I have been working at Epsilon full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Many tallented people used to work there. Epsilon was a place where you could learn many technologies all at once... some can see this a a con though.

Cons

The IT department is run by a Despotism type structure (defined as "the exercise of absolute power, esp. in a cruel and oppressive way"), and is in the throes of a full collapse. Be very wary of accepting on a position within IT (Information Technology.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice would not be heard seeing as its a Despotism-type

    I have been working at Epsilon full-time (more than a 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

    I have been working at Epsilon full-time (more than a 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.
