Pros

The campus is very nice and the food is great/inexpensive. There is also a culture of helping each other and having fun. They do great things there and the company is the top in the industry.

Cons

Unfortunately, there is a culture here of working long hours and combined with travel depending on your role, this can burn some people out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lighten the workload a little. You can definitely afford it, and this can lead to a higher retention rate.

    Pros

    Epic is privately owned, so any initiatives or direction-setting is in the interest of our customers and their patients, not shareholders. Day-to-day work is extremely dynamic. Your primary responsibility is the success of your customer, but aside from that, you'll have opportunities to get involved in areas of your interest - process improvement, training, HR, product improvement and design, workflow design and recommendations, staff management, the list goes on. You'll have lots of autonomy and ownership of projects early on in your career. You'll work with the best healthcare organizations in the US and internationally. Epic's hiring processes are rigorous, so you'll be working with the best and brightest talent. The corporate culture is awesome - wear whatever you want and work in an office in one of the most unique and impressive campuses in existence. Great benefits. Earn month-long sabbaticals every 5 years.

    Cons

    Work hours and travel can be demanding (50-60 hours per week, 25-75% travel). Learning curve can be very steep, especially if you have a limited/no background in healthcare. No traditional corporate heirarchy or titles - if you are looking to climb a corporate ladder, its not the company for you.

    Pros

    Nice campus,
    City is beautiful
    Big company, plenty chances to transfer within same company

    Cons

    Long hours. I was asked to work for 45 hours per week during interview, but actually I worked about 60 hours per week to meet management's expectations
    Compensation does not match those long hours
    No work life balance
    Software was developed with a programming language that nobody really heard about it. No good for career path
    Weird training system
    Not nice on immigrant-related issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more respect to employees.
