    Pros

    Fexibility in working hours that too specific with teams/Projects which is a good benefit The Facilities and infrastructure management are good No Dress code

    Cons

    There are few teams in Athena where you should not end up after recruited, especially Customer Care division in Chennai, which like a school and the managers always run their own show with their own policies and procedures and by violating the company policy followed across other teams/divisions.

    Pros

    Good talented team members at lower levels. Good Work life balance atleast till a year ago. Decent pay. Re-org with good cause.

    Cons

    With focus being shifted in developing centers in India, there is lot of politics played by people in higher levels (Managers and above). They are more focussed on their personal growth than the growth of the company. They are least bothered about the career growth of the employees. They let down the developers and leads who have been working for the growth of the team once the team is stabilized . They just use them for their growth. Current developers is not given opportunity for growth. There are many process and technical changes happening which is good but this is being misused and reframed by higher managers in chennai for their growth and benefit affecting the actual contributors who reports to them.

    Thanks very much for your feedback! We are happy to hear that you are working with talented team members. However, we are sad to hear that certain politics are making you feel as though you are not receiving the growth opportunities you are seeking. We are excited about our newly revamped management training program and a more comprehensive performance management approach. Hopefully these will address some of your concerns! If you would like to continue the conversation, please e-mail us at askathena@athenahealth.com.

    Great place to work, incredibly smart and driven people. Corporate culture back on up-swing

    Sep 16, 2020 - Senior Paralegal

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    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)

    Cons

    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

    Flexible, transparent company

    Nov 22, 2020 - Data Associate in Watertown, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company is very transparent about its goals and how it works, and it is intentionally transparent for the benefit of normal employees. Regardless of whether or not you agree with the senior leadership's decisions, you'll know they're being straight with you, and you'll know that they are trying to do what they think is best for you and the company. The leadership has chosen a strategy of investing in their employees. Because this is a business strategy and a value (it helps with recruitment and turnover, for one), it comes across differently than some other companies that talk big but don't do much. They intentionally offer salaries that are slightly above market rate, but not too high above market rate. They know that their goal is to get really good employees, even if it means they won't get the best employees in the world, and they're willing to pay for that, because that's what it means to invest in your business strategy. They also try to have a number of smaller benefits and perks to improve retention, and they're good about promoting from within. They've been very flexible about working remotely during COVID, and they strongly encourage everyone to work remotely. This is the case even though they could legally get away with bringing people back as an 'essential business'. People are very enthusiastic about working here, and they mean well and try to do good work. They have company shuttles to a variety of locations to make commuting actually a viable option for people who live in various places. A pretty campus. People bring their dogs to work!

    Cons

    With any large company, your experience will be determined more by your manager than by the company policies. That makes everything a bit of a gamble in terms of coming on. The company was through some turmoil in the last two years in that a private investor bought some, and then all, of the company. We're a few months out of the transition now, so it should be a bit more stable going forward, but some things are still settling. Sometimes people are a little *too* enthusiastic. Oh well. Better than the alternative. The coffee machine's coffee tastes terrible.
