I have been working at Exact full-time
The new GM in Columbus has replaced most of the managers over the past couple years and this has made a huge difference. Although the past decade was pretty rough at Exact with heavy-handed management by the Dutch parent company and poor local managers, the new management seems to operate more independently and it has made a big difference. The GM seems to be very driven and positive and has done a lot of things for the employees. Revenue is growing dramatically. I'm on the development team and we've seen many positive changes. The team recently switched to Agile and is re-engineering everything. We're building new architecture and I'm learning new skills. Also, they are encouraging lots of new activities to keep things interesting -- hackathons, field trips, free lunches, and training. Also hiring seems to be increasing and the team is growing. Work from home policy is a great benefit as well as a nice vacation policy. Great place to work and great people.
IT/helpdesk group can be difficult to work with. Junky laptops. Salaries are OK but nothing to brag about.
Advice to Management
Remove process. Get us better laptops. Things are really improving. Keep doing whatever you're doing.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Exact.
Initial phone screen went very well, then contacted a few days later to come in for a face to face with the hiring manager of dept. Was told the hiring manager was very impressed & looking forward to interviewing me.
Upon arrival on interview date, was informed the mgr was not in due to unanticipated circumstance and would need to reschedule. Was asked to meet with another team member. Team member seemed taken aback, but did discuss the job description with me--there was no interview and team member seemed confused as i was. Left facility with impression hiring mgr would get back with me to reschedule. Inquired via email a few days later for a follow up to the reschedule-- and not even an answer or explanation as to why they had me come on site for an interview, and then would never have the professional courtesy to get back to me. Very unprofessional not only for lack of response--but lack of respect of a potential candidates time.
