    I have been working at Nakisa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Located in heart of downtown, the best about Nakisa is its people. Most people are smart, courteous, helpful and joy to work with. Fast pace dynamic work environment that provides learning opportunities but brings in instability as everything is changing constantly from product to processes to customers.

    Cons

    Below average benefits. Not much compensation for challenging tasks and extra work.
    Nothing much for employees to stick long term with company.

    Advice to Management

    You have some good products and serious potential of sales. So encourage your sales department to employ aggressive strategy for getting customers.
    Take care of your key people at least who had given decades to company. Invest in their careers (by providing training/courses) and in their future (provide some retirement funds, group plans etc.)

    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!

    Pros

    I can't thing of a single pros comment.seriously not one... so sad...

    Cons

    Stop lying with these posts. You're not fooling anyone we work with you and know it's all lies.

    Advice to Management

    You should have sold to SAP when they made you that offer... but pride got in the way so they went to the competition. Now you're kicking yourselves. Instead of trying to portray something that you're not to the outside world; take a look at us... we are not happy... and it's your fault. Brothers and sisters and nephews and cousins etc shouldn't be running your company. Trust professionals that know how to do it.

    I worked at Nakisa (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers but management a bit difficult of approach.

    Cons

    It is expected to work a lot sometimes without a good vision (and leadership).
    People do come and go a lot, that tells a lot about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Help the employees (especially when it's the first job) with their career path. Maybe have a clearer vision and leadership.
