I have been working at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) full-time (More than 3 years)
Every day I face interesting and challenging work. While the pace is demanding, I have never been expected to take on more than I can manage. I have the power to work to change things I do not like, and the culture is open to suggestions.
If you are unable to say "no", then you will struggle at Epic. Having a successful career here relies on good communication skills.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin).
Overall the interview process was great compared to most other companies. A human resources representative was in contact with me a day after putting in the online application and within the week I had a phone interview with a developer and the online technical skills assessment.
The phone interview was 30-45 minutes and consisted of questions about my professional experience and some softball technical questions on the basics of arrays vs linked lists. The online assessment was much more rigorous. There were three sections: The first was a "speed test" that asked 10 easy math/logic questions--the catch is you have to answer all of them in 2 minutes! I was able to get through about 8 of them before I ran out of time. The second part was a "fake language" section in which the questions describe a made up programming language that didn't work like any language I've ever used. This was the easiest section in my opinion and really was more like reading comprehension.
The third section was a real programming assessment and was the most difficult by far. There were four challenges in total. The first one was pretty easy, but the rest were pretty challenging including one that involved dynamic programming. Ultimately, I think I came up with solutions that were more or less correct; the real challenge here is that you're not allowed to use google to look up any sort of syntax or library function behavior. I think I, like many other developers, tend to use google as a crutch and don't know languages as completely as we should. At the very least it was a wake up call to develop a more comprehensive knowledge of the languages I use.
Two weeks after the technical skills assessment, I received an email saying that they decided not to continue with the interview process.
