I worked at Epic Systems Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- good pay and benefits - interesting work; challenging and requires critical thinking skills - accumulate airline miles and hotel points

Cons

- vacation days are a joke - exorbitant amounts of responsibility and high expectations for them all - a lot of travel, mostly to the same place if you only have one customer

    Worth doing to know what it is like to be treated like Cattle to Slaughter

    Pros

    Travel.. not the constantly traveling to the point where you don't know why you pay for your apartment; but the extra travel you can do on weekends to keep you from killing yourself Decent starting salary.. until you do the math of hours worked. Lots of responsibility, which can be a great experience

    Cons

    You don't know your job until about a month in I got in trouble for averaging a 60 hour a week month once... Higher ups make promises you are expected to keep Any talk that doesn't fit the cult it considered dissent Unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Stop threatening people with getting fired to make people work harder, that is an awful strategy. You invest money to recruit.. spend time to keep the talent, don't punish them by giving more responsibility.

    I have been working at Epic Systems Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are really smart and generally fun. Meaningful work - doing something that truly makes a difference with patient care. Culture is fun. Very pleasant to come to work every day - the campus is amazing and it's a very comfortable work environment. More opportunities for meaningful work/leadership earlier than at many other companies.

    Cons

    Flat structure is good and bad - not a lot of hierarchy but also can mean limited leadership opportunities once you get to a certain point (the longer you've been here/the further you are in leadership roles) There can at times be a lot of work and a lot of travel. After a while you can control the travel quite a bit though.
