Current Employee - Intern

I have been working at Qualcomm part-time

Pros

Nice people and work culture

Cons

None that I can think of

Former Employee - Technical Support Analyst

I worked at Exago full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great company to start out at. Everyone at the company is extremely smart, personable, and great to work with. The product works extremely well and has hundreds of awesome features. This company is... great to start out at because in order to be successful, you need to learn so many different concepts - from less technical concepts like interaction with users, project management, and communication skills, to more technical skills like interaction with the product's source code, fixing bugs/adding features to the product, learning different database types, and using the product itself for reporting purposes. Working here will give you an extremely versatile skillset. Overall, I enjoyed working at Exago a lot, and feel that the skills I learned as a Support Analyst served as a baseline to help me move on to my next great opportunity.

Cons

-The pay is decent when you first start, but the skills you learn in this role are worth more on the open job market after about a year than what Exago is generally willing to pay -The benefits are... good, but not great -The product is very complicated and it takes a long time to fully understand all of the features (this could be considered a pro if you enjoy the challenge) -I felt like there wasn't a lot of transparency between the Shelton and Kingston offices, and that some of the higher-level goals of the company were not effectively communicated to the Kingston office. I do feel that there were some steps being taken to help this just as I was leaving, however

Advice to Management

The main reason I ended up leaving Exago was that I realized that the skills I learned as a Support Analyst served as a very effective baseline to get me a job in almost any software or... software-adjacent role I wanted at another company. After about 1.5 years I had actionable experience in Quality Assurance, Software Development, Database Engineering, Customer Success, Product Management, and more, all on top of the general day-to-day Tech Support responsibilities. The versatile skillset listed above is worth a lot more on the open job market than what Exago is generally willing to pay after a year, in some cases, 75-100% more. I was not the only person on the team to realize this, and I talked with multiple people on the team who felt the same way. My advice to management - if they want to keep talented, versatile employees with an extremely good understanding of the product, would be to lean more into the above information. Allow Support Analysts and other "low level" employees more internal growth opportunities and pay them the appropriate salary for their skill set, instead of a nominal pay increase over their existing salary. A 10% pay raise for an internal growth opportunity is nothing compared to the multiple job offers with 60+% pay increases that I received from other companies on my way out. I liked working at Exago, and even the promise of a 20-30% pay increase associated with an internal growth opportunity likely would have been enough to keep me from looking for new roles in the first place
