No opinion of CEO

Pros

Health insurance premiums were kept quite reasonable and reviews and increases seemed reasonable and fair early on. There was a focus on teamwork and collaboration.

Cons

Over the years there were many changes in senior leadership that seemed to result in more politics, favoritism, rediculous signing bonuses, and "friends of the new guys" being added to the staff. I think there were about 6 new CEO's in as many years. Ultimately they started outsourcing jobs and I am told that some people had to train their replacements in INDIA in order to get their severance package.

Advice to Management

Keep jobs in the US.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - It's a good way to break into the healthcare IT industry since they will hire anyone with a pulse.
    - Good PTO and benefits.
    - Some flexibility for working remotely depending on your department/manager.

    Cons

    - Clients HATE you from the start no matter how competent you might personally be, because they are so used to receiving awful service from Allscripts.
    - It can be difficult, if not impossible, to find the information you need to do your job. Clients also complain about the difficulty of locating information. Sometimes you get the impression that development is a sort of "man behind the emerald curtain."
    - Cronyism is king. A lot of the managers are surprisingly unprofessional in behavior and appearance.
    - The pay is a joke. Really talented professionals earn salaries on par with day laborers.
    - The CEO's primary interest is lining his pockets and he doesn't mind destroying the company in the process.
    - Have fun trying to work with your "colleagues" off-shore. The only training that Allscripts apparently provides to off shore resources is how to refuse responsibility for any work that isn't exactly spelled out in a document somewhere. To be fair, it may be not so much that they are lazy as that they don't understand English well enough to translate requests that are not scripted.

    Advice to Management

    What's the point? Management is making big money in the short term and will have retired to their yachts and villas by the time the Allscripts house of cards comes tumbling down. They aren't interested in making Allscripts a better place to work - they can undoubtedly buy all the good press they think they need.

    Pros

    Money is Good. Opportunity for Product Portfolio to Get Better with Allscripts Ownership. Product Development has Great Vision, but Poor Execution on Vision/

    Cons

    Product Development and Sales Very Poorly Connected which Makes it Difficult for Field Staff to Deliver on Promises for Clients. Too Much Volatility in Management.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs better follow-thru. Better transparency for clients as to what is being planned for future releases. Client promises need to be delivered on.
