    I have been working at Nexient full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Talented people, challenging opportunities and a ton of room for growth. Nexient hires non-traditional and it really makes the company dynamic, it also invests heavily into training and empowering team members to be impactful.

    Cons

    No red bull in the fridge! Salaries for entry level can be on the low side but the benefits and training imo make up for it.

      Pros

      Chill environment Varied projects Good people Lots of knowledge around to learn from More high profile projects coming in at a fantastic rate

      Cons

      Low compensation No match to 401k Boot camps just put new hires on a internal project with little to no guidance It's an consulting job and that means being regularly thrown on projects that are troubled

      Thanks for sharing this feedback. You’ve highlighted some of our strengths: great environment, great people, learning opportunities and clients. You may be somewhat early in your career as a developer (I’m guessing this because you mentioned boot camps), and wishing your starting ...

      I worked at Nexient full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      They have very good client

      Cons

      Nothing seems good on team. Client is firing team members a lot couldn't catch the team and team lead fires other developers to seat on bench. I was hired as full time employee but that title is just for their will doesn't mean more on it. Took lots of payment bill from client and hire employee saying as junior developer but should work as senior developer but client expect as their payment but employee found that...

      Advice to Management

      Take feedback from every team members as well as client team members, not only with managers and only one or two tickets decide to lay off without a prior notice. There should be true and transparent while firing so that company doesn't lose good employee rather than changing employees rapidly.

      January 14, 2019CEO

      I am truly sorry it didn’t work out. I can tell you this happens very, very infrequently, and of course it’s never our goal to hire someone who can’t be successful with us. A team lead would not make the decision to terminate an employee alone. There are long talks and many factors ...

      I worked at Nexient full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Nexient is a very supportive and welcoming environment. Everyone will offer advice and support you in anyway. Where else can you get paid to learn when you're not on a project? Those who did not learn on their down time, didn't not last. Work hard and always prepare yourself for your next opportunity. What ever your background is, they will give you a chance to prove yourself. Some people claim they don't...

      Cons

      The cons are not with Nexient but with the Client. You can't predict how the contract will like or how the client treat you. It can be great, horrible, or so-so. This is an agency so you as a developer has to be adaptable and be willing to adjust. There's no hand holding or "ideal" project. You just need to learn quickly and work hard.

      Advice to Management

      You focus too heavily on Fortune 500 companies and other Top level companies. You should also have contracts from small computers for the team to work on. Teaching yourself on the bench, is not the same as learning while working for a client. You will not make alot of money from small clients but...the team gain experience and a portfolio. To say we help work on a few apps for these big companies is impressive....

      I have been working at Nexient full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Helpful co-workers and understanding for those just starting in the field to help move from formal school training into the field of software development. Quickly growing and expanding client base means opportunities for advancement and growth. Breaks to prevent code burn out, fun activities and culture of asking for help when blocked all have made my experiences here good. It is actually a joy to come to work every...

      not much pros. You will realize this company has nothing much to offer withy time.

      Cons

      The Company lacks professionalism. Its a awful and dishonest company. They mess up your paycheck and when you question it they have a attitude. I found a another position and left the company where I was treated with respect and valved as employee.
