    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The interview was easy
    There are often team building parties with drinks and beer
    There are many students and we have rooms to relax with games
    Close to subway station

    Cons

    The salary slowly grows
    HR make you pass a lot of psychological tests both before you are hired and after, about once every half a year
    Top managers are very arrogant people
    My manager told me and my colleague to cheat on Elance Java test to get good results. I guess that the short positive reviews are also cheating and were written by HR
    Some corporate rules and culture are stupid

    Advice to Management

    Make corporate culture less strange. That "roleplaying" on teambuilding parties is not fun for everyone

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

    Pros

    They hire students without experience and provide them with basic training. Several times a year they throw big corporate parties. There is basic sports equipment in the floor kitchens.

    Cons

    The company culture is too pervasive and weird. The HRs call the company Fairytale Kingdom and the black money cash salary is called "happiness". Although I heard that they pay legally now. One of my colleagues had to communicate with a client as two persons so that the company can charge them twice. Overtimes are frequent but you can drink beer at work. When a person wants to quit, the HRs and upper management talk aggressively and may even threaten that they will endanger your future employment opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Pay some respect to your clients and your stuff.
