I worked at NorthPointe Resources
Pros – good work life balance, generous PTO, overall friendly atmosphere, lot of opportunities to expand professionally (if you have a degree), ability to serve those in need
Cons – PAY!, could be a cleaner environment, major lack of communication at times, some senior management members are flat out lazy and set a bad precedent, lack of organization, little issues turn into ongoing issues because no one takes charge and takes care of things, lack of implementation
Advice to Senior Management – When issues arise, take care of them and move on - no need to rehash everything over and over again.

I worked at NorthPointe Resources full-time
Pros – The consumers (clients) are by far the best part of this job. Of course they present some challenges, but they will make you laugh everyday. In some departments, there is a good work/ life balance and it is pretty easy to work flexible hours or take time off when needed.
Cons – Extremely high insurance costs due to employees excessively using (abusing) insurance programs; costs get passed along to everyone else. Unbelievable micromanaging from most mid level to upper level managers. At times, it feels impossible to do your job, so much so that employees finally get to the point that they don't want to anymore. Pay is deplorable - absolutely no raises, regardless of performance. Employees are very "gossipy" and often create drama - it gets tiring trying to stay out of it. Many employees are miserable and have little drive or passion for anything - makes for a negative, uninspiring place to be everyday. Do yourself a favor - If you are going to spend eight hours of your day somewhere each day, find a workplace that attracts intelligent, thoughtful people. At NorthPointe, the loudest and/ or whiniest people end up making decisions (because supervisors are severely lacking in leadership skills), rather than things being done in an efficient, simplified way. Rather than working together, departments are often working against one another due to poor management that allows employees to create a combative working atmosphere.
Advice to Senior Management – Please learn that the incessant micromanaging drives away intelligent, capable employees. Also, take some initiative to lead your team rather than flip flopping back and forth and allowing immature, incapable employees to create messes. Communicate and work with other departments to make everyone's jobs easier - it should not be a constant fight between departments when everyone should be there to serve the consumers.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
