    Pros

    1. Love that I can pitch ideas to make a better/smoother process
    2. Super flexible
    3. Great work/life balance
    4. Management is good

    Cons

    1. The is a communication barrier between upper management/ARM's and employees

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a liaison in each department - 1 person - to relay all the information between upper management/ARM's and employees. That way, no one can give a different version of information received.

    I have been working at Xceligent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is very family oriented, compassionate, understanding, flexible, generous, and so much more! The NEW flex-time option is absolutely awesome!!!

    Cons

    The ONLY negative thing I can say is the health insurance is not very good. If you are only working for health coverage, you will be disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    1. Offer options for health coverage. 2. Enforce rules in the employee handbook consistently across the board. 3. Enforce department transfer and job description requirements across the board.

    Flexible schedule, family oriented, group bonding

    Cons

    I'm a mature person, can't think of any cons that wouldn't happen in any other place. I really think this company appreciates their employees.

    Just keep the Xceligent family bonding coming!

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Pay is alright. The wellness reimbursement is generous. I'm not sure about it being a career choice for most people, but it's fine for a while.

    Cons

    Favoritism DEFINITELY EXISTS. Policies are not enforced consistently with everyone. If you are friends with a manager, you most certainly get treated better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. It's very obvious.

    Pros

    The work is interesting. It feels like a family and they support one another. Very flexible hours and management tries to get to know everyone. Lots of training and help given.

    Cons

    Reviews and pay scale need some work. Communication is still a bit of a struggle but gotten better. There some people who just enjoy gossiping and being mean but that's the minority.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the communication and trust your people. This job isn't for everyone and some bad apples can spoil the bunch.

    I worked at Xceligent full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Didn't necessarily see any unless you came from a worse situation and you live in the area.

    Be sure to read the other reviews because I found them to be very accurate.

    Cons

    As a research analyst, it's pretty much a step above an inbound call center position. During the interview process, it's never mentioned that you're expected to make hundreds of outbound calls each month to real estate brokers who mostly view you as an annoyance.

    Most of the desks are setup in old warehouse bays but it's not as bad as it looks at first.

    There are "The Haves" and "The Have Nots" - meaning certain people get to park in areas that would likely result in a write up for employees not in the privileged class. That kind of attitude is BS but it does open up parking spaces for "The Have Nots" so it's not so bad - just looks bad in terms of special treatment.

    Training was decent but I'm not sure if the company will ever turn a profit and thus be able to offer real benefits.

    It seems like their primary business focus is shifting to gathering data about companies that relocate so they can sell those business names to other companies so they can be solicited for services. Pretty much an annoyance to all involved and really a BS job to try and collect that data.

    Advice to Management

    Give up and close the doors.

    Pros

    None. I really cannot think of one. Besides maybe the pay is ok. Not the place for you if you enjoy a normal office environment. Rude people everywhere. Do not take a chance with this company.

    Cons

    I have never seen a more dysfunctional company. There is no communication from upper management to any of the employees. It is all over the place. Do not even bother applying to this company. If you want to be left in the dark everyday of your career. This is a good place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Get Management. Treat your employees with respect. Talk to them. Give the employees an idea of what they are doing half of the time. I highly recommend management changes their ways. This company will fade quite quickly if not.
