    Pros

    Really good pay. Decent benefits if you know where to look and take advantage of them. Management attempts to keep environment drama free.

    Cons

    Upper management changes alot resulting in constant policy changes that can leave you confused. If you are looking to become a supervisor good luck, they prefer to hire from outside

    Pros

    People are really nice to you during the interview and hiring process.
    Free cheap coffee and tea.
    Covered parking.

    Cons

    This company will use you and then dispose of you.
    They claim that their employees are like family but they will let you go if you make a mistake or if you don’t pick up super fast.
    Benefits have very high deductibles.
    Compensation is lower than average.
    Horrible perks and no freebies.
    People do not greet you in hallways and outside of the company.
    Super high turn over.
    Whenever their budget is low, they start cutting employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t hire someone who to get projects done and the let them go.
    Trial period should be 90 days, not a couple of weeks or a month.
    Don’t expect people to learn in a couple days or a week.
    Invest more in technology and less in looks.
    Warn employees about their performance or expectations before letting them go.
    Be descent and at least pay a couple of weeks whenever you let someone go to give them time to find another job.
    Have reviews and advise how employees are performing and cover expectations.
    Don’t ask employees to leave good reviews here and other places as well.

    I have been working at Exeter Finance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I came to Exeter from a competitor and found a culture that fits me. The sterile, rigid, corporate feel in most big business environments is always a struggle for me, but Exeter has found a way to cultivate growth while at the same time leaving a small grassroots feeling culture intact. I have appreciated the improvements in work/life balance at this company of which I did not experience else where. There are several other positives, but these have stood out the most for me.

    Cons

    No company is perfect and will have pitfalls, but the holes in Exeter are so minimal that they do not have a negative impact on my perception of the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    I have appreciated the more collaborative interface here as opposed to the strict hierarchy/boss relationship of other work environments.
