    I have been working at Nexant full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some smart and experienced consultants who are a pleasure to work with, the work is interesting (when you can actually get to it after the layers of bureaucracy, some but not all of which is client-driven), and the salary and benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Poor intra-organizational communication; inadequate management that equates process and bureaucracy with management; spotty hiring and recruitment practices that have resulted in the hiring and subsequent promotion of people who are tempermentally unqualified to manage others; limited administrative support; and a senior executive suite that is virtually invisible to much of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management in the company needs to be in more regular touch with staff and it needs to convey a clear vision for the company, while at the same time showing the relevance of disparate areas of the company to this vision.
