    Pros

    I worked with the research team. The work is really exciting and everything is very flexible so you enjoy while working.

    Cons

    The con may be that the number of interns working is very less. In the research team I was the only one working, though I really enjoyed working.

    Compensation salaries are pretty good Good technology and software Casual work attire Free drinks and sometimes lunch

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to express opinions without fear of being yelled at. Everyone in the organization has value, not just executive team

    Pros

    Fast growing, opportunities for advancement and to make a name for yourself abound. You get to work with some extremely passionate and intelligent people. Amazing benefits, the company pays extremely well.

    Cons

    Communication breaks down a lot. But that seems to happen often at small organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate what you are working on. Employees want to know what they are working for.

    I have been working at Nexidia full-time

    Pros

    -Gain great experience working with some of the latest technologies. -The usually compensate you well when working hard and seem to notice. -They are willing to send you to company paid Training (as long as it fits within your job description)

    Cons

    -Everything seems to be made a "high priority" and "urgent" so it can be very stress-full at times and hard to prioritize workloads. -There often seems to be a serious disconnect somewhere with communication down to employees and getting the right information necessary to do your job right the first time.

    Advice to Management

    Set customer expectations better on project timelines and allow more time internally to get things done. A lot of unnecessary hours are put in staying late when it may not always be as critical as it seems.

    Pros

    Nexidia has a great product and is the thought leader in speech analytics.

    Cons

    You would think a company at this stage of growth would be promoting from within. This was never the case while I was there. Nexidia suffers greatly from cronyism. If you're not in the "in crowd" you're treated like an outsider.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training and developing your employees. Stop rolling out unfinished products based on knee-jerk reactions. Provide an annual review process that is actually meaningful and not thrown together as an afterthought or hurried through because there are more important issues on your plate.

    Pros

    leading edge technology that is truly the thought leader in its space in the market.

    Cons

    Sr. Management does not communicate downward about company objectives, whether or not those objectives are being met. Environment is one of fear, you could be publicly ostracized if your idea is not accepted. Employee satisfaction is not even on the senior team's radar, let alone a priority. Employees are beginning to realize there are other places to work that will treat them better and turnover is becoming as issue.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees ARE your company and that you cannot repeatedly treat people poorly and expect them to stick around. The total cost of turnover is not something this company can afford given its poor sales record to date. Arrogance of the management team has cost Nexidia employees, potential employees, customers and partners, probably resulting in significant revenue loss. Acknowledge your emotional intelligence shortcomings and hire people who will fill those gaps. Do not be threatened by those who can build relationships with employees, partners and customers - use them to the company's benefit. Do not protect old friends when they are incompetent.
