't want to come back for more. So, my philosophy has always been, if you can put staff first, your customer second and shareholders third, effectively, in the end, the shareholders do well, the customers do better, and yourself are happy" - Richard Branson

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

    Pros

    The company has an excellent suite of products... And some real dogs. It depends. Some of the business units are outstanding. Others are astoundingly, outrageously bad. It depends. Some leaders are fantastic. Others? I literally would not wish them on my worst enemy. It depends.

    Cons

    The sales organization is highly compartmentalized, and the business units frequently step on each others' toes. Relations between management of the business segments can be less than cordial (to the point of fisticuffs). Some sales leaders - I had one - was prone to 1:AM phone calls, hysterics, and not much else of value.

    For a salesperson, though, the worst thing is actually getting paid on the comp plan. I do not know of any big deal where a salesperson didn't have to fight to just get a portion of their commissions as prescribed in the plan.

    95% of the company stock is controlled by a handful of institutional investors. THE top management of the company has said outright that THEY are their customers. And the company acts accordingly. Literally anything goes at end of quarter.

    Advice to Management

    I actually feel for you guys. Glad it's not me anymore.

    I worked at Allscripts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangement -- work from home.

    Cons

    This is hands down the most dysfunctional and oppressive professional experience I have had. Most of the C-Suite are unworthy of anyone's respect, and they have zero concern or respect for their employees. Morale is in the gutter.
    I struggle to find anything positive to say about Allscripts after a year of working there, and feel it was a total waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    The board of directions should let one of Allscripts' competitors acquire the company so the c-suite can be fired.
