      Pros

      Got a paycheck every 2 weeks and some benefits.

      Cons

      You have like 12 supervisors some use to be uber drivers with no experience over you. No direction or feedback until things are turning sour. People in management get constant promotions but never around. Cant answer basic questions regarding process.

      Pros

      As a new employee, this company goes above and beyond to introduce you to this world. The staff and workplace are engaging, everything is bright, clean and inviting. It's obvious that, even though the goal is to provide for patients, supporting the staff is a priority.

      Cons

      It's not easy joining a new employer during a pandemic.

      Challenging, Fulfilling, Inspiring- a Rare Job

      Dec 14, 2020 - Sales 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The mission truly unites the entire company; everyone here is inspired to detect and treat cancer early. The work here is challenging in a good way--it's the type of job you wait an entire lifetime for. Exact has invested heavily in engagement, diversity and trying to improve based on employee's feedback. The benefits are AMAZING--every single employee is eligible for stock and stock purchase. The pay is on par with industry standards but the stock makes up any differences in sales and otherwise. Then the health benefits, time off, paternity and maternity leave (12 weeks for both), mental health resources, fitness resources, etc. etc. Typically the people who complain have a "grass is always greener" mentality. You will absolutely be challenged here and face frustrations because the company is constantly changing.

      Cons

      The company has evolved from a "small"/startup company and blown up over the past 5 years to a known player in the industry. As a result things are constantly changing--everything, all the time. There is no stability and there tends to be micromanagement in the sales teams. The company is still young and figuring things out so there is a constant change in strategy, direction, management, etc.
