    I worked at NCC Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The DC office really appreciates that you are doing what is essentially data entry all day long and strives to make you feel appreciated and to make the office environment lighthearted and fun. They encourage you to take breaks to walk around the office in order to give your legs a little movement and your eyes a break from the computer. You have lots of opportunities for overtime. And the salary is competitive as far as temp work goes. Every Wednesday was Bagel Wednesday and management brought in bagels for the office. Occasionally, bonuses were charged with the temps too.

    Cons

    You are doing data entry all day long so you end up sitting for long periods of time staring at spread sheets.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management did a great job. They managed to make temporary employees feel appreciated and valued. That's no small feat.

    Pros

    This is the best company I have worked for. The office is considered by many to be the best office in the country. It is unfortunate that some on here make up lies instead of actually working.

    Cons

    High volume, but that can be considered a good thing in sales. (lots of opportunities and products to sell)

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing better technology and platforms in digital & programmatic.

    I have been working at NCC Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers, and accessable managers who are willing to teach, but you have to be pro-active and seek out answers. The culture is fairly friendly and generally inclusive, with a good work-life balance. There are slower times of the year when the hours are shorter than ususal.

    Cons

    There is very little training, you have to figure it out, or ask others. Often it is difficult to figure something out, and asking one person for help turns into five or six people involved and making a simple problem into an issue.

    You must be very proactive in order to get ahead, there is no hand-holding here. During busy times the hours are long. There is little recognition for going above and beyond.

    Sometimes cliques can develop among the less professional workers, usually the younger women who seem to get hired based on how the look or who they are friends with. Its important to stay above the fray in order to be taken seriously by management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve training and make it easier to access training from outside the company. Continue to promote from within, and give coordinators and planners guidelines and they can follow in order to move ahead in their careers. Provide optional get-togethers that are not at bars, where co-workers can get to know each other better.
