    Pros

    Flat corporate structure, performance-based compensation, ability to make a difference, friendly culture

    Cons

    It's a lot of individual work between you and your client(s). There wasn't a lot of team collaboration (within Epic).

    Pros

    The people are generally really smart, bright, and motivated
    The benefits are pretty great (although don't ask about paid maternity leave)
    My role (QA) has a lot of flexibility with where you actually spend your time

    Cons

    The legacy code base drives away some good developers
    Most of the projects are decided by Sales and the committed timelines are not always reasonable, so be ready to put in some nights and weekends
    You have to live in Wisconsin

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

    Pros

    Great campus. Decent product that is getting better and will only be more central to healthcare going forward. Company initiatives in data mining/research are forward-thinking.

    Cons

    Company culture has been outpaced by its own growth. Too many meetings infringe upon time that could be more productive, especially when managing teams of outside consultants that don't have the training they need to operate on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Actively think about how data is being used and accessed, the movement of information into cloud services, and the importance of ease of use and interoperability. Other companies have better and more streamlined software, but were too late to the EHR party. Marketshare for its own sake doesn't serve the bigger picture...

    I have been working at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) full-time

    Pros

    They take a lot of stress out of your life by allowing you to do a lot of tasks from work that you'd generally try to accomplish between your job and your house. Examples: Dry Cleaning dropoff, oil changes, healthy meals.
    Despite being worked hard, the culture includes a healthy amount of having fun.

    Cons

    I'm still in training, but I've heard often enough that they tend to work their people pretty hard, thus making it almost necessary for them to bring a few things to ease the work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Get more decorations in the Shed. Kind of dull in here compared to other places.
