  1. "Nexsan is fighting to return"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Nexsan Technologies full-time

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Communication to the team about the company's vision for the future would be very helpful!

    massive installed base makes it easy to get in the flow of the biz. Very honest people (highly valued).

    I worked at Nexsan Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Lots of great people who cared about how their work impacted the company.

    Activist investors ruined the culture.

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

    Pros

    The folks, especially the engineers, are great.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the management is mostly incompetent and doesn't seem to know what it is doing. And, the investors are even bigger idiots. I don't expect the company to survive.

    Advice to Management

    You consider NetApp to be your most significant competition, but all the NetApp engineers I talked with had never heard of Nexsan. That should tell you something.

    Learned a lot from my colleagues. They did not hesitate to feed you so you can keep working at your desk.

    Needs to be more career minded and groom colleagues for professional advancement.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Once the restructure is done focus on building a strong company identity and morale with the leftover employees. This would involve having a company name sign in the office lobby to start. Invest in tools and processes to make talented employees' jobs easier so they don't have to focus on band-aid methods to get their tasks completed.

    My current position is relocating and I'm looking for a new career opportunity.
