    Pros

    Very smart people
    Cool product
    Lunch 2x per week

    Cons

    Nexmo is still very much a startup figuring out its way. Communication between teams can sometimes be lacking.

    I have been working at Nexmo full-time

    Pros

    No pro's that I can think of. This company was one of the worst I have worked at.

    Cons

    I am not sure why anyone would want to work here TBH.
    They don't provide lunch/dinner like other startups do
    They don't have monthly or quarterly get togethers like other startups do
    You won't become wealthy working here. They are no longer a Pre-IPO Startup. Vonage owns them now.

    I worked at Nexmo full-time

    Pros

    Product & technology are solid and consistently outshine competitors. You will hear very nice words from customers and business partners. It is proud to be part of a company that leads a category.

    Impressive growth of Revenue and customer base since inception. Leadership team members are experienced and really know the sector well. Product and solution innovation is an everyday thing. A lot of A-players and out-achievers within the organization.

    People & Culture - supportive and innovative. Not just talking about senior management here. From C-level execs to staff engineers, product managers, marketing, admin, and so on, everyone really goes the extra mile to improve business performances where they can. Everyone strives to deliver the best possible outcomes in his or her functional area while helping others succeed in theirs as well.

    Passion - Fun, open, and encouraging culture. Flat organizational structure. Employees get to own projects and take initiatives.

    International and multicultural - besides the san francisco HQ nexmo has offices in London, Hong Kong and Singapore. Employees interact with one another across teams and across regions.

    Perks - Benefits, generous 401k match, paid holidays. Fun events all year long, Food & beverages, ping pong table....

    Cons

    Perhaps need more meeting rooms in the SF office. When it gets busy it can cause unnecessary stress for meet organizers if we're running out of space... also sometimes there're noises coming from upstairs neighbors...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring on great people and promote the stellar culture. Scale hard! :) Here's to the many successes to come.

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

    Pros

    Had tons of potential at one point. Some nice brand name customers. Office is set up to have fun. Some very talented people but many driven out.

    Cons

    Chasing competitors. Losing key deals. Staff turnover is scary. No sales leadership. Sales culture is lacking. Office fun stuff is used but people are tentative about it. Not enough sync between marketing and sales. HR is weird and came from big co's like MSFT and Google - this is a lean start-up so many alignment issues. Can only live off of the main customers for so long. Mandatory reading for all employees is "Leadership and Self-Deception, Getting out of the box" - also weird.

    Advice to Management

    Go on vaca and think about Plan B and implement quickly. Get out of your own box, don't over think things. Have more fun. Don't project, stop it with the book.
