Senior Support Consultant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 19, 2015
Allscripts is a great place to work they just fall short on raises and listening to employees suggestions. I learned many skills here and the on the job training was great. Direct managers were pleasant to work with but it seems like good ideas from the employees fell through the cracks. Co-workers were more than willing to go out of their way to help and the overall culture of the company was nice. Good place to work.
There is no work life balance at Allscripts - managers require 60, 70, 80 hours and more. When you think you've given all you can give, they TELL you to work Saturdays and Sundays and nights and forget your vacation -- they tell you to get on conference calls at the beach!
Solutions Architect, Pharmacy (Former Employee) – Malvern, PA – October 1, 2015
I enjoyed working for the company and with my co-workers in my department and others. We worked as a team to assist each other when in need or to just share info. The hardest part of the job was working remote and not having face time with team members except when at client sites. Miss the face team meetings we use to have. I liked how we had a good working relationship with the development team. This helped us as employee's along with our clients.

Allscripts has great benefits and compensates well. However, there is no job security in this company. They do not value their employees and longevity, loyalty and proven job success are of no concern to this company.
good benefits and compensation
mandatory 24/7 beeper rotation, stressful metrics to meet that are many times out of the control of the analyst, micro mangement with every phone call, screen change, task being recorded and results sent to mgrs
Fast paced challenging environment. Used to be a fun place to work before Company changed hands and management. Now morale is low due to the change in company culture. Not enough recognition/appreciation for employees who work hard and do a great job. It helps that fellow employees are freindly and work well together despite favoritisim and sometimes lack of communicaiton from managers
on-site cafeteria and fitness center & good salary
favortism and lack of communication from management
Misleading when Hired, Poor communication from all levels
Implementation Consultant (Former Employee) – Remote – May 7, 2015
Expectations changed on a weekly basis without much communication from management. In general, the management was very poor at communicating expectations and company goals to the people on the ground who had direct interaction with the client. Internally it was difficult to find assistance from other departments. It was great to work from home, yet at the same time you are expected to always be available, whether it is before/after normal work hours or on weekends. My direct coworkers are great people who are always willing to assist. Management needs an overhaul as people who do not have the leadership qualities to be in that position keep getting promoted about their skill level. I loved the prior CEO and thought he had great vision, but not so sure about the current CEO. He does not share as much and it is hard to determine where your place in the company is or how you fit into the bigger picture.
Worked from home
Poor communication, Poor management, Not given tools / time needed to be successful
Senior Instructional Designer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 27, 2015
Strong teamwork with good support from each member of the team. Good project manager with no micro managing. A typical day at work started early and sometimes ended late. Working remotely was beneficial. I learned much about the instructional design process. The hardest part of the job was the long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was completing a large project within the desired time frame.

It's an exciting and ever-changing work environment, with a lot of dedicated people. To succeed here, you must work hard, do a great job, build your relationships, but also be aggressive about managing your own career forward... nothing will ever be handed to you without your active intervention.
Support Consultant (Former Employee) – Chicago, Il – January 22, 2014
If this is an example of corporate America at its finest, than let me off of this ride. What a confused and messy environment. Management playing employee against employee and promises of raises and promotions are all lies.
pretty much everything else. also, very racially charged atmosphere...a clear back of the bus mentality.
Allscripts is a great company to work for, the benefits are good with many options to choose from for you and your family. Salary is competitive. 401k matching is fair
Only downside, as a remote employee I don't have the day to day interaction with co-workers and sometimes feel like I am questioned more then other workers when it comes to where I got information I am passing along to clients.
