    Mid-sized consulting firm. Lots of visibility and interaction with managers and executive team. Overall, a great place to work.

    Cons

    No 401k match is the only major con in my eyes.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Excelacom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Real small company feel, everyone knows everyone, people are very friendly, most of the customers have been around for a while so they know management, which is good. Great place to network since you meet so many people from different companies.

    Cons

    Work life balance isn't the best. It 's a consulting group, so long/odd hours are to be expected, but the company directive doesn't offer comp time, is stingy with work from home situations makes maternity leave difficult. If you're lucky and you get a good manager and a good account, that's great. But there's only so many of them. And a lot of the positions are more staff aug than they are consulting, which makes job descriptions a misleading. And zero transparency from management, unless you're in the "boys club" and a manager gets chatty.

    Pros

    Great place to launch a career. Exceptional integrity - no funny stuff going on. Performance based career trajectory - you can double your starting salary within just a few years.

    Cons

    Typical small company cons - not a lot of places to move to. You can sometimes get stuck on a project that is not interesting. Company still trying to position itself for the future.

    I have been working at Excelacom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For a new college grad, this is a great place to start since you get to go right into the fire almost on day 1. You can also get promotions and salary increases very fast depending on how quickly you get going. The individuals and managers you work with are generally good people. The experience that you get at the entry level is probably much better than at a large company. When you get into a high visibility project, life is really exciting.

    Cons

    For those seeking clear career structure, this is not the place for you. You don't get mentoring and sometimes it takes a long time for anyone to tell you what the heck they hired you for or what they expect from you. Due to the small nature of the company, you might get stuck in an uninteresting project and get bored to death. The relationship to the offshore component of the company needs a lot of work. It's usually an embarassing mess. Although, that's probably more of an industry problem and probably not specific to Excelacom.
