    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.

    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

    - New company initiatives (A lot of potential growth)
    - Interesting and challenging projects
    - Free breakfast and coffee everyday

    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.
