    Pros

    NG maintained a training budget that employees could use with their manager's approval. Training required a 1 year commitment to remain with NG.

    Cons

    Almost impossible to advance out of a billable position. Once they had you brining in a check from the customer, they did not want you to leave for another position within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees to develop full careers instead of thinking of them purely as a piece of a contract vehicle.

    Great Company to work for, but too big to get recognized.

    Pros

    Good benefits, Salary, time off and great treatment from HR and Management . . . . . . . . .

    Cons

    Company is too big and managers cannot keep up with employees performance. Sometimes they relied in other subcontractors to decide your performance. They have a lot of regular employees and not enough managers to measure your performance sometimes there is no managers on site. ! ! ! ! ! !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch closely your talent, because smaller companies are taking them from you.
