Difficult start-up
Senior Area Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJune 26, 2018
Be careful - can't judge a book by its cover
Initial focus on vision for company is expressed but now company is run like big pharma- all about big brother telling you what to do, how to do it, and with whom. focus on reach and frequency of call metrics

not much advancement opportunity unless you are part of the 'inner circle'

hardest part of the job is the unreasonable volume quotas and the lack of commercial insurance coverage and not expanding into this younger patient demographic
Pros
not many- fairly autonomous with customer base
Cons
many- big brother imposing their home office rules on sales division, impossibly large volume quotas, not being recognized for hard work, not being heard for needed improvements, little opportunity to advance upward, salary levels are firm and stagnant

This Company is NOT who they portray themselves to be!
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  AnonymousMay 20, 2018
Exact Sciences is not who they portray themselves to be. Management is very unprofessional and lacks integrity in a way I have never experienced. Beware and do your homework before wasting your time.
Pros
Great teammates.
Cons
Inept management, favoritism, intimidation, hostile work environment.

Revenue Cycle Associate (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIApril 30, 2018
The leadership bullies you while HR looks the other way. When I became pregnant, they were not willing to work on an accommodation for appointments or doctor's visits. I was verbally bullied by coworkers which in turn they ended up promoting.
Pros
none
Cons

Competitive back biting environment
Customer Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Madison, WisconsinApril 9, 2018
The workplace culture is sooo fake. Could not trust anyone you worked with because they were so competitive and if you made any negative comments about wrong information you were to provide to the callers, you would be "talked to".
Pros
Up and coming company, at that time
Cons
A rip off to Seniors and the disabled on Medicare and Medicad

Great culture
Professional Medical Representative (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIMarch 27, 2018
The culture was great. You really felt accomplished about helping patients get screened for colorectal cancer. Every day is different depending on the accounts you are scheduled to visit.

Wonderful management, dynamic with endless opportunity
Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Current Employee) –  Madison WIFebruary 5, 2018
I couldn't have asked for a better job fresh out of college. There is so much room to grow within the company, and not just within your specific department. Exact is a company that believes in promoting from within, and if you don't yet have the qualifications for the position you are hoping to move up to, they go to great lengths to provide you with the tools/education necessary.
There are no interdepartmental barriers- when one department is struggling or swamped, you will find higher management clearing their schedules to help out.
The supervisors are fantastic. Any time I ever had an issue with someone, whether it be a coworker or someone in a higher role than myself, there is an open door HR policy with no repercussions for coming to them with issues.
Overall, I cannot speak highly enough of this company. It's growing fast, and the benefits are amazing.

Great small company

Exact Sciences has a very good small company culture. It provided me with experience in IVD devices that will be very valuable in my future career endeavors.

Management needs help
prefer not to say (Current Employee) –  Madison, WINovember 14, 2017
Management doesn't seem to have a firm grasp on the direction of the company nor their team members. The HR department is a joke.
The atmosphere/workplace culture is wonderful. I enjoyed all the friendly and helpful staff in my department.The team meetings and company meetings are amazing.
Pros
Training is excellent/benefits
Cons
when it comes to personal life and how to accommodate or assist with life struggle

Poor company
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Madison, WINovember 6, 2017
Poor company culture, a lot of drama within the company. They have career advancement within the company but you have to be there for years and they place people who have been there longer before their new hires.

Great work place
Provider Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Madison, WIOctober 17, 2017
Amazing company to work for. Management was the only issue where you might get told to follow one order but then one doing so, you could get railroaded and terminated for following the order you were told to follow.

Medical Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCAugust 7, 2017
Environment consistently changing as new company growths. Has some layoffs that may or may not have been needed. Some of the decisions for expansion may not be in the best interest of some of the employees. Great product and overall great company.

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

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
