    Great work environment, rewarding, little room for advancement/job opportunities.

    Forensic Services Unit Intern (Former Employee) Alexandria, VA

    ProsSupervisors were great and very knowledgeable, helpful at all times and very dedicated to their work. Good learning experience for honing interviewing skills and somewhat-investigative skills. Very rewarding as far as the kind of work you are doing (finding missing children)

    ConsJob postings were a "formality," for supervisors knew who they were hiring before posting the job. They typically hired friends and past associates, disregarding the hard-working interns who had spent months to years putting in unpaid work and time for an opportunity at a paid position. Very few interns are ever hired here. Very discouraging.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstill in your employees the need to expand job opportunities to the younger generation, particularly those who put hundreds of unpaid hours into working your internships.

    Consultant's Perspective

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe organization's mission to serve families and their children, under the difficult and sometimes tragic circumstances, also shines through in their commitment to staff. I have found management to be supportive of subordinate staff in word and deed.

    ConsRecent upper managemenr changes have had a positive effect, one hopes to see more of the same, as relationships can drive decision making.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEveryone shares the same passion - to help missing and exploited children. People are passionate about their jobs. The management is supportive and encouraging. They are loyal to their employees. The new CEO, John Ryan, has done an amazing job bringing up the moral and he continues to an excellent job.

    ConsThere are some politics at NCMEC, but you get that any where you work.

    Passion is King

    Supervisor (Current Employee) Alexandria, VA

    ProsThe staff is passionate about the mission of the organization. They come from all over the country to specifically take a position with NCMEC. Most of senior management have been there for many years.

    ConsThe organization is a bit secretive and exclusive. It appears that they can do this as a private agency operating with public and private funding.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management would benefit from accepting outside perspectives rather than making their own rules and expecting the world to live by their rules. It would help to train staff to work independently and to promote a truly harmonious work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It is who you know....and senior management does not have a spine

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe mission and people that work at NCMEC are amazing; you can not find a place more dedicated to a worthy cause

    ConsSenior Management and Leadership....allow horrible behavior and management styles to run ranpid througout the organization. VERY political, if you know the right people you can do what ever you want and get away with behavior that others lose their job over

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some integerity, a spine and make the organizational culture one to be proud of

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
