Corporation Posing as Startup
Senior Client Implementation Support Analyst (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 17, 2016
athenahealth is a middle of the road kind of company - there are much better and far worse places to work. During NHO they really overhype the advancement opportunities that will be available to you. I mean, you can "advance", but they are almost always lateral moves...no ladder climbing here. Also, their pay is a slap in the face for what you're expected to do. I'm simply putting in my time for the experience, but have been seeking employment elsewhere since I started. For the most part, the employees are pretty cool and the atmosphere is very laid back, tech startup-y. We have monthly Happy Hours where beer is served and sometimes the beer cart will come around just because. Lots of free lunches because we're always in the weeds and they try to show appreciation. Management is a joke. They're really just a middle man between you and the higher ups. They'll hear your grievances and that's about it. Also, be prepared to shuck and jive and kiss a lot of a s s if you want to advance at all - laterally or upward. We were told week 1 it's about your brand - before all else.
