People are great....The expectations are not

I joined epic making 80k a year. This sounds great, and like a solid $40 an hour coming out of college. But, in reality, I am often working 50+ hour weeks and the wage becomes not so competitive. I will say I generally like the people I work with.

You will need to fight for work/life balance

Epic has always been famous for pushing people beyond their limit. I left several years ago, so maybe this is less true today than in the past. There was never any emphasis on work/life balance or self-care. There was plenty of emphasis on Herculean effort. Pushing people is good to a point, but quickly becomes unhealthy. If you know this going in, have a proactive plan for dealing with it, and are willing to say 'no' occasionally, you will be okay.The work itself was amazing. Once in a lifetime opportunity. Coworkers are amazing and unbelievably smart.I hear some complaints that parts of the stack are antiquated or little-used in industry; the more experience you have, the less this matters. So much of what you do/learn is transferrable (and this piece might not be obvious until you find yourself killing it in your next gig, and people are like, 'where'd this guy come from?!?').It's been several years since I left; at that time we were feeling growing pains, and were really behind in growing new managers. And we were having to formalize a lot of our processes, which while necessary, felt really restrictive, and greatly reduced our ability to develop new features.

优点

Amazing coworkers, meaningful work, lots of opportunity

缺点

Work/life balance; no #WFH option?

Great comp, benefits, advancement - at a price.

Epic pays its employees well and offers fair/above average health benefits and advancement opportunities at the cost of employee mental health, work/life balance, and flexibility. Upper management and CEO completely inflexible and inconsiderate to constant feedback during pandemic to increase WFH flexibility and expanding employee resources to provide accommodations for health of familial circumstances. Culture is very toxic, promoting overwork without compensation changes or reduction of other responsibilities. It is a shame because employees are generally sharp and humble people, and the mission of the company is a good one. If you value remote work flexibility, work/life balance, and a management structure that enacts change + advocates for the well being of its employees, Epic is not the right fit for you.

Limited room for growth and insane onboarding

One thing about Epic that people should know going in, especially young professionals hoping to make friends at work, is that Epic makes it really hard to do so by absolutely overloading you during the onboarding process. In addition, once you actually have time to chat with people, work becomes your top priority.You are expected to log time down to the 15 minute interval, and lunch does not count towards your minimum 8 hours a day. The expectation is that you put more than 40 hours a week into work. It is clear that some positions at the company are viewed as more important than others (this is reflected in your pay). The interview process was a convoluted mess, and I was switched into a role with significantly lower pay near the end of the process.With the average tenure of employees only being around 3 years, it makes sense that I just got here and I am already thinking of leaving. If people can't see a future there for more than 3 years, then there probably isn't a future for me here either.

Software Developer Intern

The internship is done in three stages, Design, Development, and Testing (somewhat). The duration of these is split up into 3-4 weeks periods that all interns normally hit.

Pretty terrible management!

Pay is good, everything else is terrible. Everyone works overtime. I think the management is greedy with these huge piles of money they're making and , it seems, not giving much of anything back to the community!

Any other big tech company.

You get what you’d expect from a constantly growing 12000+ employee company in tech. Epic will give you:1) A decent (QM) to good (TS, IS, SD) salary2) Some experience for your resume right out of college3) Stability, and good benefitsBut they will also:1) Expect you to be available for beyond standard hours pretty consistently2) Give no flexibility on being in the office because they spend so much money building all these offices so why would they give WFH to long-standing (or any) employees?3) Refuse to deal with a significant turnover rate issue which stresses current employees to the max4) Not give many opportunities for significant advancement aside from becoming a Team Lead or switching teams/rolesUltimately, some people swear by Epic and buy into the culture, so it’s up to you if the pros outweigh the cons. But seriously consider, if you can, taking more time to search elsewhere and understanding if this is a job you’re willing to take on.

优点

Good food, (95%) good coworkers, events/clubs for employees

缺点

Will work you as much as you let them, your opinions don’t matter, you’re just another dog in their machine

Alright for the First Job Out of College

Pros:- Many young people straight out of college, which generates a youthful atmosphere.- Campus is nice-looking.- Cafeteria with good food.- Pay is good.Cons:- Few people stay for long (more than three years), at least in my role.- Work-life balance is not very good. Generally, more and more tasks are shoved into you.- My manager doesn't seem to care much about my side of the argument. He seems to trust every tattle-taler over me.- Very few transferable skills other than working with customers (which is very frequent).

Epic

Good place to work while you look for another job. Cool campus and used to have good food, so I bet it will again. The software is really boring and the company sense of humor is corny and not in a good way.

Maybe okay for a first job, but poor work life balance and burn out

Epic's workforce is based mainly on hiring recent grads fresh out of college that are eager to get into the workforce and want to contribute. Many haven't developed the skills to set good work boundaries and feel pressured to work extra hours to keep up with the endless amount of work.Coworkers are great and the pay is good, but expect your coworkers to be constantly burnt out.

