    I worked at Epocrates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open vacation time, ability to work from home. Great work life balance. Good health care packages

    Cons

    - Extremely poor management
    - Directionless, entire teams let go.
    - Nepotism from CEO.
    - No continuity.
    - Hire people that are not afraid of learning something new, rather than shutting programs down because they don't understand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might be a good idea to stop hiring your friends and fill upper management with talent. Have accountability at all levels

    I have been working at Epocrates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    None really. Used to be a decent place to work with some smart talented people. One product still profitable. May be a decent takeover target

    Cons

    Just when we thought things couldn't get any worse - it did. Poor compensation, no bonus, no direction, no 401(K) match. draconian management. Sales teams rule the roost. Morale in the toilet. Most of the top talent have fled. Rest are biding their time. Impossible to find anyone excited to work here anymore

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop! take a deep breath and have a phased roll-out of whatever it is you are doing. Maybe we can still recover
