    I have been working at NIC full-time

    Pros

    Growing company - great people - amazing medical benefits.

    Cons

    Because the company is growing rapidly - some jobs require 50+ hours/week on a regular basis. Some areas (HR for example) aren't keeping up with the growth of the company. The HR processes in place are more akin to a start-up company than what is needed to retain our technical talent.

    Advice to Management

    Consider creating job families for growth within job areas - mature your HR functions in general. Yearly reviews are less than credible - no consistency between managers or directors - no common processes or goals.

    I have been working at NIC full-time

    Pros

    Learned a lot about software development and was a springboard for my career, liked working with state agencies on a variety of interesting projects, cool downtown office space, good benefits, nice to have all federal holidays off.

    Cons

    The QA process was non existent and left the PM's to manage angry clients which was frustrating, it seemed like the folks in Kansas were reaping all the monetary benefits of the hard work at the state portals, our GM had us work furiously to get a "free to the state" online business registration application live so she could get a $50k bonus for getting the state to agree to a $1 transaction fee increase.

    I have been working at NIC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is challenging without being stressful, the company has tons of experience to draw on, and offices actually share expertise and ideas.

    Cons

    Salaries are good but only about the middle-of-the-road for the web industry. Working with government can sometimes be infuriatingly slow. The company is not great at thought leadership around web tech and devices.

    Advice to Management

    Update the intranet. Provide a better more reliable technical infrastructure, and invest in more mobile devices or offer a BYOD program; we need to look like we're leading-edge in tech.


  10. Best place to start and grow your career.

    Cons

    Growing pains can cause stress (good problem to have)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share vision with employees - when the employees understand the vision - they can truly own it and help make it happen

    Pros

    Great leadership and corporate culture. Individual offices have a lot of autonomy so you have to make sure you get in with a good group.

    Cons

    Only client is State government so the process can move slowly and it can get very monotonous. Its not the most interesting client to work with at times.
