Always bring Assault soldiers as EXALT covert ops, their Run N' Gun makes them always useful running both movements (That way, if you have a relay far away) and use the remaining action to both hack the relay and shoot/use Overwatch (On the hacking relays missions, of course. Even through it is still useful on the defend the computers mission).

In month 1 you can get away with mostly rookie squads. The game is very different here: you need to maximize your soldier's advantages with their loadouts. Give the good aim ones better armour and assault rifles, give the fast ones the smg and light armour, give the high will ones medikits.

Carbines are pretty solid early game.

The Line of Sight indicators (XCOM2 style) mod is also quite helpful.

Simple one but needs to be stated. If any of your soldiers are within sight of the aliens, they know the locations of all of your soldiers.
