I have been working at Nexus IS full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Nexus is growing at a phenomenal pace. That is clearly a result of the leadership (both old and new). The company is financially sound and very proud of it's family culture. Over the past couple of years there has been a huge focus on people and process. That has made a huge difference. A great blend of Work Hard - Play Hard people. No crazy disruptive acquisition-of-the-quarter at Nexus!

Cons

Fast pace - if you are not on top of your game or expecting to just do the status quo you might find yourself feeling outdone. All of the current challenges seem to be getting addressed and openly discussed by senior management on All Hands calls. The typical "growing pains" that successful companies experience.

Advice to Management

Never lose the culture that you have built. Keep the focus on deep Engineering and not trying to be, sell, or support everything to everyone. Maintain the conservative financial approach as the results are obvious. Continue to invest in employee individual development...especially for new managers.

    I worked at Nexus IS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has made some recent upper management changes which should help improve the situation. Great relationships with vendors, especially Cisco and EMC. Excellent internal technical resources available.

    Cons

    Management can be crass, and misogynistic. Get used to inappropriate jokes, over the top behavior, especially at large meetings. Management has a hard time listening to feedback. There's a distinct hierarchy at the organization, so opportunities may be limited depending on your position. Significant turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Good start, but need to reach outside the current structure to improve morale and team cohesion. Clean house - this isn't the 80's.
