    Thank you for your feedback. We believe we need to listen and learn from what the employee's experience is and have no intentions on changing that.

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

    Pros

    - Colleagues and managers are very friendly, they are always willing to help you.
    - The new products platform is sophisticated and using popular new technologies.
    - HR are easy-to-reach people, very friendly and willing to help you.
    - Free breakfast, stock options.

    Cons

    Didn't find much negative aspects. If have to pick one, i would say the R&D team is too busy (because business is good), the new comers may not have many organized and systematic trainings. However they do assign a mentor to you. It would be very helpful, especially for those who want to learn more.

    Advice to Management

    I like this place. Thank you.

    Pros

    Location is great! colleagues are nice and most of them are professionals. Good salary and benefits (nobody want to work here) the best is that the HR director claims all the time how much they care about their employees.

    Cons

    Family and friends company. Reputation in the market is right: The worst company, no values. Internal politics govern in this company.
    Turnover like never seen! Terrible decisions made.

    Advice to Management

    You are not google or amazon. Executives are arrogant and they think their opinion is the only one it counts...not going anywhere with this mentality.

    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!
