I worked at Epocrates full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The people were great to work with, and benefits were excellent.

Cons

No collaboration between departments and no support from marketing. Extremely micro-managed with little lattitude to get deals done without lengthy approval process. Define roles of the support staff as many times accounts were confused by multiple calls.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the sales department some freedom to innovate and sell a great product.

    Pros

    We all enjoy working hard for possible 2015 Athenahealth bonus to pay for our families future medical and dental needs.

    Cons

    Entire company demoted by Athenahealth, yet they boast about promoting their own to run Epocrates into the ground while pretending to listen and care. Ruthless liars!!! Takes balls for a CEO to brag about $$$, buying a plane, mountain resort, mall property and fixing health care" while being cheap to deny minimal benefits for his own employees. Cheap!

    Farewell Durham!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to "no one ever heard of AthenaHell in Water Clown, MA and acquired a real people's company with a leading brand name you could only buy!"
    Coach one-way trip for your puppet COO, clueless VP ENG and "who? and where? is our"
    CEO back to Boston. J Bush...Silicon Valley will be the start of your downfall.

    Pros

    great brand awareness in healthcare space. people were fun to work with. decent comp & benefits. culture was fun to work in until management changes took place in 2012.

    Cons

    management have their heads in 'dark spaces.' total incompetence at exec management level. brought in people who were not qualified for their roles and ruined a really good culture. athenahealth is in the process of destroying a fabulous brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck, you are gonna need it. get rid of the absolutely useless employees- all that's left now.... its a drag working around a lot of inept talent.
