    Pros

    They paid me well during the time I was there. Benefits were good.

    Cons

    Very expensive product that cannot do what their competitors are doing at 10% of the cost. Company has been jacked up by the venture capitalists and current owners to prop up the stock price. They can never succeed at this point in this mature market place. Doomed to be a niche player forever.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Exa Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1.You have a job. 2. Housed in nice building

    Cons

    1. Micromanagement. I was a CFD programming engineer. My manager would put me down because I left too much empty space between lines of code...I am not kidding. I was reduced to a typing clerk, instead of a programmer. 2. My Manager openly would discuss and bad mouth other employees thinking that others can't hear him=> no respect or courtesy for employees. 3. Low pay, to the management you are fodder or a donkey 4. No promotions, promotions are proportional to your closeness to the managers. who cares about coffee or free pop?
