Epocrates is in a weird place.
Regional Vice President (Current Employee), San Mateo, CAJanuary 6, 2013
Pros: free pastries and fruit
Cons: micromanagers
Epocrates is trying to redefine itself. Morale is down and people dont know whether to hang on or run for the hills. New management is cleaning up house but some of the bad attitudes are hard to get rid of. There are a lot of skeptics but when there is no transparency it's really hard to be a believer. The most frustrating thing is one day they say – more... we are moving left then a few days later we are moving right then abruptly stop going in any direction. Team Leads/ Managers have bad attitudes and are losing quality people and will probably lose more if they dont open their eyes soon. – less

Innovative Technology Company
Compliance Administrator (Current Employee), San Mateo, CADecember 21, 2012
I provide legislative and regulatory updates to the company. My favorite part of my job is understanding the intersect between legislation, technology, and compliance. I enjoy my coworkers immensely, but am eager to expand on skills and interests.

Used to be a great place to work
Sr. Visual Design Manager (Marketing) (Current Employee), San Mateo, CAOctober 8, 2012
Pros: good healthcare, bagels on friday.
Cons: poor upper managment, too many failed projects due to meeting launch dates
Used to be a great place to work until the last CEO brought everyone down the wrong path. More than 1/2 of the original employees left; the ones that stayed had to deal with the pains of a new CEO and top management who do not understand the company, their employees or their customers. Eventually after an agonizing 3 months of saying something was going – more... to change, it did: employees quit, people were fired and one department was relieved of their jobs only to be replaced by an outside agency. Give it a year or two and they might get back on their feet; as of now, I would recommend to stay away. – less
