    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 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.

    Advice to Management

    Let the head recruiting coaches who talk to athletes be themselves. If they have points to talk about fine but a script takes the personal feel away! We were hired because of experience and our backgrounds coaching it is limited when we have to focus on the script. Anyone can read from a script. Take employees comments to heart if one person says it it's likely 10% of more of the company feels that way.

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

    Pros

    LOVE the employees! I have met life long friends here. Managers are supportive and will help develop you professionally. Schedule is VERY flexible.

    Cons

    The pay is hands down the worst part to this job. Though, scheduling is very flexible, many late night and weekend hours are required.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work to put together a better compensation package. The pay and cost of living in Chicago do not match with this company.

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

    Pros

    I get to help students with life changing college decisions on a daily basis. The training I have received in the first several months is very thorough. Management has consistently shown a willingness to listen and change things that need changing. Getting to work from home right away is also a big plus.

    Cons

    Can be some odd hours, have to work at times that families can talk on the phone, so several nights/weekends, but that can be balanced by working from home.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Great atmosphere working with people who share the Same passion as you do for sports. Great company who truly cares about its employees and strives to find ways to improve.

    Cons

    There have been no downsides so far. This company has been awesome to me and I couldn't ask for a better company to begin my career in sports.

    Advice to Management

    Have a little bit more organization, other then that I believe you have great training techniques as well as great people in charge who run the business.

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

    Pros

    We are all on a team here at NCSA. I was a student athlete that went through the recruiting process with NCSA. I found a great program, had an amazing college experience and now I have been working at NCSA to help guide, educate, and assist student athletes through the process. Everyone here is passionate about giving the students and families we work with a competitive advantage in the recruiting process. I work...

    Cons

    If recruiting was easy, everyone would play a sport in college. But the reality is, recruiting isn't an easy process and you have to be patient and put in a lot of hard with families to help them reach their goals. We continue to grow at a very rapid pace so there is a lot of change that takes place. You have to be able to adjust and adapt as the company continues to reach new heights!

    Pros

    Opportunity to work from home (because they have physically outgrown their work space and can't fit anyone else in the small space). Fantastic co-workers at entry and lower levels, who have great ideas and passion for what they do (until they find out how awful management is and just give up). Wonderful opportunity to counsel families on the recruiting process (until management tells you not to give families TOO...

    Cons

    Executive positions have no idea what's going on in the company. People in management don't understand what it is that their employees are supposed to do, and therefore cannot communicate expectations to their staffs effectively. Anyone who actually understands their job and does it well, quickly gets railroaded by their superior because they are seen as a threat. Company does not have enough staff to handle...

    Advice to Management

    Need a complete overhaul. Need qualified people at the top who understand the jobs of the people they oversee. Upper Management all the way down to the bottom need to completely update communication, because their is none! When you have people who are passionate about their work, find a way to utilize their strengths, instead of stifling their efforts to support your company. You're making money, how about you...
