    I worked at National Society of Leadership and Success full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The mission of the Society applies every day to each employee and the jobs they do. It is a small office, so each day is different, with the potential to learn more than you did the day before. The staff is dedicated, hard working, self reliant, innovative and team oriented. Truly some of the best people I've ever worked with in my career. They are young and bright and welcoming. The work is challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    You must be self disciplined and able to prioritize. There is so much to be done, and not enough hours in the day. Not necessarily a con, just a statement of fact. With so much innovation and new ideas, it is easy to be caught up in the "shiny new object", and put the bread and butter on the back burner.

    Advice to Management

    Let your eagles soar - your hiring practices are strong and so are your employees!

    I worked at National Society of Leadership and Success as an intern

    Pros

    You get a ton of support from the National office. they are there to help you in anything you need.

    Cons

    There is not a whole lot of room for working full time after being an intern.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it is hard to get feedback after you are finished being an Intern. Maybe help the interns know what they did well and didn't do well

    I worked at National Society of Leadership and Success full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - A lot of the people who work there are bright, motivated, and a lot of fun. - Many of the clients are an absolute joy to work with. - The program does positively impact the lives of many members.

    Cons

    - They'll tell you everything is metricized. They'll beat it into your brain that your whole performance review is based entirely on your numbers. When those numbers don't measure up - even when it's really, truly, absolutely not your fault - you're punished. Easy solution: Do whatever you can to hit your numbers, right? - HA! Wrong. Because it doesn't matter if you hit your numbers or not. If management doesn't like you, if you've spoken up one too many times, if you're frustrated because it seems like everything's stacked against you, even if you use all of your time off or don't go to the gym with your colleagues every day - you're marked as having a bad attitude, you're "not fitting into the company culture," you're just not good enough for them. - There's no real opportunity for growth. Yeah, if you bust your butt hard enough you'll get a "Senior" added to the front of your title, but that's about it. They'll tell you in interviews that there are all kinds of possibilities to move around within the company. Dream on. It's not happening. - They're hemorrhaging money because management doesn't know what they're doing, but they refuse to admit or acknowledge any fault on their part, so when people quit/are fired, they're suddenly to blame for all of the company's problems. - They will undervalue and underpay you. There's no two ways about it. You will never get the money you deserve from this company. They'll give you a poor base salary but promise you the moon and stars - "Commission! Bonus! You'll do great!" - but don't fall for it. If you wind up with accounts that were started wrong, or screwed up by someone before you, it's all on you. If you can't fix it, it's held against you, even if you beg for help and escalate it all the way up to the president of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Own your mistakes. Deliver on your promises to provide career paths for those who have given their all. Listen to your employees instead of dismissing their feedback.

    I have been working at National Society of Leadership and Success full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It has a great founder and chief visionary (Gary Tuerack) and President (Charles Knippen) who have big hearts but have high standards for the performance of their employees. They are smart entrepreneurs with a lot of ambition and drive to grow the organization because they really want to make a positive impact in the world. The organization supports a healthy work/life balance but with a stronger emphasis on work. They are google like. Offer free snacks and provides discounts to local gym membership which comes with extra time to go to the gym during lunch time. Company really wants each employee to be happy and grow professionally.

    Cons

    You have to earn the trust before you are given more responsibilities. You have to go above and beyond your role if you want to be promoted. Compensation can be challenging, you must demonstrate your value.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce expectations to avoid burnout. People work so hard to hit metrics and once hit them, it is expected that they beat them next year.
