    I have been working at Nakisa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great smart people all seeing and working together for success, support each other and clients, new and existing. Really listen to learn and advance the Canadian and global innovation. Work hard and have fun is found at Nakisa. Growing with much success and energy to grow smart and not to forget ethics, trust and team work!

    Cons

    Growing and lots to learn - open mind and don't let other corporate experiences shade what is possible. Benefits plan could be better but isn't there always room for improvement.
    Nice people -- really truly seeing and wanting the best for each other -- not a con but a true difference - they say it and mean it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and continue to trust and grow your client base, employees and innovations!
