Pros

The company fully pays benefits and holds annual reviews. They have good corporate communication and community involvement. The company is growing at a fast pace and has a positive reputation within the industry.

Cons

This company does not have a good work/life balance. Average work weeks are 60-70 hours with no real reprieve. Much focus is put on 'Error-tracking' rather than positively reinforcing successes. The culture is sales-centric with little to no recognition for the relationship, client facing or service side. Wellness assistance is also not provided.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior Management needs to listen to employees. They need to staff adequately to contribute to better work/life balances.
Recognize relationship and service staff, rather than solely sales.

    Pros

    In most shops, business and technical requirements and project management are noticeably absent. Not at NRC. The software engineering section had one of the best teams I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Middle management doesn't provide as much information to the staff as they should. Some of the sales team make promises that cannot be delivered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to input from the bottom of the org chart.

    Pros

    Location, and lots of interesting people. I made a ton of friends while working at NRC. Some of them I hope to keep in touch with for many years to come.

    Cons

    Terrible management, "work hard, play hard" taken to the extreme -- alcoholism runs rampant here. Keg parties (Beer:30) on Fridays sound fun, but in reality, leads to worrisome interactions between coworkers and people working while under the influence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shifting and "reorganizing" so often. It makes people feel insecure and causes friction between colleagues.
