The people at Exclaimer are so willing to help each other by explaining, training or jumping in to support with any issues or asks. There is a culture of making suggestions for improvements and ways of working that allows people to propose change and see their ideas acted on. The company is small enough that there is a big opportunity to make an impact on company growth and activities and I have greatly enjoyed being able to bring projects and ideas to life. We also have a training budget to support learning and career goals.
The company is changing and growing quickly which is a challenge for both new and tenured employees - it gives an opportunity to create your role but means the pace is quick. Most teams are busy creating and building a lot of process, operations and changes to put in place systems and capabilities you take for granted in larger more established companies. You need to be happy to create and build while working!

- The company is mature in it's product and processes, so there isn't the same frustrations you'd find there with younger companies. - Goals are clear and regularly re-visited to see progress and adapt as needed. - Lots of support and encouragement from management to learn and make good software. - Not afraid to make and learn from mistakes. - No blame culture. - Lots of support for training, both in time and budget. - Good work/life balance. - Remote work. - Great pay, decent enough benefits (healthcare, pension, holiday, flexi-time). - Communication is usually pretty good.
Can't think of any significant cons so far! The benefits package could be a little better, just in terms of better discount services and maybe offer a wellbeing allowance, but that's about it.

Team success is celebrated with some sweets delivery :) Work from home policy with exclusion of working hours :) Training budget
Continually monitoring to details and constant pressure that brings a lot of stress. Employees double standards. Don’t care about their employees unless family related. Compensation is low. No benefits or reward packages. Everything is chaotic, takes ages some issue to be resolved. Very low possibilities to progress. There is no communication, team work does not exist.3

Innovative like getting employees to leave 5* Google ratings pretending to be customers
There really is a lot that doesn't sit right at this company, like gettin the sales staff to sell a new product that never ends up working correctly or not having any appraisals in which to voice your opinions or concerns. There are thse that belng at Exclaimer and those that never will4Exclaimer Response9mo
Thank you for your review although we are disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your time with us, we always value feedback. We have created BETA trials for products for example and always maintain regular communication with customers on the quality of products. We see testing out new products and BETA trials as a positive activity which enables us to work with customers to test out opportunities and get feedback from customers so we can build better solutions in the future. As a company eager to gain feedback from customers and strong verified reviews your suggestion around Google is one that sounds at odds with our approach, but we will investigate. Exclaimer does have a biannual review process in place and appraisals that enable employees to voice concerns, and we also have regular 121’s, objectives and goal setting for all employees. Additionally, our HR team are always on hand to discuss and support employees with any concerns and would be happy to discuss those you have if you wish.

Great people, clear and exciting vision and opportunities to grow. Good communication from managers and through regular all-hands. Chance to be part of a fast-growing business and make a difference.
We are moving pretty fast and you do need to be comfortable with change, which may not be for everyone.

Genuinely hard to think of anything
Innovative but short sighted business model makes the company seem to think it’s something it isn’t. Very high employee churn and possibilities are limited to progress5Exclaimer Response9mo
We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your time at Exclaimer and would be interested to hear more detailed feedback if you would like to discuss it with us.

Excellent company values Wonderful colleagues and management Great vision and drive within the company
maybe give people lower in the hierarchy a louder voice1Exclaimer Response12mo
Great to hear you are enjoying working with our wonderful colleagues, we do think we have some great people at Exclaimer and that we provide a warm and friendly environment. We also appreciate your feedback about ensuring everyone has a voice, something that we try to do through our management style and approach, but we would love to find out more about how you think we could improve this. If you would like to reach out to your manager or one of the people team we would like the opportunity to talk to you more on this.

Company is doing great fanatically (unless you are asking for better benefits). The people are great to work with. Work from home (although some managers are trying to claw this back)
Management and culture is mostly toxic, no communication between departments and almost no opportunity for advancement. Company is a permeant slave to investment the more investment it gets the worse management and culture gets.7
