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

    Pros

    Open vacation time, ability to work from home. Great work life balance. Good health care packages

    Cons

    - Extremely poor management
    - Directionless, entire teams let go.
    - Nepotism from CEO.
    - No continuity.
    - Hire people that are not afraid of learning something new, rather than shutting programs down because they don't understand.

    Advice to Management

    Might be a good idea to stop hiring your friends and fill upper management with talent. Have accountability at all levels

    Pros

    Pays well, benefits are great. Company culture used to be great. Co-operation among departments that don't traditionally communicate in other companies.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Blatant favoritism to certain employees. C level managers came and went very rapidly in the last 3 years. No checks and balances-bad HR leader, bad senior level management and nowhere to let any one know of the bad leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Someone should be checking the performance of VPs and asking their direct reports to evaluate them on a regular basis. HR should be a place employees can feel comfortable taking their work issues to rather than being punished for reporting negligence and incompetence.
