    I have been working at athenahealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work-life balance Interesting and compelling problems to solve Unique office space Some really great teammates and direct managers

    Cons

    Constant reprioritization and regoranization of departments Lack of diversity - especially in leadership. We used to have quite a few women in high leadership positions (though our ethnic diversity in leadership has never been great.) Due to mysterious firings and changing of positions, we mostly have white men in leadership positions. Could be a pro if you are a white male. New management has changed the focus from the people and the work to just the work. Some of the best humans I have ever worked with have been pushed out of the company in favor of startup bros and "fresh" people who are more concerned with making themselves look good than making their teams feel empowered and have job satisfaction. While the CEO's transparency is a pro, he has said one too many offensive things for me to respect him. He has tried to learn from his mistakes in some cases, but actions speak louder than words. All software developers get stock with their compensation while other R&D functions get none though we also build our products Bad health plan. CEO wants us to shop for our healthcare while he sails on his yacht every weekend. My PT costs $100 out of pocket if I use insurance and $50 with self pay.

    I have been working at athenahealth

    Pros

    The culture is excellent, the people are very friendly, active, and outgoing The perks are similar to what you'd normally find in tech: bean bag chairs, beer fridges, massages, bringing your dog to work, etc.

    Cons

    Doesn't have the same brand recognition as other big-name tech companies, pay isn't quite as competitive (but definitely still very high)

    I have been working at athenahealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Comfort zone, Benefits, work from home policy, flexi benefits like sodexho, internet/mobile bill allowances, Annual performance bonus

    Cons

    The cons may be team wise.. Sometimes opportunity to expose the team member's talent is not recognised by the Manager. Rewards and recognition is not uniform across domains.

    I have been working at athenahealth full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    athenahealth is a collaborative company with a solid foundation and mission. I love the culture and my co-workers. I would recommend athena to anyone who wants to disrupt healthcare.

    Cons

    The last few years have been turbulent with executive leadership turnover, but we have come out unscathed and continue to move forward.

    I have been working at athenahealth full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I left a very toxic company to work at athenahealth and I'm glad I did. This company has great benefits, good pay, wonderful people to work with, and genuinely values employees as people and not just cogs in the wheel. I am so happy working here and love my team and co-workers. The work I do each day makes me feel like I am making a positive change in the lives of many people.

    Cons

    The company is BIG so at times you can feel overwhelmed by all the people and things to learn, but this is hardly a true con.
