- Innovative company - Willing to take on new and exciting challenges - Constantly reinventing itself based on business needs - Extremely intelligent and hard working employees - Collaborative across divisions (does not operate in silos) - Six weeks paternity leave
- Health insurance benefits are subpar + Large employee contribution per paycheck for Family & high deductible - Very demanding schedule (no work-life balance) - Little to no upward job mobility + Career Pathing is a foreign concept - Low end of competitive salaries range2
- 5.0May 25, 2021Associate Member of Technical Staff (AMTS)Current Employee, less than 1 yearChennai
- Extremely knowledgeable and helpful peers - Thriving for excellence is a core company value - Get to work on latest tech stack - Every effort is recognized - Competitive salary and good perks act as a cherry to the cake - Special Covid Relief support like 10 days leave and healthcare benefits
- Some teams have to work on perl as a backend - No other cons as such1
- 2.0Mar 31, 2017ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsWatertown, MA
-Solid benefits including 21 PTO days to start, 50% match up to 6% on 401k, reasonably priced health insurance, paternity benefits -Some teams are high functioning, but not all - when you work with smart, driven people you love your job -Culture is great - dogs to work, friendly people, many of whom are driven -Middle of the road compensation -Good bonus structure
-401k match could be better -health insurance benefits have rapidly deteriorated while the CEO claiming he wants the employees to 'shop around' -which is impossible in the current marketplace. -Some directors/VPs take on teams and then fire half the team because they don't like previously agreed upon work arrangements. Those of us left behind feel like we can be let go on a whim. Very toxic. -Many managers are overwhelmed with work and people manager responsibilities, giving us zero time to dedicate to employee development. Managers are not rated on their ability to develop people, leading to misaligned incentives and employees feeling not supported because managers are too busy being individual contributors -'top heavy' structure leading to too many directors and above -Constant re-organization of the company. It didn't work in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016... and here we are trying again in 2017. Many groups are caught in this crossfire and spend months not knowing where they will be or what they will be doing.24

- Bring your dog to work - Casual dress - Generally amazing people to work with
- Benefits are horrible; the push for 'shopping for care' is at the forefront while we're left with high medical bills when something catastrophic happens. You cant shop for care when you're in the back of an ambulance. - CEO continues to be distasteful in company meetings and when big issues are addressed. Hes an eclectic man, but should be more respectful of questions and issues that employers bring to him. - There is little to no room for career growth. Promotions happen on a networking basis. This past year resources and staffing were the worst I've seen leading to little to nothing for anyone to accomplish to build a case for promotion. We need more mid level management that knows what they are doing and not promote based on needing to fill an org chart.7

The company simply doesn't value its employees. Over the past year we have gone through 3 departments and had our jobs enlarged 3 different times with no increase in pay or benefits. We are constantly made to feel like we don't deserve the pay we get (which is 1/2 of what competitors pay for similar roles) and that the new responsibilities are just us earning the laughable salary we receive. The job title and responsibilities that we accepted the pay for when we agreed to work for the company are nowhere near the title and responsibilities that we are expected to do now. I believe that if we were told the entire scope of this job before joining the company, over 75% of the employees would have continued their job search and not gave Athena a chance. The company sells its employees dreams and by the time reality hits, its too late. People have left cities, family members, and long term careers to work for Athena only to find out that the job is nothing like what they were told during the hiring process. This is a huge issue and the turnover rates show.6athenahealth Response6y
This is not what we like to hear! We invest heavily in our total rewards here at athena, and feedback like this helps us. We would highly recommend bringing up any compensation concerns to your manager or HRBP. While we respect your opinion, we must disagree regarding career growth. athena is consistently above average in terms of career advancement and internal mobility. Many of our tenured athenistas and leaders have grown and advanced their careers within our organization. We'd be happy to continue the conversation, though. E-mail us at email@example.com

1) Incredible employee base - smart, passionate, caring, driven 2) Flexible scheduling and benefits (beer fridges and bring dog to work) 3) Developing into a mature company, shifting from start-up (disruptor) to industry giant (leader)
1) tumultuous at times, especially historically with the transition from start-up, publicly traded company to a private equity owned company 2) Benefit offer could be improved, definitely comparable to industry and peers, but finding new ways to differentiate the benefits would make Athena stand out more in candidate eyes 3) Rinse and repeat cycle - like any company with change overs in management come "new ideas" that are new to the leader, but not new to the company. The main thing that will make Athena successful in the future is committing and executing. Athena does not suffer from a lack of ideas, but does suffer from a lack of delivery. Athena has a knack for promoting people from within, but sometimes that can lead to a culture where people are not qualified or have a lens limited to just the company as opposed to how a industry or project planned methodology would tackle a challenge

Decent pay (could be more to make up for stress) & benefit package. Generous PTO. If your manager is supportive you can learn a lot and advance with great pay within 5 yrs.
Terrible training with moderate support. Success really depends on manager support. Some managers are much better than others. Managers are the gatekeepers to advancing in the company so if your manager doesn’t like you or is racist you can forget about it.

They can try to give a car lease policy to the employees as part of the benefits!
