    I have been working at Epocrates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation and the ability to work form home. Very generous benefits and great comp plans. Just got taken over by Athenahealth so it could be a good thing.

    Cons

    Everyone is looking over their shoulder. Most of the managers are control freaks and there is no transparency what so ever. No new products for a while so revenue is sliding. 2013 has brought no new direction no new incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the control freaks because the talent is leaving.....

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very strong affinity with users, who love the core product.

    Cons

    Incompetent management throughout its history. Weak, politicized, turf-centric. Organizational units run like mini-kingdoms: isolated and competitive with each other. In the absence of leadership from management, individuals with strong personalities effectively dominate, creating a polarized, unpleasant work atmosphere. For a time it seemed these problems were being addressed, but, new senior management removed the reformers and returned to the previous chaos, enabling in the process some of the most incompetent and dishonest employed people you'll ever encounter.

    Advice to Management

    Quit while you're behind.
