3. Good HR staff organizing fun events
4. Good environment for internationals
5. Co-workers are generally nice, friendly and smart
6. Excellent PTO time. Ok work-life balance for most employees.

Cons

New stategy seems to be good but it needs time to prove that.
3. Benefits other than PTO are not that great.
4. Low brand name recognition
5. Stock options are not attractive at all
6. People coming in and learving all the time. High turn-over rate

    I worked at Nextag full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Still a fairly profitable business; uses current technologies; very numbers / statistics driven with an infrastructure that embraces experimentation and reat-ime feedback

    Cons

    Draconian management style of the senior leadership; dog-eat-dog culture that leads to fast burnout or being thrown under the proverbial bus. Lip service given to training - one senior leader was heard saying that training is unacceptable and that technologists should be hired already knowing current technologies! Revenue model is being completely overhauled as a reaction to Google's competitive practices - there's little indication that the bet will be successful in the long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you surround yourself with identical cutthroat personalities, you lose perspective and you end up with demoralized, afraid, and/or cutthroat personnel. In other words, you get what you model.
