    Pros

    Intelligent people thinking creatively to help clients meet their security needs in most exciting market space today. Rapidly growing, fast paced, great family environment, no strict dress code, super friendly staff. Compensation in line with position. Management is tough but fair. No sliding by here, people are held accountable.

    Cons

    The workload is very heavy and with aggressive deadlines. Additional efforts are needed to simplify and organize the training for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on more hiring, training and automation, because there are too many manual processes and insufficient resources.

    I have been working at NIKSUN full-time

    Pros

    Some of the Directors are helpful and are worth talking to from an educational stand point.

    Cons

    Too many bosses, Owner and Father constantly can't agree on business direction. Completely understaffed in every department. Constantly being pulled to do jobs in other departments without recognition for the job done or any compensation. All around negative attitude from the higher ups.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees about things instead of being hard headed about everything.

    Pros

    I really love coming into the new office. NIKSUN has an entire building to itself. We’ve also moved the entire company under one roof, which makes things easier and more efficient. We have our own cafeteria and several pantries.

    Cons

    I’ve heard that some people have a longer commute. I’d rather not have the cafeteria tv on.

    Advice to Management

    Can we get food trucks to stop by or a couple of vending machines?
