I have been working at NRC (National Research Corporation) full-time (more than an year)

Pros

-Good work-life balance
-Relaxed work environment
-No micro-management
-Decent compensation
-good working relationships

Cons

-Constant reorganization at mid-level management and above creates unstable work environment
-401k match is a joke at .25 % company match
-Service is often stretched very thin with too much work, not enough associates to complete it, and hiring freezes on top of that
-the annual associate engagement survey seems less aimed at actually improving work lives and more geared towards appeasing associates with "small wins"
-propriety software that supports the biggest portion of business is outdated (created 15-20 years ago) and senior leadership is in denial about the needed systems overhaul to stay competitive as a business
-complete lack of formal training program for service associates; managers and supervisors with already full plates have to create and implement training programs for new associates

Advice to ManagementAdvice

NRC needs to step into the 21st century, technology-wise, and provide associates with adequate tools to do their job in terms of software used to create client deliverables.

    I have been working at NRC (National Research Corporation) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can pave your own way, and hard work pays off in new projects and positions. Can make the job what you want. If you prefer work/life balance you can find ways to work limited hours and work from home often. If you are ambitious you can put in more hours and it seems to generally pay off.

    Cons

    Location of headquarters in midwest may not be desirable to some. Pay and benefits are slightly below industry averages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in keeping key senior leaders. There is not a deep bench of top performing middle and senior managers so it is key to keep the few that you have.
