Pros

Opportunity to work on-site at big pharma client.
Decent salary until you divide it by the number of hours you are working.
Decent vacation benefit, but difficult to use because of work load.

Cons

Poor leadership, Peter Principle in action. just because you can manage tasks does not mean you can manage staff and a large account.
Hire people young and cheap, then work them until they burn out.
No respect for staff and their personal time. Workload requires at least 50+ hours per week.
Management by exception (designed to catch you doing things wrong). Not enough staff to handle the client work load.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to better manage the client and their expectations. Stop taking on work that you cannot support with the current staff.
Also, probably not a coincidence that the good reviews on this site are mostly from Director level staff at Epsilon

    Pros

    Hire Freshers at minimal salary

    Cons

    epsilon Only thinks about its own profit , upper management is not ready to invest neither in technology nor in employees.
    10-12 hours of work Daily

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think outside of your own pocket and retain good employees.

    Current Employee - Technical Manager in Cincinnati, OH

    Pros

    Very easy to be involved; culture promotes learning and development. If you're excited about what you do, they take notice and will give you more responsibility.

    Cons

    Sometimes they are too results-focused and if you're not careful, you can get yourself into a situation where it's difficult for you to meet their expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Epsilon's brand to potential hires is weak - we need to get more pro-active about telling job-seekers about what we do and what our core values are.
