    I worked at Epocrates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall I worked with some really good people in various departments. The product had historical strength in ROI and engagement stats and loyalty among users. I believe there were good people with good intentions.

    Cons

    The ever changing product development delayed many potential upgrades and opportunities to sell services for Pharma content. There is a tipping point where you can wait too long for that surge, while other companies continue to develop/ test and fail fast and expand.

    Advice to Management

    This is hard- as a publicly traded company you can't always openly share all of the thoughts on the ultimate direction for products and product development. I believe Athenahealth will be successful in it's mission, and Epocrates can support that through not advertising to Pharma and providing free clinical benefit to HCP's. Once the plan is identified either way- bring in the right folks to manage through the process that share the passion and vision.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Epocrates.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy. I applied through an agency and was called in for an interview 3 days later. I was greet by the PMP first and given a run down of the process, Another employee greeted me after and asked a few questions pertaining to multitasking and basic web development. Lastly I was greeted by a third employee and given a technical test on the spot with only about 20 minutes to complete. Afterwards I was told I did a wonderful job.
