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

    Pros

    There is a ton of room for growth whether you want it or not. In many cases you can have multiple customers managing million dollar implementations.

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance. Madison is divided in half by Epic and the townies who typically don't interact. There are a lot of incestuous relationships at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for shifts in TL pairings without the TL having to leave the company.

    Excellent place to start a career. Probably dull to work at after 2-3 years unless you like the product/like Madison.

    I worked at Epic Systems Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Campus is amazingly well decorated. The internet is fast, the offices are comfortable, and the people are friendly (no need to be competitive, aggressive). Epic is migrating to using modern technologies, such as C#, ASP.NET, Javascript, and developing for modern platforms, such as Android and iOS. For the cost of living in the Midwest, the salary is amazing. Just look at the cars in the parking lot. Working here for 5 years will guarantee you upper-middle class in the Midwest. I worked here as an intern for a summer and loved it. In many ways, it is similar to Microsoft and Google, just smaller. Think of it as the Microsoft of the Prairie States.

    Cons

    If you are not interested in the products, work may be a little dull for you. You will be designing and implementing only software related to medical issues. In addition, there are a ton of meetings you will have to go to that may not interest you at all. If you are not interested in being a 'team leader' (first level manager), there is no room for career growth. You will be a software developer and that's it. Since it is a large, successful private company, it does promote a sort of cult-like atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys know how to please the customers. Keep winning.
