    I worked at Xactware Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The management is great, there's summer games, all the coworkers act as team players and are very friendly coworkers. Flexible hours with a great location and lastly, awesome bosses!

    Cons

    None I can think of. I loved it here! I only left because my husband's job got relocated to another state.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome! Adam Peterson, Zeke, and Ben Hunt were some of the best people I worked with!

    I worked at Xactware Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and culture with fun environment/activities. Nice facility with amenities: kitchens, cafeteria, rec room, basketball and volleyball courts, and nice gym. Good people.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities. Advancement based more off who you know than what you can do. Compensation slightly below average.

    Advice to Management

    Better the paths for growth. Increase focus on good user experiences and sustainable project/product planning.

    I have been working at Xactware Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working here for 8 months now and I love it. I am treated like a human being and I am not asked to work extreme amounts of hours. I have time for my family and energy for hobbies after work.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that for my position we are not paid as competitively as other companies. However, the work life balance more than makes up for this in my book.

    Advice to Management

    Work on making the salaries for tech positions more competitive. Otherwise keep making sure that you are not working your employees to the bone and keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Xactware is loyal to it's employees and provides a fun and rewarding work environment. Lots of opportunity for career growth.

    Cons

    Xactware is slowly but surely losing it's identity to its parent company Verisk. Pay does not seem to be on par with other tech companies in the surrounding area.

    Advice to Management

    Make adjustments to increase compensation for your top performers or you're going to lose them.

    I have been working at Xactware Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive, looking elsewhere with any better is hard nowadays. Onsite gym is great.

    Cons

    Pay really could be better. They always talk about how they compare with companies around the valley; but I don't think they are comparing individual titles. I have never seen a pay go up due to them comparing. Interviewing for other positions available within the company is very hard since it is open to everyone, you will see flocks of people apply to jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be humble leaders and motivate others.

    I have been working at Xactware Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Xactware offers some of the highest salaries I've come across in Utah. They pay employees well, offer great bonuses, and generous time off/benefits.

    Lots of opportunities to play sports if you're into that. Ping pong table downstairs, gym, basketball and volleyball courts.

    Awesome Christmas party.

    Cons

    The product is insurance estimation software. So unless that tickles your fancy, work can be very monotonous.

    Most of the management are older and pretty set in their ways so it's hard to bring innovation to the table (even though that's a "core value" for the software company.) Xactware has been around for 30 years and is a market leader, which makes them slow to change.

    Social is not a priority in this company, which is another thing holding them back.

    I worked at Xactware Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    snacks
    Covered parking
    company activities
    the fact that im no longer there

    Cons

    Lack of access to data center Jersey folks have no clue what they are doing and treat the folks in Utah like stupid hicks. Unable to complete a simple non disruptive change without a ton of hoops to jump through. Unable to get out of their own way to get stuff done. Bonus and raises are a joke. Extremely high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people and quit being so stupid and archaic. Promote people from Utah once in a while not just from Jersey.

    Pros

    Flex schedule. Get to work before 9:30 leave no sooner than 3:30 work 40 a week to get all your hours.

    Cons

    Pay and compensation. People leave because they can get paid more at other jobs so there is quite a bit of turn around.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay please.
