    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Excellent Growth opportunities, freedom to play by your strengths, great and smart colleagues and mid-west helping culture. Compensation is comparable to top high-tech companies in silicon valley

    Cons

    Work life balance can be an issue if you don't prioritize it, but management is concisouly trying to address the issue by hiring as fast as they can to maintain the exponential growth.

    Pros

    There are lots of young people straight out of college, so it's very welcoming and easy to get settled with new friends and contacts. Madison is an excellent city to live in, to boot. Epic has begun to spend a lot of time and energy on user experience and design, which is great news for both users and employees.

    Cons

    There are a lot of screens and applications to work with. The software is enterprise, meaning that it supports hundreds of businesses and thousands of users. Which means a lot of functionality and support. It also means that development and designing can take longer, because it's not easy to just try something, see how it goes, and adjust from there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue down the path you're on. Keep hiring UXDs, conducting lots of tests, and getting upper management involved. Perhaps even hire/promote a Senior UX Designer to coordinate all the designers and be a liaison between them and upper management.

    Only one location, and the snow isn't fantastic. The amount of time off you get isn't great either.

    Loosen up on time off.

    Pros

    Great pay, beautiful living, fun coworkers, and a mental challenge. Private company with ethical and quality standards / integrity. Inspiring female CEO who is nerdy but relatable.

    Cons

    Work up to 50 hr/week, plus at least a 30 min commute to live near downtown Madison. Requires great investment of effort to do well

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring. The work needs to be spread out among more of us to keep the daily schedule manageable.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Respects hard work and initiative. You have the opportunity to find your own niche and explore new areas.

    Cons

    You will work as much as you let yourself be worked, you need to be responsible for setting your own limits.

    Advice to Management

    Management structure may need to change as the company continues to grow. The flat structure works well if you have an immediate boss that is great.. if you are not so lucky, it can be hard to find your way.
