I have been working at Epocrates

Pros

Lots of smart people who are passionate about the company and what they do. Epocrates is the most popular handheld app with medical professionals and most employees are priding themselves that they help doctors help patients.

Cons

In the past 2 years the fortunes have changes for the company. The recent bet on EHR system have not materialized, as a result the company is changing its course which is causing distress to some employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put the company back on track. Find a way to motivate employees and make them to be proud working at Epocrates.

    I worked at Epocrates

    Pros

    Old timers that stay at the company because they are afraid to leave -- they're awesome folks with a wealth of knowledge and (mostly) great personalities.

    Cons

    "Grin screwing" type of mentality of most management and up. Software engineers are treated like mercenaries: "Do what we tell you 9-5, and don't talk back." Promotions, career development, is not in management's vocabulary. No transparency whatsoever. Pay is not great. Camaraderie at work is practically nonexistent. People are fed blatant BS at all-hands. Favoritism and arrogance from management are omnipresent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct an anonymous survey where people rate their managers and let go the ones that don't receive a high vote. Only need to make sure that it's anonymous, otherwise your last good people will be fired sooner rather than later.
