    Pros

    Office environment is amazing
    Friendly people around
    Open work culture
    Equal opportunities for women
    The office looks amazing!
    You will love working here.
    Free food on fridays.
    Transportation free except for 8-5 shift
    Shift allowances.
    Free coffee, tea and biscuits. :p
    No partiality
    Great work life balance.
    Work from home option.
    Entertaining activities keep happening.
    They values thier employees.
    Team outing are the best.

    I dont understand the negative reviews given by few senior employees, just because they are treated the way other employees are treated doesn't mean they are not valued.

    Cons

    No clarity in job roles, at least until you start working.
    No new technology to work on.

    Pros

    Infrastructure is good. Lots of opportunities for those who wants to become a manager. Good work environment. Cafeteria is good. This review is based on Epsilon, Bangalore India.

    Cons

    Boring work, boring work culture, hectic work for developers, 90% of the work is production support and maintenance activities. No good opportunities for those who wants to explore more on new technologies. Almost all the managers and directors are ex employees of big companies like Wipro, Accenture, Dell... and so on, so the work culture is short of copied from all those big companies and made it as a mixed and worse version, a Frankenstein work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Be specific, honest and clear job description during the recruitment or in the job advertisement. Do not screwed the career for your subordinates.

    I worked at Epsilon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Nice looking office.
    * Good for college kids in a way.

    Cons

    * Hiring all college freshers. All these freshers are still in college mode and don't want to work. All they want is to party. They look like models to me instead of professionals.
    * Not for industry hires. If you want to spoil your skills up, then join this org.
    * Because of women empowerment, they have hired lot of females in the org even if they are not suitable for the role. This is leading for senior and capable people to leave the org. This is very unfortunate that the females are ruining the space. P.S.: I am not against women empowerment but this is not happening in the right way. Excess of anything can be devastating.
    * Senior people are being asked to leave and people who can just speak big stuff but can't do and just do the talking and buttering are going to stay.
    * US based people think we are going to eat their jobs and therefore they are not helpful at all.
    * Rest all the college hires have made a lot of mess. Shouting, pot luck, ethnic day, fancy dress, dance competition, this and that have made the office place nothing more than a college campus. They just don't want to work at all and the price has to be paid by senior people.

    Advice to Management

    Please get a hold of the college hires and hire capable people.

    I worked at Epsilon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well.. I was with epsilon for almost 2 years and have seen the process from the beginning and my review is based on the points that are asked as process of ratings by glassdoor..

    Pros Facilities : Free Transportation, Free Food on Fridays, Office interiors are attractive, Brand Name and the back-up from alliance data services.

    Compensations and Benefits: You need to ask for it at the time of interview and the benefits are good

    Work/Life Balance: Lot of work from home but where is the work ?? ;)

    Cons

    Career Opportunities : Are really for the ones who are not serious about their careers

    Senior Management:

    1. Leaders with "Zero" Leadership skills. Insecure in nature. They claim that they are into digital marketing and none of the leaders here knows the "ABC" of digital marketing which is really sad. The ones who are blindly following this may read the articles and relate to the kind of work that is being done here and may conclude.

    2. Hard stop to your career and you will eventually forget whatever you learnt in your past. Leaders play an important role in screwing up your career as they themselves are not technically sound

    3. Unwanted and Unnecessary politics by the Sr. Managers and Sr. Directors and to satisfy their egos. For example they just want to conduct some programs internally which has no meaning and they doesn't make any sense

    Culture & Values
    Work Culture here is a real joke. Especially from the digital operations teams. Not sure what is the kind of culture people follow in this group. Maximum chunk of people came from one of the vendor which was outsourced by Epsilon in the past.

    Join epsilon if
    1. You are good for nothing and you need some stable job
    2. You are not good at learning and are happy that you are getting salary at the end of the month
    3. if you are a Party freak
    4. if you are really good at impressing the Sr. Director with your gestures

    Don't Join if
    1. You are qualified enough
    2. You are aggressive in learning and doing things differently
    3. You believe in doing your job and don't have the talent to impress your bosses by any other means except work
    4. You have the self-respect.

    Advice to Management

    Epsilon Bangalore has some worst leaders weather you agree or not. You guys should really focus a lot on changing the way you operate.

    Pros

    Free friday food
    Free transport except 8-5 shift

    Cons

    Worst transport facility, need approval everytime when you change time even for a single day
    Free friday food is of worst quality and same stale food they serve in dinner which is the most disgusting part of free friday food
    work from home is not there at all at least in my team, only for advertising the best work life balance, no work life balance at all.
    There are lot more cons.
    Advice don't join this company, if you have another offer go for that.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your HR team which is worst till date i have seen.

    I have been working at Epsilon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Epsilon has a brand name
    work life balance

    Cons

    Bangalore Epsilon has started growing since last 2 years, but not much work to be done. US counterparts don't have the confidence with Bangalore team that team can deliver. Bangalore management doesn't have authority to take any decisions. They are always seek US management. Whatever US management says, Bangalore management follows blindly. Job security in Bangalore Epsilon is 0%. if they hire a person in some technology and US management says, that work has stopped, then Bangalore Management don't even think and they start firing that new resource. My suggestion is, if you are already working in a reputed company, continue there. Don't fall on Epsilon Bangalore salary increment trap and don't risk your job. By looking at the office which is always empty, you will never know when you will be fired :) Its better to continue your life with the salary for next 15 to 20 years in a good company than continuing your life in Epsilon for 3 years and then you never know when you will be fired

    Advice to Management

    By looking at leaders faces, you don't feel confidence at all. They look always upset and always depend on US management. Get some dynamic leaders if you really want to grow in Bangalore.
