    I worked at Orion Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At this point in time, there are truly no reasons anyone should consider this company.

    Cons

    Company is bleeding money, and management has spent years jumping from one fad idea to another. They have no vision. Their only tactic seems to cut expenses (ie, fire staff) for supposed short-term profits. The US was one of the most profitable parts of the business just a few years ago. The US is now hardly a few dozen people with an ever decreasing competency. Clients are peeling away in the US rapidly. Revenues are falling at an even more rapid rate.

    The employees that are there are awesome! The work environment is great, cabinets full of snacks, fridge stocked with milk, seltzer yogurt, beer, cream ect. We get weekly fruit and cereal. Its a great place to get your feet wet and become a man of many tech hats.

    I worked at Orion Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay was good, benefits were okay, some flexibility.

    Cons

    NZ gets in the way. As many point out, they do not realize the US market is different and needs to be able to do things on its own without running by Papa Bear. But that will never happen as long as Orion can survive off the revenue the US generates. NZ wants to keep control for as long as it can, but I'm positive this model will ultimately fail (to the benefit of those who have stuck it out in the US). I have stopped mentioning to others I work with in healthcare IT that I worked for Orion because it is now an embarrassment while it was once something I was proud of.

    I worked at Orion Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A good amount of work, a lot of exposure to different technologies. Good benefits package. Good career opportunities if you REALLY push for it.

    Cons

    Too much focus on bottom-line, rather than on their people to lift the bottom line. Pay is not competitive for the most part. Progression is hard, particularly in development unless you are friends with the right people.
