    I have been working at Orion Health full-time for more than 3 years

    People there are great. Also, a lot of them have left during last 2 years

    Some management decisions are questionable from employee perspective, like constant redundancies during last few years and being too focused on how Google or other 'modern' software companies operate

    I worked at Orion Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - I can say without a doubt that the engineering capability and competency at Orion Health is great. Most teams use (or at least try) to involve the latest tech and concepts. Orion sets the engineering competency bar really high and as a result you'll constantly think you are never good enough, but trust me your capabilities will sky rocket compared to individuals at competing companies. - Culture is second to none, the company has a great social aspect and "family" environment. (Obviously depends on the team you're in) Speaking of teams, the Smart Data Platform team is the best. Big shoutout to the new king of the holes, Mitch. #BringBackTim2020

    Cons

    Orions biggest con is that it suffers from not being able to solidify their financial position. We either have too much unnecessary expenditures or we are not getting enough leads though our cat photos from our glorified instagram page. Which one is it Ian? Trick question, both. Sort it out.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Orion Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lovely Atmosphere Cool and Vibrant Culture Cutting Edge Technologies Colleagues are too good and inviting Complete lenience to learn technologies you want as long as it adds value to the company's projects

    Cons

    Employees are so addictive to resign that the company has to make it a tradition historically to perform restructures lol just kidding . We should completely understand there are strong reason's for the top level management to take such harsh decisions and it is not really that easy to kick loyal employees unless there is a steep downfall in the financially curve of the company.
