    Pros

    Great work environment (besides Big Brother) - NRC mainly employees the "fresh-out-of-college" crowd so a majority of the associates are in their mid-twenties. They always have 2 beers on tap in the breakroom, which makes for a fun Friday afternoon "Beer:30" session with colleagues from different departments. If you're really good at outside sales, you can make six figures in a few years.

    Cons

    An obvious "corporate" structure where entry-level associates benefit not by intelligence, but by their willingness to brown nose the higher-ups. Everything about the NRC entry-level sales program screams "entry-level" so if you are a recent college grad who is outgoing and looking for a low-paying, no experience needed opportunity (and happen to be in the Lincoln area), look no further.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to truly appreciate your associates. Treat associates like people more so than numbers.

    Non-conducive to a work/life balance.

    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 Management

    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.
