    I have been working at Epic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Epic over 10 years. What gets me to work each day is that I have a lot of variety and autonomy. My career has changed enough that I've never been bored - there's always been a new challenge. I get lots of feedback and validation and feel valued by my manager, coworkers and company. I feel that my hard work and success are recognized as evidenced in my compensation and access to opportunities. Recent changes (ability to purchase stock, paid parental leave) show a vested interest in retaining experienced employees. I expect to stay at Epic for at least the next several years.

    Cons

    I would like to continue to see more flexibility with schedules such as more options to work from home at least part-time. I would also like to see more organization around international relocation and for these assignments to be more appealing to more experienced staff.

    Pros

    Exceptional first job out of college. I can't imagine a place where as an entry-level employee, you're given as much autonomy, compensation, and career opportunities. For someone interested in pursuing a career in healthcare technology, there's no better place to be.

    Cons

    When I was there (2010-2014), the median age felt like it was mid-twenties. While this was fun from a social perspective, it also meant that your immediate managers were likely only a year or two older than you. With that comes immaturity and lack of disciplined leadership. That said, since the company has continued to age, I would imagine that this has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace your intrapreneurs. There are hundreds of high potential go-getters within your walls. Don't be afraid to let them free to create new and innovative solutions.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, top-tier benefits, keep your travel rewards, amazing campus, better food, company culture

    Cons

    A lot is expected out of you. Your to-do list will never be at zero, and you'll work longer hours than a typical 9-to-5. If you're an efficient person, you'll probably work 50 hours a week on average.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility with working from home would be nice

    I worked at Epic (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hard working, intelligent people committed to the mission at hand. GREAT food in the cafeteria. Cool campus.

    Cons

    High turnover rate, because they hire a ton of people out of college assuming many will drop. Lots of travel, lots of hours. Don't give a damn about workers' rights.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the part of the contract that says employees can't enter into collective action suits for you underpaying them for overtime hours. Also, give more generous maternity/paternity leave.

    Pros

    Good starting place for new grads looking for decent salary and a campus-like atmosphere. Gain project management experience. Get Epic certified.
