    I have been working at National Positions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company is really wonderful and I really appreciate where I work now compared to any of my previous jobs. The energy here is phenomenal. People are into new ideas and people are really excited about the future. You will really enjoy working with the people that are all very friendly and nice. I can honestly say I am proud to be a member of the team.

    Cons

    Although there is a lot of informal training going on all the time, I would like to see more formal training sessions. That does not mean I don't think the training is excellent, there is just so much to know.

    Advice to Management

    Stay awesome. Thanks for being so approachable and always there to support us.

    Pros

    For the most part National Positions is a really great place to work. The work is interesting. Coworkers are some of my best friends. The management is team are very involved in the business and care deeply about our success as well as our clients. The dress code is pretty casual. We have fun company events and everyone is very helpful, especially when you are new

    Cons

    The work is pretty intense. Many days I look around and the day has flown by. There is really not much time other than for working.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on building out automations and other ways to make our work more efficient.

    Pros

    This company has been growing by leaps and bounds. The new building that we moved into is unbelievable. Its sad when we have to let an employee go but even pathetic when they write a negative review. The CEO is a true visionary and were doing incredible things.

    Cons

    We trust people that say they can deliver the National Positions vision. When they don't, we need to let they go. That's the hard part.

    Advice to Management

    Neep up the awesome work.

    Pros

    There are so many great things to list that it is hard to do so here. I have learnt so much here at National Positions. The company is very vested in training and mentoring the team. I have learnt so much about digital marketing, client communications and business in general. The management team is very supportive and the work environment is really fun. As the company grows I continue to see more opportunities for my own personal growth. The company is well run and very goal oriented. I feel so fortunate to work at National Positions and could not imagine working anywhere else.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work and tight deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Have more fun events like the summer party

    Overall, you can't beat the work environment and the vibe at this company. I have made so many friends at work and the people all seem to share the same values. The company hires people of very high calibre and there is a lot that you can learn from your co-workers. I have found my work at the company really enjoyable and it has been an amazing work experience.

    You have to constantly be performing at a very high level. The company does not tolerate people slacking off.

    Have more company socials and send employees to more trade shows.

    Pros

    Intelligent coworkers. Opportunity to learn SEO at a basic level. Some of the managers want good things but they get shut down.

    Cons

    Everything in here about the owner is true. Run, don't walk is it. He is impulsive and unable to handle any views other than his. Narcissist yo the core and to survive you have to coddle him

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter. Will never be heard as long as Bernard runs this company.

    Pros

    collaborative office environment, young and smart coworkers, management is super flexible and willing to hear your concerns

    Cons

    if things were managed better, or if office morale was higher, the company would be a lot more profitable

    Advice to Management

    you desperately need to boost morale around the office, and place more efficient systems into daily operations
