Worst company/management ever
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Burlington, MAJuly 11, 2018
Like other reviewers stated, so many “directors” in this little company. The micromanagement is anoying and inefficient. Employees are not treated well and fairly. The merit increase is sometimes measured by the relationship with the mangerment team but not your work. Not recommended.
Pros
Free bagels on Friday
Cons
Very poor managermtnt team

Top & Middle heavy company
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Burlington, MANovember 7, 2017
This company had some good ideas in 90's and did good work in early 2000's. Now ran its course and the top & middle layer is grown too fat now and keeps control of pretty much everything.
Pros
Free Bagel on Fridays
Cons
Everything else

Senior Sales Executive, Highway (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MISeptember 12, 2017
In my brief time working for Exa Corporation, I was able to work with some highly capable people utilizing state of the art technology. The company provided decent benefits and a good working environment.

I would recommend anyone who has an opportunity to work for Exa to do so.
Pros
Excellent people and technology

Small company with typical small company challenges

Great place to just sit and do your work.
Junior Technical Writer (Intern) (Current Employee) –  Burlington, MAJanuary 29, 2017
The standard process consisted of:

Testing the software
Finding any changes/additions to the software
Documenting the changes
Sending the changes out for peer editing/accuracy
Putting the edits in as necessary

I learned a lot of cool software and the freedom to focus only on my work was great. The hours I can work were also very flexible.
Pros
Free bagels on Fridays, can sit and do my work without management, very flexible hours
Cons
No healthcare for interns