They call it a software factory because management runs it like you're a factory worker

Pros: Amazing pay, the best health insurance you will ever have, great food, and a good start to your career if you want to leave and pivot with the experience you have been trusted with. Despite the cons, it is an excellent career stepping stone.Cons: Incredibly old fashioned ideas about work that do not work well in a 21st century company. Especially a tech company. Not a lot of time off, laughably bad WFH - 5 full days a year, and it is difficult to trust management - they botched the COVID response by recklessly endangering lives pre-vaccine through trying to force a return to office until the local health department had to step in and stop them - and they consistently mislead employees to this day.Hemorrhaging tenured talent due to terrible management decisions, like limited WFH. The exodus of experience is causing extra work for all at the company who stay. They are trying to hire their way out of it but the tenured staff that knows stuff is leaving.Also, there's no real great culture at Epic. They really talk up the culture when you are interviewing, but the culture itself is barely there. You have people huddled in their offices all day not talking to each other. It is just not a fun company or environment once you get over the fun campus design. Instead of being a fun, bustling, culture-filled environment, it is instead the kind of place where you dread bumping into the person across the hall because you have never gotten to know them well since you are isolated in your window-less private office all day just punching in for your shift at the software factory. - 

优点

Pay, Benefits, Amazing Health Insurance, good stepping stone

缺点

No WFH, workload, lack of culture, isolation in your private office, and management is the worst

Come for the pay and benefits, stay for the non-compete

Fun and challenging work at a cool campus with great food, pay and benefits. Coworkers are great, but management is out of touch and there is no transparency. They are so irrationally dedicated to on-site work only that they tried to bring everyone back to the office mid-pandemic, ignoring thousands of people's complaints and a public health order. They are chronically understaffed. Work/life balance is very difficult. Workload is unsustainable. Non-compete makes it hard to leave and find work elsewhere that leverages your skills and experience.

Good starting job

This job is a good starting job for when you come out of college since you get paid very well and you get pretty good training in the role you will be working in but its not the best work-life balance at time and no flexibility on work from home.

Ok

It's mostly fine, though there is a bit of a culture to really enjoy your work and work more than what is asked of you. I like to keep my work and personal life separate and this is a little bit harder to do.

Good Job for just starting out of college

It is a well paying job right out of college, but having no flexibility with remote work was definitely a turn off plus at times work was very stressful with the deadlines.

Good job right out of college. No one stays long.

Not a bad place to start off but not a good place to stay long term. They lure you in with the promise of sabbatical but barely anyone can last 5 years.

优点

Good pay

缺点

No work from home

Company is awesome, Managers could be better

Having been trained by the owner of the company I knew what she wanted and how it should be done. She cared about people and growing them. New managers over the growth of the company did not share this idealism would play favorites and have their own goals in mind and not the companies. Do good and work hard and you are rewarded in a nut shell.

优点

Health Care cost were really low due to average age of company. Stocks.

缺点

Self absorbed managers

Epic has a great mission but terrible approach to treating employees

Working at Epic was terrible personally, but I do know of people who genuinely enjoy or at least tolerate it. So here’s a fair assessment of what Epic does well: - Mission: Epic software is world class. While it is definitely not the most user-friendly, it is the entrenched market leader and that’s unlikely to change. Expect relative stability and no layoffs as a result. - Pay: There’s no denying a $65k starting salary for a job with no tech background required is pretty great. Many liberal arts, music, soft majors can get hired and excel. I know of several people who are very wealthy in their mid-20s because of Epic. IF you survive, though. - Hiring via tests over personality/connections: This is also a huge pro. Epic is entirely meritocratic in their hiring and this is quite admirable in theory. You work with co-workers who went to prestigious universities and state schools in Iowa; Epic doesn’t care. There are some consequences to that in some interesting personalities getting hired and becoming emotionally unintelligent TLs. - Training: Training focuses heavily on understanding the system. After a few weeks, you’ll emerge with several Epic certs for free that you can take elsewhere after the non-compete ends. - Colleagues: All my colleagues were smart. Business smart? Not really. But they were smart and could figure out problems. Any low performers are generally weeded out before even being extended an offer.Cons...Where do I even begin? Look up signs of a toxic workplace and compare it to your time at Epic. Think VERY carefully about the risk you are about - 

优点

Good salary, cheap COL, no experience needed

缺点

Ridiculous hours, emotionally unintelligent management, random app assignment leads to potential chaos

cool job on paper, extremely disappointing to work for

TLDR: My experience with Epic was terrible but it’s more dependent on what work is being pushed on you. There are some great aspects to the job but many downsides as well. You should at least skim this for content important to you.Working at Epic may be one of the biggest risks in your career. They target enthusiastic college graduates to fill positions with many responsibilities and, what initially seems like, very rewarding compensation. The average Epic worker stays for 2 years. This is around the time most people realize their job takes more from you than it gives. Epic will overload you with work until you are burnt out. Once you leave, Epic will be of no help to you real quick.As an integration engineer (EDI), you may do 1. tech support (A.k.a. “TS” or “Technical Services”), 2. software implementation, 3. software development, and 4. miscellaneous internal ownership, all for interfaces and APIs. In my time there, I’ve had to do all 4 options. 1. The TS portion of the job may be hit or miss, depending on you you’re supporting and what other software they plan on integrating with. My customers put too much reliance on me, putting me in a permanent overwhelmed state. You will not travel to your TS customers; which makes up the majority of your customer base in case this was of interest to you.2. The implementation portion was my most rewarding part. In this role, you help a hospital system implement Epic software for the first time. Unlike all other roles in the job, you can build directly in the customer’s to-be-implemented system. However, it requires the most effort - 

优点

great culunary team, good entry-level pay, some roles may allow travel

缺点

terrible work/life balance, they don't care about you as an individual, little growth, risk in finding your career

Toxic work environment

I worked at Epic a few years ago. While there are a few perks of working at Epic, the negatives vastly outweigh them. This was my experience: During the hiring process, I only met with HR and other employees (and they're not necessarily the same people you're going to be working with). I learned who my TL/manager was on my first day. Though I worked hard and tried my best to be agreeable, my manager hated me for some reason. Needless to say, it's hard to be happy and successful at work when your own manager is unsupportive and has no sense of fairness and decency. I also had a couple backstabbing, two-faced coworkers who threw me under the bus for their own personal gain. Fun times.At any rate, I think people's experiences at Epic depend heavily on which team you're on and which TL you have.

优点

Nice and interesting campus, excellent food, free garage parking

缺点

Work-life balance, lack of proper leadership
