    I worked at Nexant full-time

    Pros

    nice people, very helpful, no office politics, everybody works as a team and people are always eager to take responsibility. you end up making friends for lifetime.
    products and technology is latest and management gives you lot of opportunity to try new stuff rather than just following some static path. you can suggest new ways of doing things and are all heard with open mind

    Cons

    no communication, may be lacking vision or confused as to that they want.
    average increments and not even half of the bonus what is mentioned on letter ever paid.
    all the processes are confused right from hr to It, its all haphazard..

    Advice to Management

    invest in people...

    I worked at Nexant full-time

    Pros

    Fast, dynamic with good perks. The food is delivered 2 times per week, long vacations

    Cons

    Company doesn't have clear directions. Management doesn't have good vision what should be done for company to succeed. They want to sell it and sell it quickly

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want to do. Find a direction and stick to the plan. Be more transparent and stop this secrecy which is just destructive and creates rumors and unhealthy atmosphere.
