    I worked at Nextag

    Pros

    Overall, my experience working at Nextag was largely positive, but that is mainly due to having a truly amazing manager. The company has an amazing – but rather unutilized – office in San Mateo. The office setup fosters a friendly, open environment with lots of open space. Nextag has an awesome HR team that truly cares about their employees, and offers a generous benefits package compared to most companies these days. Their salaries are on par with industry standards, but don’t fool yourself, they’ll lowball you if they can.

    The HR team and most managers are extremely flexible with letting employees work from home when needed, and there is a good work/life balance… perhaps too good in my case. While I despise people who choose companies based on their “Silicon Valley” perks, Nextag falls into this category, offering free breakfast items (e.g. fruit, yogurt, cereals), monthly catered lunches, and happy hours. They’re not too big into professional development, but do sponsor weekly sessions on various technologies and best practices.

    For the most part, your colleagues are genuinely nice, but there are more politics at Nextag than there are in the White House. People tend to hoard information and, due to the nature of the tech industry, will often do whatever it takes to save their job come layoff time. Luckily, these folks are few and far between… I’ve made plenty of lasting connections at Nextag. Just watch your back.

    Cons

    By now you’re wondering, why did I leave? Unfortunately, Nextag is severely mismanaged. Executives often play favorites… if you’re not deemed “important” your emails go into a black hole and never see the light of day. Communication is the root of all problems at Nextag. Nobody knows anything, and those that do, don’t share or are forbidden from telling you.

    You have zero job security; management lays people off without announcing it to the company and attempts to brush them under the rug. It’s disrespectful, to say the least. Between attrition and layoffs, it’s safe to say Nextag is losing their best talent. All of the “good” folks either have left on their own or were pushed out the door. But perhaps this is hat management wanted from the beginning. Instill a fear of layoffs so people leave willingly and they don’t have to pay severance.

    Ultimately, while these frustrations led to an unhealthy work environment, there wasn’t a fit anymore. Surprisingly, there was little – or some weeks, no – work to be done. And the work completed was either changed or not used. The core problem is nobody respects your background and professional expertise...unless you’re a programmer.

    The company is a technology business. Unless you’re an engineer, consider yourself useless to the organization. This was made clear by some of the decisions made by management. If you can’t code, you better look elsewhere. If you’re an engineer, I’m sure you have an entirely different experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What’s the point… there’s no hope for Nextag. Focus on your core product and top-performing employees... if they haven't left yet.
