    Nice environment for a developer. (Nurun Toronto)

    Current Employee - Senior Front End Developer in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Nurun as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    People are nice. You get healthy snacks. They have a beer cart every Fridays. You have the ability to work from home each now and then. No one works on weekends, unless you're getting into some hackaton event.
    For devs: They have automated builds, and quite a bit of the software is well documented. Still behind with unit testing on Front End, but getting there.

    Cons

    The team is large so sometimes it can get a bit bureaucratic to get some changes done. The code-base can get chaotic too when teams are this large (I'm talking about the Walmart team).
    Most computers for developers are Lenovos running Windows. They're starting to move to Macs, bit by bit, but it's mostly crappy slow Windows machines right now. I would even be happy with Linux, but IT does not want us to use Linux at Nurun Toronto.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change your company culture. Keep buying Macs. ;-)

    Pros

    Projects are well organized. Free snacks, beer cart, good parties, excellent location. Very nice and friendly people.

    Cons

    Can have a steep learning curve some times. Upper management is somewhat disconnected from people at ground level.

    Current Employee - Software Developer in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I have been working at Nurun full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent culture and many friendly people. There are some good office events and a relaxed atmosphere. Benefits are flexible and don't cost a lot. The company does some exciting projects with many different customers, and has offices worldwide, so international projects are a possibility.

    Cons

    As a backend developer, you don't get a lot of respect or visibilty because you're not doing something the customers can "see". The marketing, strategy, and front-end employees get all the love.

    I personally never felt that I fit in here, I never seemed to get into the office life like in previous jobs.

    The past few years were tough and took a toll on the company morale. It's picking up now, if business stays good it should get a lot better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to invent some magical, fanciful marketing product that no-one wants to pay for and focus on signing actual paying projects.

    I worked at Nurun full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a great group of people who are working relentlessly to really build up a great company culture - I hope they keep it up.

    Cons

    Upper management is more concerned with running the business than building up their employees. Work isn't very exciting, so as a designer, I wouldn't recommend working here if you want to do exciting work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to really learn how to best grow and empower your employees. Bring the best out of them, don't bring them down.

    Pros

    Good culture, good perks, good people.

    Cons

    Work isn't terribly interesting, clients run the show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a process down and provide that as part of the package so your employees don't get stuck in the middle.

    Pros

    Lot's of smart and great people to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    A few top executives in the Toronto office displayed very unprofessional and inappropriate behaviours. Could be hard for those who don't know how to "fit in" to the culture at large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example.
