    I have been working at Exemplis full-time

    Pros

    Exemplis is an organization full of talent. They are the fastest growing company in their industry and it's not by accident. They seek out specific individuals and won't settle for anyone but the best.

    The environment in the office is hard working but low stress. The company culture is the best I've ever worked for. I really enjoy the people I work with and I'm gaining loads of knowledge.

    Cons

    The benefits are getting better, but still lacking in some areas. 2017 is the first year for 401k match and everyone is really excited about that! Health insurance premiums are expensive.

    Virtually every decision in the company has to be approved by the CEO. He is a really smart and approachable guy. The downfall is sometimes decisions can be delayed for weeks/months because his schedule is so full.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - the future is bright for Exemplis!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Exemplis (Cypress, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Phone screen and then called in for a group interview. The phone screen was very basic and just went after my previous CS skills which were pretty high. The group interview seemed well rehearsed and it was obvious they had done this as a group before.
    The interviewers were really just, "checking the boxes" asking basic, "tell me about a time when...." questions.
    The interview turned cold when I asked them why they had recently posted for a COO / CFO and CMO. I followed up with something I read on Glassdoor about their hiring and firing 2 VP's of Customer Service in a very short time.
