No Clear Strategy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Epsilon full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood people at Toronto location

ConsNo clear strategy, shifting of priorities have left Toronto office in limbo. Morale is broken

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a plan, get buy-in and proceed.

Good Company, but declining as an employer

Senior Accounts Manager (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Epsilon

ProsIndustry leader, cutting edge products and services make it a great place to learn. Rapidly expanding with the marketplace today.

ConsPay is mediocre, at least in Canada. They're too busy trying to become a "single source solution" that they're forgetting to become experts in anything.

Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down and give your employees time to digest the changes and growth before you move on to the next acquisition.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Epsilon bought us

Senior Director, Project Delivery (Current Employee)

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

Pros401k matching, encourage charitable donations

Health insurance is bad and even after huge deductible, in-network, it only covers 80% - major illness could bankrupt me

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to best leverage employees vs trying to make them cheaper

Lost in the woods.

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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
