    Pros

    There's a family environment and it's close public transport. They provide mediocre benefits.

    Cons

    It takes a lot to get fire there. The are quit a few nonaffective managers managing more nonaffective managers putting the responsibility on the bottom workers with little encouragement or payoff.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the 401k and maybe provide a way for the employee a sense of ownership other than a continued paycheck.

    Pros

    Smart People. Innovative. Flexible workplace. Customer focused. Most of the old tech has been replaced and innovation is front and center. New head of products with a strong supply chain background and is making a difference.

    Cons

    It has been challenging over the past 4 years with the merger of TradeCard and Infor acquiring. However, things are starting to head in the right direction. It's still a very big startup with some challenges and the need for a bit more structure and a little less Wild Wild West but management is focused on making it great again.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to stay focused on taking care of your employees especially those who have stuck through these tough times.

    Pros

    Some of the people (your peers) are great to work with and the location is great if you're in the East Bay. Massive ancient codebase means job security if you can stand it.

    Cons

    Salaries well below market, management sucks (both in terms of how they treat employees and in how they manage the company), no perks, lousy benefits for such a big company. Lack of communication between Oakland and New York. Lots of over-engineered "frameworks" being half-built and never usable.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings. Realize that you're competing with Silicon Valley and offer competitive salaries, benefits and perks. Improve communication. Take practical steps to improve the codebase

    Pros

    Work life balance, work from home. Great people to work with. Company was great before the merger with tradecard. Ok benefits.

    Cons

    Horrendous politics. If you were pre merger tradecard you are ok and in the club. If you were pre merger GT Nexus, forget about being noticed. All the executives from GT Nexus left the company after the merger, leaving tradecard management in place. Do not work here unless you are desperate and like politics.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and take a good look at your management.

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

    Pros

    - work life balance, due to slow work pace.
    - interesting to work with some Engineering folks in NY office.

    Cons

    After changing jobs I realized the downside of spending 4+ years of my career at this company. Initially just after college it was exiting. But after 2+ years I realized that there was not much technically I could grow. The work culture is slow, engineering management seems to be living in the past. All dependent on a few foreign workers. It's more of a outsourcing culture. Very little to gain. Some of my seniors used to call this Y2K culture. Management dominates these foreign workers and these workers are happy the way they are treated. I was fortunate to move out. Concerned about the fresh young engineers that join this group.

    Advice to Management

    Wish there is someone who can change the culture. It seems the current management does not have what it takes to make this transition happen. Seems like they are more trying to secure their jobs at every opportunity they get.
