Pros

Pay is not bad for Lincoln.

Cons

Gossip is a big factor. Employees are not valued. Too many management experiments that mostly end with big layoffs. You can get hired with big promises and get fired a few months later when there's a change in management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you change the business direction give it some time before trying to pick a different direction. Value your human assets. It takes time to train someone to do his\her job so often hiring and firing is actually hurts NRC business. People that are in fear of getting laid off all the time can't be productive.

    I have been working at NRC (National Research Corporation) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Associates are given a large amount of responsibility right away. The company has a fun youthful workforce, and has grown very consistently through a very strong sales team. Change is constant, which is exciting. It constantly reshapes itself or acquires new companies to help meet its markets needs. The company has a flat organizational structure, and is really focused on listening to the needs of its clients.

    Cons

    Decisions usually have to go through 1 or 2 key leaders. This creates a bottleneck and prevents the company from being as agile as it otherwise could be. Career development is limited because of the flat organization. A couple associates get opportunities for new challenges, but it is limited for most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to give associates more accountability to go along with the responsibility. This will help make the company more agile, and will help with career development. Since the organization is flat, career development won't come with job titles, but it could come with more accountability.

    Great people, great location, but sales > service

    Pros

    The people at NRC are the company's greatest asset. The people at NRC work hard, with integrity and respect, and they are accountable and generally work in a very cohesive, team-oriented manner. The office culture is positive because of the people. Clearly NRC has done a good job of hiring people who fit the culture. The work has meaning and purpose, as we seek to help healthcare organizations improve the experience of their patients. The work-life balance is very good. Life outside of work is valued just as much as hard work in the office.

    Cons

    The direction of the company is unclear. We've experienced big changes recently (example - COO resigned), and the future of the company's leadership and the structure is a bit up in the air.
    It's appears sales folks are valued more than service folks at NRC. While service is valued for the great work that is performed each day, the compensation received (not received) reflects that service is not as valued as sales, in spite of the very important role service plays in retention and upsells.
    Technology is not what it should be at a company like NRC. Using old systems and databases that are not necessarily conducive to the ever-changing landscape of healthcare and need to provide clients with the tools they need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In addition to providing quarterly financial updates to associates, which is nice to see (even at a high level), it would benefit associates to have more transparency from leadership in regards to the direction the company is headed.
