Pros

You're surrounded by young, bright people who are all pretty much in the same boat as you if you're coming out of college. It's a bright and shiny place with lots of perks, good salary, and you build useful, marketable skills.

Cons

The travel can be rough, you're likely to burn out in the first couple years, and you feel like you're a part of a huge company with team leads that play favorites. If you don't suck up and stand out in the beginning, it's very hard to climb your way to the top.

Advice to Management

Give less team members to TLs and make sure people are getting enough attention. Recognize when people are stressed out and fairly distribute work.

    Decent job for recent grads, but not a place for a long-term career

    Pros

    -Good pay for recent grads. I would even say that most people here start out overpaid, given their lack of real marketable skills. You don't need any technical skills to be hired for most positions. -Great food and casual work environment. -If you are a recent grad and have no idea what you want to do with your career, don't worry. You're in the same boat as 99% of the other new hires.

    Cons

    -Lack of career development opportunities. -If you don't like programming, the work you do will be extremely boring. Regardless of position, chances are that most of your work will involve staring at either code/text or navigating the horrible Epic UI. There's a reason Epic invests so much time and money in the campus - to try to retain employees despite the fact that the actual work here is dull and uninspiring. -Epic will try to convince you that you are special and that they only hire the best of the best. If I recall correctly, they actually say that they only give offers to a fraction of a percent of applicants, a statistic that I'm highly skeptical about. Most people here are intelligent but untalented, yet Epic will make it sound as if it is on par with the likes of Google, Amazon, etc. -If you view Epic a sort of stepping stone towards something else, you'll be disappointed. Most tools used here are internal or obscure, meaning you won't gain any of the technical skills that other top companies desire. -I'm not sure if it's Epic or just the nature of the EMR industry, but there is very little innovation in the software.
