Your hours and experience at the company are very dependent on your customers.

The sexism I experience is industry wide and often times subconscious. There's nothing in particular that makes my company worse than others, but they don't do much to education/reduce sexism as a company and have "industry-standard" policies related to family (leave, hours, etc.).

Epic treats men and women equally; however, the job is demanding for those trying to maintain a healthy work-life balance; my hours have ranged from 60-80 hours a week and includes travel 50-75% of the time. The CEO is a woman who has built the company from the ground up, which is very inspiring, but at the same time the company does not provide any additional family leave outside of what is required by FMLA.

    It depends on their priorities. Epic treats men and women equally in terms of workplace opportunities and advancement. If work-life balance is important, would advise prospective employees to consider whether or not this job is a good fit for them. My role has me work anywhere from 60-80 hours a week and traveling 75% of the time (admittedly this is on the higher end of the spectrum).

Health insurance here is incredible; the pay is very good considering local cost of living.

It's a good job until you want a family. With the lack of any paid maternity/paternity leave, and poor work life balance, it's simply not a good job for anyone not fresh out of college.

The people and environment are great, but whne it comes to family policies, they are not helpful.

    I'm very happy in my day to day work, but the benefits are not family friendly (no paid maternity leave, only 6 sick days, no on-site daycare or backup childcare assistance).

Your experience will vary greatly by role. In the training division, there were blind eyes to gender bias in leadership opportunities and training evaluations. But the two larger challenges are the poor upper-management project planning (resulting in unrealistic deadlines that required 70 and 80 hour weeks) and a lack of flexibility (requests from trainers to job-share or go part time were denied supposedly because the company would then have to make those options available to all employees). Go in with your eyes open to the possibility of burnout and negotiate your compensation at the outset (salary and vacation days - even if your recruiter says they don't negotiate), because the systems for raises are pretty inflexible later on.

    The work experience here varies so much by job role, but in many positions, there are opportunities to gain a lot of experience and new skills. While it may not be the perfect place long-term, if another woman was looking to gain specific job skills and knew about the challenges, I'd recommend Epic.

It's a great place to start a career but not even close to giving work/life balance because of the amount of hours and travel.

I worked here for 10 years. It's a great place to learn and grow, but if you aren't put on the "team lead" (aka lower management) track - there is no opportunity for advancement. As time goes on, more is expected of you but you are rewarded less and less - lower raises and lower bonuses with each year, after about the 4 year mark. Epic does not value experience or efficiency. Instead, it places a high value on hours logged and involvement in high profile projects. Inexperienced team leaders need something easy to point to - hours logged and your project list are the two easiest things to look at. So, if you're not working 60+hrs/wk and if you're not working on a shiny, exciting project, your value is not recognized. And that means you do not grow your salary or bonuses.

    If you can manage to keep your hours reasonable while meeting expectations (which are very high), yes. Would not recommend if you are planning to have children or if you have very young children.
