    I have been working at Excentus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They currently have good leadership to help you get started.

    Cons

    A lot of production work (slides, image processing, templated emails, templated website)

    Advice to Management

    Have a budget for designers to develop outside of work. The learning curve plateau isn't that high, so I think if there's opportunities to attend conferences or take online classes through the company it'll encourage more people to stay in the position longer.

    I have been working at Excentus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Casual dress everyday, free food often available and monthly team lunches, laid back work environment. Decent health insurance and 401k match.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Constant changes (Re-org) to align with marketplace but no good results. Lack of communication between departments which often results in selling something Company don't support. Rushed to get things done but features are not used since or scope changed. Some leaders treats employees with no respect and find a way to point fingers when something goes wrong without taking responsibility. Treats...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Excentus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Casual dress everyday, food was often available, laid back, interactive with holidays, fun people to work with, wasn't strict about being in early

    Cons

    Management would stress "their door was always open" but never really followed that through and didn't seem to really care about helping people. Upper management wasn't very approachable.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so hard to talk to

    I have been working at Excentus

    Pros

    Good people, lots of freedom to contribute to strategy, state-of-the art office

    Cons

    Financial growth has stagnated, company has perhaps missed its window of opportunity to take off and become something big, not a lot of vision for future growth from management

    Advice to Management

    Find new opportunities to grow outside of fuel

      Pros

      Technical department and great people

      Cons

      The executives have no clue about their market and their people. They sit on their high tower and look down on its people. If you are not related to the executives or in their circle, forget about advancing.

      Advice to Management

      Build clear strategy and direction, not everything needs to be a knee jerk reaction Learn empathy and respect

      I worked at Excentus

      Pros

      Good people, nice work environment, casual dress code

      Cons

      Everything else! The leadership has no clue. They senior management group changes the song every couple of months. If you can dance to it - your in. If you can't- your out. Meanwhile, the song will change again soon so I hope you can keep up. Limited financial upside

      Advice to Management

      Look at yourself before always placing the blame onto others. There is a common denominator and it is you!
