    Pros

    The people (rank and file) are awesome.

    Cons

    So many changes the past few years, including top leadership. Apparently the company has been acquired yet again so maybe things have changed?

    Benefits provider (health) lacks choices Very little vacation time or company holidays and taking your time seems frowned upon Most employees work very very long hours because company is short staffed Very little process, company is run by email and excel Company work ethic is very different in UK than US.

    Good Company and Team - Unfortunate financial situation

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at the company, although only a year. There was a lot to learn and a good support team. The projects kept me engaged and the staff at the office and remote office were friendly and helpful. My skillset did improve to carry over to other careers.

    Cons

    The financial situation was unknown, so there was a dark cloud always over the company as to what will happen next. Multiple layoffs had hit the company before I was there so moral was a bit low. The financial situation did affect my job and others before I could fully enjoy my job and company so that was disappointing. My location became very crowded as they consolidated many offices in one to save money, and didn't have good planning for some upgrades they needed to perform.

    Nexsan is fighting to return

    Pros

    The new management is working hard to return the company to profitability, and is making the tough decisions this requires. The new Unity system looks unique in the marketplace and customers seem to be enthusiastic. The company's emergence out of Imation was an incredibly positive move, as they knew nothing about the data center, storage, or IT. Customers and partners are very loyal.

    Cons

    There have been a series of RIFs on that road to profitability that has been difficult, and resources are limited in certain areas because of it.

    Pros

    - Great people in every department, caring managers - Very exciting new product technology - Departments are supportive of each other, good collaboration - Free snacks & drinks - Work/Life balance

    Cons

    - Constantly changing processes - Conflicting goals vary from quarter to quarter, so projects you worked hard on get scrapped - Not enough resources for good employees to do their jobs to full potential - IT is stretched too thin so there was lots of email issues and internet outages (not their fault) - Layoffs and slashed budgets so everyone constantly scrambles to stay ahead of workloads - Absolutely ZERO corporate culture or identity. Office is bland and still has most of the decor and signage from the previous company in the building.
