    I worked at Xceligent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upon joining the company, the benefits were "ok" and time off policies liberal and accommodating. However, upon departing from the company, these very basic pros had deteriorated dramatically. There are no other pros to this company which is NOT sustainable without DMGI, their primary investor.

    Cons

    Support Staff (market analysts, customer service): grossly underpaid, improperly trained and unrealistic workload. The turnover rate is so high that it not only confuses the field staff, but the customers as well. Their direct management team does not have the education or experience to oversee and direct appropriately.

    Mid-Level Management: Historically, this level of management has been associated with or related to the company's family in some way regardless of qualifications. There is no leadership, expertise, organization, support or follow through within this level. Complete chaos at best. The same can be said within the tech support arm.

    Technology: Considering this IS a technology company, one would think that investment and attention to data, it's quality, it's ability to be user friendly, an educated support staff and simple functionality would be par at best. Unfortunately, their system has been "broken" from the onset and they simply band aid the problems as they arise. DMGI would have to invest a fortune into a complete overhaul of the system for it to function to even compete with CoStar.

    Senior Management: Since DMGI came on board as an investment partner, Top Management have brought in numerous senior level management members. Most have exited within their first 12 months with the company. One would consider this a HUGE RED FLAG for how Xceligent functions. There is no management other than the Top Level Management, and what they do manage is within very questionable and ethical boundaries with both their investors and the IRS, not to mention their customers. Chaos is just as prevalent at this level. Titles change by the week. Delegation is non-existent. Members of Senior Management are just waiting for Top Management to take their "exit package" and for DMGI to come in and take over before the company completely implodes. This level also believes that the company is not sustainable as it is positioned technologically.

    Top Management: Absolutely no professionalism within the company. I cannot speak as to how they interact with DMGI. Not honest about data integrity, accuracy of the "numbers", geographies, etc., when presenting to potential customers at all levels. Wants the field sales staff to memorize (word for word) the CEO's sales pitch and that's the company's training program. Epitome of a used car salesman mentality. Top management is only looking out for Top Management to achieve their financial milestones as it pertains to their obligations to DMGI. Then they will take the money and run...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice one could give to the management that only cares about themselves and their $$$.
    After working for a multibillion dollar company before joining Xceligent, I cannot even begin to understand how this company is still being supported by DMGI and that they have not seen through the cloak and veil that they are investing in.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, weekends off, steady paycheck.

    Cons

    Horrible management & management centric, advancement and raises are a joke. Management does not support employees. Negatives are highly recognized and pointed out, while positives and hard work is ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get all management/ supervisors on the same page. Quit playing favorites and start recognizing employees that are knowledgable, qualified and go above and beyond job requirements to help co-workers be successful and support a company that does not support them & consider paying current employees the same as new, unexperienced new hires. The core of the company is it's employees! Get off your high horse and treat them as such!
