    I have been working at Exceptional Software Strategies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Phenomenal company to work for with great benefits but above all, they care. They strive in motivating and growing their employees. I have been with them for 4 yrs now and am happy where I am. They do social events, you get bonuses just for working your hours every month, and they are family oriented.

    Cons

    Same as any other company when it comes to contracts.

    Advice to Management

    You guys have improved drastically, keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Exceptional Software Strategies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Focused on the employee, and provides multiple opportunities to advance through their online learning and reimbursement programs. ESS is a family environment that truly looks out for the interest of their employees. Benefits are great, and they have an open door policy that starts with the owner of the company. Many additional benefits include clothing allowance, gym reimbursement and paid children savings bonds. Employees...

    Cons

    Communication can be delayed when decisions come down from management. This has been improving, and it can be a challenge with employees in several locations to know the state of the company. While the company continues to grow in contracts/work, there is a shortage in the skilled workforce and that can leave positions unfilled.

    Advice to Management

    Increase communication across the entire company, attract bright talent with positive attitudes, keep the family oriented structure and continue to invest in your employees. "Management may wonder what would happen if they invest in their employees and the employee leaves, a good leader would ask what would happen if they don't invest in the employee and they stay"

    Pros

    This company is a small, Mom and Pop IT shop. If you like small companies, this may be a good fit.

    Cons

    Management and recruiting staff do not tell you the truth in the interview or while you are onboard. I suggest YOU NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with potential and current employees and stop cutting salaries to fill your own pockets.
