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

ProsThe 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementPay 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
