    "Transition close to complete - good place to work"

    I have been working at National CineMedia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Colorado company, good culture, great work/life balance,

    NCM has gone through a transition period. The transition has been fine for employees that at least meet management’s expectations. A significant component of the transition has been turning over both the under performers and the individuals that do not believe in the values of NCM.

    NCM feels very professional, well-structured and cares about the people that deserve to be here. I am confident I will be supported from within to employ the right people.

    I manage a team that is respected and valued by me and NCM. It is because we are professional, live up to NCM values, and do not tolerate employees that under-perform and/or display unprofessional behavior.

    When you have the type of turnover we have had, you create bitterness and animosity that results in the desire to throw stones. A consequence to NCM has been a backlash of negative comments. The motivation for a certain population of the negative reviews aren’t out there to help you learn about NCM. The negativity should not be disregarded but don’t simply rely on reviews. Don’t hesitate to contact an NCM employee through a professional network to inquire.

    As you interview, you are encouraged to know and discuss your value.

    Leadership is focused on creating even better working conditions.

    Leadership effectively communicates expectations.

    Optimistic environment.

    NCM will find ways to thrive for years to come.

    Cons

    The NCM business is becoming more dynamic. There is a need for employees to better understand the business.

    Pros

    Aside from some really poor members of management the rest of the team members are great people.
    Cool industry with good perks.
    Great Benefits and company matching.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of work completion without approval of over-time.
    No internal growth.
    Lower end of expected/fair pay grades.
    High turn over rate and dissolving morality.
    Poor management; Micro managing, lack of communication, unrealistic expectations, and discrimination.

    I have been working at National CineMedia full-time

    Pros

    - Good work-life environment - like an extra half-day off each month in exchange for donating to the company charity pool.
    - Decent benefits - pretty typical and nothing special there, but not bad.
    - Good working environment - obviously the specific manager here makes the biggest difference, but it's clear that the new CEO sees good things for the company and is working to achieve those.

    Cons

    - It's clear that some of the long-timers here are disenchanted with their jobs - but I think it's mostly that those long-timers are ready for a change and need to go make it.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the transparency about the new strategies and what that means for the company.

    I have been working at National CineMedia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty laid back work environment as far as when you come in, what you wear, etc. Movie pass is great.

    Cons

    Management is very top heavy, some managers only have 2 direct reports. Terrible benefits - health insurance is expensive and doesn't have great coverage. Only 2 weeks of vacation until you hit 5 years with the company. Raises are very minimal, they don't even cover inflation. A lot of undeserving people get promotions and awards.

    Advice to Management

    Reward good employees, give more PTO.

    Variety of activity, can work independently if trust is there.

    Work life balance, interest in wellness, great co-workers who really work together as a team, work is challenging, but manageable, nice benefits like charity half-day and free movie passes

    If anything, I just wish the main office was in Denver instead of the suburbs.

    I love the interaction and the respect for ideas and collaboration. Really great things are happening.

    Pros

    Charity Half Days each month, free movie tickets, great people to work with

    Cons

    If you work in Sales Operations, you will get stuck there. They hire managers from the outside and do not pay well

    Advice to Management

    Learn about key positions in the lower levels of Sales Operations. Some are key and should be valued higher. Losing a few of these employees at the same time would be disastrous
