    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!

    We would hope that someone who stays in an organization for five years stays for more reasons than “good exposure”. We are proud of what we do, how we do it, and for what we have to offer our team... More

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

    Pros

    I have experienced a wide variety of company types throughout my career. Working at Nakisa has so far proven to be a novel work environment for me. Every diverse member of the team brings a level of dedication to their work that I find quite inspiring. We work very hard, but the culture makes for a lovely workplace.

    Cons

    Resources. We are presently in a very important period of transition which has prompted a hiring surge. We need reinforcements. Once all the roles are finally filled, it will be easier to develop an efficient workflow.

    Advice to Management

    I hope that the recruitment process will continue with a discerning lens, despite the urgency to hire. We need genuine team players to help us grow, not just talented individuals.

    Managers are supportive and transparent.
    Hard/good work is always noticed and appreciated.
    Friendly work environment.
    Awesome location.
    Many clients among Fortune 500 companies.
    Free breakfast and snacks all day.

    Direction and company vision is sometimes blurry and unclear.

    Pros

    Great challenges
    Great opportunities of:
        Personal growth
        Profesional Growth
    Great culture and mindset!

    Fairly new management team - Dynamic - are committed to make their department evolve, communicate with each other and focusing on shifting the direction of "the boat" from the previous Glassdoor comments.

    If you don't want to be part of building something that can become great and put some effort to make it happen, then don't come, unless you are willing to take the challenge.

    Cons

    Need time to change some anchored habits/defensive mode from the "history", but will get there.

    In the end it takes time and it is normal

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging the team to give ideas, allowing them to "shine" and to be part of the change!
