    Pros

    Very good people and culture. The culture is very relaxed and collaborative. Definitely a great place to work in!

    Cons

    There aren't too many cons in this company. I would ask about the turn over rate during your interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing well. I would suggest increasing the ESPP as well as implement a dividend program for stakeholders and employees moving forward.

    Pros

    Creative, friendly, dedicated, lots of energy, flexible and collaborative work environment. Learned a lot on an intense 2 month system build.

    Cons

    You really have to put in the time and effort long term in order to be recognized, would think that if the performance and dedication is there, the rewards would come quicker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the communication open at all levels, love the current direction.

    Pros

    Company is in high growth mode both organically and through acquisition which creates many internal opportunities. The people are among the most collaborative and conscientious I have ever worked with. Onsite gyms and cafés in most locations. Investing heavily in hiring and training new college grads. Compensation and benefits are very competitive, plus there is an excellent 401k matching, tuition reimbursement and employee stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    Due to the fast growth and number of acquisitions, the company is not as cohesive as it could be. Some facilities and internal technology needs upgrading.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see more of the large company profits shared with employees.

    Pros

    Epsilon is very stable and always looking for ways to improve customer experience.

    Cons

    Epsilon doesn't pay to keep it's talent. Often people have to move to other companies to keep up with the cost of living increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a higher cost of living pay increase.

    Pros

    Lots of talented individuals
    Excellent technology
    Constantly evolving organization
    Opportunities to advance

    Cons

    (see Pros above) - if you are average or below then you won't stand out here and won't get promoted or assigned to the latest/greatest technology.
    Fast pace and technology can lead to burnout if not careful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep landing accounts and we will keep delivering! Glad to see additional profit sharing in December for those not already on bonus program. So many improvements in benefits in the last 3 years and they are greatly increasing retention of talented staff.

    Pros

    Depending on who is your immediate manager, it can be a great place to work. You can have freedom in technologies you use and your voice will be heard. You will be appreciated greatly if you do a good job. Great office location and environment. People are very friendly. You get a free gym membership.Most importantly they are growing fast and it helps to be part of a rapidly growing company. Also if you do a good job you can get promoted without typical loops and hoops of big corps. Great work life balance depending on the phase of the project and your role in it.

    Cons

    They are not good in raises and merit increase rate. You have to be pushy in order to a get a raise or promotion. They focus too much on being Advertising Agency than being a Software Company, hence technology people would feel left out of company's focus sometimes. But that being said you would still be heard and can put influence in the corp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more generous in compensation because people get really discouraged when they see the raise rates. Also please dont let technology people like developers, designers, and DB team, feel left out of the vision of the company.
