Great people, poor company leadership
Nerd (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJune 7, 2017
Tons of potential to be a great company but there is no real company leadership. Every 2 years the company has layoffs due to poor business model and unwillingness to learn from past mistakes.

Top talent is leaving due to lack of opportunities or recognition. "Just bill more" attitude.

A company with amazing culture
Executive Assistant to the CEO (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, MNDecember 2, 2015
This is a very fun and culturally stimulating place to work. There can be a huge disconnect between the upper management and employees from time which drives morale low but it is still an amazing place to be.

Great people, great culture
Previous Employee (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJanuary 27, 2014
The Nerdery is a wonderful place to be for developers. There is no lacking in perks, with free cereal, snacks, soda, ability to bring your dog in every day, and if you're lucky enough to be around for the Holiday party, you're in for a treat.

Sales team operates on a much tighter ship, some of the perks allotted to developers don't seem as accessible to this team. Work from home is not an amenity they receive (currently).

Overall, young company still learning how to walk, but very impressive people.
Pros
Relaxed environment, dogs everywhere, great people
Cons
Questionable sales structure, consistent change

Not a bad place to start out
Admin (Former Employee) –  MinneapolisMay 8, 2013
It's a "good ole boys" club. On the surface the culture looks fantastic. It doesn't take long to notice that the wrong people have been put into positions of authority.
