    Pros

    To me Exa has a genuine warmth about it as a place of work which is vital in such a tough, rapidly evolving industry. Exa provides an open, sharing and creative environment where innovation is encouraged and positive change embraced. Honest proactive communication between all areas of the business is what drives the organisation forward.

    Cons

    Having to constantly refine and reinvent what we do to stay in step with technology and keep our clients at the top of there chosen industries can be exhausting. Technology does not stop which leaves little to no time to take a breath and reflect on any past successes as the nature of the industry means that doing so will lead to quickly falling behind so work/life ( and rest) balance needs to be monitored ongoing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote open honest communication and support the professional growth of all team members and maybe look to implement a long term staff loyalty rewards to help Exa keep the Guns it consistently nurtures and develops in the digital space.

    Pros

    Generally a really nice group of people, I spent quite a bit of time at each of their offices around the world, many of the managers and team leaders are quite young (late 20's early 30's) but they have loads of training for them and all of the teams. Awesome internal systems, far and away the best I've seen. Great results for clients, so many testimonials and thankyou emails. Lots of recognition of staff achievements.

    Cons

    Quite long hours, tho I was able to pretty much work when I wanted and got bonuses for coming early and project results. It's tough to get promoted after big staff intakes that happen regularly. Salaries are pretty average by industry standards, I know one of the main corporate goals is to be very high paying so that should happen over time. Long travel time for me.

    Advice to Management

    You seem to mostly be on the right track, keep on developing the vision and do more 1 on 1 goal setting with staff. Having so many staff travel overseas to other offices is great, but do more of it. Do even more charity projects, they really motivated me the most.
