    I worked at NCU (Northcentral University) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting software challenges Flexible schedule Free food every third Thursday and birthday cakes for everyone

    Cons

    Culture is not comparable to a tech companies like Intel, Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc... Culture is somewhere between a start-up and an online software company. Human Resources is really uptight if you miss an extra day due to an illness that you thought was going to take 3 days but took 4 instead. Depending on who you're working with, they may treat you like a child if you're younger than them On more... than one occasion, coworkers could be heard berating other coworkers or talking poorly about certain teams because "you're not as good as others that could be in your position." I stopped using headphones to listen to music and instead used them just to avoid hearing arguments between certain team members in the aisle next to my aisle. Didn't feel very inclusive to younger team members.

    Advice to Management

    Don't throw into employees' faces what you've done for them as if you gave them the world and they should worship you and beg for forgiveness when things go wrong. Don't let people vent or talk down to other employees in front of everyone. It's unprofessional and creates a toxic culture.
