    I worked at Epsilon (North Carolina) full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Understanding. The managers will work with you if they think there is a problem. But sometimes we all get blind sided.

    Cons

    Not always willing to work with you when the prime decides to get rid of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When the prime contract lets someone go, and doesn't give you a reason, make sure you don't blind side, and then screw your employee out of vacation time.

    Pros

    The job is dependent on where you are assigned. Epsilon is just there to take a cut off of the contract payment.

    Cons

    Some of the Project Managers can be very testy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on making the workers feel more needed.

    I worked at Epsilon (North Carolina) as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    O.k. work/life balance. Flexible scheduling and helpful personnel when there's a time crunch, especially when the expiration of contracts come around. Opportunities for also taking classes on the side which the company will reimburse you for.

    Cons

    The company forces people to take their pto days which was annoying. No room for advancement, year-end bonuses or salary increases, especially if you're a contractor. There is also no appreciation for employee loyalty like when you decide to stay on for a few years; when the contract's over, there's no desire to retain the employee. Also, though most people were nice, there was one person in HR that would always have a short fuse for some reason (very unprofessional).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain good employees, please refer them to similar other jobs within the company. Also, a salary increase or two and/or bonuses would do a lot to increase employee morale.

    Upper Management is very personable and makes you feel like part of the family.

    Short term contracts with the DoD are norm. Job security is lacking on these types of contracts.

    I have been working at Epsilon (North Carolina)

    Pros

    Epsilon is the top Database Marketing Services Provider ranked by Forrester Research and there is no question why in my opinion. They provide a dynamic environment that is motivating and well managed with great communication and ability to grow. The benefits are also well beyond many other companies with a strong 401K match, great medical and dental options, 3 weeks vacation on your first year and a free gym membership on-site. Epsilon also provides a positive culture with creative talented people with programs recognizing co-workers and/or management for their hard work and dedication. I would highly recommend Epsilon as a great career path.

    Cons

    Epsilon is growing at a rapid pace due to new acquisitions and staff. Because of this, many employees are working harder and longer hours to get their work done. However, i think this is necessary to meet the goals we are setting for ourselves and as a company. This will also just help those hard working individuals receive recognition and be rewarded for that hard work as well as grow within the company.
