Good people, boring job

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

Pros-The best thing about Nakisa is the people who work there. They are friendly and help you a lot.
- Very friendly, hand in code managers. Chris & Albert are great managers to work with. They will support their team 100%.
- The location is down town Montreal, McGill Collage.

Cons- More work in XML, XSL than Java. As a software developer you may expect to work with Java but mostly it is configuration.
- It is more like a family business. The head of HR is CEO's sister, Head of IT, QA, Finance & Support is CEO's brother. Working with him is hard & he doesn't have knowledge for technical decisions that he make.
- No pension plan.
- Limited insurance.
- I would only recommend this company for the first job.

Advice to Senior ManagementI don't think your brother has enough knowledge for the decisions he make.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Breakfast is included, BUT always check the expiry dates! You will find many fantastic co-workers there, BUT hurry up, on average every week one of them… Cons: The company is totally SAP dependent (partner), and since SAP acquired their competitor (SuccessFactor), they couldn't make enough money! Almost all the key people in the… Advice to Senior Management: You don't need to give jobs to all your relatives… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    All in all, very satisfied with my experience at Nakisa.

    Software Developer (Former Employee)

    I worked at Nakisa full-time for more than a year


    Pros: The location is very convenient (downtown Montreal). There was a fun, friendly and supportive atmosphere in the office. My direct managers were knowledgeable, supportive and helpful.… Cons: There was not much hard core Java involved in daily work. As a developer I was looking for more Java work than XML, XSL or… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
