    Nominum is an intelligent, ethical company with solid products and a healthy culture.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsBase products are rock-solid. Newer endeavors show promise. Engineering culture is first-rate: collaborative, respectful, and flexible, with shared goals and minimal bureaucracy.

    ConsMistakes made by former CEO caused some disappointing setbacks a couple of years ago, but the company has made great strides since then and is well on the road to recovery.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wonderful place to work, so long as you are safe from the new pointy-haired managers

    Senior QA Engineer (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsWith few exceptions coworkers are incredibly great people to work with; fun, smart, kind, helpful.
    A very relaxed atmosphere where you can be a real person AND do your job.
    Everyone has a chance to contribute.

    ConsNewer management has no depth. They are incapable of accurately judging employee skill and contribution, rewarding those who play politics but don't actually do work, while punishing those who do good work but don't play politics.
    Claims of career advancement not backed up; no promotion opportunities, no career advancement plans or otherwise, just more work.
    QA is incredibly understaffed and overworked, with no real plan of attracting and keeping good talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe new vision for the company itself is great, but new technical management is driving talent away while trying to hire buzzword generating MBAs rather than good talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people to work with, had lots of fun.

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsWork/Life balance was great. Was able to work from home some days out of the week to avoid commute/traffic as well as be able to run lunch time errands easier. Gained breadth of knowledge from interacting with several teams.

    ConsLength of commute was a factor. Previous senior management was too involved in daily operational tasks. Saw better chance of career advancement elsewhere.
