    Cons

    Being a fast growing company, sometimes new processes put in place can cause bottlenecks and disruption. However these processes will only improve the internal operations once they have bedded in

    I have been working at Exponential-e full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Have worked at Exponential-e for ten years in which time it has increased in size from around 100 employees to nearly 450 employees whilst experiencing significant double-digit growth year on year, something unheard of elsewhere in its sector. The CEO, MD and other directors provide, and inspire, huge amounts of personal loyalty; they are approachable and willing to listen and take on board your views and advice. Opinions...

    Cons

    There can still be a "sell anything to anyone" attitude amongst certain salespeople which takes up time and resource amongst support functions which is not proportionate to the deal value.

    Advice to Management

    Have all relevant resources reporting into the relevant director (i.e. sales people into sales director). This helps support functions by having a single point of resolution for competing demands.

    I worked at Exponential-e full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Some talented people - Free Coffee & Fruit

    Cons

    Great company to work for if you believe that fish jumping out of fish bowls into other slightly bigger fish bowls means your company is a leading innovator. Exponential-e see themselves as some kind of divine force that swept across the universe when in reality they are an average telecoms provider who manipulate, over work, and under pay their staff. They sell false dreams...

    I worked at Exponential-e full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've worked for the company just over 3 years and and the grounding and development Exponential-e gave me meant I was able to progress when the time was right. The success the company has had over the last few years is based on hard work and there is a level of expectation required however, when we reach the targets we are rewarded as one whole team.

    Cons

    Could be a little more flexible, especially when results are beinig achieved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop your staff and I'm sure this will ensure year on year growth remain.

    Pros

    Exponential-e gives people the opportunity to be a part of an incredible journey. An organisation which takes a huge amount of pride in their values, customers and employees. Working at Expo means working in an agile, and spirited workplace. There are difficult days, but these are outweighed and outnumbered by the extraordinary results achieved and hard work from everybody - which is rewarded and recognised in the...

    Cons

    Naturally there are creases to iron out but primarily due to our own success. We have grown so rapidly. That being said, Exponential-e functions in a such way that issues are quickly identified and tackled.

    Advice to Management

    Always room for improvement, and we need to keep moving in this direction. Continue encouragement and incentives for employees and keep up the forward-thinking and agile mentality that Exponential-e has.

    I worked at Exponential-e full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I joined the sales team at Exponential-e in April 2005 and left last year enjoying a successful sales career there spanning 11 years. From a sales perspective life is very simple at Exponential-e - work hard, with a good attitude and the business will support you and you will be rewarded well. The environment is geared towards helping sales people succeed. There is an opportunity to earn very good money with generous...

    Cons

    Nowhere is perfect, when I was there there were a few systems that could have done with streamlining and the odd employee who didn't make the right grade IMO however in the grand scheme of things these were small issues in an otherwise great company.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management team do a good job especially considering the challenges of the industry. My advice would be to keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    I would highly recommend anyone to apply for a job within Exponential-e if you found one that matches your skills. This company gives you all right support and opportunities to grow. The company's culture and social events are always amazing. They manage to maintain healthy level of work life balance. I am very much sorry to leave. Its truly amazing company to work for with right values, strategy and vision.

    Cons

    I cant think of any example as I very much enjoyed my experience at Exponential-e.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with amazing work everyone is doing.
