Better than startup or many Hi-Tech
Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 14, 2019
In the SF Bay Area there are multitudes of high-tech companies. Although this is a software consultancy, its focus is on energy efficiency and smart grids, helping society to have better use of electricity and energy. That's a mission I can support. There is an approach here that views people as humans and part of a team. In hi-tech, there's a crazy non-sustainable attitude to try till you die, the dark side of the hustle culture. No thanks to that. Nexant recognizes that employees have families and responsibilities and for the most part people really get to enjoy their vacation without having to work and you have time to do things that matter - outside of work. The CEO supports the friendly side of HR initiatives - like staffing up before a project starts - instead of burning out your star performers. There's a very nice suite of benefits, bonuses, and an open culture. Why do you suppose the tech giants have an average tenure of 1 or 2 years? Nexant has 5+ years. That speaks volumes. Nexant truly is divers; in a lot of hi-tech, there's a lack of diversity and agism is rampant. Just a personal observation. Not here. They walk what they preach.
trying for the best always for the company AND for the employees
can't think of any - still growing and there are inherent growing pains with any company
