Great people and provider organizations, but Epic HIT project teams are mired in confusion and fear

Epic Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Providence Health Systems

ProsGreat people up and down the ladder
Fairly good benefits
Flexible work schedule

ConsLike most very large organizations heavy on bureacratic structures

Constant fear of layoffs

Constant reorganization of management

At least with the Epic project, no clear direction given to professional staff
If you have never worked for an Epic project make sure you are explained the NCA that Providence (and all healthcare systems) forced to sign by Epic. The employee is not made aware of the contract, nor asked to sign any agreement, but can be held to Epic's NCA with other client provider groups and consulting firms, basically blocking you from career opportunites or moving from a "bad fit". This can effectively end your HIT career. Beware and make an informed decision before accepting a position with the Epic project.

Advice to Senior ManagementBefore hiring new employees to Epic project explain the realities of the NCA so employees can make informed decision to accept employment. We are healthcare IT professionals and deserve the same ethical and professional courtesy afforded other healthcare professionals.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
