    Pros

    - company adapts fast to feedback from its employees
    - management actually listens and thoughtfully responds
    - changes are swift and impactful to the employees quality of life
    - getting better daily through a leadership team that works together well
    - the leadership has faith in their employee's capabilities
    - the leadership is always looking for new ways to better equip the staff
    - the leadership values the opinions and ideas of the staff very much
    - honoring those who came before you is a way of life at NCSA, it's great!
    - tenure and loyalty is rewarded heavily, the longer you're here, the more you're brought into the fold.

    Cons

    - some managers should not have been promoted to management and they have a tendency toward heavy-handedness and poor bedside manner.
    - employees who are learning and growing can be hurt by immature managers with poor people skills.
    - managers can be nice on monday and nasty on tuesday, it all depends on the sales numbers.
    -instead of managers figuring out better ways to develop their teams' skills, they can be very harsh and demoralizing.

    Advice to Management

    i deleted my previous 2-star rating. i had very harsh words for the company in the past but i am honestly very impressed with the changes that have been made at NCSA. as with every mid to large company there is still room for improvement with some aspects of middle management that i believe will iron itself out with time. i have had a front-row seat to witness the impact my feedback on GD has had and i have nothing but praise for this leadership team now and their willingness to grow and improve and their humility to change. even through the coronavirus challenges, they've managed to adapt swiftly and become an even closer team persevering through adversity. great job, ncsa!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NCSA Next College Student Athlete.

    Interview

    I interviewed over the phone for this position as I was out of state while applying. The interview process was standard to what I’ve experienced in the past.

    I was offered the position and they jumped right into talking about start date and training. I backtracked and asked about salary. They gave me a number and when I asked them about flexibility the woman I had been speaking to told me she would check on the flexibility of the salary and then get back to me, and then I never heard back - no phone call, no email.

    They offered me the position and when I tried to discuss salary they completely ghosted me, they never even called or emailed me back to let me know that the salary wasn’t negotiable. I was very disappointed with how they handled what is a very standard practice when it comes to hiring and it certainly left a bad taste in my mouth regarding their professionalism and whether I would even want to work for a company that treats potential employees that way.
