Overall Reviews at Epic Systems

Solutions Engineer | Madison, WI | Jan 30, 2020
Fast paced high expectations with rewarding and challenging work.
Your day to day is highly dependent upon your specific role. As a TS I found that there were ample opportunities to challenge myself internally and in customer work. There is always room to grow upward and take on more responsibility.

Great place
Loved working there ,poor money management and job bidding causing me to be laid off. But it was a great place to work. Would go back if given the opportunity
Quality Assurance Tester | Wisconsin | Oct 29, 2019
It's Alright. Terrible advancement opportunities.
If you get a job like QA, prepare to be stuck there forever. Good pay, bad everything else. Overall, gets impressionable young people to work more than they should and holds the threat of unemployment over people's heads. Also a very uninventive company.

Exciting work with burnout environment
The work is exciting and energizing, but the company has poor leadership and transparency. There is a very high turn over rate for young employees that doesn't seem to bother anyone.
Solutions Engineer | Verona, WI | Jan 8, 2020
Cultish and not for everyone
If you don't fall in love with the culture immediately, then it will be tough. This company is not for everyone but for those that fit in and work hard it will pay off.
Solutions Engineer | Verona, WI | Oct 26, 2019
Varied with a large workload
Overall the job was enjoyable. The work was varied and challenging. I learned a lot of new skills. Everyday had a lot of work to be completed and I was kept very busy.

Everything is a gray area
Read the description of the job you apply for at Epic closely. Epic is a fan of "take on as much as you can chew". A lot of people at their first jobs like to make a good impression by doing a lot of work. This pans out as taking on responsibility before knowing the scope of that responsibility. Epic's all big about things not being black & white. Things that are black & white: -2 weeks vacation starting out -3 weeks vacation maximum -The sabbatical thing -The very fair amount you get paid -The great health benefits Epic offers -The primo cafeteria food -Epic loving itself at its giant staff meetings Management structure that's as clear as mud Management structure that's as clear as mud Management structure that's as clear as mud
ProsGood cafeteria, Good pay
ConsMisleading job descriptions, Management structure that's as clear as mud

Get paid well but don't expect to enjoy it
Epic does a terrific job of finding recent college grads who didn't take a job in the field they worked toward a degree for. Candidates are wooed with a large paycheck and cool, fun campus but then are strapped with crazy workloads on a month or two into starting there. It can be overwhelming is made more difficult due to the fact that it is not work most people would enjoy (you could always be the exception). They also love to talk about their even management structure and how there's no hierarchy which is just blatantly false. Personally, I also felt I didn't fit in well in Madison. If you think you can handle all that, by all means, go for it. You'll make good money. Just be careful not to get burnt out.

Customer management and troubleshooting. Also writing some code. Food is amazing.
A typical day at work consisted of meeting with your customer IT team and troubleshooting issues they had. Troubleshooting included looking into internal documentation on similar issues and reading through code to determine what was causing the issue. Also wrote some code to provide different functionality in the system.

What does a technical problem solver do?
Asked Jun 2, 2017
Take follow-ups from Hospital IT teams and ask those follow-ups to people who actually know what they're doing. Understanding the software comes with time. About 2 years. Good luck. Training is just a start.
Answered Aug 11, 2018
Provide support to your customers via email, phone call, regular meetings, etc. to ensure their hospital is running at its finest and improving going forward. Can be bug fixing, installing new services, providing feedback to devs, optimizing old systems, or in general helping to the customers do what they need to be able to do.
