    I have been working at NexJ Systems

    Pros

    1) Very impressive technology stack - lots of advanced engineering ideas
    2) Great place to learn as a software professional, especially if you have little experience
    3) Nice location - York Mills Centre, easily accessible by GO Transit, subway, TTC buses

    Cons

    1) Work can get uninteresting quickly, depending on your role
    2) Quite a bit of bureaucracy, I think this limits creativity a lot
    3) Fairly low compensation, seems that management gets by far the biggest slice of the pie
    4) Somewhat long working hours: 9AM - 6PM. Nevertheless, they are somewhat flexible about this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much red tape! Very annoying processes affecting development operations. Please allow developers be more creative, and free to make choices as they see fit. Culture is too restrictive, management always seems to have the final say.

    I worked at NexJ Systems

    Pros

    -Benefits are given without a probation period
    -Convenient location as it is located along a GO bus route and right over top of a TTC subway stop

    Cons

    -Highly dysfunctional evironment, where senior managers are commonly heard screaming at employees and each other
    -Poor work life balance, with standard hours being 9-6, although most will work through their lunch, come in early and leave late
    -Far too many co-ops, and a very high turnover rate makes this place feel like a temporary stop to pay the bills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees with more respect, this place is bleeding people. It starts at the top with the CEO.
