    Pros

    Nexus has an Outstanding culture! People and family oriented. Customers satisfaction primary. Top adopter of New Cisco technologies. Good pay/fair benefits.

    Cons

    Typical cutting edge technology challenges that all great IT companies address. Sometimes slow to make decisions, but sound leadership and good support for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the culture that made Nexus great! Make sure culture does blend with Dimension Data, by assuring Nexus maintains some senior executive positions, after acquisition is finalized.

    Pros

    People were nice. Older employees duped into something called NFL (nexus for life).

    Cons

    No pay increases,bad benefits, 401K is one the worst in the industry.
    Lots of good old boy favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Retire

    Pros

    Bright engineers, nice people to work with, fun, and definitely a culture conducive to work life balance. If feels like you are working with your extended family vs. a stuffy business environment. If you are looking for a company to support ongoing training and certifications, Nexus IS is fantastic.

    Cons

    There is a big disconnect between Leadership and the workforce. Communication is non-existent, each group operates independently. For a VAR, the technology used in house is substandard.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a high priority to have a Vision, Mission Statement, and Goals that appear everywhere. On web pages, security badges, hanging on the wall. Connect with the staff - not just once a quarter...send out video messages, standardize and brand the Oracle, improve communication; give your employees something to be fired up about! Where is the innovation? Creativity?

    Pros

    This is a large company in terms of area VARs. They are professional and a great group of people. They treat their employees well and the salaries are above average.

    Cons

    Commissions are all over the place. The service department is mediocre. Installations jobs (outside of the bay area or greater LA area) are SLOW. For instance an instal that should have taken 2 months took over a year because it was in Chico, CA and the service dept didn't want to travel for the install.

    Advice to Management

    Better metrics need to be in place to improve customer satisfaction. Customer surveys should be taken on a regular basis. Most customers will not recommend Nexus.

    Pros

    The salary package and benefits were consistent with peer organizations in the Tech industry. There are multiple locations throughout the southwest US.

    Cons

    Senior management attitudes and practices emphasize punishment and retribution for constructive criticism. Management business practices are not what I've come to expect of a respectable, honest and thriving environment.

    Advice to Management

    Review management business practices and internal operations focusing on delivering with the Client in mind, not your wallet. Treat your Employees with respect and follow through with commitments your organization makes.

    Pros

    Nexus has a great company culture and prides itself in maintaining it. Lots of "off site" company events/gatherings. They promote internally, provide/promote training. Nexus adapts to industry trends with solution offerings and is a leader in several segments. Cisco - our primary manufacturer we represent - see's Nexus as they key/leading strategic partner.

    Cons

    Not sure if it's a Con - but something to be aware of - Nexus has been acquired by Dimension Data. The cultures are a great match - and there's not much overlap in customer base or territories (which is surprising) - but with any acquisition (friendly or not) nobody knows how things will end up until everything is settled.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. We are not overloaded with rules and stuffiness. For the most part, the people are great and fun loving.

    Cons

    I am feeling like there will never be an opportunity for advancement. If you are not the "hit the bar after work with the boys" type you are looked over. Hoping that this and the lack of raises issue is fixed once we become Dimension Data.

    Advice to Management

    Before you hire people from the outside, make sure that you consider current employees.

    Pros

    Good people. Great engineering support. Generally view themselves as an engineering company that also has a sales force.

    Cons

    Too much dependence on the Cisco business. Zero lead development support for sales people.

    Advice to Management

    Bring on lead development.
