    I worked at Nurun as a contractor (less than a year)

    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.

    Lots of great people that really seem to care about each other and the work that they produce.

    Cons

    Sometimes working with older enterprise tech is a bit of a drag, but there are still plenty of good challenges.

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

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

    Work life balance can be achieved here, if it's important to you. Nurun SF is full of talented, unique and inspiring individuals who work hard and play hard. The pay and benefits are comparable to other boutique agencies in SF.

    Cons

    A growing team from a small core group has certainly caused a few pains as senior employees get used to a larger group of coworkers and stricter standards that come with being acquired by a multi-national company. Little to no training, they throw you right in the ring. It's pretty sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer opportunities for on the job education (many employees do not know of the $600 stipend for education/training each year) and foster an environment of growth and acceptance between senior and jr. employees.

    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.

    Continue your shift to product and services. Hire within that field and let mar/com go the way of the dodo.
