    Pros

    -Fantastic work environment with great people
    -networking
    -skill and resume building
    -extraordinary in house mgmt.
    great office.

    Cons

    Sometimes being in Redding, away from Headquarters, was like being an amputated limb of the company. We worked really hard and I don't think it necessarily paid out the way it shouldve in the end. At points MGMT at HQ felt very shady/dishonest, and never held up to timelines and/or promises.


  2. Had a good time, sad to see company hemorrhaging

    Pros

    I enjoyed almost all of the people I worked with, and thought that in general the overall mission of the company was a good one.

    Cons

    Not enough attention paid to maintaining the product line, too many new product ventures (instead of maintaining existing products), major management missteps, and unfortunately very poor execution on some otherwise good ideas.

    Pros

    Ideology around solution is solid. Providing desktops to those that otherwise may not have them.

    Cons

    Company is mismanaged and very slow to make positive improvements or changes to product. Company is SEVERELY understaffed because of funding issues. Product is not in a position for improvement because of this issue. Company is on the verge of bankruptcy and has to find investment or a buyer ASAP.

    Advice to Management

    This company had the uncanny knack of not filling positions left vacant by departures and it ultimately caused everyone left to assume more responsibility with little direction or guidance. My advice is to stay away from NComputing 100% until they are purchased by a corporation with its' act together.

    Pros

    On the edge of technology, Good Benefits, Good Bonus Program

    Cons

    Low investment in office equipment, Stability of Executive team is lacking, High turn over, Pay/Raise structure is undefined and lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and the equipment that they need to do the job that you have asked them to do. Review employees with a purpose that includes raises and promotions

    Pros

    Flexible work policies for employees who want to work remote
    Products make a real difference for customers who need computing resources on a budget
    Small enough company where individual contribution can still make a big difference
    Large customer base with over 60K customers worldwide to build on

    Cons

    Santa Clara office is a bit quiet as it is not at full capacity
    Internal communications are sometimes challenging as employees are distributed across several worldwide locations

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals for company and employees and further reward individual contributions to retain your top talent

    Pros

    Personal growth, selfless leaders in the office I worked, good work life balance, great compensation compared to entry level jobs in the area. Management really wanted their employees to grow and would meet with you to discuss personal growth at any time.

    Cons

    Company would sometimes try to market itself in ways which were not displaying a consistent vision. Made it difficult at times. Sometimes quotas were given that were unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    When I was working there, I think that you were doing the best you could with what you have. It's not easy to lead a company so that I completely understand. I think though that it's a good idea to be honest with customers about what the technology can really accomplish and not make promises that can't be kept. Make sure to release products only when they are ready so that it prevents good accounts or new accounts to turn bad.

    Pros

    Paycheck
    Some very qualified people in the organization (whose voices are unfortunately drowned)

    Cons

    Insecure Management that
       takes decisions with no concrete information
       plays the blame game every quarter

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly so that they will stay

    Pros

    The people out of Northern California are of the highest caliber. The office is beautiful, overlooking the Sac river and Sundial bridge. The pay is pretty good for the area. The company has a great technology that helps School Districts across the nation. The company offers good benefits and on-the-job training.

    Cons

    Pressure to perform is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing great management, thanks for leading us into a positive direction.
