I worked at Exadel full-time (More than 10 years)
Worked at Exadel as Software Engineer for 17 years. Participated in the entire chain of products from ECom through Exadel Studio Pro to JBoss Developer Studio. Had a lot of freedom to try my own ideas for the better design and implementation, got much responsibility for many large features, which let me proudly feel myself the author (of course that could not be without the team).
For me, this great project became a catch, strategically it was a mistake to stay with the same project for many years. As a result, when JBDS was put from active development to maintenance I had to go together with it, not being a match at the time to requirements of other projects at Exadel.
Advice to Management
I wish they might try giving me a chance to grow into another active project, though I understand that business is above.
I have been working at Exadel full-time (More than 8 years)
Highly competitive salaries and benefits (majority of the offers I received from other places, even if had comparable salary - never had benefits close to what I have).
Totally different projects ranging from products and to all kinds of customer projects of various sizes and industries.
Number of career paths which pretty easy to follow once you serious about it.
Management that cares about employees.
Bright people all around.
after 10+ years - never saw any :)
Advice to Management
keep up the great job!

Exadel is good and stable company to work for. It has very good benefits and allows flexible schedule. Great 401K plan.
More of an enterprise feel than a startup. You won't get company sponsored field strips or fully stacked kitchen.
I have been working at Exadel full-time (More than 5 years)
Good team and culture.
Good healthcare plan and 401k contribution.
Engineering in US is not priority of management.
I have been working at Exadel (More than a year)
Flexibility, work from home, salary, parking, language cources
I don't know about this

If you work at one of the Exadel's Eastern European offices, you are likely getting a pretty sweet deal. Competitive salary, a good pool of projects to choose from including major Wall St firms, plenty of international travel opportunities with perks like generous per diem, rental cars and excellent hotels. If you wish and prove yourself useful, you can get transferred to the U.S. office, the company will arrange a work visa or sponsor a Green Card for you.
Contrary to its offshore locations, working at Exadel's HQ in the U.S. is not much fun at all. Exadel is a consulting firm.
They have very few projects that need U.S. based engineers, therefore you face a very modest, hardly competitive compensation package with no career growth opportunities of any sort. If you are very lucky, you can secure a project that uses modern software development practices, but more likely than not you will get stuck with 10 year old technologies, your resume will smell like a dead cat and your software engineering career will be over. Good luck finding a job after a few years with the company. Look out, don’t let this happen to you.
Advice to Management
U.S. based employees are not part of the company's business model, so this is expected for them to feel miserable and neglected. Fair and square, that's all I can say.

Very good health insurance. Great location (Walnut Creek, CA).
There is no such thing as a career growth inside the company. Maybe in offshore offices but not in the US.
I have been working at Exadel (More than 3 years)
Good company benefits package including 401K and medical/dental/vision insurances.
Career opportunities because it's pretty much offshore company
Potential to master or change your career
Conpensation could be better, no attention to outsorced contractors after contracts signed-off
interesting projects; nice people; good management
sometimes you need to work during the weekend and after the working hours (but in my case it always was compensated)
