    Pros

    The management is friendly, first name basis, open door policy and they have free lunch once every 2 weeks. They provide good training and have a strong knowledge base

    Cons

    People leave the company often and it can be depressing. Projects often fail. Work can get boring.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps it is time to investigate why a lot of developlment/ QA people don't stick around the company

    I have been working at Navantis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have always felt supported and that people have my back in the organization. Definitely lots of smart people around and many of the existing clients are great to work with too. Organization is not so big that it is still possible to know most of the other employees over time

    Cons

    Like any consulting company it has had its ups and downs. Has had difficulty lately retaining some good people. Needs more big and interesting projects to keep 'em.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the vision - make it relevant and accessible. Get some more solid sales and/or look at acquisition.

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

    Pros

    Paycheque, Free coffee, good people on the front lines, flexible hours. The last year had become very disheartening and difficult to keep my morale up to go in to do a good job. Leaving was such a relief.

    Cons

    No Leadership at all. Direction isn't clear. It was like what do we do to keep the lights on. Visions are never followed through. Top management gets hired, then they are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CEO and get some direction!!

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

    Pros

    - Ample opportunity to grow, gain knowledge and earn well.
    - Use of first name ensures employees are treated equally, many companies today have a flat hierarchy.
    - Growth in an organization is hugely dependent on merit.

    Cons

    it might push me out when there's a recession.

    Pros

    Very flexible place in terms of working hours. You get a very good opportunity to learn new technologies and grow with the industry. Navantis is constantly moving with the technologies and encourage you to experiment and learn.

    The working environment is very nice and very nice people. The management is always open for discussions.

    Cons

    There is a lot of people leaving and coming in the Canadian branch and when people leave they take the project knowledge with them. It is difficult for the remaining team members to continue. There is no standard way to document knowledge. A lot of projects are dependent on whats in the head of the people.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a proper knowledge management plan.
