    Pros

    I worked at Exact for more than 1 year but less than 10...

    I loved the company and everything it stood for when I first started. Then as the years went on and America started losing control it all went downhill. We were a name, not a number. We cared for each other and Human Resources were just that...human resources.

    Cons

    U.S. lost all control to the parent company in the Netherlands and many great, talented people lost their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are not Microsoft, stop acting like it. I've never met anyone in the U.S. that has ever heard of Exact or its products. First try establishing yourself here in America and earn the right to flaunt later. And don't forget...it's your U.S. employees that make Exact what it is here, try to remember that too.

    Pros

    I like the people I work with on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for advancement. My supervisor has asked for a promotion for me for 2 years and despite excellent reviews, I have been told there is no room in the budget for advancement.

    Pros

    Good team in the US, stable product proven in small european markets.

    Cons

    False starts in markets outside Holland are largely due to this organization's inability to cede "go to market" control to those markets. Insistence on running everything from Holland adds cost, complexity and continues to mean missed expectations in the very markets critical to their growth. Absurd performance goals mean they never have to pay performance bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from your past mistakes. Find some humility - being the #1 software company in the smallest country in Europe doesn't mean you know everything. Continued failures outside your comfort zone indicate otherwise.
    Ignorance and arrogance are a not a great combination.

    Pros

    Upward mobility, compensation, management, passion

    Cons

    Lots of change (pro and con!), some question of job security, work/life balance is a bit off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are great at supporting and encouraging your teams. Senior management is amazing at communicating challenges and accomplishments and rewarding success.

    Pros

    The company culture in the America's region was driven by the America's Executive Team. The entire team had an open door policy and worked day and night to the keep the employees feel like they were part of an entrepreneur environment. The America's team survived 4 Corporate CEOs within 4 years, they had to follow some tough decisions made by Corporate behind the scenes but always fighting for the employees and the customers. I respected them and worked very well with them.

    Cons

    The company went through 4 Corporate CEOs in less than 4 years. There were too many changes and I heard eventually with the 4th CEO he terminated the Executive team and closed the HQ offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the Corporate Executives, People are not just spaces, they have faces make contact with them, talk to them, get to know who your people you would be amazed at the great talent you have that you don't even know about.

    Pros

    Loyal customers and partners trusting the relationship they have built over the years with Exacts various product lines.

    Cons

    Product development, support and services are cut to a minimum levels, jeopardizing customer relationships. Employees in the Americas are not treated with the same levels as in Europe -- compensation and benefits are reduced and no longer competitive to retain top talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on customers and employees and the results will follow

    Pros

    I enjoyed the opportunity to interact with many wonderful customers and to work closely with a lot of excellent co-workers on various challenging projects.

    Cons

    Technology is dated and not keeping up with the latest trends and advances. While employed, Exact attempts to treat their employees well. On the way out, they do not treat their employees well at all.
