    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Austin, TX
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at athenahealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone who worked at athena knew what they were doing and generally worked well together. When someone who was was rude and bad to work with was hired, he was later fired because of that.

    Cons

    After Jack (VP of Engineering and head of the Austin office) left, the culture took a bit of a nose dive and then a round of layoffs removed most of the oldest employees and those who made sure that there was a fun culture, then large numbers of other employees also left. I'm not sure how it is now. Also, lots of the work is in Perl.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that employees feel that you're on their side and that things aren't getting worse for power plays.

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

    Pros

    Good location right in the heart of the city and good pantry office space to cool yourself and hang out

    Cons

    There is lot of office politics and preferential treatment for folks who have worked with the executive directors earlier or in their good books others Will be sidelined and asked to leave,firing of employees without reason is very rampant here

    Advice to Management

    With company losing CFO ,CPO(we get a new chief people officer every year) recently I don't think there is anyone who take care of the culture anymore

    Thanks so much for the honest feedback--We hear you! It can certainly feel like there is a gap in culture leadership right now. The reality is that we all own the culture here at athena, and it is our people who make the culture. The good news is that one of our long-standing culture ...

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

    Pros

    There are many good things about working at athena. The culture is welcoming and friendly. People who were considered socially awkward in high school or college will find plenty of like minded people. Athena does a really good job of making sure your manager has regular career pathing meetings with you. Most development employees, 90 percent, will receive a decent or better annual raise plus bonus. All managers of engineering...

    Cons

    Athena has a habit of reorganizing frequently. Although I've only had a direct manger change once in the past two years, many of my coworkers have had their manager change many times in the same time period. One extreme example had 3 different managers in a 2 month span. The insurance is lack luster. It used to be better, according to older employees. Despite the CEO saying that Athena is a strict meritocracy,...

    Advice to Management

    Stop reorganizing all of the time and work harder to keep your best talent. To the CTO, stop being so thin skinned.

    Pros

    1. This organization has an awesome work-life balance. You will feel cared. 2. athenahealth doesn't pay too high salary but it would be above market standards. If you are a workaholic and ready to compromise work-life balance then you may feel underpaid. 3. It started with an unmatched culture. But now, it is getting diluted because of wrong leadership. Gradually adopting service based culture. But still, it is way...

    Cons

    1. The cafeteria is pathetic. Serves boring meals. Nobody looks into this matter 2. Leadership is changing and culture is also getting diluted. Not an American culture totally. 3. Annual hikes are poor.

    Advice to Management

    Please do something for retaining employees.Management tries to retain them after they put their papers, which is useless. Give hikes, promotions, awards and recognitions to make them stay. A company is made by its employees so please retain them. Attrition rate is very high nowadays.
