    Pros

    Very generous benefits. Casual dress, lots of promotional opportunities. Wellness program with free gym membership. Nice people.

    Some people who don't carry their weight. Whiners who have been there too long to know what goes on the in the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Challenge your people more - they have capacity and want to make a difference.

    Pros

    The company is highly organized and has an established client base. Training and overall corporate infrastructure exists, making the workplace a great pleasure.

    Cons

    IT resources are slightly limited. This is more of a hinderance internally as external IT needs and solutions take a higher priority.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The success thus far is a product of the fine executive management skills the "C" levels have.

    I have been working at National Student Clearinghouse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Clearinghouse offers a great working environment and robust benefits. It's a friendly atmosphere that enables employees to network with others by offering many fun employee-focused events like an annual family picnic, annual dinner, and in office events to celebrate cultures and successes. Employees are mission-driven and the services the Clearinghouse offers are meaningful.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities don't happen as frequently as they do in large organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep shifting the culture towards innovation and excellence!

    Pros

    All levels staff are committed to fulfilling the organization's mission of service to the education community. Management regularly invests in career development and training opportunities for staff. 401k match is probably best in the area, and other benefits are excellent. Casual, friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Typical growth pains for an evolving organization (e.g., some technical and staffing challenges), but that's also where opportunity is often found.

    Advice to Management

    Need to continue and improve prioritization against limited resources. It's an ongoing challenge, but definitely not unique to this organization.

    Pros

    The CEO makes the satisfaction of his employees a top priority. It is so refreshing to work for a company where they place so much focus on the satisfaction of their staff. They go above and beyond with ice cream socials, company picnics, LL Bean gift cards, recognition programs, etc. to make people feel appreciated. People actually like being at work here! It is such a wonderful work environment with a strong emphasis on work/life balance.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of a con.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice for management. I think they're doing a stellar job.

    Pros

    Great People, cool benefits, awesome culture. A place where one can work and enjoy the precious time of life. Organization is going through learning common language and slowly organization is reaching to a point that you feel it as family and not as a work place. Not sure if I can ever depart myself from this wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    Not any significant issue which is worth mentioning. Any company has problems and they are normal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the great work you started few years back. It is working, Company is getting better every year. Great Job!
