    I worked at Exchange Solutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - I love ESI for its great people and working culture, every one is collaborative, engaged, approachable. No micro management. - Very organized software development, high quality code control, very clear responsibilities. - They keep up with latest technologies, at least the team I worked at, project scales are generally smaller, lots of microsite projects, but they're not afraid to try new things which is excellent...

    Cons

    - Company has downsized a bit during my stay, and is on its way to scale up but are facing many challenges at the moment.

    I have been working at Exchange Solutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    -Informal culture and lack of corporate/bureaucratic hierarchy -Organizational appetite for change - good example is our renewed focus on discipline in new business development pursuits -Commitment to a data-driven business model that adds real value for clients -Full of smart people who want to do the right thing for each other, for the company and for our clients

    Cons

    -We've struggled to grow/scale at the pace we want to, (but we're getting there) -We can make it a more of a priority to ensure our managers and teams don't allow our best people to burn out when others aren't pulling their weight

    Advice to Management

    -In their co-CEO roles, Bob and Mike are genuinely interested in removing barriers to our success... they are truly customer-focused and hold me accountable to be as well. Keep doing that.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Exchange Solutions full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Nice people Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Really understaffed operations team means that there’s zero effort to move away from a (very) weak deployment framework. Deployments that take milliseconds elsewhere often take days to coordinate and execute. Some developers have been complaining about it for years and are not allowed or welcomed to suggest changing it. Developers and Architects are treated like young children regardless of experience level or performance....

    Advice to Management

    Hire a proper ops team. Let the technology people make the right decisions. Replace the marketing executive.

      I worked at Exchange Solutions full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Fantastic company to work at, brilliant people with a common mindset and mission. A company where employees are still extremely valued as one of its main assets, and are treated as such. I would recommend Exchange Solutions as a top employer in a heartbeat.

      Cons

      Relatively slow company growth (due to long sales cycles) can be a determinant of some employees' growth too.

      Advice to Management

      Employees own career growth is naturally within (and defined by) the confines of the company's. Continue to find ways to engage and nurture employee growth, creating a clear roadmap for each employee's development.
