Former Employee - Director in Wakefield, MA

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

Pros

*There are some really smart people who are great to work with.
*A lot of flexibility in schedule and telecommuting isn't an issue (depending somewhat on your direct supervisor)
*the work is challenging, and in most cases there is a lot of collaboration across project teams and business groups

Cons

*almost impossible to change career paths within the organization
*significant cultural differences between US offices which can result in disparate work ethics and one group feeling that they pick up the slack for another
*terrible health insurance
*disconnect between what is sold and what really needs to be delivered, which results in very long hours for the project team
*little regard for the institutional knowledge of long-time employees. Very much a "what have you done for me lately" environment, in which people get let go regardless of their contribution, to meet a bottom line financial promise. Then new, less expensive replacements are brought in.
*if you're not a favorite of senior management, forget about advancing
*always willing to push a product to market before it is ready, and usually before a support model is in place.
*very focused on the bottom line and short-sighted in building loyalty among employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop telling employees how valuable they are and show them - through career opportunities, better recognition, and through respecting their ideas, their commitment, and their potential. Sr management likes to brag about how great the employees are, but the bulk of the people working there feel extremely undervalued. Walk down a hall of cubicles/offices and more than half of the people there are truly miserable.

    I have been working at Epsilon full-time

    Pros

    Great technical team. Good cafeteria. Better than average benefits package. Growing.

    Cons

    Below average salary, no bonuses, no profit sharing, no stock options, no incentives of any kind for people below the director level to out perform, just the expectation that everyone will. Poor work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a bonus and incentive plan for worker bees. Let technical people drive technical decisions. Adopt new technology and new ways of leveraging existing technology instead of rehashing the same old solution.
