    I have been working at NELSON full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The firm offers a flexible work schedule which helps with work/life balance. There is a good mix of local work and national accounts that provide a variety of work experience. Some recent changes in leadership show promise for the future. The new compensation plan is a great way for employees to understand how their work contributes directly to the company's success and therefore to their ability to receive raises and bonuses more than once a year. The sharing of staff between offices helps to balance the workload. My manager listens when I make requests relating to my career goals.

    Cons

    The benefits package needs a total overhaul. The new compensation plan is untried and has some details that need to be worked out. The firm's structure doesn't align with other large firms so navigating your path can be confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to exit interviews and make changes if necessary. Make note of the other reviews shown on this site and see what changes can be made.

    Pros

    A company that did excellent work that you would be proud to have your name associated with it.

    Cons

    Stability based on the real estate market to a certain degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should pay attention to the persons doing the work and not the ones talking the loudest.
