    Pros

    - In the face of client downsizing, Epsilon has historically retained employees by account re-assignment instead of layoffs, if it's at all avoidable
    - Health insurance premiums (at least for employee only) are affordable
    - Generally work with very smart, skilled colleagues; inadequately skilled employees can be flushed out fairly quickly if there is attentive/motivated management.
    - Independent, dependable, self-motivated people will succeed in negotiating a career path.

    Cons

    If you are a recent college graduate with a marketing major (or non-CS / MIS) and you're interviewing at Epsilon for BSA positions, don't foster any delusions that you'll be helping provide input to clients about marketing strategy or creating creative marketing pieces. Most new associates feel like they've been misled after finding out that the job usually consists primarily of writing SQL queries, putting together repetitive reports, testing and documenting functionality in what the technical developers recently worked on, and occasionally being in direct communication with your client.

    - Frequent long hours
    - High Stress office environment
    - Unclear job descriptions and inconsistent paths to promotions (no formal company-wide documentation)

    Advice to Management

    An improved balance of partnership with clients should be nurtured so that account managers, project managers and clients services do not constantly feel pressure to accept shortened deadlines, scope creep, and to accept client-missed deadlines and bottlenecks without compensating increases in delivery timelines.

    As long as the roles of BSA and Account Manager are being combined into a single headcount, candidates with technical skills will be more satisfied with the role, and advance to satisfactory proficiency and effectiveness much earlier that those without any technical background. Both technical skills and client communication skill can be learned; but the actual job duties will typically be more in line with someone with technical abilities, which will ultimately lead to less BSA turnover.
