    I have been working at NextGen Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    People are nice and supportive here, which makes going to work something to look forward to. The workload is a lot, but challenging.

    Cons

    More work/life balance is my suggestion.

    I worked at NextGen Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Depending on the team, you can work remote if you have to. Collaborative environment, and great teammates. Overall, pretty good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Company is moving a lot of its R&D to India. If you're an engineer, you might want to look somewhere else. Recently, People that have had years of service were just let go. The company showed no loyalty to its employees who have been at Nextgen for 5-10 years, or even more. Every year the company goes through a reorg, which basically means positions being eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in what you have. You have great people working in the US. Stop outsourcing to India if you value quality.

    I worked at NextGen Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance was great. My direct manager was amazing. The benefits were great as well.

    Cons

    The pay is not as competitive for the area we worked in. The executives have gutted and shut down at least one whole office(s) and recently moved their entire R&D division overseas. The people they let go weren't just new or low performance employees but ones vital to the company some with over 20 years of experience. Upper management doesn't care about the end user experience in their products any longer either.... From contacts that are still there most complain about things not getting done from their overseas counterparts and customers are starting to notice the difference. Until 2019 this was the best place to work for. Now I'd swing a wide berth.

    Advice to Management

    Layoffs are sometimes inevitable, but when the CEO is on an a company wide meeting and says they are only doing it to raise their bottom line in the same sentence as financially they are growing then you have lost the plot.

    Pros

    Good pay and nice office location

    Cons

    Horrible culture, no work life balance, got rid of all competent VP’s, no focus on meeting employee needs

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter. Keep the leaders that know what they are doing, not the ones that have been your friends.

    I worked at NextGen Healthcare

    Pros

    I can’t think of one.

    Cons

    To say there is no work/life balance would be an understatement. You’ll be worked to the bone and to make it worse, “leadership” instilled an environment of fear – pressuring team members to essentially out perform their peers as only the top performers will survive. The issue with this is not that a “leader” encourages hard work, but pits people against one another and has less than zero respect for your personal... time. Emails and assignments at a moment’s notice, over the weekend are the norm and work from home rights for entire teams were revoked for no reason. There are far more successful, flexible companies out there who allow employees to be people too, so there’s no reason to join this toxic environment. As resignations continue to roll in, it’s obvious many people share the sentiment that this place has become a terrible place to work. Read all reviews before remotely considering joining an organization who flat out does NOT value its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop turning a blind eye and actually look at what’s happening to your organization. Many talented people are fleeing at rapid rates for a reason.

    Good work/life balance. Great managers and coworkers. Positive work environment.

    "Good People, Good Benefits"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at NextGen Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Good people to work with Good benefits packages are available

    Cons

    Some difficult managers Rough work/life balance depending on department Tough to move up/progress career Low starting salaries Company definitely has "favorites" - although they claim the team gets credit, it will likely be your manager/director getting the praise

    Advice to Management

    You never recognize the folks in the weeds making you look good. Saying "thanks" 4 times a year on quarterly town halls isn't enough. Think you appreciate them enough? Then cut back on your 40% annual bonus and give your real workers more than 2%.
