  4. "Toxic culture from top down, favoritism, no accountability from executive leaders"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Allscripts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some good people still around, but most of the competent ones left due to toxic culture from top-down. Career opportunities in India only, Dead-end for North American employees.

    Cons

    Toxic culture from top-down. The executives never seemed to be accountable for their actions/non action. Kept losing clients and no one seems to care. Senior Executives traveled to India offices and stop by Europe for shopping/sightseeing. In addition, if the employees are in-group of the executive leaders, one do not need to be accountable for their performance nor deliverables. Poor performance is totally acceptable with no consequence. Not only they will get special treatment and opportunities to work on new stuff, but also being "protected' from various layoff waves. This company does not deserve any competent individuals and people with integrity and good ethics to stay and contribute. Leave as soon as you can find any other opportunities.

    Only pro is you get to work from home when you are not traveling during the week

    Not a very good company to work for as a Project Manager. You will work very long hours. You are held accountable for everything but have no authority over resources doing the work.

    Pros

    They have money and your job is not secure so negotiate aggressively. Ability to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    Weak and/or emotional senior leadership is unable to manage concurrent priorities and thrashes the organization from one emergency to the next. Inability to coordinate and prioritize needs across departments guarantees constant discovery of unplanned emergencies. Pervasive and ingrained culture of 'work harder (not smarter)' translates to a culture of continual OT and weekend work. In the last 18 months my staff have worked essentially every weekend. Institutionalized system of squelching staff performance ratings prevents realistic career recognition and meaningful career paths. Employees treated as interchangeable Mc-units. Employees are asked to give up approved PTO to work OT on a promise that the time will be given back... then they're laid off without receiving the time or compensation. Senior leadership says whatever is required with an 'end justifies the means' mentality and feels no obligation to it's workers. Senior management has next to zero understanding of Software Development and continually generates technical debt and employs haphazard and inefficient methodologies. As a result, software technology here is in an advanced state of decay and extraordinary events are required to move software forward. This is a company that will let go of their domestic tech workforce and restaff it in India to shift how it's financial numbers look for investors... at your expense.
