    Pros

    NCQA is a vibrant place to work, the people are energetic and diverse, and the company is trying to use creative ways to encourage work/life balance such as offering very progressive flex schedules and telecommuting arrangements. The office is also well located and is a physically comfortable place to work.

    Cons

    It is not evident that any real thought is put into comprehensive and company-wide project management therefore 55 to 65 hour work weeks are the norm at NCQA and anything less puts you behind on your unending and crushing workload. Sadly, falling behind inspires nothing but contempt from management, who themselves are clocking in their 80th hour for the week.

    Unfortunately all the posters depicting the virtues of respect, trust, and flexibility accomplish absolutely nothing other than to rub salt in the wounds of passersby, from certain departments, who are retreating to their desk after their third beating of the day. I'm from one of those departments, but to be fair, my direct supervisor usually acknowledges good work and constructively responds to less than stellar performance, even when their manager treats them like garbage.

    Aside from workload issues, interactions with upper management in some departments can be downright ugly. They all have their own agendas and their own opinions on everything from the interpretation of company policy to the exact order of presentation slides. Most people are allocated to several high-profile projects which involve multiple members of upper management, so a lot of their time is spent appeasing multiple opinions to get work done.

    Advice to Management

    Take project management seriously and either take the happy posters down or actually enforce the values they reflect. Also learn to embrace positive reinforcement. Provide a consistent message.
