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

    Pros

    1) Incredible employee base - smart, passionate, caring, driven 2) Flexible scheduling and benefits (beer fridges and bring dog to work) 3) Developing into a mature company, shifting from start-up (disruptor) to industry giant (leader)

    Cons

    1) tumultuous at times, especially historically with the transition from start-up, publicly traded company to a private equity owned company 2) Benefit offer could be improved, definitely comparable to industry and peers, but finding new ways to differentiate the benefits would make Athena stand out more in candidate eyes 3) Rinse and repeat cycle - like any company with change overs in management come "new ideas" that are new to the leader, but not new to the company. The main thing that will make Athena successful in the future is committing and executing. Athena does not suffer from a lack of ideas, but does suffer from a lack of delivery. Athena has a knack for promoting people from within, but sometimes that can lead to a culture where people are not qualified or have a lens limited to just the company as opposed to how a industry or project planned methodology would tackle a challenge
