    Pros

    Pros are all gone. Healthgrades acquired InfluenceHealth and fired most of the Influence Health people a few days later. Perspective CMS clients run away and do not sign up. Perspective Emps, do not even waste your time applying.

    Cons

    InfluenceHealth/Healthgrades DOES NOT develop their CMS software anymore. CODX is subcontracted through CrownPeak and is utter garbage, CODlite is going to be built on a 3rd party platform called Drupal. COD9 aka Sitemaker was the only software IH ever developed but management decided to let die and not support the latest versions of OS and ColdFusion. (even though they gladly took existing clients money knowing it... was not supported anymore)

    Advice to Management

    This advice is for Healthcare existing management. You guys were suckered by the IH COO and CEO. (misled) You need to dump them and get the people back that had the best relationship with existing clients.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO Great Coworkers Good health insurance plan

    Cons

    Terrible leadership who drove the company down the drain until it was cheap enough for Healthgrades to buy for a song. No one on the executive team ever knew what anyone's job duties were so when layoffs came, it was just a matter of favoritism. CEO was supposedly a strategist and a technical innovator, but he didn't know anything about the products or the people behind them. Cloak-and-dagger executive team who... hid important information from employees, telling them up to acquisition announcement day that everything was fine and not to worry, go ahead and make your 2019 plans.

    Advice to Management

    C-Suite, thanks for giving yourself golden parachutes and letting 1/3 of your IH team die in the crash. We're so happy for you that your 4-5 months of planning was worth giving long-time employees no acknowledgement or apology for the rough handling and insulting send-off. CEO was late to the firing meeting, hid in his office afterwards, and only got emotional when he announced that he wasn't going to be CEO... anymore. You don't deserve to be a CEO - save your crocodile tears for someone who cares.

    Pros

    "Unlimited PTO", flexibility working remote. Weird, only pros are not being in the office.

    Cons

    I've never worked in a more sexist environment. Oblivious boys club leadership. No visibility into employees daily responsibilities. Awful product.

    Advice to Management

    Shame on the CEO for the way he handled the acquisition. He should be embarrassed.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Good benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    IH was just acquired by HealthGrades and you see all congratulations on Linkedin, but what is not talked about is the 40 to 50 employees that were let go after being bought-out by larger company. The CEO was praising everybody their great performance at the beginning of the meeting, then turned it over to the HealthGrades CEO and said we are reducing staff today. Of course the IH CEO is taking a new position at... HealthGrades,(he got paid) while people with years invested in the company where thrown out like last nights kitchen trash. What the HealthGrade CEO does not know is the IH COO has been ruining companies for years. Look at his work record. Ivy League education doesn't make you more qualified that employees in the industry for over 10 years. I guess that's what happens when you promote a developer to a CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be if you are thinking of taking a position at HealthGrades, don't plan to stay long or just realize from the beginning that you will be working with horrible upper-management from the Influence Health side that came over.

    Pros

    Never have to lay eyes on the IH COO, who is hard to look at and listen to. Conniving backstabber with ulterior motives only for himself.

    Cons

    Healthgrades silly you! You let the IH CEO and COO blind side you with all the smoke and mirror products. The ridiculous vapor wear "Unity" platform and a CMS that is subpar. IH products are terrible, talk to Christus Health, Norton Health, Texas Health, Trinity Health, Advocate Health, UCLA, Piedmont Health all large health systems who feel blindsided once they sign the dotted line. IH sells a good tale in the... sales cycle, organizations ultimately learn the hard way the difficult, manual products they just purchased. The CMS on Crownpeak is a nightmare. The way Crownpeak has configured the hosting infrastructure, client sites go down frequently. Clients are already in RFP to get out and off such horrific products. Word on the street is NOT pretty for you Healthgrades. Organizations network and your name is in the gutter. Two deceitful, untrustworthy, fraudulent organizations merging = MORE lawsuits for both. STEER CLEAR for many reasons. Do your homework!

    Pros

    High technical aptitude among the rank and file. Massage facility downstairs. Opportunity to use some of the best technology. Researched new methodologies.

    Cons

    Nepotism was rampant. Few promotions for current employees as the friend of someone with influence often was installed before interviews occurred with those on the inside Chaos erupted beginning in 2011. Many GREAT managers (and a few not-so-great) were let go while (I assume) better-connected, less-capable managers remained. Product design was not epistemic at all. There was no wealth of evidence that could... overturn the misguided opinion of a manager -- unless it saved money or time. Jargon was the preeminent currency, even if it had no financial backing. I'm quite sure that some people were promoted through their presentation of a preponderance of meaningless techie-sounding words hastily concatenated and finalized by a declarative smirk. Some employees did an amazing job while working in a particular area for a good manager, but after moving to a different area with a different manager, they'd be gone within a few months. I never heard any of them express concerns and many of them appeared to be just as productive as ever. It seems that perhaps merit is a lower priority than manager whims.

    Advice to Management

    This was a great company until you relinquished control to a different set of investors. The people who built MEDSEEK and were responsible for its success were a special group and cannot be replaced for the sake of a smaller budget footprint. What I noted in my last few years was the appearance of a lot of people in high positions whose credentials seemed far more impressive than their competencies. They were... replacing people who from my observation had excellent competencies, but perhaps not the same credentials. This seems to be a persistent condition: Those looking down on operations with binoculars clearly see the brightly adorned officers while those on the ground in the fight see the NCOs that are actually leading the battle where it matters.
