    Pros

    Epsilon is very flexible and leadership is willing to work with you to achieve your goals. Epsilon has gone out of their way to ensure I'm challenged and engaged with the skill set I possess.

    Cons

    The nature of contracting is a battle between offering competitive prices to the customer and salaries to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Set salaries more competitively toward national averages than contract allotments.

    Pay was at least on par with local market; some schedule flexibility.

    Fix the cons.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    Work on making the workers feel more needed.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Great Work ...
