Pros

Good co-workers, and accessable managers who are willing to teach, but you have to be pro-active and seek out answers. The culture is fairly friendly and generally inclusive, with a good work-life balance. There are slower times of the year when the hours are shorter than ususal.

Cons

There is very little training, you have to figure it out, or ask others. Often it is difficult to figure something out, and asking one person for help turns into five or six people involved and making a simple problem into an issue.

You must be very proactive in order to get ahead, there is no hand-holding here. During busy times the hours are long. There is little recognition for going above and beyond.

Sometimes cliques can develop among the less professional workers, usually the younger women who seem to get hired based on how the look or who they are friends with. Its important to stay above the fray in order to be taken seriously by management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve training and make it easier to access training from outside the company. Continue to promote from within, and give coordinators and planners guidelines and they can follow in order to move ahead in their careers. Provide optional get-togethers that are not at bars, where co-workers can get to know each other better.

    Pros

    Well known company in the advertising space. Good name to have on your resume.

    Cons

    This company is an awful place for someone to start a career. Long hours, no rewards. HR sells the position as a company for growth, but that is far from the truth. Promotions are non-existant (unless you are coming from another company) and turnover rate is extremely high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and reward hard working employees.

    NCC can be a good place to work, but difficult if you crave career growth.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and a fast-paced environment. NCC is fantastic at investing in building their own applications and tools to make day-to-day job function more efficient.

    Cons

    Lack of communication is the number one problem, followed by very low morale. You will learn a lot about media sales, but there is limited opportunity for advancement, and there is not a good incentive/bonus program for non-sales personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be better top-down communication, defined paths to success and promotion within the company and less "silo-ing" of information.
