    I have been working at Epitec full-time

    Pros

    Epitec is a great company to work for! You can really tell they really care about their employees. They are always making changes to make your work place better and make sure you enjoy your job!

    Cons

    There are no downsides to working with Epitec but rather some difficulties you run into with the job. This is a very fast paced industry so you have to move fast if you want to find the best candidates before your competitors get to them.

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

    Pros

    You can pick your start time (anywhere from 7:30-9:30 am), and you only have an 8 hour work day with a half hour paid lunch. There is free Starbucks coffee, and there always seems to be free food around. The culture is great - if you work hard, you get rewarded. They expect a lot out of you, but I really think it helps you grow professionally. I have been pleasantly surprised by management and how involved they all are, even executives. It's not uncommon to run into them grabbing your morning coffee or eating lunch. There are also a lot of events and holiday parties to help relieve the stress. It is a growing company, so there are a lot of opportunities for growth and/or promotion coming up.

    Cons

    There is some turnover, but if you are dedicated and work hard, you will do well.

    Advice to Management

    I love how involved and approachable management and executives are. The monthly meetings are great at keeping everyone focused, updated and motivated. I am very happy with my manager specifically - they have played a huge role in my growth as a professional and in advancing my career goals.

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

    Pros

    -Lots of opportunity in corporate IT for current students/recent CS grads to work on large and diverse software applications and quickly get real world experience as a developer.
    -Experience with all layers of full stack development without being isolated to one task; if there's an area of development you're not particularly strong in, you will be after working on their corporate IT team.
    -IT management is very open to exploring new technologies and suggestions from developers.
    -Encouraged to grow as a developer and given the tools to do so; lots of projects are innovative and challenging and you'll rarely (if ever) be doing the same repetitive type of work over and over.
    -Great team. I genuinely enjoy the company of all my team members and they're super pleasant people to work with.

    Cons

    -Occasionally project priorities shift and something you've put a lot of work into ends unused which can feel discouraging.
    -Agile development process sometimes moves too quickly and it can be stressful to balance producing results vs. preventing technical debt.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down the development process just a bit to give room for better prioritization and to boost software project quality.

    Pros

    What do I love about Epitec?

    They invested in me. I've seen my career grow from being a software developer to being a manager. And now that I am a manager and with Epitec's full support, I have the opportunity to do the same. Help younger software developers start and grow their career. That is why I love my job and I love Epitec.

    Cons

    Sometimes it will feel like you are pushed beyond your comfort zone but looking back, those moments actually helped me grow more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people.

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

    Pros

    When working for Epitec, you are a part of something much bigger than yourself or your role. Sales and operations work closely together to not only place people in the right positions, but to ensure employee satisfaction. Epitec does this through providing hands-on, dedicated and dependable resources to all employees from their first day onward. Another benefit that makes Epitec unique to the industry, is the many sponsored events arranged throughout the year to bring all employees together. It's clear that employee appreciation is a top-priority. I truly enjoy going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Under restraints of different client policies.

    Advice to Management

    Continue perusing flexibility and dedication as a quality in all employees.
