    I have been working at EPG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    EPG has an excellent work environment. It can be quiet at times but people are positive and very nice. The management cares about its employees and is interest in their personal wellbeing. They have excellent benefits and they reward hard work.

    Cons

    Recently had to let employees go due to slow year which is never fun. Work can be slow at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay involved with your employees. It’s shows you care.

    I worked at EPG full-time

    Pros

    As long as you keep finding yourself work and the company gets the profit then you're allowed to keep working there.

    Cons

    Once management stops profiting off you, you're politely excused. So large turnover rate for the positions management doesn't already fill.

    I worked at EPG full-time

    Pros

    There are a diversity of project types.

    Cons

    Management seems under trained in business development. Junior staff were called on to seek new jobs, which is not a common request.
    Staff seem disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure that funding is in place before hiring on additional staff. Do not rely on junior staff to bring in additional projects.

    I worked at EPG full-time

    Pros

    If you are a self starter who does not mind routinely being yelled at. there is opportunity for travel.

    Cons

    The attitude and tone of the company leadership makes EPG an uncomfortable workplace environment. Leadership tends to talk down to employees, make inappropriate comments, and insult their employees. I would not recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    When I worked here I felt very uncomfortable. I felt that the attitude and the way in which employees are treated made this job not for me. however, more concerning, and something that should be addressed, are the inappropriate comments that ranged from racist to sexist to anti-Semitic. If those sorts of comments continue it will drive away more employees and potentially result in a lawsuit someday.

    I worked at EPG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation package, flexible work scheduling, company events at reduced prices, multiple locations, plenty of work, friendly coworkers, reasonable accommodations in office setting.

    Cons

    Long work weeks, sometimes too much work and too few people to get it all done. No compensatory or flex time accruals.

    Pros

    Dynamic projects
    Lots of senior staff to learn from
    Opportunities to conduct tasks that wouldn't be offered at a larger firm.

    Cons

    HQ is hectic
    Satellite offices are "on their own" primarily.

    Pros

    EPG hires talented people. Unfortunately they are cut-throat and fire employees left and right. Or they do not provide any basic incentives to retain these talented people.

    Cons

    45-50 hours per week required (No straight time, No overtime, No Banking of Hours, No bonuses)
    Salary only. No hourly jobs.
    Required travel and weekend work with little or no warning
    Terrible time off policy
    No sick time allotted
    Socially awkward and smug upper-management
    Inexperienced/underqualified middle-management
    Most employees are just faking-it-until-they-make-it
    Weird "team-bonding" activities that further aleinate employees (much like the TV show "The Office")
    Noisy, distracting cubicle setting
    Salaries below industry standards
    Infrequent raises
    Questionable environmental ethics
    Loophole and mitigation specialists
    EPG = Every Project Guaranteed

    Advice to Management

    Treat your personnel more like humans (with families and social lives) rather than livestock.

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

    Pros

    Most of the employees are great people and really care about their roes and their co-workers. Insurance benefits were pretty good for a small business. Other benefits were comperable.

    Cons

    There were two major challenges working here. Little to no room at all for advancement and the principals were very difficult to work for. Many good employees left because they just got tired on the nonsense. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. One principal might tell you to do one thing, and then another may tell you to do another. If you can "go with the flow" it's not too difficult. I won't get into the ethics of the principals, but I'm happy I've moved on.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is key. Telling your employees one thing in regards to the business, when they see otherwise, isn't a good way to retain quality employees.

    Pros

    Honestly I cant think of any Pros other than it was a job for three years. Im just glad I'm longer working there.

    Cons

    No training. No sense of team everyone out for themselves. No leadership. No advancement opportunities. No diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Ignorance and arrogance are a dangerous combination. Good luck you'll need it.

    Pros

    The management did train you well. And they had direct deposit.

    Cons

    All of the leads are old, and when I say old I mean...when you call a lead and the gate-keeper says " What? that person has been dead for the last ten years! " then hangs up on you. Also they keep giving you the same exact leads day after day!! It seemed that employees were rewarded for lying to the business owners. Really unethical practices!! DON'T use your real name if you want to ever be in sales in the future, I would cringe thinking what it would be like for the outside sales person when they walked into an appointment.

    Advice to Management

    Be on the up and up!! The outside sales people will stand a better chance!

    This review is completely fabricated and not accurate. We do not employ sales agents - sounds like this review is for the wrong company entirely. - EPG
