    I worked at athenahealth full-time

    Pros

    Fexibility in working hours that too specific with teams/Projects which is a good benefit The Facilities and infrastructure management are good No Dress code

    Cons

    There are few teams in Athena where you should not end up after recruited, especially Customer Care division in Chennai, which like a school and the managers always run their own show with their own policies and procedures and by violating the company policy followed across other teams/divisions.

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

    Pros

    The people are still great. My co-workers were always smart and fun and passionate. People believe in the mission statement of Athena and will work hard toward it. Very accepting and diverse environment. It was a joy to work with the people there.

    Cons

    Everything about how the company is run now. There seems to be no direction. All-hands meetings are frequent and filled with corporate buzzwords that with absolutely no substance. Genuine questions from employees rarely get genuine and meaninful answers. The environment team no longer cares about providing a comfortable work environment and instead are focused on cost-cutting. Benefits and perks are being rolled back...

    Advice to Management

    Remember what made Athena great to begin with. Focus on the employees. If you continue to ignore them, you're going to keep losing talent.

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

    Pros

    Travel for work to places you may never consider going to/always wanted to go. Promote internal entrepreneurship. Great co-workers. Bring dogs to office W-F. Accrue and rollover PTO into the following year. Great insurance. Free yoga on Wednesdays. Great as a "foot in the door" position.

    Cons

    Low pay, in comparison to other EMR implementation roles. Political favoritism. Micro-management over menial tasks. Classism from different departments . Lack of respect from hierarchy. No room for growth. Little to no work while in office. In contrast, given busy work from project management that they don't want to do with unrealistic deadlines. Measurable work responsibilities that could be taken care of at...

    Advice to Management

    Hire fewer, better candidates and pay them adequate compensation for their roles. People are leaving the company entirely because the culture is changing to a more corporate setting. Internally promote people based on their merit and experience, not interview skills.
