    Pros

    exp Federal has capitalized on the best parts of being a newer, small organization with plenty of flexibility, opportunity and growth yet has retained access to the benefits, leverage, and resources of it's larger parent company. The (often cliched) startup attitude is present and it's exciting. Very professional workplace.

    Cons

    The standards and practices are still being refined from the former legacy so there can be some confusion. Less oversight and lack of structure can be hard on some people, others thrive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent work so far, scalability will be the key going forward.

    Pros

    Good people in Houston office at a great location. Co-workers who are passionate and knowledgeable; enjoy the experience. Corporate has overall great benefits.

    Cons

    Where to start...
    No regard for corporate structure. If you have an opinion, leave it at the door. Way too many turn-over for a small company; either you run or you get run out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management at the corporate level and HR need to take a look at what goes on at this company. Take a look at how many qualified people who have left in the past 13 months. Business outlook for the next 6 months I marked as getting worse, only if no changes are made. This company has potential to be a great company.

    I have been working at Exp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Work with a great group of people.
    -Jobs are challenging and interesting.
    -Technology wise they try to stay current.
    -Multiple offices, so opportunity to transfer between offices.

    Cons

    -The company runs lean. While this is not a bad thing, expect to live at the office if there are major deadlines.
    -No bonuses.
    -If you are salaried....be ready to work extra hours and not get paid for it.
    -Company is very disorganized with all the mergers. Management is out of touch with what goes on day-to-day.
    -Not much of an opportunity for advancement. Management has tracks set up, but there is little support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Get more in touch with the pulse of the company.
    -Recognize and pay attention to other areas besides the corporate office in Canada. The US services is very large.

    I worked at Exp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You can maintain a work/life balance if you are okay doing mediocre work and remain steadfast in going home at decent times. Can try to take off early on Fridays, but that usually doesn't happen due to poor project management and unforeseen deadlines. The people are nice and pleasant enough. Health benefits are okay, but not stellar. The company doesn't have a strong focus, so the projects are quite varied.

    Cons

    There is no management of people and no growth opportunities. Management is focused on dollars and cents, not the people. Therefore, there is significant turnover. Projects are never executed well, nor is management even trying to improve. They actually do not seem to care about the poor quality of work or stress caused by needlessly staying in the office late to meet last minute deadlines. The company also does not cover things like parking costs at the office or food when traveling. The gray cube environment is sufficating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Start investing in your employees if you expect long term loyalty
    2) Recognize good work with bonuses or another method of award
    3) Do not do the same thing over and over again while expecting different/improved results
    4) Improve/update the office environment

    Pros

    Free coffee.
    Nice view from the conference room window.

    Cons

    Don't believe anything on their website about how this is a fun place to work. There is nothing fun about it. The managers don't manager and no one seems to want to place nicely with others.
    Rank and file employees don't get bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat people.
