    Business systems analyst

    Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsIf you are with the right team , your experience will be the better of many evils. The company has continued growth and profitability which aids in job security.

    Cons1. The pay is less than market for business systems analysts .
    2. There is no bonus structure in compensation. Expect as measly 1-2 percent discretionary bonus that's put into your 401k.
    3. There is no visibility. It feels as if every team and business unit is running on separate agendas . There is no systematic overall business approach .
    4. There is no employee recognition. There morale is low and company culture is stale . This is a place for individuals to coast with their head hung low as they bridge themselves to something much better.
    5. Promotions are based on political affiliation. The majority of managers have a technical acumen with no clue how to manage individuals.
    6. Ethics are very low. Managers constantly engage in deceptive and tactless practices .
    7. You position will change based on client/business needs without input .

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a complete overhaul of middle management .

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Why bother going to the office?

    Senior Developer (Former Employee) Wakefield, MA

    ProsYou will certainly be exposed to a lot of Oracle and unix script development. Good place to brush up on your skill set.

    ConsSo called teams are just people supporting the same customer but doing very different things. No sharing of knowledge between developers on different teams. I felt like I was on my own most of time. Most contacts were "working from home". Whole days were spent without actually talking to a co-worker face to face. Health insurance is expensive and not very good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate knowledge sharing teams, especially among IT staff. There must be a lot of re-inventing of the wheel. Very inefficient. A lot of wasted effort right now.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Boring and antiquated

    Senior Director, Marketing Technology (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsWork - life balance and stability

    ConsAntiquated technolgy, process, and ideas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed some change and it needs to start at the top. Culture does not foster care for associates - we are just numbers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Epsilon bought us

    Senior Director, Project Delivery (Current Employee)

    Pros401k matching, encourage charitable donations

    ConsEmployee are a commodity

    Health insurance is bad and even after huge deductible, in-network, it only covers 80% - major illness could bankrupt me

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to best leverage employees vs trying to make them cheaper

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It offers up many challenges.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe ADS mothership is a financially stable company which is able to support Epsilon's initiatives as required. There are some truly interesting problems to solve, and puzzles to sort out, which makes the work rewarding.

    ConsWorkload to staff ratio lacks balance, making work/life balance nearly impossible. There are many directors at the company who perform as managers, and many VP's who perform as directors. There are a lot of floating agendas which either trivializes the immediate work, delays the immediate work, or negatively impacts the quality of the work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNon management employees work hard and long hours to get work done.

    ConsManagement changes due to reorganization in 2012 were not up to previous standards. Management let go due to politics were 1000 times better and employees respected them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet friendly managers who care for their people and are competent.

    Not a very good experience working there. They give away VP titles like free lunches.

    Director (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSome people are smart but they don't share information

    ConsVery close to the chest when it comes to sharing information

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the culture to one which is more open, honest and transparent

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    awful

    Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) North Wales, PA

    ProsGreat colleagues who work really hard for little compensation or accolades.

    ConsContract assignment with no real job growth plan.

    Advice to Senior Managementdon't use people as pawns

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
