    I worked at Exchange Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Outstanding place to work, I would recommend it to anyone. Very up beat and great group to work with... professional to the client with the ability to get things done quickly.

    Cons

    Only item was that I was so use to working remote and only left due to travel time and lack of remote work... you need to be in the office for this position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the outstanding work...

    Pros

    Great people, fun place to work. Projects are interesting and technically challenging. Compensation is competitive. Work from home day a week is also nice.
    Tech project management is great and agile environment allows for steady dev load with time for research and innovation.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels there is too much process for the company of that size (I'm looking at you HR). Too many managers.

    Advice to Management

    Let engineers grow as engineers, instead of forcing them into management role.

    I worked at Exchange Solutions (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They really do care about their people and their clients (so many say this and so few really do).
    A very healthy and invigorating culture - centered around trust, accountability and collaboration.
    So much room for personal growth, very diverse projects, very busy and challenging, very empowering environment.
    Very little politics and hidden agendas... a very cohesive team that all works toward achieving common objectives.

    Cons

    None - unless you are looking for a "slacker" job

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how you managed to create such an incredible culture, but what ever you are doing KEEP DOING IT (don't let growth and competitive pressures change this)!
