    Pros

    Very nice office space. Main HQ is Oakland and NY. Open to flexible work schedule and working remotely (may not apply to all departments) Company recently acquired by Infor, which will likely lead to many new opportunities Competitive salaries

    Cons

    Long days due to collaboration with India and Europe regions No 401K matching

    Pros

    The supply chain is a complex process that is moving to the cloud. GT Nexus is clearly ahead. There will be a few winners but not that many due to the network effect. Supply chain is complex, value is clear. It is the best technology infrastructure in the market, many to many in the cloud.

    Cons

    Company is still working on getting its acts together from the merger with TradeCard.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out dead wood and get the company on its mission.

    I worked at GT Nexus full-time

    Pros

    Many bright and knowledgeable people. Competitive Pay.

    Cons

    Senior management very inflexible considering the company very young. Some senior managers hanging on to cash out their stock options and fairly useless when it comes to supporting the people they manage. Very closed-minded mentality when it comes to looking at new ways.

    Advice to Management

    Start a 360 review process to allow employees to provide feedback on their managers.

    I worked at GT Nexus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with - at some point the idea was that they would want to hire smart people and then teach them if need be. At the time I was hired management was accessible and they had lots of people that stayed with the company for a long time

    Cons

    The aspirations of the company was to go public, and I've heard the talk about we are going public in about a year to a year and a half. So not sure what will happen.

    Pros

    The people are wicked smart and have a genuine passion for what they are doing. Smart technology...GT Nexus was cloud-based in the late 90s. Growing global company - privately held.

    Cons

    There is no 401k match (but you do get stock options at hire).

    Pros

    Nothing here to make you want to stay. Management is rude and demanding. Since merger, GT Nexus employees treated like garbage

    Cons

    Accepting a job to a comany that was once innovative and now status quo is the norm. Salaries and promotions are no where near competitive

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, better pay, for God's sake match the 401k, and stop with the forced overtime

    Pros

    Great people, many long term employees (10+ years), shows that there are reasons to stay at GT Nexus

    Cons

    Company needs better office culture. Some areas are like a morgue during the day.

    Advice to Management

    Management should interact more with employees to provide a more engaging environment.

    I have been working at GT Nexus full-time

    Pros

    Different departments in different offices will have different experiences at GT Nexus... As a software developer in the NYC office, I find that I have a lot of autonomy, freedom, room to make my own place and space. The technology is constantly updating--yes there's a lot of legacy code, but there's also a lot of new technology always being used for new projects. You're able to work on all parts of the system and all sorts of different applications so you're unlikely to get bored. Great atmosphere, very casual, dress however you want, dev is full of incredibly smart people. Beer on tap. Social events are always things you actually want to go to.

    Cons

    It's a huge system well over a decade and a half old, so expect it to take *quite* awhile until you feel comfortable with everything. You never actually learn it all, you just learn how to learn and who to ask. It's also been (as of this writing) about 2 years since the TradeCard(NY)/GT Nexus (CA) merger, and as any merger there's still a *lot* of work to do. The upside is that it's being handled very smartly and according to a sensible timeline, the downside is that it is taking a serious amount of time to technically merge these two companies. Middle and upper management changes post-merger seems to have about settled into a groove, so the worst of that is past. You can become an expert at some parts of the system, but the hierarchy for dev is pretty flattened so if your goal is to "move up" in respect to job titles or to stop coding and become a manager (and I mean manager, not architect), then GT Nexus isn't going to be right for you.

    Advice to Management

    The company is big enough; for god's sake where is our 401K matching? The new New York office is depressing. It's very corporate, which is a shame for a company that has more of a "dot-com" culture.

    I worked at GT Nexus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked there prior to the acquisition/merger with GTNexus in the New York office, it was a great environment starting out, flexible hours, good benefits, but it didn't last long. Good work/life balance throughout.

    Cons

    Compensation including bonuses weren't that competitive, less flexible hours as time went on.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more and define policies company wide and not ad hoc by employee.
