    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    High Potential, Cool Technology Suffers from Mismanagement

    I worked at Nexidia

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Nexidia full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are some of the smartest in the biz. It has first-rate innovative technology

    Cons

    Where to start? With managment that leads by screaming at people? With management who believes micro-managing is the way to achieve results and who insist on new/ re-vamped products based on knee-jerk reactions -- and then change the marketing strategy every 3 months? With the seemingly neverending trickle of layoffs over the last year, each round touted as a strategic re-alignment of personnel? With not replacing people who leave (voluntarily or otherwise), just spreading the work around? With the fact that there's very little chance of being promoted?

    It's not good over here and it's not getting better. Nexidia calls itself a mature start-up. By that it means it survived the dot-com bust. But it's still a venture capital firm.

    As I said above, it has first rate technology no one else has, but is consistantly beaten out by the competition. And it shouldn't be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At this point I have no idea what could turn the company around. Maybe the best thing is sell and try to save as many personnel as possible.
