My Work Day
Accounts Payable Specialist II (Current Employee) –  Madison, WIJune 5, 2017
Depending on the workplace environment, the typical day can be routine, determined by the monthly accounting cycle, or can be immersed in audit activities day after day. For the most part, an accountant's job is exciting, depending upon the particular office and position. For example, a public accountant’s responsibilities include auditing, tax and management services, and consulting. In the public setting, an accountant's objective might be insight for the clients they serve.

Great to grow with.
Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIJune 1, 2017
Learned as a "jack of all trades" with every department as we grew and accomplished the largest colon cancer study ever done. Truly an amazing effort by everyone.

Half stars should exist for this company.
Accountant (Former Employee) –  USAMay 13, 2017
This company has the corporate environment down to an "exact science". Don't buy into the friendly, positive environment they will undoubtedly tell you about in the interview. Managers who would rather see their team members fail than succeed and who will suck every ounce of self-esteem until you are nothing more than a bobble head of yes. No worries though because even at that stage you will somehow still not be worthy of any real advancement; regardless of degree, work ethic, personality, or attitude. Cliques, favoritism, and "sorority sisterhood" run rampant.

Something terribly wrong at Exact Sciences.
Professional Medical Representative, Inland (Former Employee) –  Empire, CAMay 3, 2017
Started with a wonderful vision of culture and mission. With so many upper management disappearing so suddenly and a new VP of Sales, the culture turned for the worse. Expectations were lofty and unreasonable. Pressure was beyond necessary on sales force. Goals each quarter were raised to point that reps could not make it, therefore bonus not 100% but then reps are put on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) that cannot be attained. One person did make it and still was fired. Almost all reps from beginning are all fired or quit before they were unjustly fired. I see Class Action suit in their future. One product, great product but not worth the cancer spread by corporate and upper management.
Pros
seasoned reps, great camaraderie if honest and kind
Cons
salary below competition, managers micro manage, unreasonable goals.

Manufacturing Operations
Lead Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIApril 4, 2017
I started here right out of college when the company was just 50+ people big. It was a great learning experience and the work culture and people were great. I recommend working here, but would recommend not counting on moving up if you work in the manufacturing operations department.
For the department I worked in there was not much room to grow as an individual. The management for this department did not provide clear routes to take and when questioned about it more likely than not would recommend you leave the company for that kind of route.
Pros
work atmosphere, people, and benefits
Cons
management, no opportunity to grow

Growing Pains/Poor Sales Management Team and Sales Structure
Professional Medical Representative (Former Employee) –  EastcoastApril 3, 2017
PMR/Sales- The low pay equates to poor sales operations methodology and questionable quotas. EXAS is based on a pharma model of selling, soft sales...
Pros
Company Stock Purchase Plan
Cons
Different levels of sales talent from the overqualified and highly experienced to the young, green reps

Avoid this one
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Madison, WIMarch 24, 2017
Unless you are able to start as a manager or supervisor, this is not a place for advancement. This is run on clique and friendships. If you are friends with a supervisor, you will be rewarded. People with skills and work time are overlooked for people who get coffee and drinks with the boss. Favoritism runs rampant. proceed with caution.
Pros
benefits.
Cons
loud and unprofessional people, interoffice relationships create lots of drama

I enjoyed my time at Exact Sciences. The company has a wonderful product and it is really making a difference in detecting colorectal cancer early. Exact Sciences had a diverse welcoming culture.

The workplace is very friendly and the work is too easy. You get paid nicely for just completing simple online data for customers and doctors alike. I highly recommend anyone seeking employment to check out Exact Sciences.

Facility Manager, Etc. (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIJune 17, 2016
Exact Sciences is a fast paced Biotech company that has quickly developed an FDA approved colon cancer screening test, Cologuard. I helped start the company with just 10 people and has now grown to over 800. I wore many hats starting with Lab Manager which grew to Facility Manager. I learned a lot about GMP and FDA compliant production.
