I worked at NRC (National Research Corporation) full-time for more than a year

Pros

Nice building, both inside and out, free parking if they have room for you, otherwise they pay for a parking garage, close to university.

Cons

A revolving door, 70% employee turnover in one year. Dishonest managers. Fired 8 people one day because their insurance costs went up. They don't pay you for unused vacation when you leave so use it up first!

    Pros

    Amazing coworkers and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay structure seems to reflect the market in Lincoln, NE, but is not competitive for its branch offices in other major cities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your employees. Move at a slower pace. Don't bite off more than you can chew.

    I worked at NRC (National Research Corporation) full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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