    I have been working at EPIC Systems (Egypt) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is quite high for entry level positions. Expectation that employees will work hard/long hours. No overtime pay. Fairly easy to move up what little corporate ladder there is.

    Cons

    Assumed that employees with work hard. Little opportunity for a social life. You have to move to Madison Wisconsin.

    Advice to Management

    Company seems to be growing quickly and they're hiring a lot of new employees, though this may be because employees leave shortly after being hired.

    Cons

    Middle of nowhere Wisconsin.

    Pros

    The money is okay, Madison is nice, it's a good first job

    Cons

    40 hours per week is apparently not enough, no overtime compensation, nearby housing is increasing in price because there is too much demand, people keep leaving (or being forced to leave)

    I have been working at EPIC Systems (Egypt) full-time

    Pros

    The casual atmosphere is amazing with individual or paired offices, themed buildings, and the culinary team is great. You also feel very secure in your job since you get weekly feedback from your boss.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not considered.You're expected to reach above and beyond, and that means working long hours

    Advice to Management

    Shape the culture to value balance in work, and you might not have so many people leaving every year. Even if the claim that our retention rate is similar to other tech companies is true, it sure doesn't feel like it when you're working there.
