    I worked at NLC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They hire anyone at all.

    Cons

    I responded to a message on CareerBuilder that made the job sound very appealing. They said that they're in sales and marketing, their office is growing very fast and there's plenty of room for advancement. But here's what they don't tell you. No matter what title they give you, you will working 8-12 hours per day being a door to door salesman. THERE IS NO MINIMUM WAGE. Sometimes during the training, I can't even have lunch until 4:00 PM.

    I have been working at NLC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Promotions are purely from within, and completely based on merit. No politics, not based on seniority.
    2. There is no glass ceiling, always opportunities for growth.
    3. Fun company culture! Team bonding weekly with many opportunities to travel!

    Cons

    1. You have to be willing to work hard! You get what you put into this business.
    2. Everyone has to start entry-level, no matter what experience they have gained in the past.

    I have been working at NLC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The position gives lots of room for advancement. The company participates in raising funds and donations for charity. I am friends with everyone in the office, it's like a family oriented place to be. Opportunity for travel is great!

    Cons

    This position is definitely not for someone looking to come and go from a "job" but rather someone looking for a career. One must have a strong work ethic to do well.

    Current Employee - Senior Account Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at NLC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    All employees start at the entry level position and promotions are based on performance not seniority (or politics).

    Great team environment! I come to work with all my friends every day and we have many events and fundraisers. I know some of these people will be business partners of mine in the future because we all have one goal and work together.

    Performance based pay is a huge plus for me because I know my hard work is rewarded, where as someone else who isn't putting in the effort will not deserve the same as me. I've always liked to be acknowledged for what I accomplish and I get that at NLC.

    Opportunity is there for the taking to anyone who wants to come grab it. It's hard to find a company that has grown as much as NLC has in a down economy. I love that no one has ever been laid off so I feel stability here.

    Cons

    Hard work on the front end of the position. Anyone who's really putting in for their career won't think twice about the effort needed, but employee mindsets do not fit well here. NLC is not looking for anyone who wants to clock in and clock out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's a very high pressure job, you are not paid for training, and most of the time you are making under minimum wage (they will call you an independent contractor in order to get around minimum wage laws). I was miserable the whole time, and the same with most of my coworkers. but what about all the positive reviews here? They were all written by the Owner and I know this for a fact.

    Pros

    And amazing team, lots of room for self development, lots of opportunity for advancement, and you can make as much as you want to make, you just need to work hard. But you will get rewarded for hard work, and isn't that the american dream?

    Cons

    You have to be confident in yourself, and not take no's personally. It consists of putting yourself out there in front of businesses and things may get awkward or uncomfortable, and sometimes you may feel like a "salesman", but it's all about your attitude!

    Pros

    NLC Inc. has been an amazing experience since I joined the team about a month ago. From day one, I shadowed one of the senior level sales managers and learned what a great opportunity this position entails. He showed me that with hard work, ambition and organization you can honestly achieve your goals. Through this job, I have met so many inspiring people and I really look forward to what NLC Inc. can teach me.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that not enough people have taken advantage of this amazing opportunity.
