I worked at Neal R. Gross & Company full-time (More than a year)
From day one, you are given numerous responsibilities that ultimately prepare you for the working world. You are able to see how the public sector works while working in the private sector. Management is friendly and is very accomodating (ex: sickness, days off, administrative help). The beauty of the job is that your workload is never the same and each day you can expect to be doing something new. Also, the pay is GREAT coming directly out of college. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!! The office is located right in the heart of Logan Circle!
The main con regarding this job is the lack of upward mobility. Also, some holidays are working days for employees. Working with most of our clients in the public sector, it seems unusual for employees to have to work when most government employees have off.
Advice to Management
Allow more room for growth in the company. Organize a tier structure in which employees have incentive to do better and earn more compensation for the work they are doing. Maybe implement an evaluation period where positive feedback may be given back to the employees. All in all, keep up the good work.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Neal R. Gross & Company.
Interview was a two-step process. President was not in the first time so I was interviewed by the second in command. He asked me about my summer and what I had been doing, then he told me about the position and finally said that the President would be back in the following week and they would be in touch about a second interview. I had to call to follow up but I was invited in for a second interview, this time with the President. Got there at the scheduled appointment time, but no dice, President still not there. Had the exact same interview a second time with second in command, he offered me the job on the spot.
