Former Employee - Senior Implementation Specialist

I worked at Meditech full-time

Pros

Good management, travel, learn a ton, flexible with family life, good health insurance

Cons

Strict 8 hour days - can’t sign out 15 minutes early without making up the time (salaried), lower compensation compared to competitors in the area

Current Employee - Software Developer

I have been working at Epic full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Almost everyone I work with is very talented, friendly, and eager to help, across all roles: SD, QA, Training, HR, TS, IS, etc. The campus COVID-19 precautions are extraordinary. It was a very clean... and great campus pre-COVID. But to bring everyone back to campus with maximum safety, they've made a number of changes recently, including giving EVERYONE who wants a solo office a solo office. To achieve this, they did have to do some construction to convert single offices into two rather small offices. I was already on a team & role that had solo offices as long as a window wasn't required. That's a great perk as far as concentrating on code goes. Our culinary team is fantastic. It's the most healthy I've ever eaten in my life. For COVID-19 they've switched to providing everything in to go containers and payment online. I find the work challenging and fun. As a software developer, you will have opportunities to collaborate with customers on enhancements and learn a lot about an industry that you probably don't know a lot about before Epic.

Cons

For me, the number one con right now is that several hundred employees are quite upset about Epic's plan to have almost all employees working on site within a few weeks. These employees feel that any... amount of added risk from WFW compared to WFH (Work from Home) is not acceptable. Epic's leadership has decided that (a) working on-site produces higher quality software more quickly and (b) there isn't any future time period in sight where it would be viewed as completely safe to cease WFH. I understand the angry employee's perspective, but I also disagree and think the anonymous complaints aren't realistic in acknowledging that it's much easier to work on site. A simple example is masked-up and working with one or two developers on a white board. This is already happening for those of us who've been WFW for a couple months now. The other thing that isn't being acknowledged is that Epic's campus is a great example of how to safely open up facilities with a large amount of people. I don't want to get COVID-19 and I don't want other people to contract the disease either. But I've been on campus with 3000+ coworkers for a couple months and coworkers are being courteous and following safety procedures. 10,000 employees doing the same logically won't make a difference when we can see how the rest of the county, state, and country are returning to more and more in-person activities. If you don't want to work on site as described, then definitely look elsewhere for work. As far as the dozens and dozens of negative reviews on here, I'd take into consideration how angry they seem to be. It's true leadership hasn't bent 100% to their demands. But I'm personally glad leadership hasn't. Having a few hundred anonymous coworkers whipped up in a frenzy with you doesn't make you "right". Nor does having a billion dollars. Nobody knows for sure who's "right" and there's a lot of disagreement.

Advice to Management

Stay the course and keep going how you have been. There are a lot of happy employees (I work with them every day on campus). I can't see much that can be done about the negative news stories. It is... what it is. I appreciate all that you've done to adapt the campus and try to accommodate all employees (e.g. single offices). It continues to be a great place to work. I was bummed when the negative press came out. One thing that surprised me was family members saw the CBS story and didn't think it was particularly bad :)
