I have been working at Exact full-time
This is a turn-around story. What was a dormant company left to wither on the vine has been reinvigorated into a great place to work making products customers want. There have been growing pains and some turnover, but the current management is committed to completing what they started and making this a great company once again.
While the US divisions are somewhat independent, there is still some influence from the Dutch parent company. While this isn't always a bad thing, it often creates awkward marketing campaigns and misunderstandings.
Advice to Management
Keep it up.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Exact (Bloomington, MN) in October 2015.
I had an initial interview with one of the managers and a developer. The interview itself was laid-back and didn't get too technical in nature, it was more of a get-to-know-you type interview. I was asked some questions about my background and some general questions on how I would handle hypothetical situations. I had taken time to research the company and peruse their website, and had plenty of good questions to ask them. Overall I felt it went well and that I had a good rapport with both people.
However, when I contacted the recruiter a few days later for a status update, I was told that they wouldn't be moving forward with a technical interview, and that he would try to find out why. I never heard back from him. I found this frustrating, and quite frankly unprofessional (on Exact's end) as well. Even if the answer was something like "not a good culture/personality fit", at least that would be something I can work with to try and better my chances in the future. After reading through some of the reviews on this site though, it looks like I may have dodged a bullet.
