    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time

    Pros

    At NCSA everyone is working towards the important mission of helping kids find the right college fit. The culture is amazing and we literally get to be part of a giant team filled with former college athletes. You'd think such a group could be cutthroat but to the contrary, I've never been in an environment where I felt more supported by my peers. We have the opportunity to compete with ourselves and to earn a great living...

    Cons

    NCSA can be a challenging environment with lofty goals and high expectations. It can also be hard to find time to connect with busy families during the day which can cause some juggling or nontraditional hours. The company is quick to change things which takes some getting used to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to team members and making changes for the better.

    I worked at NCSA Next College Student Athlete for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. A young and fun culture. Competitive atmosphere, turkey bowl, fun holiday parties. 2. Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    1. NCSA has lost its way. The job has become more about putting through anyone and everyone to increase the chances of profit than about really helping student athletes. 2. This is a high pressure sales role with unrealistic metrics and expectations. You WILL be working 8-6 every day and working weekends. Work life balance is non existent. 3. There is no career path, here. Management hand picks who they want to groom...

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better so that your top salespeople don't leave for better opportunities. Stop praying on the hopes and dreams of children as a business practice. Remodel your business model from a bait and switch to a more transparent sale. They way NCSA is handling new business now is UNETHICAL.
