    I have been working at Exact full-time

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Exact (Bloomington, MN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    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.
