    I worked at EPIQ Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good but you end up selling your soul to the devil by working here. Eventually you learn it just isn't worth it...

    Cons

    This place is so bad we've formed a support group for "survivors of Epiq Systems". Don't believe anything they tell you about the Golden Rule, their stable finances or collaborative culture. It is a snake pit with more than 35% turnover in a good year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that when everyone else is telling you that there is a problem, it can't be everyone else who is to blame. Stop fooling yourself Mr. Olofson - the problem is you.

    I have been working at EPIQ Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The compensation was average for a document review job. However, there was a small bonus structure in place for the amount of hours worked in a year.

    Cons

    Management was unresponsive most of the time. Out of 10 people who emailed our contact only 1 person would get a response regarding snow days, hours paid. A co-worker did not get a reply from her notice that she was leaving the job. Also, there was a continued promise of overtime (they kept posting for additional employees the job with overtime) when they new from the beginning that the client would not pay overtime and hours were capped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be responsive to your employees, especially the ones working long-term contracts. Be aware of signs when morale is low since many jumped ship for a extra $1/hour.

    Pros

    Company Values, Company Culture, Compensation, Level of Communication, Great Security. They have a great team mentality, everyone is always willing to help each other and pass on learned tricks and techniques.

    Cons

    The building is in a more sketchy part of town, and there is not a lot of places to park.

    I worked at EPIQ Systems

    Pros

    You always get to work with bleeding edge technology. Never a boring day, there is always something new everyday.

    Cons

    The long hours and on call can be grueling. Lots of fire drills and last minute get them done now projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just think things are running smoothly, ask you subordinates about moral. Plus, keeping information to yourselves is not the best plan.

    Pros

    The majority of my co-workers were pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Management is horrible and favoritism is shown but not based upon excellent work ethic but if you're weird enough to fit in their clique. If you are experienced or competent this is not the place for you. Regardless of your past experience or knowledge of your job, they will stick in you in some lowly position and you won't have any job satisfaction. Layoffs take place often and the turn-over rate here is ridiculous. Some people work extremely long hours and the work isn't fairly distributed. Run far far far away from this place!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place is an Epiq Fail!!

    I have been working at EPIQ Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They pay well and reward good performance. The employees are well-picked, with no grating personal hang-ups, just sane, adult people. They provide good quality equipment. They offer excellent technical training, paying for tech conference attendance, Plural Sight accounts, and annually, a known technologist is brought in for around a week of training.

    Cons

    The processes cause frustration and churn. Upper management's decisions are inscrutable. Architectural guidance in application development is lacking.

    Pros

    Super people to work with. Problem solvers, not finger pointers. People are easy to approach and willing to help if you need it.

    Cons

    Priority shifting can cause slow down in development and assistance. If your working on a certain issue, then get pulled off in the middle of it, it takes a while to get ramped back up once you get back to it. It has become more "corporate" in the time that I spent there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't have "secret" projects. people outside the project, or those that were on the previous project have good insight on development and maintenance of that product that can help in the long run.
