    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.

    I worked at Nakisa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice employees, most of the employees at the company are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    There is a full list of cons about Nakisa. From the point that you need to use refurbished equipment i3 to the lack of Management and honesty between Managers with all their direct employees.
    The High managers don't care about your specializations and how you can grow professionally. The only think they care is how much money they can make out of your skills.
    Be aware that getting the Job doesn't mean that you will stay after 3 months, they can simply turn around and qualify you as a "Not a match".

    Advice to Management

    Set career goals properly for your employees and be honest once hiring and telling what is possible to achieve on their position within the company

    Pros

    Even though I am part of the most recent hires at Nakisa, it feels like I've been working there for much longer! Amazing co-workers and exciting projects certainly contributed to making me get onboard and enjoy the ride.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons to share. Nakisa seems to be the best well-kept secret in Montreal so the onus is on us to change that.

    I worked at Nakisa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are great. When I was working there, there were employees that came from around the globe, which made for a fantastic environment.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover and no job security. The moment you would start earning more money, you would be replaced by a new graduate. Pretty ironic, when you consider that one of their products focuses on talent management. Definitely not something they apply at this company.

    Pros

    Great enterprise culture
    Adequate work-life balance
    Comprehensive management regarding time-off
    Some great talent within the company
    Downtown Montreal
    Product has the potential to grow and improve drastically

    Cons

    Breakfast is free, but bagels and bread needs to be refreshed more often.
    The company lacks structure, planning and control over projects and changes in the enterprise.
    R&D is king of the mountain there and restrain the proper expansion of the company.
    Major employees retention problems, they need to keep their talent.
    Training can be improved

    Advice to Management

    Put a proper structure and foundation in place, and stick to it.
    Change the culture, define your company mission and base all your decisions on core values.
    Spend more on R&D, they are restraining your growth capacity (better resources, not always go for the cheap labor).
    Be demanding and apply a tighter control and quality over operations.
    Align departments better, so they work together properly.
