    I have been working at Allscripts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working from home is an option. Fairly standard benefits package (401k 100% up to 4 or 6% I can't remember) 15% discount on company stock (although it stays below $15 at 10 now yikes.

    Cons

    Buys a lot of companies, rounds of layoffs. How to log our time on projects. For what I am doing there is no opportunity to move to another team

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying stuff

    I worked at Allscripts full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work in an industry that can be rewarding and has growth

    Cons

    Not a progressive company, more focused on winning through acquisition than on building and enhancing the outdated solutions that their core clients depend on and building a culture that will drive growth and success

    Advice to Management

    Change your leadership where they have consistently not delivered on committed results, from the top down. Listen to your middle management and focus on a culture that is committed to building, supporting and delivering solutions they can be proud of. Stop laying off tenured resources in an effort to enhance your short term bottom line.

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

    Pros

    Good management team. Development and QA teams get along very well. Company is focused on keeping its employees happy. Allscripts does a lot of fun activities such as cookouts, and charitable events. Strong products in the market place.

    Cons

    Very old Microsoft technology stack. Tech stack is based on VB 6 from 1999. Microsoft retired VB 6 about 2005. Unfortunately since the tech stack is so antiquated it is a bit of a career killer. Technology skills quickly erode in this environment. There is not a lot of motivation by senior management to invest in new technology.

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Can be fun, fast paced, rewarding

    Cons

    Painfully slow sometimes, no room for advancement, the company is all about the money and is far from customer oriented. The list can go on. It has taken 3 years to finally make a $1 more an hour than when I was hired. I find that a little insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the complaints and suggestions by your clients and workers. In this day and age, all it takes is one comment to the right person at the right time and this company will IMPLODE and the board will be left scratching their heads and wondering why.

    Pros

    Good company, great Associate Managers

    Cons

    Moved a lot of jobs to India, potential layoffs every quarter. A lot of sales rep lie to their clients to get them stuck in lengthy contracts, in return more concession are needed to be given putting the company in a lengthy track of debt. So many client ending their relationship with Allscripts that stock has fallen tremendously. Upper management needs drastic change.

    Advice to Management

    Needs New Direction drastically especially in sales and finance.

    I have been working at Allscripts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great experience for individual growth

    Cons

    They preach innovation, yet organization conducts business like its the early 2000's. Enough structure to limit your ability to get things done quickly, while not having enough formalized processes where different groups arent held accountable. Unfortunately, things just go round and around, while clients suffer with a bad product and no progress on things.

    Advice to Management

    You cant use the same senior leaders and expect a better outcome. Too many people in leadership positions that maintain status quo. Also, too many tenured people who understand what it takes to remain employed, while not doing enough to add value.
