    I have been working at athenahealth full-time

    Pros

    awesome culture, cool office environment, very open company where you can meet anyone and share your thoughts, they respect your idea no matter what ever cohort you are in.

    Cons

    The companies structure changes very often and your role keeps on changing very often and it is very difficult to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    appraisal process is poor, no matter how hard an employee works, he/she will not get exceeds if they have not completed one year working at athena.

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

    Pros

    Its a good work environment. It has many fun activities and work life balance is definitely there. The people are really good at mentoring and helping

    Cons

    There is a lot of politics. Decisions of higher management is not openly known to below in the lower cadre. Also the person who is working hard is not recognised , instead people who are always behind higher heirarchy people are recognised.

    Advice to Management

    Please value the hard work of people. The HR should have an upper hand and intervene to solve employee's problem. People who are silent yet work hard should be recognised

    I have been working at athenahealth full-time (More than a year)

    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 better than 80% companies out there. Work culture here is addicting. I am sure people who left this company must be missing athena for its culture.
    4.Free cab facility, food coupons, lots of parties, disco, free food, and drinks.No dress code as such and reimburses gym membership fees up to 10K.
    5.Flexible timings.

    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.

    "Athena health India comprises predominantly bug fixing teams in all products who have little scope for development"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Learning the art of bug fixing in less time and patching up.
    - Learning from people from cross functional backgrounds and different skill sets.
    - Some people demonstrated excellent developer mindset and can learn a lot from them.

    Cons

    - Mostly bug fixing work, less respect from US fellow employees and unrealistic expectations. Expect mails about top to bottom changes in architecture without any notice or discussions.

    - Outright obsolete technology ( Perl & Webservices) and extremely difficult to find a job outside with the same skill set. Many switched companies just for this one reason.

    - Frequent calls during the evenings and nights which will DESTROY your work-life balance.

    - The MICRO- Managers are workaholics and expect employees to stretch on par which leaves the employees stressed
    out.

    - Managers not the company have the SUPREME authority to take decisions over any employee. HR team is spineless.

    Advice to Management

    - Please learn how process are adhered strictly from CMMI Level -5 companies. People are not fools anymore to follow your oppressive policies.

    - Please work on creating work related policies and standardize them by keeping up to date with the process followed in CMMI Level -5 companies.

    - Please don't be biased and take highly subjective decisions instead of establishing rules and norms.
