    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nexmo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They lucked into hiring some good people. Office location is good I guess. Options as part of comp package was nice. Working from home on occasion. CEO was present and a genuinely nice guy.

    Cons

    Wow where to begin - Targets were set with no basis in reality, though other teams could and often did change their targets to be more achieveable. Zero support from product team who took it upon themselves to build things that could not be sold instead of things we actually needed. Lack of accountability, especially from upper management or those that had been with the company a long time. Culture destroyed by Vonage. Lots of fighting between teams, with targets set for teams that were mutually exclusive. Lack of transparency. Pay "raises" were insulting. Very limited career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If you're wondering why people are leaving, or you're having difficulty hiring quality - look at your compensation first. Don't hire 3 people when 1 will do. Do better market research for new products. Set targets with some flexibility in case the market moves (it will). Hold yourselves accountable to the same standard that you hold your team members.
