Current Employee - Director in Wakefield, MA
Current Employee - Director in Wakefield, MA

I have been working at Epsilon full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Clear direction, good support from parent company (Alliance Data)
Interesting market segment - improved marketing through data and analytics.
Talented engineers, strong technical folks

Cons

Very political senior management team, poor organizational values.
Fiefdoms across the organization, lots off duplication of effort and little collaboration.
Technology platform has fallen behind the competition

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't make political hiring and firing decisions. Treat people fairly, create a positive work environment, focus on enabling the talented staff you have rather than catering to the whims of some new senior management with poor values.

    Great people work here, but the organization itself isn't focused on retention or training so there's a high turnover

    Current Employee - Project Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Epsilon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    some really awesome coworkers, interesting projects, nice perks like free lunch on friday and tons of snacks and drinks. nice office location, relatively flexible hours depending on work load

    Cons

    lots of large multi-year projects, so not much variation if you're on one of those. no focus on onboarding, training or retention. no evaluation process for higher-ups - only self evaluation. very strict annual bonus/raise policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on keeping the people you have rather than just hiring new people. Create some sort of anonymous evaluation process for managers.

    Former Employee - Senior Developer in Irving, TX
    Former Employee - Senior Developer in Irving, TX

    I worked at Epsilon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people; good benefits; flexible time; average pay

    Cons

    Overpromises to clients results in teams putting in vast amounts of overtime to try to deliver. Usually results in a disaster that has to be maintained at great effort (more overtime).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling customers you can do a six-month project in two months.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
