    Pros

    Good location and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid, and most of all under-appreciated. Promotions are given out based on who you know, not how hard you work or how great of a job you're doing.

    The flow of communication has improved over the past few years.

    It can be difficult to advance your skill set if your client base is limited (doesn't engage outside of standard email best practices or has limited budget).

    Employee are a commodity

    Health insurance is bad and even after huge deductible, in-network, it only covers 80% - major illness could bankrupt me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to best leverage employees vs trying to make them cheaper

    Pros

    The ADS mothership is a financially stable company which is able to support Epsilon's initiatives as required. There are some truly interesting problems to solve, and puzzles to sort out, which makes the work rewarding.

    Cons

    Workload to staff ratio lacks balance, making work/life balance nearly impossible. There are many directors at the company who perform as managers, and many VP's who perform as directors. There are a lot of floating agendas which either trivializes the immediate work, delays the immediate work, or negatively impacts the quality of the work.

    Pros

    Lots of talented individuals
    Excellent technology
    Constantly evolving organization
    Opportunities to advance

    Cons

    (see Pros above) - if you are average or below then you won't stand out here and won't get promoted or assigned to the latest/greatest technology.
    Fast pace and technology can lead to burnout if not careful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep landing accounts and we will keep delivering! Glad to see additional profit sharing in December for those not already on bonus program. So many improvements in benefits in the last 3 years and they are greatly increasing retention of talented staff.

    Current Employee - Lead Interactive Developer in Blue Ash, OH

    Pros

    Depending on who is your immediate manager, it can be a great place to work. You can have freedom in technologies you use and your voice will be heard. You will be appreciated greatly if you do a good job. Great office location and environment. People are very friendly. You get a free gym membership.Most importantly they are growing fast and it helps to be part of a rapidly growing company. Also if you do a good job you can get promoted without typical loops and hoops of big corps. Great work life balance depending on the phase of the project and your role in it.

    Cons

    They are not good in raises and merit increase rate. You have to be pushy in order to a get a raise or promotion. They focus too much on being Advertising Agency than being a Software Company, hence technology people would feel left out of company's focus sometimes. But that being said you would still be heard and can put influence in the corp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more generous in compensation because people get really discouraged when they see the raise rates. Also please dont let technology people like developers, designers, and DB team, feel left out of the vision of the company.

    Cons

    -Unstable in recent years
    -Culture is poor, there are a lot of pointing fingers and not enough accountability - especially among Director and VP level.
    -Development leaders overvalue themselves and their team. Lots of great candidates don't make the screening process because the team is constantly looking for the next better thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some accountability.
