This company will work you like a dog. When you make mistake because you are tire, the will kick your ass and get you fire.

Advice to Management

They can get rid of the Database Admininstartor Manager and his upper also. What a bunch of management hack does not know how to manage project. (Check to see how many people already left the database management group in a short time)

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Company strives to promote a good employee social atmosphere by sponsoring events such as trivia night, bowling, and happy hours. 2 day work from home is a good benefit, especially given the company charges you to park daily.

    Cons

    Surescripts used to be a company with little turnover, but in 2013, long time employees have been either coached out or outright fired in favor of outside hires to revive their Clinical Interoperability business. Career advancement is not based on merit, but rather who you know. Job openings aren't posted for employees to apply to rather it seems like management already has their buddy in mind for the role. Despite frequent complaints of this practice, the CEO publicly acknowledges employees saying he has no idea this is happening when he himself has been frequently engaging in this practice. I'm not sure why the company picked the current Crystal City location. Most of the employees at Surescripts seem to live in the suburbs of Virgina, and a Tysons Corner or Reston office would have made more sense. The only convenience of this location is the fact that it is right next to Reagan Airport, making it convenient for the CEO, who flies in once a month for meetings. To make matters worse, employees are charged to park daily and the location is over a mile from a metro, limiting metro as a transportation option.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and be more transparent to employees. HR seriously needs to reform the company's employee promotion policy to a merit based system rather than who you know.

    I have been working at Surescripts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Highly competitive compensation. Free lunches every Friday. Lots of fun company events.

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility. Non transparent leadership and company direction. Data sharing between departments is very difficult accomplish. Employees must pay to park.

    Advice to Management

    Have more small brief all company meetings and communicate the direction clearly. Let employees know what is happening in their departments and and others prior to massive reorganizations.
