    Certain state offices of NIC are better than others...but not the PA office. Horrible.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAppeared to be an up and coming operation within PA...and appeared to be a good company on the onset.

    ConsToo many management changes, people who came in after I was hired (within a few days) were micromanagers to the HILT and would fire/demote people without cause. The corporate office might be nice, but the Pa office is HORRIBLE. My advice ? Look elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep a close watch on your state hubs/territories. Watch for the number of people leaving in a short period of time (whether by their own choice or not). There's more to what's going on with certain hubs/offices than meets the eye.

    Great for many years, sliding now, hopefully great again soon

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat coworkers. Get in & get the job done type of people for the most part.

    ConsManagement is being brought in without having first gone through the trenches which means they have no idea what the people doing the work are actually doing or having to deal with day to day. The original idea of the company was promotion from within you start at the bottom & work up, that is no longer an option, the career paths are no longer used. The national conferences are only for management personnel now, the grunts are no longer needed to go & learn new things or present new ideas to the whole company, which takes away from where this company began - 2 guys in a basement working their butts off to make it great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people doing the work. They know what the company needs to survive. Talk to them. Tell them what is going on and where things stand.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great environment, compelling business model and terrific coworkers.

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsThe work is challenging without being stressful, the company has tons of experience to draw on, and offices actually share expertise and ideas.

    ConsSalaries are good but only about the middle-of-the-road for the web industry. Working with government can sometimes be infuriatingly slow. The company is not great at thought leadership around web tech and devices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate the intranet. Provide a better more reliable technical infrastructure, and invest in more mobile devices or offer a BYOD program; we need to look like we're leading-edge in tech.

    It's not too bad, but it could be better

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe potential to make a big impact with a small team. Room for advancement in some career tracts if you want to move around the country.

    ConsManagement likes to delegate to middle management and work on advancing their own careers. Lots of bosses, not many leaders. Lots of talk of "company culture" but it's put on the back burner to make shareholders happy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTurn your bosses into leaders.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Best place to start and grow your career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat growth - strong collaboration - good people to work with

    ConsGrowing pains can cause stress (good problem to have)

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to share vision with employees - when the employees understand the vision - they can truly own it and help make it happen
