    Pros

    Next Century is a company obsessed with excellence and fixated on competence at every level. The company develops its employees and supports their ambitions however possible.

    Cons

    Although the company has excellent benefits, Next Century's single-minded dedication to delivering exceptional products and developing high-performing employees means that the company does not cater to those who require "perks" or incentives to excel. If you are one of those people, take note.

    I worked at Next Century full-time

    Pros

    - Next Century puts genuine emphasis on their company's mission and they stand by their core values. -They offer competitive benefits. -Everyone at the company is generally nice and respectful. -Excellent place to work if you are early or late in your career. -Excellent place for software engineers -Offers employee coaching program, which is optional, but a nice way to connect with other employees and grow in other areas.

    Cons

    -Due to the nature of the industry, a lot of work is dependent on what contracts are available. -The company is flat and does not believe in an organizational tree, especially since the organization is defined based on the customer and where you are placed. This is both helpful and hurtful, as this empowers all employees to be able to participate in the company outside of their normal role. The flipside is that there is no support when an actual problem arises. Upper management believes that any problem a person faces is due to, at least some part, of the individual's actions and can be resolved by the individual who has the problem. This is great in theory but in reality creates problems bigger than the individual and upper management seems to turn a blind eye to it. If someone is having an interpersonal issue or a greater issue on their project, it tends to go ignored until the only solution is to leave the company. -Next Century is great if you are early or late in your career, but if you are looking for a place that generates career growth, Next Century is not for you. Most people will spend a few years happy until they feel stunted in their role, with only the ability to move laterally, not up, and are forced to find it elsewhere. -This does not affect me but I have been told by several women at the company that their maternity leave has much to be desired. -High performers tend to get burned out quickly.
