Pros

From my experience, and the info I've gathered from other employees, it seems that NTI pays more than most other places for most of the positions within the company. The company has been steadily growing and expanding over the last 20 years with most of the growth taking place over the last 3-5 years. Many of the people tend to work in isolation so that could be a positive or a negative depending on your level of social abilities and desires. In being a small company, most employees wear multiple hats so there is always new things to learn and understand.

Cons

The company is run by the original owner and he creates a very harsh and abrasive work environment. He frequently screams at people with profanity and makes sexual-oriented remarks toward many women. Most of the processes and procedures in place were adequate for a 10 person company but don't scale to the 100+ that the company now has. Most rules are archaic and subject to verbal amendment at any time. Time off is minimal and often requires doctor's notes. Cell phones can't be brought into the building. The owner micro-manages all aspects of the company and many people report directly to him. The lack of hierarchical structure shows in the ad-hoc day to day operaitons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Step back from micro managing, respect employees, trust employees, hire true managers, delegate duties sensibly, update internal processes away from writing everything on paper (this is 2009!!).

    Pros

    Environment is great for learning on the fly if you are an independent worker. Very intelligent co-workers but they don't work well with others. Extremely generous bonus plan if the company is profitable.

    Cons

    Hard to get raises, employment agreement is nuts, very difficult to get reimbursed for expenses on time, the agreement you have accepting the job will not hold unless you have it in writing, not enough communication between owners and staff, and company is currently laying off workers in Cleveland.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good salary (that's the only good thing i can think of.... Offering a generous package is the President's trick to absorb suckers into his trap)

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, no opportunity to grow your career, extreme level of micro-management by the company president, no meetings and no chances of having a fair mutual discussion with the president, unfair and inflexible and disrespectful company policies that violates your personal freedom and self-esteem at work and you will be yelled and cursed at by the president for any slight deviations from those strict and kind of crazy policies (e.g. no cell phones, deadlines for submitting request to take days off, etc.), poor communication flow within the company, no appreciation for what you accomplished. High employee turn-over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just retire and leave the company and hire a professional CEO to run the company
