It offers up many challenges.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Epsilon

ProsThe ADS mothership is a financially stable company which is able to support Epsilon's initiatives as required. There are some truly interesting problems to solve, and puzzles to sort out, which makes the work rewarding.

ConsWorkload to staff ratio lacks balance, making work/life balance nearly impossible. There are many directors at the company who perform as managers, and many VP's who perform as directors. There are a lot of floating agendas which either trivializes the immediate work, delays the immediate work, or negatively impacts the quality of the work.

Great company with excellent technology

Senior Director, Technical (Current Employee)
Irving, TX (US)

I have been working at Epsilon full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLots of talented individuals
Excellent technology
Constantly evolving organization
Opportunities to advance

Cons(see Pros above) - if you are average or below then you won't stand out here and won't get promoted or assigned to the latest/greatest technology.
Fast pace and technology can lead to burnout if not careful

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep landing accounts and we will keep delivering! Glad to see additional profit sharing in December for those not already on bonus program. So many improvements in benefits in the last 3 years and they are greatly increasing retention of talented staff.

Great place to work for If you are lucky to be in the right team

Lead Interactive Developer (Current Employee)
Blue Ash, OH (US)

I have been working at Epsilon full-time for more than a year

ProsDepending on who is your immediate manager, it can be a great place to work. You can have freedom in technologies you use and your voice will be heard. You will be appreciated greatly if you do a good job. Great office location and environment. People are very friendly. You get a free gym membership.Most importantly they are growing fast and it helps to be part of a rapidly growing company. Also if you do a good job you can get promoted without typical loops and hoops of big corps. Great work life balance depending on the phase of the project and your role in it.

ConsThey are not good in raises and merit increase rate. You have to be pushy in order to a get a raise or promotion. They focus too much on being Advertising Agency than being a Software Company, hence technology people would feel left out of company's focus sometimes. But that being said you would still be heard and can put influence in the corp.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be more generous in compensation because people get really discouraged when they see the raise rates. Also please dont let technology people like developers, designers, and DB team, feel left out of the vision of the company.
