    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...

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to "act like owners" make them actual owners by compensating with stock. You are already losing the employees who care about people over products. Be prepared for a culture shift you may not like. Hire more diverse people into leadership positions. I wish things were the way they were 2 years ago when I joined.

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

      Pros

      It use to be the cool company to work for..

      Cons

      It is not the company that it use to under JB leadership. Restructure every year, there is another restructuring coming later this year.. Bob Sergent is an horrible CEO and will run the company down! In finance, there is no flexibility and very little work life balance. Finance is very different from other parts of the company because there is lots and lots of politics and no...

        I worked at athenahealth full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        - Dog friendly, - Casual attire - Nice campus with food trucks and open area

        Cons

        - Dog friendly, some individuals' dogs are not well trained resulting in a very distracting environment. - No work life balance. There's a gym and the campus is set up like a start up so you have all your amenities to work there 24/7... - Hard to book conference room space and you see people literally sitting on the FLOOR during meetings. - Restructurings, reorgs, layoffs...

        Advice to Management

        Evaluate the culture you want to project and the direction of the company. The turnover is a direct reflection of the management's volatile decisions.
