    Former Employee - Software Developer in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at Nakisa full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The R&D department had some pretty solid, albeit overworked leaders. Despite the constant stress they kept level heads. There were some nice people working there overall. They have the occasional really fun events, like Halloween.

    Cons

    You're surrounded by a lot of overworked developers. While I was there, I spent all too much time working on bugs and working on customer installations rather than on actual development. There was little growth as a developer, the architecture was complex beast. There were turbulent periods where people got fired or started leaving in droves due to dissatisfaction.

    CEO, I was never entirely sure what to make of. On one hand, his speeches were engaging, he seemed approachable and open-minded, but seemed his perfectionism was at the detriment of those working under him. Also heard some disheartening 'quotes' (transmitted through the grapevine) such as "I don't care if it's your wedding day or any day, if you have work to do you'll do it."

    HR felt like it wasn't there to protect the interests of the employees. The CEO's sister's in charge so you never feel entirely comfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Qualities of a Great CEO

    A great CEO leads. They lead the team by creating a strong culture among the troops and continually fueling a vibrant “esprit de corps.” The great ones are both cheerleaders and task masters, only most never use those terms to describe their function.

    A great CEO is clear. They define and communicate the strategy and create buy-in for this strategy along the way among the team members. … and they provide employees with many chances to weigh in with their views. Employees are not left wondering about the strategy because they can repeat the strategy

    A great CEO gets their hands dirty. … They are right there, balancing the priorities and inspiring their team to help win the next opportunity. … They are quick to sort out mistakes in a “blameless autopsy” so that success may be achieved the next time.

    A great CEO is strategic. They know what to do and how to do it. He or she is able to look right, look left and look out over time to see the moves and countermoves of the competition and react accordingly.

    A great CEO knows when they aren’t a great CEO. They know what they’re good at – and when it isn’t being a CEO. They’re willing to seek others more able than themselves to take the helm.

    I’ll add a few more

    A great CEO knows how to listen, rewards loyalty and hard work, knows how to listen, offers adequate benefits, knows how to listen…

    Opposite of these Qualities - That is the Nakisa CEO
