Epocal is a very exciting place to work, filled with opportunities; however stress and long hours are common.

    I worked at Epocal full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very hard to find any positivity in such a negative workplace environment.

    Cons

    Superiors are extremely narcissistic, entitled, unprofessional, and with superiority complex. Constantly accosting employees, micro-managing, belittling, borderline verbally abusive. It makes the workplace environment seems like boot camp but without the organisation as such.
    This workplace's atmosphere is way more stressful than it is worth in compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Alere should monitor this unprofessionalism in their production supervisions, otherwise Epocal will have a much higher turnover rate of employees than they are experiencing at the moment.
    Suggestion to get proper management training, professional communication skills, and interpersonal skills.
    Learn to smile and be kind.

    I have been working at Epocal full-time

    Pros

    The technology is interesting and there are some nice people there.

    Cons

    Too much yelling. The company only has one speed, overdrive and the only way they know to motivate is to push harder. The entire staff is demoralized and demotivated. I know people were hopeful that things (i.e. management) would change with the new owners, but now that that hasn't happened everyone I know is sending out resumes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to smile and be kind.
