    I worked at Nextlabs full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    everyone is helping everyone and no politics with-in team. products are matured enough and customer base is increasing year by year.

    Cons

    Career growth is little bit of concern due to resources constraint. Imbalance between Engineering and QA team sometimes creates chaos but everyone is overloaded (Hey its still a start-up). If upper management creates hierarchy in the team then it would help career growth to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Give chance to existing team members to grow than hiring new ones.

      I worked at Nextlabs full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Very unique product and Zero competitors in this space. If you are an investor, I would keep an eye out for this company. In the past 13 years the company has gained an enormous number of patents and also built strategic partnerships with SAP , IBM , SIEMENS , MICROSOFT etc ( All these don’t come overnight 13 years rightfully spent)

      Cons

      Management should involve the employees at all levels to make them feel they are part of the success and failures. It is important to establish the employee trust to better the workplace performance.

      Advice to Management

      Retaining top talent is very important, before we look out for filling new positions. Setting up realistic goals and having supporting resources is key for success.

      Pros

      Except CEO incredible team. Wickedly smart people, extremely helpful, and strong sense of team because of common enemy.

      Cons

      VC's are attracted to successful companies, which is why NextLabs doesn't have any in over 13 years: Career opportunities: ZERO - Exceptional performers haven't been promoted in years Compensation and Benefits: 20-25% under market, lured with promises that are not kept Work/Life Balance: None - Work like a dog without any upside Senior Management: Doesn't exist. Everybody is a minion to the CEO who belives he knows...

      Pros

      First of all, it's really sad that the negative reviews are petty and so apparent they were/are not happy for whatever the reason may be. What is hard to understand is if someone is so unhappy with their work situation, why not leave and find a happy home? No one is being forced to stay. The company has been rebuilding and these past few months, have shown dramatic improvements. The Sales team is unbelievable and have...

      Cons

      Speed up the process of hiring and replacing positions to keep up with the growth the Sales team is bringing forward.

      Advice to Management

      Acknowledge those key employees that have been there through tough times and continue to work hard and have put their heart and soul to support the success of the company.

      Pros

      Great product, proven CEO, strong channel and solid sales organization. This company is turning the corner, big time. New talent is shaking things up in a good way. The excitement is definitely building.

      Cons

      Best early stage company no one has ever heard. The message simply has not gotten out. Sorry- we can't put bunny ears on your teenagers photo feed; but NextLabs can deliver real value for real companies.

      Advice to Management

      Don't worry about the few disgruntled employees on Glassdoor. They are probably part of the problem not the solution.

      Pros

      Great team of people in every office. Everyone is approachable, but they are over worked and way underpaid. The truth is that MORALE IS LOW!

      Cons

      Don't be fooled by the recent influx of 5 star reviews, HR and top management are pushing new hires to write A+ reviews. The truth about the firm is that THE COMPANY WASN'T ABLE TO MAKE THE APRIL 30, 2017 PAYROLL! The company announced it on pay day in "Hey, you might have noticed that there wasn't a deposit in your account this morning" kind of way. We had to wait until May 9th to get paid once the CEO secured a personal...

      People, if they are there much longer

      Cons

      They just laid off the entire Marketing team. BIG RED FLAG! I wake up every morning thinking whether I have a job or not. For the few people left, they are still working us like dogs. But for what?? Why am I still here? Oh yeah...still waiting for an offer to leave already. All the smart people are gone.

      Advice to Management

      Leave! The company outlook looks dim.
