    I worked at GT Nexus as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The software development team was very welcoming. I worked with the developer evangelist team. They were passionate about all their projects and worked hard to personalize the applications to the clients' needs.

    Cons

    I only interned for a short time, so I was not able to make as much of an impact as I would have liked.

    I worked at GT Nexus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was given the resources and autonomy to achieve my job. I was supported and encouraged by the team and executives. Overall, I enjoyed my time there very much and learned a log in addition to helping move the business forward.

    Cons

    The technology is Java/J2EE and Windows based... However, GT Nexus does have upgrade cycles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to upgrade your technology and grow your employees.

    Great Company Overall but Career Growth Challenges as well

    I have been working at GT Nexus full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    GT Nexus is a very good place to work - great people, great/savvy mgt team, great/leading technology, work from home options, etc. etc

    Cons

    Many talented people leave after a few years due to career stagnation and salary growth concerns. Some of the other reviewers mentioned that GTN offers average (at best) salaries for some fairly Sr. people - this is true. Many take a pay cut to be part of a 'dynamic growth' company but the salary + career progression never really materializes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Mgt team is very talented - quite possibly some of the best around. Please also focus on the HR component as well if you want to keep talent.

    Pros

    Some really smart people work there and take great pride in their work
    Product is ingenuous, just poorly created/implemented

    Cons

    Senior management is bloated and with limited talent.
    Buddy system keeps useless staff around
    Two companies merged a year ago, but no closer being 1 company at this time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out in senior management ranks and hire fresh blood.
    Reward key players.
    Hire quality QA staff in India.

    Pros

    High volume and 24x7 uptime requirements make for interesting technical challenges. The company invests in new technologies so there is plenty to learn.

    Cons

    Cheap when it comes to people. I saw my group lose out on good candidates because they insisted on trying to get senior people to accept lower salaries until they "prove themselves." Employee reviews were regularly several months late and the company policy when I was there was to not retroactively apply salary increases meaning you just lost out on that money. A possible IPO has been talked about for years but somehow despite being told constantly that the company was doing very well they have not been able (or willing?) to go public despite a years-long hot IPO market.

    DEGRADING & DISRESPECTFUL TONE FROM THE TOP

    I worked at GT Nexus as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you are in sales and a white male you'll do excellent at the company. You'll be compensated EXTREMELY well. If you have no moral compass and you are a jerk --- JACKPOT - you'll be successful at GT Nexus.

    Cons

    No room for advancement if you are a women, unless you wear low cut tops and tight skirts. Your salary will be low unless you are in sales. A daily 3 ring circus, no company policies, horrible management, extremely poor communication, mismanagement at every level in every department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No accountability.
    You represent the 1% which most of the World has come to hate with a passion.
    You have NO communication nor management skills.
    Your CEO is arrogant and a real jerk.
    Your CFO has anger issues and extremely moody.
    The best decision someone made was to bring in a new CFO---and my gosh a WOMAN. Maybe she can save your behinds.

    Pros

    Very smart people, always supportive and put people first. They stay ahead of the competition in vision and always have just the right amount of industry expertise needed to compete with billion dollar software companies. They have kept a pulse on the industry and are far more advanced in product than most.

    Cons

    Normal growing pains of merging two companies always tough to make sure employees are happy but they are doing a great job of trying.
