    I worked at Allscripts (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation, great benefits, and in general a very good atmosphere in which to work. Management attempts to be very transparent

    Cons

    Lack of clear vision and how to get there. Use of Six Sigma style evaluations. Too many developers hired as Seniors who aren't really senior.

    Advice to Management

    Although collaboration is a good thing, too much of it is a bad thing. Stop making the logical fallacy that since the best teams in the world are self organizing, that all self organizing teams will be their best.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and people that are ambitious in their working environment. Upper management cares about the little guy, that if you need an emergency, they are willing to accommodate.

    Cons

    Little room for growth. I've been making the same salary for 3 years now... and I've been working smart and hard. Just at the point to where now I'm looking to transfer jobs in order to grow some more.

    Pros

    Company has improved a lot. Some teams are great to work with but some are a real challenge - demanding lots of overtime to meet unrealistic schedules

    Cons

    Financials still focus on bookings (sales) because company has a hard time turning them into actual revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Get the business units to support each other so the same functionality is not being recreated in multiple business units

    I worked at Allscripts (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Timeline

    2002 - I started at A4 Health Systems - CEO, John McConnell, top down were terrific.
    2003 - A4 buys Compusense from NH
    2003-2006 - Some sort of agreement was made during the acquisition of Compusnese - for some reason all of their employees became managers even though they had no product knowledge beyond their PM system. For example a long time A4 employee that was well respected and loved by his employees was demoted so a non-manager from Compusense could take his place. employees were not happy, and some A4 VP's etc basically disowned people they worked with for years in order to keep climbing the ladder.

    2006 - Allscripts acquires A4 - All heck breaks loose as new Mangers now become Directors - and they in turn promote unqualified personnel, friends etc. to become mangers.

    Sometime later maybe 2008 ?? - They hire a new VP to co-ordinate the new call centers in India - big call "No-one from the US will be laid off, only new hires will be from India and they go through an extensive English language training program" Well of course anyone that can hear can tell they are from India, clients were not impressed, these are not clients that are buying $100 items from Best Buy they are paying sometimes 10-50K a year for support, getting someone from India on the phone who has no idea what they are doing is not their idea of good customer service, surprise , surprise

    I got laid off in 2015, by that time management was in chaos, no senior leadership left that had a clue, it was basically "Hope we get a bonus this year". Oh they also stopped paying overtime and expected you to carry a beeper and be oncall whenever they wanted you to be for free.

     Glad I got laid off when I did.

    Cons

    None now, I was laid off in 2015

    Advice to Management

    Fire most of your middle managers and Directors, hire some real talent

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

    Pros

    Allscripts believes in strong life/work balance which showed in everything from their support of telecommuting to delivery of benefits.

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors never seemed to have an overall plan or goal when approaching work or their people.

    Advice to Management

    Take greater interest in who you hire for managers and supervisors. Make certain their goals parallel Allscripts, not theirs.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Friendly staff. Casual attire allowed.

    Cons

    Too many process inconsistencies. Weak management. Reactive vs proactive, making it difficult to incorporate improvements. Concerned that new office space will be worse - more traffic, less parking.

    Pros

    Allscripts provides a nice atmosphere for it's employees and allows us to work independently without a lot of micromanagement. There are also fun work functions, it's a good company and fun to work here.

    Cons

    I don't feel there are any cons here that you wouldn't find at other places. Everyone has different idea of a con, so I don't feel that anything qualifies as a con for me
