    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Remote, flexibility, well-qualified peers (work side by side with so many former high level coaches and athletes), making a difference and having an impact on people's lives. Everyone in this company genuinely cares about helping kids find the right fit school. The bottomline is always brought to the forefront so that business side of things doesn't ever let us lose track of the ultimate goal and mission!

    Cons

    some weekend hours, some late nights, a lot of work to balance

    Thank you for sharing such an awesome review with our current and future teammates! Making a difference is at the forefront of our mission here at NCSA. Although we know helping families can be a lot to balance sometimes, we are extremely grateful to have dedicated teammates that are willing to go above and beyond for our families.

    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility with the work schedule. The ability to set your own schedule is great when you have kids or coach. They have your back, like a team would.

    Cons

    Bonuses are dependent on customers satisfaction. Feels like the sales team is over paid (understands their role) however, as a HRC sometimes we are working with our clients for 6+ years. Huge client load and many loving parts. Fast moving company.

    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get to change lives each day - legitimately helping kids who may not normally have a chance to go to college or compete at that level & guide them through the process.

    Cons

    Each day is a new challenge, you are working primarily with teenagers - which can have it own's inherent struggles. It is a constantly-changing environment based on your client load.

    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Talk Sports -Work from home - Advancement because people leave frequently. - Go starting place for young graduates not for a career.

    Cons

    -They give you scripts so you can be yourself to help kids. -Some employees work remote but still work late night and weekends. -Preach Value but most families don't see it. -Don't listen to employees review (such as this) - Frequent changes not necessarily for the better. - Assuming there is consent but they record every phone call with families (hope they know) most families would not be happy.

    I appreciate your feedback and agree strongly that it’s important that we let our teammates bring their own personality, experience and personal touch into helping our families. Our outlines are simply meant to help provide a guide for structuring our calls. We will continue to work hard to ensure the team understands we value their experience and want their help to bring our coaching sessions to life. I’m sorry to hear you feel your only opportunity for growth is if someone leaves. Our turnover rates are actually average or below average for certain departments, but as you know, NCSA overall is also growing, which means lots of opportunities for people to step up and move up at the company! Regarding hours, we do our best to be very upfront about the schedule and hours our team has to work in order to be available when our families are available and are reaching out to us. We will keep your feedback in mind for future hires so they fully understand when they are working their 40 hours per week. If you have any other concerns, I encourage you to bring them up directly to your supervisor or to our HR team so we can help improve your personal overall job satisfaction, and for future teammates as well.
