Blog Audit

I wanted to state, for the record, this is not meant to add fuel to the 'fire' that is ePrize.

I wanted to vent about my experience as an employee of ePrize. Mostly because when I received my official offer letter, I researched the company online. At that time I only found the 'warm fuzzies' about the company. If I had the opportunity to read statements from both current and former employees about their ePrize experience (such as are written here). I may have saved not only myself, but ePrize a little heartache as well.

As it has come to my attention that the masses @ ePrize now know this blog exists (that took a long time - chuckle) I also realize the ePrize legal team may be thinking about legal concerns.

Please realize...

*This is a personal blog; opinions are my own and do not reflect ePrize's views or intentionally reveal proprietary information.*

I have posted my opinions. I am encouraging others, employees or otherwise to post as well.

Now carry on, more to come.

Best of the comments:

I'm not sure what you expected when you started this blog. I think you definitely provide the negative point of view on the company. I think you give logical arguements behind what you present. But I also think you are a product of your own views. Meaning that you were not able to see the good that was going on around you because there is a lot of chaos and noise.In my own effort to help balance the universe, I've started my own blog I think between the two of us, we can actually make quite a few good things take place at ePrize. As we all know, this blog has gone around the company now (sup Josh! thanks for starting ePrize) and I hope that it continues to circulate. I think that you present the negative things in a way that is honest, if a bit narrow. And I think that the anonymity of this will allow more people to voice their thoughts, as it is outside the scope of "the company". cheers!Josh H.

IT took about 3 months for me to see beyond the smoke and mirrors, yet I still drank the kool-aid willingly for many more months to follow. Like Santa, I WATNED to believe. I still WANT things to get better for the employees I know who are still there. I WANT all the young-ins (and old alike - lol) to see improvements. But as I left that building for the last time, I realized there were more wheels spinning, and less actual forward movement than management..er..'leadership' leads the employees to believe.Joshua said.."I think between the two of us, we can actually make quite a few good things take place at ePrize."It makes me very sad that it took this silly blog to actually pierce the skin of the ePrize leadership team. I'd love to hear for change.I'd love to see some of my friends that still work @ the company.I'd love to hear everyone used all their vacation days this year.Call me negative. It's ok. You see no longer working for the company, I have time to come back and give you my thoughts behind things. I have the free time to spare.

"I have the free time to spare."seems you'd have something more productive to do with it, than this negative blog. maybe plant trees? volunteer in your community, maybe start a blog about something positive?

Joshua said: "seems you'd have something more productive to do with it, than this negative blog. maybe plant trees?" I agree; now that you aren't spending every waking moment giving your soul to ePrize, enjoy the fresh air! Breathe it in, do something positive for your community, your family! I can't tell you how nice it is to enjoy dinner with my family, sleeping more than 4 hours a night, a walk in the park with my pup, visiting friends, going to the beach and actually enjoying my summer! Jealous Joshua? However, I think the blog is a great idea. An experience like ePrize deserves a good cleansing!

Eprize is a first class sweat-shop. Just know that before going in there. They'll work you to the bone at cheap wages. If you don't mind making a few people rich off your hard work have fun.If you continue to show up Monday morning you can't get mad at them. Look in the mirror. You're the one showing up!"A fool is born every minute" and hey, they gotta work somewhere!- Bryan

Just Say No to ePrize:
Dizgruntled...didn't NEED nor was I looking for a job, it just happened. As soon as I smelled the Koolaid, it "UN-happened". Pretty basic concept.Clearly, if you are either immature enough in your career, or don't see your own potential and chose to be exploited that's your decision; I made mine, thank you, and am now back in the professional world of grownups.
