I worked at Epic Systems Corporation full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Working with some of the brightest young minds is the ultimate "pro". At the end of the day, your obligations are to your install and not necessarily Epic which can be good and bad. If your goal is to be in healthcare, working for an EHR company is one of the fastest ways to gain valuable experience and insight into current industry standards and the "healthcare of tomorrow".

Cons

Epic does have a cult-like feel that you get with most large corporations. If you do not like travel, do not even think about being an implementer. I would say the largest downfall at Epic is their unwillingness to decentralize from the Midwest.

    I have been working at Epic Systems Corporation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company's goals (provide good customer service, improve health care) are easy to get behind; they're generally acknowledged as the best in the health IT field; the pay is competitive; the atmosphere is casual; they seem to (or at least intend to) hire based on ability rather than quantity of resume buzzwords

    Cons

    You aren't likely to acquire trendy skills while working here - though some people do do web/mobile development; depending on your team (and/or customer, if you're in a customer-facing role), you might work long hours (I don't, and that obviously affects the rating I'm giving); the company has a rather controversial reputation, due to a number of rather outspoken former employees and competitors, and you'll frequently be asked about your job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a serious look at why turnover is so high, especially in IS.

    Good place to get your start, but that's about it.
