    Pros

    This is an energetic and exciting company to work for. It has a real customer first attitude and a good ethical base.

    Cons

    The small size sometimes means extra hours to get everything done. IT also means an opportunity to try new things and grow your abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. Your focus on the people who make the company run is the key to continued growth.

    Pros

    Products are rock solid
    Competitive pay
    Company bends over backwards to support customers
    Good technology
    Company has integrity

    Cons

    Benefits provider (health) lacks choices
    Very little vacation time or company holidays and taking your time seems frowned upon
    Most employees work very very long hours because company is short staffed
    Very little process, company is run by email and excel
    Company work ethic is very different in UK than US.
    One or two employees in very key areas
    Company thinks too short term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to grow to the next level you will need to hire more employees because your current ones are all risking burn out. Storage technology is very competitive and company needs to invest in more talent to compete with the big boys. Think bigger, the conservatism in growth is holding the company back at a key time.

    I worked at Nexsan Technologies

    Pros

    High visibility.
    Good work/life balance if you don't care about promotions.
    Chances for professional growth

    Cons

    Compensation below industry average.
    Lack of established procedures to allow for product quality.
    Cronyism .
    Extra hours are not being compensated.
    The amount of hours worked are extremely more important that the actual work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the promotion process to make it about skills and results, instead of personal preference.
