    I worked at National Corporate Research

    Pros

    The culture was great. People were hardworking, approachable, down to earth, and team oriented. They value employees, take time to train them, and make them feel welcome. Folks were also professional. It was a great place to work and as a result I am still in contact with people I used to work with.

    Cons

    I left only because I realized the work wasn't for me, but this was NOT a reflection of the company. They train you, work with you to be sure you have it right, and have people ready to help as needed. Because the people and culture were so great, I didn't want to leave. I just happened to have had a different unexpected opportunity come up that was more in alignment with my long-term career goals. I enjoyed it here!

    Advice to Management

    I really liked their mindset and the way they valued employees and made them feel prepared, welcome, and able to apply themselves and succeed.

    I worked at National Corporate Research (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff. Clean office. Free coffee.

    Cons

    Add me to the “fired without warning” crowd. Considering that HR knew nothing about this—or claimed they didn’t—fifteen minutes before the meeting, either something is very fishy or it’s more proof of the disorganization mentioned by others.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly whatever racket they are running is working for them so, good luck with that?

    I worked at National Corporate Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get your very own desk.

    Cons

    I worked at NCR, now known as Cogency Global, for about 4 years. At the time they wanted to rename NCR so everyone would know what we did. They came up with Cogency Global. That basically summarizes the brilliant minds at NCR. My manager worked from home in Missouri. We worked in Delaware so the entire department spent hours a day on their cell phones doing nothing. It’s not bad if you want a job that passes the time...

    Advice to Management

    Skip level meetings are important. Also, get rid of do-nothing managers. Sadly, the problems start at the top.

    I worked at National Corporate Research for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are a "yes-man", you will grow. You will get a compensation of your desire, you will have other opportunities within in the company, you will get a title that you desire. But, only if you're a yes-man. Employees are great to work with. Everybody is friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    If you're not a "yes-man", this company will be difficult for you. If you're a critical thinker, this company is not for you. If you are able to think outside the box, this company is not for you. If you are all of these, the management labels you as "negative". Because you're able to think for yourself, they are afraid your thoughts and ideas will hinder other employees to conform into the system. They are looking for...

    Advice to Management

    Don't take thing personally. Management has a way of taking things personally if you don't participate in company's activities, or say "no". Stop micromanaging. Trust your employees that they are doing what they are suppose to be doing. Don't offer, "work from home", "ability to grow" if its only for the selective people ("yes-man"s only). Be mindful of your employees. Think in their shoes. Take risks--think different....

    I have been working at National Corporate Research full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Your coworkers within the team are great, the salary is reasonable. Hours are great, and flexible with issues that may arise.

    Cons

    Management is poor and doesn't like to truly hear what is wrong. They need to re-evaluate the morale issues that take place.

    Advice to Management

    The management encourages open door policy but shuts it down immediately. They don't want to hear the actual issues, they prefer to sweep it all under the rug.

    I worked at National Corporate Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have frequent office parties - monthly birthday celebrations, new hire lunches, a Halloween party where everyone dresses up, International Day, etc. The benefits are good, and they give yearly raises and end-of-year bonuses. It's a 35-hour work week, and you are rarely asked to work overtime.

    Cons

    The company is completely disorganized, and upper management doesn't get along. Job descriptions have no meaning. Get ready to be bogged down with tasks that keep you from doing what you were hired to do. You are always under pressure to do more with less. Managers are promoted due to favoritism, not ability. Minor mistakes are held over your head as a threat. Don't let the "no layoff policy" fool you, they...

    Cannot think of any pros.

    Cons

    Horrible team management, low salary, no room for advancement, no one seems to really know what they are doing within the company.

    Place more emphasis into understanding why people will want to work here.

    great people, small office environment, very much a family-like vibe.

    very illusive and vague training expectations. over inflated titles.

    learn to align your needs that you may be able to provide a clearer, bench-markable expectation to new employees.

    Pros

    Pay was good to start out, benefits seemed to be good too, location was convenient in, some training by coworkers

    Cons

    The level of accountability is high with minimal training. I learned turnover was very high with entry-level jobs there once I was hired, this became a very stressful work environment. I wasn't given a job description when I was given my new hire paperwork and management was never around to answer questions or came off to be too judgmental. They'll tell you you're doing great one day and let you go the next day. I...

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people, be available to your employees and don't judge them. Hold everyone to the same standard, if one person makes a mistake show the other person who makes the same how to fix it. Hold your employees accountable for their judgmental attitudes.
