I have been working at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The campus is very nice and the food is great/inexpensive. There is also a culture of helping each other and having fun. They do great things there and the company is the top in the industry.

Cons

Unfortunately, there is a culture here of working long hours and combined with travel depending on your role, this can burn some people out.

Advice to Management

Lighten the workload a little. You can definitely afford it, and this can lead to a higher retention rate.

    Pros

    Epic is privately owned, so any initiatives or direction-setting is in the interest of our customers and their patients, not shareholders. Day-to-day work is extremely dynamic. Your primary responsibility is the success of your customer, but aside from that, you'll have opportunities to get involved in areas of your interest - process improvement, training, HR, product improvement and design, workflow design and recommendations, staff management, the list goes on. You'll have lots of autonomy and ownership of projects early on in your career. You'll work with the best healthcare organizations in the US and internationally. Epic's hiring processes are rigorous, so you'll be working with the best and brightest talent. The corporate culture is awesome - wear whatever you want and work in an office in one of the most unique and impressive campuses in existence. Great benefits. Earn month-long sabbaticals every 5 years.

    Cons

    Work hours and travel can be demanding (50-60 hours per week, 25-75% travel). Learning curve can be very steep, especially if you have a limited/no background in healthcare. No traditional corporate heirarchy or titles - if you are looking to climb a corporate ladder, its not the company for you.

    I worked at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -The company offers good pay for recent grads and opportunities to learn the ins and outs of management and consulting.
    -The campus is beautiful and the food is top-notch.

    Cons

    -There is no sense of work-life balance. While I was there the conversation revolved around "work-life integration." Sound fishy? Well it is.
    -The management structure is geared towards a small business, which they are no longer. Being rated against other hires from your starting month breeds competition that is unhealthy for a trusting workplace.
    -If you happen to get hooked up with a bad AM, you'll just have to suffer through it for 2 years until your install is finished.
    -Travel is pitched as around 50% a month but to be successful here you are pushed above 75% a month.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you value them beyond just compensation. Learn to let your customers fail instead of using "expendable" recent grads to cover up their ineptitude.
