    Not the place for you if you're not into fun, dogs, longish hours and/or consulting

    Current Employee - Software Tester in Irvine, CA

    I have been working at Exsilio Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I'll be real. I do software. I enjoy software. I like to grind. I'm not here for a nine-to-five, I'm here to build a career and win. That said, I'm not about to wear a uniform, park my face in a cubicle and call it a life. I want to work for passionate people on cool projects. I don't mind extra hours. I don't mind tight deadlines.

    TL;DR:
    1. Passionate about IT
    2. You work with very competent people
    3. Company cruise
    4. Very competitive compensation
    5. Great coworkers
    6. Nerf wars
    7. Ping-pong table

    Cons

    1. Room for growth in operations, but things have improved in orders of magnitude since I've been here. The COO and the HR manager have A LOT to do with that.
    2. Deadlines can be hectic
    3. Longer hours
    4. You can't be a fun hater.

    I worked at Exsilio Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and great co-workers, along with the opportunity to work with the latest software suite. Free drinks and snacks.

    Cons

    Lots of employee turnover. Micro-management from the CEO is terrible and completely undercuts the project managers. This leads to poor work prioritization and the environment of reactionary development. While their compensation is great, you'll have to keep an eye on it yourself because they are financially inept. Many examples of errors in pay or forgetting to deposit your funds into your 401k!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is never OK to get an employee's pay wrong. There is no quicker way to losing the trust of your employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is getting better at being more communicative with direction and future plans of the company. But should also be more diligent on providing feedback on how teams and employees are doing.

    I have been working at Exsilio Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exsilio has recently made some key changes in upper management, resulting in a much more organized, transparent, accountable and decisive company. Adding an HR manager was a great move.

    Cons

    Everyone should be accountable - even owners, when things go wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff as small fires can oftens be put out before they become a larger fire that is out of control. Your employees is what makes your company and how you treat them.
