    I have been working at Practice Fusion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I just started at Practice Fusion recently. It is immediately apparent that there were some rough times last year (2016) in which the company had to come to grips with a few things and kind of grow up. But now, after all of that, PF is a wonderful place to work. They seem to have learned from their experiences and are plowing ahead.

    Good compensation
    Good benefits and perks, such as lunch three days a week, plenty of snacks and fruit, "Happy Hours" a few times a week, company sponsored events, lot's of appreciation shown for employees
    Great work life balance
    Work from home opportunities
    Wicked smart people to work with, presenting a great opportunity to learn from others
    Great culture! They are very, very careful about preserving the company culture. You have to be a team player!
    Finally hitting profitability .... other places may offer more in the way of perks, but few of those places are operating in the black, which is where PF finally got to by the end of 2016.

    Cons

    It's a small operation ~250 people. So opportunities to grow are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Awesome team with open minded people. Feeling supported all the time with opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Processes can be optimized with better product development culture and leadership. Cross-functional team collaboration can be improved. Less talking and more doing helps drive everything forward.

    Advice to Management

    Move fast and be productive needs everyone's efforts. "Being busy and not available" should not be the excuse and does not facilitate healthy product development culture.

    Pros

    1. Positive collaborative environment.

    2. Your ideas and feedback on anything about the companyare always welcome.

    3. Everyone is super friendly and helpful.

    4. They are interested in seeing you grow career wise and encourage exploring
          opportunities outside of your current job duties for career growth.

    5. Lunch , happy hour and company events are always awesome.

    6. Very flexible PTO.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind, it's a pretty good place for a serious minded person to work and grow career wise, especially if you have a clinical informatics background or are interested in the clinical records side of health IT.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are currently doing.

    Pros

    Although it's over 10 years old now PF still retains some of the can-do energy and fun of a scrappy startup. Most importantly the mission of the company to improve health outcomes and help small medical practices is widely shared and embraced. This shared commitment to an ideal creates a team spirit that is wonderful to experience. Many former employees I know hold their experience at Practice Fusion as a very unique and positive episode of their careers. Most days here have some amount of joy.

    Cons

    For several years the company has been transitioning from an exponentially growing startup with an impossibly optimistic business plan to a real and stable business. While this transition has been largely successful, there have been and continue to be growing pains. There has always been a somewhat conservative bent in the engineering team, and this has gotten more pronounced as the organization has settled. It's encouraging to see the quality gates and the level of review that is put into the development of new features nowadays, but comes at a relatively high process cost. Many of the "big idea" engineering projects of the past are now either completed or have been cancelled.

    At the end of the day we deliver excellent product despite the challenges, and any issue that gets in the way of that is resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Be decisive. Trust the people you hire and promote; and if that trust is violated get rid of them quickly. Be honest about bad news and don't try always to please.

    I felt part of the team right away at Practice Fusion. The company has an awesome culture and is always looking for ways to improve.

Love the snacks and lunches.

    Pros

    The employees of Practice Fusion are some of the best I've ever worked with. Everyone is friendly, professional and motivated. It was a wonderful experience for me to work with such great people.

    Cons

    The company is in a tough market and has never really broken through. There's still time, but the clock is ticking. Also, the company's investors cannot be trusted; they say one thing and do another. Beware.

    Advice to Management

    Don't mislead the employees. If you are planning layoffs, don't say "this is the team we're going with" only months before you swing the axe.

    Excessive churn and change in executive management and organizational structure has created ripples of dysfunction in the company.

    Executive leadership has some work to do to stabilize and regain trust and build a confident productive team.
