    I worked at Exchange Solutions

    Pros

    Great people, fun place to work. Projects are interesting and technically challenging. Compensation is competitive. Work from home day a week is also nice. Tech project management is great and agile environment allows for steady dev load with time for research and innovation.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels there is too much process for the company of that size (I'm looking at you HR). Too many managers.

    I worked at Exchange Solutions for less than a year

    Pros

    They really do care about their people and their clients (so many say this and so few really do). A very healthy and invigorating culture - centered around trust, accountability and collaboration. So much room for personal growth, very diverse projects, very busy and challenging, very empowering environment. Very little politics and hidden agendas... a very cohesive team that all works toward achieving common objectives.

    Cons

    None - unless you are looking for a "slacker" job

    Pros

    Working with very driven and hard working people is what sets this company apart from the others.

    Cons

    Sometime demanding long hours which doesn't necessarily mean that it's a con, but you need to work hard to get the benefits of working for the organization.

    I have been working at Exchange Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast paced. Interesting problems require multi-disciplinary teams to solve. Smaller account teams means you get an opportunity to work on a broad range of different projects.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for mobility as it is a smaller company. Attempts to create a young, start-up vibe but is still very old fashion. Small senior management team is based in the US makes for interesting organizational structure.
