    I worked at Xceligent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of great co-workers and team managers. The work itself was interesting, challenging and enjoyable. Flexible schedule. Decent pay. Decent benefits. Decent office. Some autonomy. Potential for advancement.

    Cons

    Poor internal communication. Conflicting priorities. Procedures changed way too much and way too often, sometimes back and forth. Unreasonable production expectations in one department in which I worked, but reasonable expectations in another. Some upper management didn't treat people well and created paranoia among employees. Unnecessarily high pressure. Company couldn't adjust to market conditions and competition well enough to survive.

    Advice to Management

    None. The company is no more.

    Pros

    Was a great company to work when the original owners were in charge. They were very loyal to their employees and took great care of all of us.

    Cons

    Once DMGT took over lack of support for their employees became evident. We were given 30 minutes notice the company was shutting down for good and to remove all our personal belongings.
