Pros
Cons
  • Used to be a place where you might get paid a bit less than competitors but had great work life balance in exchange (in 51 reviews)

  • There also seemed to be a lot of arbitrary constraining decisions from upper management that adversely impacted delivery time and final product quality (in 28 reviews)

    I have been working at Epsilon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most accounts support the latest technology and refresh hardware periodically. Great place to work for someone interested in performance & tuning of databases or processes. Opportunity to work on Oracle Exadata, RAC, Flash-based technology, etc. Lots of other high-skilled employees to draw and learn from.

    Cons

    Still have some accounts with older technology.
    If you are average or below average then you most likely won't last long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the flow of new accounts coming.
