    I worked at Exchange Solutions full-time

    Pros

    - The organization is rich with talented individuals spread throughout the company org chart - Org structure feels 'flat' in nature, as most people are approachable and easy to work with - Use of Agile/SAFe Agile methodologies - Bleeding edge cloud technologies - Decent work culture

    Cons

    - Depending on the department you work in, the pay scale you receive may not reflect industry standards - Trajectory within the company may be a challenge for some. Despite my hard work/long hours, I received zero promotions/title changes during my tenure, all while my small annual raises barely covered the costs of inflation.

    I worked at Exchange Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can learn a lot if you are a self starter. Groups of people that are up to start interesting projects. A few very intelligent and well-round developers that can really help and mentor a developer. A supportive CTO that encourages learning and growth. Can maintain a great life style.

    Cons

    Too many employees that are there just for a 'job'. Not enough passion in the dev team for technology.
