    I have been working at NC4 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of autonomy, you are free to chase whoever you want in whatever industry you prefer. You'll have a lot of latitude.

    Cons

    General lack of focus, things change so frequently it's hard to know how to approach the market, message is constantly changing, too "executive forward" ...

    I have been working at NC4 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Flexible schedules, including some opportunities to work remotely - Structured bonus program - Regular pay increases (assuming good performance) - Opportunities to get involved in various different aspects of the company, if desired - Growing company means opportunities for advancement, if desired - Keep on top of events going on around the world, if you are a news junkie - Small company feel, which means you can get to know coworkers and managers pretty well - Reasonable expectations, easy to stand out if you go above and beyond baseline expectations - Comfortable dress code (rarely have to wear formal business attire) - Little bureaucracy and fast movement on priority projects - Motivated sales and management teams - Continuous focus on improving employee satisfaction and comfort in the workplace - Stocked kitchen - Not a contractor job, meaning you don't have to fear for your job as contracts expire - Intel work without the hassle (no SCIF) - Analysts are empowered to make a lot of decisions at the lowest level based on consultation of existing guidelines, context, and experience

    Cons

    - Some positions require holiday/weekend work on a regular basis - 12 hour shifts for analysts (but only work average of 15 days a month) - 24/7 operation means many starting positions are on the night shift - At times stressful due to workload - Some coworkers you will only ever interact with digitally - Desired growth position is not always readily available - Small company environment means slow movement and competition for resources on some projects

    I worked at NC4 full-time

    Pros

    Karie Wohlgemuth was incredible to work with, I loved the team. I had clear direction and training and I produced some of my best technical copy work here. I was treated fairly and respectfully the entire time I was here.

    Cons

    This didn't turn out to be as creativity-focused as I wanted, so I left, but there were still some creative copy opportunities

    Work is exciting and rewarding as NC4 has revolutionized many niche areas to become the market leader in several verticals of security. Co-workers are devoted to improving the products and company, and there is a sense of camaraderie to help each other and clients. Reasonable work/life balance is also a definite pro. Company has taken an aggressive push forward in several areas. Other previous technological innovations are also coming to fruition and generating solid market traction. Company has always had ethical values and attracted intelligent, thoughtful people. Benefits are very solid - definitely well represents company values and care for its employees.

    Cons

    Technological resources could be improved to improve efficiency in all departments. Could use more company team building events and gatherings. Some roles wear one too many hats, and it would be better to hire additional people to increase productivity and responsiveness.
