    I have been working at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time

    Pros

    People, People, People. Top to bottom, smart, extremely friendly and diverse. Employees feel highly empowered. Sporting/social events (bowling, soccer, futsal, basketball etc to name a few). Kitchen is amazingly stocked. Catered lunch on Wednesdays is awesome. Love the juiced up Macs. Location is great, access to Bart and CalTrain. Very close to freeways 101 and 280.

    Cons

    Growth pains everywhere. And too many chiefs not enough indians.

    Advice to Management

    Iterate fast, decide and push forward. Be willing to take tough yet required decisions. Don't spend too much time lobbying. Clamp down on meeting time! Way too many meetings.

    Pros

    Working with really bright people from all over the world and walks of life makes for a learning environment on several fronts. Nomis has big dreams and smart people who are passionate about getting there together. Can feel like a big family and leadership seems quite committed to assimilating new team members by engaging in and funding education and external trainings, fun outings, and happy hours. Management is receptive to feedback, client base is very strong, work life balance is respected and continuing to innovate - definitely a rare blend.

    Cons

    Hyper-growth, while exciting, it comes with challenges as it comes with some pain and takes adjusting. While the kitchen is fully stocked, lunches more than once a week would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Stay hungry, continue to lead and navigate through the obstacles that come with rapid growth. Over-communicate as change can feel turbulent while exciting. Please continue to keep that two-week shutdown intact during the holiday season, it is a cherished Nomis tradition.

    I have been working at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people at Nomis are really friendly and generally say hello. They provide lunch for their employees one day a week. Kitchen is generally stocked with snacks and food, although upkeep of the kitchen has reduced in the past few months.

    Cons

    Everything at Nomis happens behind closed doors and most people are not forthcoming/honest with their thoughts. If you don't want to deal with office politics, don't work at Nomis. There is also a clear pecking order at Nomis, so if you value intelligence over hierarchy, then Nomis is not the place for you. The people here are generally not willing to listen to someone that has a more knowledgeable opinion than them. The internet and connectivity is always down, which is sad considering Nomis claims to be a Silicon Valley tech savvy company. There is no cohesion between any of the teams and there seem to be a lot of adhoc decisions across the company. Everything happens last minute, which results in a lot of overworked and underpaid employees. Their recruiting and hiring decisions are questionable at best.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about your choices and decisions and stop rewarding heroics. Avoiding fires is better than fighting them, and I think management needs to understand this. Instead of hiring more and more people, try to understand why your employees are leaving and fix those problems first. Take the time to properly evaluate your candidates and improve your recruiting/HR department.

    I have been working at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time

    Pros

    *Taking on an interesting (if narrow) problem *Committed to growth and trying to cast off legacy structures to make that happen

    Cons

    *Too many separate and uncoordinated parts of the organization *Focus seems to be much more on an exit than on driving long-term value

    Advice to Management

    *Be realistic on whether you're a software company or a services company *Foster transparency and cooperation across silos

    I worked at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time

    Pros

    Staff is friendly and they do a good job of making it feel comfortable and home-like. Kitchen is always stocked with food, but this is propbably more of a con because it seems like the food is there to help feed those who are constantly having to work long hours just to try and stay on top of things. They pay pretty well, though they always try to start with an almost laughable low ball offer. Great pay.

    Cons

    Lack of cohesion among groups. IT infrastructure is failing often. There's no communication or clear roadmap of how the technology groups work together (IT, QA, Dev), they all just seem to do what they want regardless of if it interferes with anyone else. Project management is lacking, everything seems to happen last minute. Laughable security practices. Benefits could be better. Too much office politics, closed door meetings lead to decisions being made without the knowledgeable parties involved who can speak on whether or not that decision is feasible.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be direction in the IT department that aligns with the company's mission and values. A CIO who can work together with the other Execs and envision how technology can be best utilized and then trickle that information down to the rest of the IT staff and enforce proper prioritization and execution of those goals. Do more investigation into the groups which are losing team members to get at the root cause of the reason why people are leaving, are they over worked? Are they unsure of the direction of their team or the company as a whole? Is there proper leadership or someone just telling them what to do. Find competent managers who can properly manage their employees, it's great to be friendly, but you still need to treat them like employees and help them to better themselves as well as the company. Properly evaluate new applicants so that you hire properly qualified people, all jobs involve some degree of on the job training, but one shouldn't be learning how to do the core functions of their job when starting out.

    Pros

    There are smart, nice people working at Nomis. It's growing quickly and everyone tries their best. Schedule is flexible. It's doing some interesting and new things with data.

    Cons

    There's a fair amount of office politics. People hesitate to be bold because they are CYA. Understaffed, overworked leads to inferior product and poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Communication to company is good. Have more realistic expectations of workload. Be more responsive to employee feedback.

    Growing pains, would like more access to senior management.

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Small company with Smart people, Greater Interaction with everyone, Accessible and Transparent higher management, Convenient work hours, Relaxed work environment, Encouraging change, Diverse age, gender, and skills, Long winter break, Free snacks, Many in-house games, Plenty of recreational activities, Funds for self-learning,

    Cons

    Lack of push for innovation, Little too relaxed environment sometimes, People doing work of many people during the customer delivery periods.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage staff to attend conferences and take courses even if the employees are acting selfishly in this regard. If employees feel that the company wishes well for them, then employees will wish well for the company.

    Pros

    They have more demand than they can meet so are growing fast. Bright and driven people. Product has very impressive ROI.

    Cons

    They need to hire more quickly to avoid over-committing. They have to more quickly standardize their offering to scale.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to stay focused and not get distracted by partnerships and/or new geographies when there is so much opportunity in its current markets.

    Pros

    Fast growth and huge market potential, based on high value-add, smart, software. Great to work with VERY SMART people.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains. Need more space. Face-time with execs is too limited.

    Advice to Management

    It would be very cool if there was more empowerment where executives provide perspective and advice later on and say things like, "Did you consider this?" or, "I might have done it this way because..."
