Good for a Year, but no career advancement opportunity and poor management/culture
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 13, 2018
This would be a cool job to snag immediately after graduating college, stay a year, and leave, but overall it is not somewhere you should try to seek growth. The travel is very erratic. You'll end up going from being on the road for 8 weeks straight to spending 3 months in office. While in office there is little to do and you end up sitting around for 8 hours. This may seem great at first, getting paid to do nothing, but it will inevitably lure you into laziness.
If you'd describe yourself as a self starter who doesn't need instruction or direction, then great!! Good luck avoiding management while trying to work on what will advance your career, which doesn't include doing school work, certification work, or any other type of work that they don't believe is work appropriate.

My entire chain of command is no longer at the company. Huge changes going on. They have currently laid off a lot of the CSC and many people have left on their own. Great EMR system. I hope the new CEO and owners can make it a great company.

athenahealth was very close to my dream job and was ultimately torn to leave by company geo-strategy (focusing the product side of the business in locations outside of Atlanta). The people are amazing, the work is awesome, you definitely work hard and play some. The activist investor made the company change a bit also, but again the people and the work were the best part of working here.

Working at Athena health was so much fun, the environment was relaxed and it was a high volume call center. During my employment with the company I learned a lot, I have learn to be confident in my delivery. The managers were very helpful we had one on ones which help have stronger communication skills. The culture of the workplace was transparency, we could be ourselves. There was no hard part in working there. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and the environment was always fun but structured.
We a culture team that planned different fun things for us to do

Good place to work. Good advancement if you get a good manager. Yearly raise and bonus. Annoying corporate stuff and right now potential sale causing job insecurity. Over all good place but you gotta work at it.

Director (Former Employee) – Waterbury, CT – April 7, 2018
This used to be a great place to work. Over the years the owner became money hungry and it became less about the employees and residents and more about what could be done to ensure his pockets stayed fat. Job security was always iffy. Overall, if you are flying under the radar it is not a bad place to work, but anything above a line staff supervisor puts you in the spotlight for scrutiny.
Project Associate (Current Employee) – Remote – March 15, 2018
I have been at athena for almost 6 years. I have seen the company grow in great strides, as well as my share of sad moments. However, overall I highly recommend athena as a great place to work. The culture is fantastic, laid back and they really try to make you feel at home. My Manager is amazing and I couldnt ask for someone better than her! I have learned and grown so much over the extent of my time here. I don't plan on stopping either!

Wage is short for someone in my position, constantly changing, lack of advancement opportunities
