    I worked at Epocrates as a contractor

    Pros

    Any minor event is celebrated as a group, however big it is.....

    Cons

    The seating of employees is what I was slightly uncomfortable about...

    I have been working at Epocrates full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Management has a solid direction and is following it
    Leadership won't suffer fools, takes action
    Most of the dead weight is cleaned out
    Great business model, ready to turn the corner and do great things unencumbered by legacy red tape at the mid levels
    Great C level folks in place now ready to do great things

    Cons

    Some mid to low level people and teams are still not getting it
    Painful decisions are still probably necessary with regard to more change
    Great ideas around new products may take some time
    Still need to cut SG&A in the right places

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its obvious how hard you are working and that your vision is going to work, so stay the course.

    I have been working at Epocrates

    Pros

    Epocrates makes a difference in the lives of thousands of patients within the USA and internationally. There are few software engineering jobs where you can claim that your work saves lives.

    Cons

    Occasional crises. Some senior management decisions that appear to have been ill-advised. Hiring quality has varied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on core competencies

    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO
