    I worked at Nsoro full-time

    Pros

    its not a bad place to get your foot in the door, you learn alot because you are juggling so much

    Cons

    low pay, we lost alot of people to pay issues. lack of training doesn't work for everyone and when your coworkers don't really know what they are doing, and aren't corrected for their incompetence or worse promoted because your life is harder. pm's play games by calling you and not giving written instructions. if you work there get directions in writing and save them.

    I have been working at Nsoro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A good place to learn about the AT&T Turfing Contract model

    Cons

    Females going into this company will typically earn 25-30% less than their male counterparts. Management is shakey at best. Employees typically only stick around for a year and there seems to be a revolvong door policy in place. This may be petty to some but as large as this company is and the profits they make; they don't even provide a Christmas party for their staff and refuse to donate towards one. This given the fact that by the time November rolls around and the deadlines approach to finalize the years projects, they expect staff to work around the clock with no benefit of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    The typical complaint from most employees is that they have managers who know less than they do, and are expected to do the work for them, this should change. There is also the typical 'old boys club' mentality deeply entrenched here; very disconcerting!

    I worked at Nsoro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can make contacts at other companies

    Cons

    Just about everything. The management is completely incompetent from VP down. They seriously have no clue about day to day operations. There is no structure or training so you will be yelled at from day one to do your job even if they dont tell you what it is. Don't try and ask any questions about process or anything else since they response is more yelling. My manager had no clue about what was supposed to be done or how to do it but told everyone to get things done. There was a 90% turnover rate the 10 months I was there. Seriously contemplate working at McDonalds before working here. It is simply the worst company on earth. The only reason they are in business is because of back room deals with AT&T.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    1) A handful of understanding individuals, managers, and other business contacts.
    2) Salary is decent. **Contingent if excessive mandatory OT (unpaid) isn't required.

    Cons

    1) Lack of Communication from Corporate to Field Offices.
    2) Failure of Corporate/Management to understand the hurdles they put in place when decisions are made without input.
    3) "Go go go" attitude when it is obvious that you are standing in quicksand and movement forward is harming current business and new business.
    4) 7 day work weeks @ 12-15 hours each day.
    5) Inefficient ways to track, monitor, judge work loads vs. staff.
    6) No Training for programs, jobs, etc... Just thrown to the wolves and hope you float.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. When directives are not passed down to those that will need the information the most, it hinders productivity. Chain of command to pass up concerns, issues, etc... often gets stopped at the person that doesn't want deal with it. This leaves the problem unresolved and ultimately gets bigger the longer it goes unresolved. Communication needs to be two ways, the field offices really need to have a say and need to be taken seriously.

    Pros

    Good benefits and insurance. Paid vacation/holidays.

    Cons

    Perhaps some of the worst politics I have ever seen in a company. Lack of cohesive process and procedures. Emphasis on favoritism over actual job performance. Extremely weak senior management that uses scope of the job as an excuse for inability to meet goals. Inability to discuss dissatisfaction with treatment from upper management. Seen more as property than company asset. Inconsistent standards and lack of training across the board. Employees more concerned with protecting their own jobs rather than trying to maintain any type of positive work ethic. Another thing to keep in mind with this company is that rules are enforced with a double standard. If you choose to work with them make sure you record every conversation that you have with people that has the potential to have a negative impact on your professional reputation. As another reviewer implied not all the business is on the level.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to actually listen to the issues that your field personnel feel that are important. Have an emphasis on having a succesful project and hire people who are qualified to fill the positions. Learn how to create a team environment instead of running a fragmented project where trust is inherently lacking.

    Pros

    The pro's of working for NSORO is the amount of knowlegdge gained in a short amount of time. This is due to the amount of pressure put on employee's and the unrealistic demands made by upper management.

    Cons

    No paid overtime!!!!!! No balance of work and time off.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be balance between work and time off. Pay your employee's for overtime.

    Pros

    Health Benefits are comparable to other companies

    Cons

    24/7 work enviornment, even if your not supose to be 24/7! They need experienced senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Take an interest in your local employees and start to treat them as an asset to the company instead of treating them as property, then maybe you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate!
