Pros

Our core mission and so many big hearted co-workers.

Cons

Poor middle/lower management (allowed to stay in position way too long), upper management and HR support lower management without regard for employees, pay based on longevity and not merit resulting in very low pay raises. Relatively no chance for advancement, promotions given to "yes" people in place of the much more qualified, resulting in the poor management cycle. Behind on the tech side of business. Benefits not what they used to be.

Advice to Management

Work on the quality of your management. Come up to speed in the IT Dept and reward your faithful hard workers. More system wide transparent/open communication.

    Epic HIT is a depressing and stressful Team to work on

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Most co-workers are doing the best they can

    Cons

    Management is incompetent and not up to the challenge of implementing and IT solution. They seem to be un-knowledgeable about Software development. Quality of missing and staff is extremely over worked! Good managers are terminated or moved to other areas as the currently management does not want to look bad.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the plethora of PMs, Managers, Directors that have no clue of what they are doing. Epic has an assessment test. Make them take it!!!

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Like 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 Management

    Before 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.
